    Cynthia Nixon also played a schizophrenic in SVU!

    Bob Saget was in SVU, Season 8, Episode 9: “Choreographed”; Rob Estes was in SVU Season 4, Episode 18: “Desperate” along with Sandra Bernhard; Will Arnett was in
    SVU Season 4, Episode 6: “Angels”; Rob McElhenney was in Season 8, Episode 1: “Thrill” (along with Big Pete!); and both Rooney and Kate Mara have appeared in SVU.

    Sadly, ittle bring me more joy than recognizing actors in Law & Order.

  • Steph

    Where’s Michael Pit? He played a creepy, dog killing, pouty puss

  • Karen

    Ryan Reynolds as a young boy?

  • hcamel24

    Sean Astin played a crazy religious nut and Martha Plimpton and Mary Steenburgen were in a great episode of SVU (I believe…)

    No Tommy Flanagan (Episode 13.14 “Home Invasions”) or Norman Reedus (Episode 7.22 “Influence”)?

    This cut is minuscule in comparison. So many great actors/actresses and some multiple appearances….a true video would be incredible!
