Joan Cusack

Actress Joan Cusack has signed on to guest star in an episode of NBC’s LAW & ORDER: SVU.

Cusack will play the role of a mother who becomes the focus of an SVU investigation after her children go missing. Cusack’s character has one daughter who disappeared several years earlier, and she soon becomes a suspect after her second daughter goes missing. Cusack’s guest appearance will air sometime in the fall. She won’t be the only newcomer to the show in the fall as Law & Order: SVU producers plan on introducing a love interest for Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay). As previously reported, Henry Ian Cusick will appear as Erik Weber, an interior design specialist who becomes Benson’s love interest.

You might recognize Cusack from her roles in In & Out, Grosse Pointe Blank and Working Girl.
