Sharon Stone to play a prosecutor on 'Law & Order: SVU'

January 5, 2010 |  2:20 pm

“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” has landed a high-profile guest star to spice up its 11th season. Sharon Stone is joining the NBC drama for four episodes, playing a prosecutor who used to be a police officer, the network announced today. Stone has not yet begun shooting the episodes, which will air later this season.

“It is obviously a thrill and a delight to have a star of Sharon's wattage and importance joining 'SVU,'” executive producer Dick Wolf said in a statement.

The “Basic Instinct” star is no stranger to television: She won an Emmy for her role on “The Practice” and also appeared on “Will & Grace.”

“SVU” is known for its stunt casting, as Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello noted. Earlier this season, the program featured guest turns by Hilary Duff and Carol Burnett.
