Law & Order: SVU has tapped Today's Hoda Kotb to guest star in an October episode.
She will be joined by Ron Rifkin (Alias), Brian D’Arcy James (Smash), Stevie Lynn Jones (Crisis), and Dana Wheeler-Nicholson (Friday Night Lights).
In the episode, titled “Producer’s Backend,” Rifkin reprises his role as Counselor Marvin Exley, who’s representing Tensley (Jones), a young Hollywood starlet in trouble with the law… again. Tensley’s downward spiral causes Benson and the SVU to think there’s a dark, underlying reason for her erratic behavior. James guest stars as a top-level producer, known for giving Tensley and a score of other famous teens their big break. Nicholson will play Tensley’s mom.
