Robin Williams to appear on LAW & ORDER: SVU

Robin Williams

My favorite stand-up comedian and one of my favorite actors, Robin Williams is going to appear in an episode of LAW & ORDER: SVU as an engineer whose life has gone terribly wrong with dramatic repercussions.

The episode entitled “Authority” is set to air on April 29 at 10pm on NBC.

When a law-abiding engineer’s life takes a tragic turn, he becomes an ardent believer in the necessity of challenging authority. His purpose in life turns to making people aware that there are risks posed by leading unquestioning lives.

Executive Producer Neal Baer said, “We are thrilled that one of the most talented and versatile actors around will be starring in this powerful and complex special 200th episode. We can’t imagine anyone else doing this role.”

I don’t usually watch Law & Order: SVU, but I might need to make an exception for Robin Williams.
