Star Jones, er… Star Jones Reynolds, whose hiring at Court TV ultimately led to yesterday’s announcement that sour-faced crazy lady Nancy Grace would leave the network to concentrate on annoying viewers of CNN Headline News, will share the screen with her rival in the season finale of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
The episode with the lyrical title of Screwed (a bittersweet nod to the delusional Nancy?) also features the rapper Ludacris (under the moniker of “rapper/actor Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges”) and Steven Weber (trolling for work now that Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip will be burned off after May Sweeps– and not by any fault of his own since he was one of the best on the series) among others, and marks the debut of SVU Detective Chester Lake, played by Adam Beach, who months ago was touted as a potential OscarÂ® contender for his role as Ira Hayes in Clint Eastwood’s Flags of Our Fathers, but now settles for a fulltime TV gig.
Mr. Beach, of course, is perhaps best known for his role in one of Tabloid BabyÂ®’s Top 50 movies of all timeÂ®.That’s right!
He played Kicking Wing in Joe Dirt, a film that was surely David Spade’s finest 91 minutes and which boasted this OscarÂ®-worthy exchange:
Joe Dirt: So your gonna’ tell me that you don’t have no black cats, no roman candles, or screaming mimis?
Kicking Wing: No.
Joe Dirt: Oh come on, man. You got no lady fingers, fuzz buttles, snicker bombs, church burners, finger blasters, gut busters, zippity do das, or crap flappers?
Kicking Wing: No, I don’t.
Joe Dirt: You’re gonna stand there, owning a fireworks stand, and tell me you don’t have no whistling bungholes, no spleen spliters, whisker biscuits, honkey lighters, hoosker doos, hoosker donts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick, or one single whistling kitty chaser?
Kicking Wing: No… because snakes and sparklers are the only ones I like.
Joe Dirt: Well that might be your problem. It’s not what you like, it’s the consumer.
The Law & Order: SVU finale runs on NBC on Tuesday, May 22nd at 10 pm Eastern and Pacific Times. Star and Nancy will play themselves.
