Looks like the casting director for Law & Order: SVU has followed his/her basic instinct:
Sharon Stone has been cast on the drama for a four-episode arc that starts in April.
The Oscar-nominated actress - who actually won an Emmy for appearing on three episodes of The Practice in 2004 - will portray a former cop-turned-prosecutor that goes head-to-head with Benson, Stabler, and the gang.
“It is obviously a thrill and a delight to have a star of Sharon’s wattage and importance joining SVU,” SVU boss Dick Wolf told Entertainment Weekly.
Earlier this week, Mischa Barton was also cast on the show. She'll guest star as a prostitute on a March episode.
