Roger Bart, Anna Chlumsky and Raul Esparza to Guest Star on LAW & ORDER: SVU, Fall 2013
Award-winning actors Roger Bart, Anna Chlumsky and Raul Esparza will guest star on an upcoming episode of "Law & Order: SVU." The episode, titled "Twenty-Five Acts" will air next fall and centers on the author of a best-selling erotic novel (Chlumsky) who accuses a high-profile talk show host (Bart) of a brutal rape. The SVU detectives face an uphill battle when they find that her account of the rape is exactly like the chapters in her book, and along with the DA's office (Esparza), they struggle to keep the case from turning into a media circus.
Bart last starred on Broadway in the musical "Young Frankenstein" as the title character, Dr. Frederick Frankenstein, and can be seen recurring on TV in this summer's USA mini-series "Political Animals" opposite Sigourney Weaver, Carla Gugino, and James Wolk.
Chlumsky currently stars in HBO's new hit series "Veep" opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Upcoming film credits include "Bert and Arnie's Guide to Friendship," directed by Jeff Kaplan, and "Sam," a John A. Gallagher film set to release in 2013. Chlumsky became a household name when she starred alongside Macaulay Culkin as Vada Sultenfuss in the 1991 film, "My Girl."
Since making his Broadway debut, Esparza has become only the second actor to receive Tony nominations in all four eligible acting categories. Most recently he took on the role of con artist Jonas Nightingale in the Broadway musical adaptation of "Leap of Faith" directed by Christopher Ashley. TV credits include "Law & Order," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "Pushing Daisies" and "A Gifted Man."
