pawneeshorty replied to your post: If you’re looking to fill time I’d love to know who you would want for Comedians on Procedurals (as if that’s a thing I didn’t just make up an hour ago…) and if you have specifics that’s an added bonus!Jim Gaffigan was also a murderous father of quintuplets (or some large number or identical kids) on a different Law and Order!
OMG YES! Mike Sho was there toooooo.
http://www.tv.com/shows/law-order/reality-bites-1299798/ (Pawneeshorty helpfully provided this link for us) I think it was ripped from the headlines of the Gosselins, but Jim’s character wasn’t swaddled in Ed Hardy.
That’s RIGHT! I forgot about that, but he was great on reggo L&O. Elizabeth Banks was on an SVU a while back, now I’m trying to think of others. And let’s not forget Dennis Duffy as a regular now on SVU (guys I might watch too much SVU…)
I feel like we need to loop Liz/Lizdexia on this one because she knows about a lot of these comedian type people on procedurals.
Damn right I do!
Admittedly I can only really speak as to SVU (and Criminal Intent on occasion), but off the top of my head, you had:
- Rainn Wilson as a creepy janitor
- Will Arnett as a pedophile travel agent
- James Urbaniak as a doctor who infected his girlfriends with zoonotic viruses (this was on CI but it was such a creeptastic episode, “Zoonotic” from one of the first couple seasons)
- Also on CI, Stephen Colbert as some dude involved with a Catholic church art scandal
- Jane Krakowski was on a really great SVU episode that also starred Rent’s Anthony Rapp as her equally creepy brother, oh man it was so good
- Robin Williams was on a really awesome episode a few years ago
I think I actually had a whole list on this topic somewhere, but I’d have to search for it.
Benson finds child. “Hi sweetie. I’m Olivia. What’s your name?”
Benson tells someone why the child is damaged. “He drew a monster and called it, ‘daddy.’ Something’s wrong here.”
Benson finds suspect and interrogates him. “Well, guess what? We found your semen. Everywhere. Not really sure how you can explain that, huh? Yeah. We found it. Not so tough, huh?” Half-smiles.
Benson somehow faces the suspect one-on-one after suspect is freed/escapes. “Come on, now. You don’t want to do this. You can still walk away. It’s not too late.”
Benson gets into a bloody fight. Struggle ensues. She wins. Goes in to work next day like nothing happened.
Benson is called into Chief’s office. “Benson, my office. Now.”
Benson insists she can take on another case. “I’m fine.”
Benson stares into the distance, not fine.
