Good news! Mischa Barton will guest star in a future episode of Law & Order: SVU, according to TV Guide.
Mischa will play a hooker named Gladys in an episode set to air March 3. Her character is hiding a secret that will be complicating for Mariska Hargitay’s Benson, TV Guide said.
The interesting part is SVU executive producer Neal Baer has been twittering clues about Mischa’s casting. His clues were Bongo, Singer and Austin.
TV Guide reporter William Keck was thinking the guest star was Matthew McConaughey, but Bauer called the writer to exclusively reveal Mischa’s casting.
Bauer said Mischa’ has played characters with those last three names – way in the past. She played Katie Singer on Once and Again, Betty Ann Bongo on animated series Kablam! and Vicky Austin in a TV movie called A Ring of Endless Light. Would you have guessed Mischa? I wouldn’t have.
Now, throw out some references to The O.C., and we would have been all over it.
Bauer told TV Guide he has been a fan of Mischa since she was a child actress in The Sixth Sense.
This of course, will be Mischa’s first work on TV since the cancellation of The Beautiful Life in September. It’s a good start.
