Sharon Stone to appear on 'Law & Order: SVU'

Sharon Stone is bringing her basic instincts to the “Law & Order” franchise.

The actress is getting set to guest star in four episodes of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” where she will play a former police officer, turned prosecutor.

This isn’t the first time that the 51-year old actress has dipped her toes into television's legal waters. In 2004, Stone won an Emmy Award for her guest appearance in ABC legal drama "The Practice".

Network censors be wary. I can only imagine what this lady will do to win a case!

    ok. Sharon Stone has definately made her mark in the entertainment world, but I think a little too much attention is falling on her with this announcement. Law and Order SVU is an excellent show with excellent talent Christopher Maloni and Mariska Hargitay blow my mind!! Not to mention Richard Belzer and Ice-T, would also be a crime. This is a great show, with a great cast, who wouldnt want to work such a talented team! OH and btw, off the air in 6 months? Its already been on the air for nearly a decade, what are you thinkin?

    Team Meryl...I wouldn't watch Ms Stone in any show or movie. She's not classy and very rude.

    Law and Order rocks! Reality TV is a generational aberration!
    Once you begin to really live your lives, you'll stop thinking reality TV is so cool, give it up!!!!!!!!!

    Sharon Stone and Mariska Hartgitay, on the same show, at the same time? SVU just moved up another notch on the "Must watch" list.

    Two of the classiest women to grace screens big and small. Thank you NBC!!

    Sharon Stone an "ancient has-been." What planet are you living on man/woman. Granted she is not 25, however, she looks pretty hot at 50-something. She is not cutting , nipping, injecting, and tucking in order to claw her way back to looking 20ish. She has done some really great movies and earned her respect as an A-list star. She may be a little wacky sometimes with her clothes, or comments, but that is what I love about her.

    Remember her in Total Recall? Her performance in Casino was great and The Mightly was a great movie and Stone gave a great supporting performance. If you haven't seen it check it out.

    @Debra R: It's because women above the age of 40, with a few exceptions, have a much harder time landing big roles, or any roles at all sometimes, regardless of how good they are.

    the first thing that popped into my head was a line from First Wives Club – there are only three ages for women in Hollywood: Babe, District Attorney and Driving Miss Daisy. Looks like Sharon has moved into phase two.

    Sharon is the bomb! So is LAO, SVU – I don't know what I would do without LAO reruns!

    Why do people say nasty things? Don't say anything. To the poster who mentioned Casino, you are right, she was phenomenal in that movie.

    This lady is amazing!! She is always doing things and never gives up no matter what is thrown in her way. It will be very interesting to see her as a lawyer. Go for it Ms. Stone!!

    This is one of my all time favorite shows. Glad they also change DA's,
    they seem to miscast that person. It's Mariska,Ice-T, and the writers
    that keep this show current, interesting, and fresh. Keep bringing
    on good gueststars but the above mentioned will keep me coming
    back.

    No, 51 is not old by any stretch. One day if you wake up at 93, you'd give anything to be 51 again.

    I read that Tom Hanks loves this show and wants to be on it also. That would make a great episode I think.Intresting to see what he would play though...hopefully not a bad guy!!

    Anyone who thinks Sharon Stone is not a good actress should rent "Casino" ASAP. She was GREAT! You go girl!

    Age is only important when talking about Sharon Stone. Compare the box office receipts from Basic Instinct and Basic Instinct 2 if you wonder why.

    SVU off the air in 6 months? Not a chance BaFota. SVU is one of the best shows...aside from Lost.

    Sharon said once that she was the only actress in Hollywood who tells her real age. It was probably her idea to mention it.

    This will be interesting. What has she done in lately?? Can't really think of anything but with the things I have seen her in a while back she is OK. Love the show but think she has a run for her money in the looks department against Mariska Hargitay

    MS Stone will pump up the ratings. She is a great actress and very underrated by critics.

    Sharon Stone is not only a beauty, she is an Actor's Actor – smart, serious, takes real risks, and finds the delicate balance between charactrerizations that are realistic and really out there- any scenes she has with Mariska Hargitay will undoubtedly be wonderful.

    Good catch, SVU !

    I had always like Sharon Stone until I saw her in person at a benefit. She was rude and unkind to people around here. It was an eye opener.

    "Ancient has-been" huh. Dude if you think 51 is old I probably have shirts older than you are! She looks great to me and I suppose Myley Cyrus looks great to you so different strokes, so what.

    Reality TV? What's that? Oh, ya, one of those shows I never watch as, if I want reality I don't need to watch TV to see it. Not interested in other people's trivial lives. Sharon Stone is eye candy no matter what her age. I'll be sure to watch those episodes.

    BaFota, you too will be old one day. I hope you are not treated with the unnecessary meanness you display here. Guess what? We spend the largest number of our lives "old". It is about time the 20-30 year old crowd was not the only one reflected in a TV show.

    Once again, another ancient has-been used in an attempt to boost ratings for a show that will be off the air in 6 months if reality TV fans have any say. Ugh. Give up.

    Sharon Stone? 51? Really – she looks younger then she did in Basic Instinct. Good genes....? Nah! Good for her though, another top rate guest star for Law & Order!
