law and order svu

Whoa Nelly, we’re not even sure how this is going to go down, but the baby geniuses behind “Law & Order: SVU” have gone and done it again. After their amazing “ripped from the headlines” Chris Brown/Rihanna episode, they’ve now announced they’re going to do a show inspired by both the Trayvon Martin shooting and Paula Deen’s racism scandal.

Now how is this going to work? No clue, but we do know who’ll be playing Paula Deen…

“Law & Order: SVU” Is Doing A Chris Brown And Rihanna-Inspired Edisode

Ripped From The Headlines!

“Law & Order” is notorious for ripping its plots from the headlines, so I’m sort of surprised it took the show this long to do an episode inspired by Chris Brown and Rihanna’s abusive relationship. In the episode airing next week, “a promising singer is brutally attacked by her boyfriend, a popular hip hop star,” but she refuses to aid the police or the prosecution in their case against him. But, twist! He suddenly turns up dead … so, who’s the killer? Dun-dun! Promo above.

Mike Tyson To Appear On “Law & Order: SVU,” Surprisingly Not Playing A Rapist

You guys, I love “Law & Order: SVU” and want to marry it. Maybe it’s (definitely) Stockholm Syndrome, because it’s on 43 times a day on basic cable, but I cannot get enough of Stabler, Benson, and the irony that Ice-T is now playing a cop.  Like, I dream about one day getting to the magical “L&O: SVU” set, maybe playing a dead body, maybe bumping into Richard Belzer at craft services and trading pictures of our appliances. It’s just like my perverse fascination with Lifetime movies where women are always getting murdered or unwittingly married to serial killer cops played by Rob Lowe.

So that’s why I am all up on the “SVU” beat, and can inform you that Mike Tyson will be appearing in a future episode this season. And dun-dun-dun, he’ll be playing a convicted murder with the following cookie-cutter fabricated backstory… Continue reading

Okay, so maybe over the holiday weekend I got waylaid by a “Law & Order: SVU” marathon. The plot of this particular episode is sort of beside the point, but I’ll tell you anyway — it’s a ripped-from-the-headlines story abut a bunch of girls who make a pregnancy pact and a crazy mother (played by Debi Lazar, holllllller) who taunts one of the girls into suicide by pretending to be her baby-daddy, a graffiti artist and hip hop dude named Dizzer. Annnnnnyway the important things to know are that Dizzer works at a faux record store called Skribble Skratch and wears his hat precariously placed atop his head. Ice-T is not amused.

“I wouldn’t mind knowing a little more about Fin. I’ve never been home. I don’t have a car. I don’t even know if I’ve kissed a girl in 13 years.” 

–Ice-T, on his “Law & Order: SVU” character Fin, and Fin’s relative lack of back story. Not that anybody on the show has much of one, but we at least know a bit about where Stabler and Benson are coming from. Come on Dick Wolf, give the guy some storyline. [TV Guide]

“It was so awful. So stupid. Me and my boyfriend — although I [didn't] look old enough to have a boyfriend — went and beat up these fat people, and at the end of the show you find out that I used to be obese and I hate fat people. It’s ridiculous. Who would ever do that? Who would beat someone up because they’re fat?”

Rooney Mara tells Allure magazine about her first television appearance, a spot on “Law & Order: SVU.” That does sound ridiculous, but as “SVU” bases much of its material on real headlines, some schmuck out there would do that. And heck, everyone has to start somewhere, even if it is as a crazed person with an eye out for the obese. [Dlisted]
