First Look at Patti Smith's Acting Debut on 'Law and Order: CI'


In her first acting performance, the Godmother of Punk plays mythology professor Cleo who helps Detective Goren figure out the meaning behind Icarus.

The upcoming episode of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" has a storyline based on "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" which has suffered many stage mishaps. The June 19 outing will also mark Patti Smith's acting debut and a sneak peek to her performance has been released via TV Guide.

In the episode, punk rocker Smith plays Columbia University mythology professor Cleo who helps figure out the meaning behind Icarus. In the clip, she is seen getting a visit from Vincent D'Onofrio's Detective Robert Goren who along with his partner Detective Alexandra Eames (Kathryn Erbe) investigates a Broadway musical after an actor dies while performing a stunt.

Called "Icarus", the episode will also feature Cynthia Nixon as Amanda Reese, a high-strung and larger-than-life director behind the play. She is one of the suspects in the case.

The tenth and final season of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" airs every Sunday at 9/8c on USA Network.
