Anna Nicole Smith Story to be Portrayed on Law and Order: Criminal Intent

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.

    Can’t Law and Order be sued for that sort of thing?

  2. Jess says:

    Jon Lovitz is waaay to likeable for this role.

    I agree with Jess, Jon Lovitz rarely plays a creep, and he’s too funny to be taken seriously as a creep. I’m envisioning him doing this role like one of his old SNL characters, the subliminal guy.

    I think Jon will knock this out of the gamepark. He is a terrific actor.

    You know who was very good on L&O recently? Bob Saget. He played a overly protective husband who accidently killed his wife by injecting her with GSP system. Riped from headlines who did that?

    This will show once and for all that he is the Master Thespian!
