Mischa Barton, Lee Tergesen Headed To 'Law & Order: SVU'

Mischa Barton is heading to “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”

The former “O.C.” star, whose most recent series, “The Beautiful Life,” was canceled by The CW in the fall, will play Gladys, a lady of the night. Mischa’s episode — opposite series stars Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni — will air on March 3, Zap2it.com reported.

But Mischa isn’t the only star gearing up for a guest spot on the show. Lee Tergesen, who starred on HBO’s prison drama series “Oz” opposite Christopher, will appear in an upcoming episode, Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello reported.

Lee will play a crazy religious man accused of murder.

Fans can expect the former “Oz” couple to engage in “lots of sweaty interrogation scenes,” a source told the columnist.

And as previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Sharon Stone will also join the “SVU” cast for a four-episode arc as a cop-turned-prosecutor.
