Kristy Swanson To Play Anna Nicole!

The first fictional account of Anna Nicole Smith is coming in May to Law And Order: Criminal Intent on NBC. Kristy Swanson, the original Buffy Vampire Slayer in the movie version will play an Anna like charcter. Sources say Jon Lovitz could play Howard K. Stern type. From what the source for Fox News says Larry Birkhead will not be in the story. (Hello Kato Kaelin!) Kristy is a great choice to play Anna. Not only does she look somewhat like the late model she also has faced scandal recently. Kristy just gave birth three weeks ago to a baby with Skating With Celebrities partner, Lloyd Eisler. The scandal is that Eisler is still married to the mother of his two very young children.
The big question now is which team of detectives will have this story. The show alternates between to detective teams each week. Vincent D'Onofrio is on one team and Chris Noth is on the other. The exective producer Dick Wolf is also tackling another "ripped from the headlines" story based on former astronaut, Lisa Nowak who attempted to kidnap a romantic rival.

Also in Law and Order news... CI will be back for another season next fall and SVU starring Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni is a go for two more seasons. (That is good to hear considering these are two of my favorite shows!)
