We all knew this was going to happen eventually. In classic “ripped from the headlines” fashion, the story of Anna Nicole’s murder is going to be portrayed in an upcoming episode of Law and Order: Criminal Intent. Kristy Swanson is slated to portray Anna Nicole Smith and Jon Lovitz is slated to portray the money grubbing lawless lawyer Howard K. Stern. It will be the first time a fictionalized version of Anna’s story will be aired on tv, and the episode is expected to air on NBC in May.
I think Kristy fits the role of Anna well, she does kind of look like her, but Jon Lovitz as Howard K. Stern? That seems like a stretch.
