A.J. Cook to Guest on LAW & Order: SVU

A.J. Cook

A. J. Cook has booked her first television role since being fired from Criminal Minds. TV Guide reports she will appear opposite Jeremy Irons in the “Mask” episode of LAW & ORDER: SVU.

As previously reported, Irons will play a rehab center sex therapist named Cap Jackson while Cook will be Cap’s daughter’s lesbian lover who is brutally attacked.

SVU executive producer Neal Baer told TV Guide, “A lot of people love A.J. So we asked, ‘How about coming and starring opposite Jeremy Irons?’”

While obviously not as good as getting JJ back, this sounds like it could be a great role for Cook, giving her a chance to stretch her acting muscles by playing a victim instead of someone helping victims.

What do you think of this casting?

Law & Order: SVU currently airs on NBC Wednesdays at 9pm eastern/8 central. It will move to Wednesdays at 10pm eastern/9pm central beginning January 5, and the Cook/Irons episode will air in early 2011.

    The time doesn’t really matter to me because I have DVR, But
    my parents make me go to bed at 9:30, so I have to watch it the next day after
    school. Which is annoying because my dad is usually is the living room and he don’t like the show.=/
    I usually watch it in my little brothers room so I don’t have to hear him. lol!
    I wish it was on at 8. But oh well.

    I can’t wait for the new episodes!!!!
    I’m soo excited.=)
