Just a quick update to mention that Mischa’s scenes from her episode of SVU titled “Savior” are now available for download. Let me know if there are issues with the links.
Screen captures from Mischa’s appearance on Law & Order: SVU in the episode titled “Savior” have been uploaded. She was amazing, I enjoyed the episode a whole lot.
Law & Order: SVU returns next week with double episodes. First hour is Kathy Griffin’s episode and second hour is Mischa’s episode. Check out the promo below where both Mischa and Kathy receive special mentions. Remember: March 3rd, 10/9c, NBC.
Here are two episode stills from Mischa’s upcoming guest appearance on Law & Order: SVU. Her episode is titled Savior and will be airing on March 3rd, 2010 on NBC. I’ll hopefully replace these small photos with HQ versions shortly.
As you’ve all no doubt read, the tabloids have decided to write fictional stories about Mischa forgetting lines and not getting along with cast on Law & Order. If you follow the mischa-b Twitter page, you’ll have seen re-tweets that I’ve passed on from crew on the show dimissing these stories. And now Mariska Hargitay has come to Mischa’s defense:
Mariska Hargitay now with Shaun. She puts rumors to rest about Mischa Barton. She said the former “Beautiful Life” actress is “an amazing professional, lovely to work with. She does good work.” She looked to our camera and said, “This gossip is fiction!” Access Hollywood
264 candids of Mischa filming her guest role on Law & Order: SVU have been uploaded. Big thanks to Katya, Mel and Adrian for all supplying pictures. Both Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni were on set too. Mischa plays a pregnant prostitute which will reportedly be episode 15 of the show titled “Savior”, tentatively due to air March 3rd on NBC.
Where do you go after playing a glamorous model named Sonja Stone on The CW’s short-lived The Beautiful Life? How about to Law & Order: SVU as a hooker named Gladys? SVU executive producer Neal Baer has been twittering teases about Mischa’s casting with the clues: Bongo, Singer and Austin. The Texas/Bongo clues got me all excited that he was bringing Matthew McConaughey on to the show, but Baer called me up to exclusively reveal the casting of Mischa, who has played characters with those last three names. She played Katie Singer on Once and Again, Betty Ann Bongo on an animated series called Kablam!, and (Baer was really reaching) a character named Vicky Austin in a 2002 TV Movie called A Ring of Endless Light. (All he had to do was say Cooper, and we would have known he was talking about The OC star.)
Baer says he first took a shine to Mischa when she was a kid actress in “The Sixth Sense.” “She’s gone on to do amazing work both on TV and on the stage,” says Baer, who thought casting Mischa as a hooker would surprise viewers.
The episode, set to air March 3 (after the Olympics conclude) will reveal that Mischa’s character is hiding a secret that will prove complicating for Mariska Hargitay’s Benson. I’d just like to be on set when the AD’s yell out, “No, I said Mischa, not Mariska!”
