While she has no regular commitment to any TV series, the actress spares sometime to guest star in the NBC series' March episode.
Mischa Barton who is no longer attached to "The Beautiful Life: TBL" since the series was canceled early into the first season, is coming to "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" for a guest starring stint. TV Guide magazine said she will play a hooker named Gladys.
Executive Producer Neal Baer is a personal fan of the actress, hinting on his Twitter the three words that are related to the next guest star, "Bongo", "Singer" and "Austin". In the clarification of the casting news, Baer told TV Guide that it is Barton who has played roles with those last names. "She's gone on to do amazing work both on TV and on the stage," Baer said, adding that the cameo will "surprise" viewers.
On how she would incorporate to the story, TV Guide said, "Mischa's character is hiding a secret that will prove complicating for Mariska Hargitay's Benson." The episode is to air on March 3 after the Winter Olympics.
In the meantime, it was reported that "TBL" is revived through YouTube. The show, however, will only air those already in production but did not get the chance to go on air. Producer Ashton Kutcher said should the show garner good rating on the video sharing website, then there could be more episodes going into production.
