Just in time for May sweeps, "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" is rolling out its Anna Nicole Smith-inspired episode. It's brimming with classic "ripped from the headlines" goodness!
Kristy Swanson plays Lorelei Mailer, a blonde bombshell whose life closely mirrors that of Anna Nicole. No, she didn't eat her way into the role -- she just had a kid. Comedian David Cross plays her manager/advisor/boyfriend/lap dog. That doesn't sound familiar at all.
In this clip, both characters are interviewed by police after Lorelei's son is killed. It's what they call in the biz, "Art imitating life." The Anna Nicole-themed episode airs May 8 at 9:00 PM on NBC.
