As reported recently, Law and Order
will be returning for its 19th season earlier than originally scheduled. With NBC's revamped schedule, the long-running crime drama has now been added to the Wednesday nigh block, beginning November 5. But aside from the show's sooner-than-expected comeback, fans can expect a lot of guest stars this season. One of which is Katee Sackhoff
, who is perhaps best known for her role as Captain Kara "Starbuck" Thrace on the Sci Fi Channel television program Battlestar Galactica.
In addition to Battlestar Galactica
, where she won a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Television Series in 2006, Sackhoff has also appeared on Bionic Woman
as Sarah Corvus, on Cold Case
as Terri Maxwell and as Nell Bickford on The Education of Max Bickford.
According to Zap2it.com, Sackhoff will join the cast of Law and Order
to face down a more human set of adversaries as a murder suspect in an episode that is yet to have an airdate. Moreover, her Law and Order
guest stint coincides with a starring role in Lost and Found
, a pilot Dick Wolf is producing for NBC.
Meanwhile, Sackhoff is just one of the many well-known guest stars set to appear on Law and Order.
Other celebrities expected to grace the show include Ned Beatty (The Shooter, CSI, Homicide: Life on the Street
), Sherry Stringfield
(Tell Me You Love Me, ER, Third Watch
), Jena Malone (The Ballad of Jack and Rose, Into the Wild
), Tom Everett Scott
(Cashmere Mafia, Saved, ER
), and Vivica A. Fox (Curb Your Enthusiasm, 1-800-Missing, All of Us
), among others.
Law and Order
stars Jeremy Sisto as Cyrus Lupo, Alana De La Garza as Connie Rubirosa, Jesse L. Martin as Edward Green, Linus Roache as Michael Cutter, S. Epatha Merkerson
as Anita Van Buren, and Sam Waterston
as Jack McCoy.
