In a four-decade career, Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons has never done network television. Now he's making the leap with a guest-starring role on NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
"I've done no network TV (and) Law & Order: SVU is so popular amongst a wide variety of my friends," Irons tells TVGuide.com. "I thought it had great style. It reminded me of those paperback crime novels, which move very fast and ... I liked the way they told the stories."

Although Ashley H. received the first Bachelor one-on-one date and she and Brad quickly developed a bond, host Chris Harrison warns that she may get hit hard with "first-date syndrome."
While the season's first date went well, it was a tougher road to the rose for Jackie, who alarmed Brad when she revealed her lack of past relationships. Harrison weighs in on why Jackie raised a red flag and says he was surprised that Keltie, who he calls "cute on a stick," got axed so quickly.
The ladies of The Bachelor have moved into their mansion and it's time to start the dates with Brad.
"Use your time wisely," Chris Harrison warns the women. Ashley H. is the lucky winner who receives the very first one-on-one. As she and Brad head off, they venture onto a dark dirt road where it appears they could be starring in a teaser for Law & Order: SVU. But, of course, it's just The Bachelor, and after Brad instructs Ashley to flip a switch, lights come on to reveal they're in an insanely awesome carnival. Thank you, ABC, now I expect my own personal carnival on my next date.
