A Hollywood star gets arrested for drunk driving, and in the process of getting arrested, he starts hurling anti-Semitic remarks. Yeah, you know the story. Well, now Hollywood's most notorious arrest of the year is getting the "Law & Order" treatment.
What, you were expecting it to be an episode of "Ghost Whisperer?"
Seeing as Mel Gibson was probably too busy atoning to play the part, the "L&O" people got comedy legend Chevy Chase to play the role of Mitch Carroll. He's a TV star who gets pulled over for drunk driving, implicated in a murder, and somehow along the way, manages to throw the word "Jew" into every other sentence. Such a shonda!
"I wasn't familiar enough with what happened to Mel," Chase says. "He's a good friend of mine -- I haven't seen him in years -- but I had never seen any prejudice in him."
Check out Chase in "Law & Order" when it airs this Friday night at 10PM ET/PT on NBC.
