I'm feeling far less ranty this week than I did last week, so let's see how the Battle this week plays out. I have very few shows that I can glaze out on and over the years the "Law & Order" trifecta has worked quite well when I have sick weekends and they have no programming other than the cops & lawyers show that they paid a buttload to have the rights to broadcast in syndication. The Special Victims Unit version of the show has always been a bit more soap opera, very salacious, and it's produced a lot of bright faces that went on to bigger projects afterwards. Here are three of my favorites from you to choose from. And yes, you can blame the fact that Christopher Meloni (completely underrated actor because of his long-term association with that show) is joining the cast of "True Blood" this weekend as my reasoning for using my artistic license to not cater to the caterwauling demands to cover other options.
Amanda Seyfried had already been in a criminal role as her character's ghost haunted the first season of "Veronica Mars" before she got the role of a bipolar chick who runs over a kid with her car because she claims that her prescribed medication shouldn't be forced on her. That's only after she loses her virginity in a gang bang fashion, accuses the dudes of rape and later has to admit that she's just got a case of CB (Crazy Bitch).
You might be scratching your head trying to remember when Elizabeth Banks had to scramble for work and ended up as a guest star on this last-ditch show. I, however, refuse to forget the episode she was in. That's because her character was married to Mark Paul (Zack Morris) Gosselaar who was hospitalized after being attacked, falsely suspected as being a victim of rape and later discovered to be a gay-for-pay porn star. Who could NOT love that episode? Especially when you figure out that Banks' character beat Miri to the punch.
Hayden Panties might have been saving lives when she was the invincible cheerleader on "Heroes," but she was busy giving blow jobs in stock rooms in exchange for expensive couture clothing when she starred as a high schooler gone wrong on SVU. It turns out that the little blonde tart was guilty of far worse than needing to decide which label deserved a spit and which label garnered a swallow. Hayden was on more than one episode of the show, as it the case for a number of regular character actors, but damned if I can remember what the other one was.
Which guest L&O:SVU hottie most makes you want to break out the furry handcuffs?-span>
