BURBANK, California - Liza Minelli, fresh off her cameo appearance in the film "The OH in Ohio" and her recurring role in "Arrested Development," will guest-star in an upcoming episode of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent."I guess Liza needs a paycheck. Until just recently, she hadn't worked in television or movies for almost ten years. But Law & Order? When an Oscar winner starts making guest appearances on crime dramas, their career has slipped a little.
Minelli, 59, will play a former beauty queen whose daughter, an aspiring beauty queen, was found murdered on Halloween night, said Pam Golum, a spokeswoman for Wolf Films, which produces the NBC show.
The episode, called "Masquerade," is filming now and will air in November, Golum said Thursday.
As for Law & Order CI, are they nuts? Liza was no beauty queen 30 years ago. Couldn't they have found at least a halfway decent looking actress. Faye Dunaway isn't my type, she was way too skinny when younger, but she'd at least be credible.
They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but something tells me a casting director needs a eye exam real bad.
