The director has called cut. The film has stopped rolling. The extras have been sent home. Still, despite advertisements touting Sunday's Law & Order: Criminal Intent as the series finale, star Kathryn Erbe is still hopeful the show could live on.
"I know that I would be there in a heartbeat. I'm fairly positive that Vincent [D'Onofrio] feels the same way. Everyone was really hoping that, in the 11th hour, we'd get some word," she tells TVGuide.com. "Whether the fans are able to muscle us back or not, who knows. They have amazing power...
She's a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and an award-winning author, but "Godmother of Punk" Patti Smith says picking up acting wasn't so easy.
"I've never really acted, but I highly respect the craft," she says of her upcoming role on Law & Order: Criminal Intent. "I knew that it wasn't going to be simple, but it was a little more daunting...
After a year off the beat, don't expect Law & Order: Criminal Intent detectives Goren (Vincent D'Onofrio) and Eames (Kathryn Erbe) to get much time to adjust back to the daily grind.

In a crossover sweeps stunt, a hurricane storms its way through Stoolbend (Cleveland Show), Quahog (Family Guy) and Langley Falls (American Dad). On Cleveland, the storm wrecks the Brown/Tubbs family vacation plans. On Family Guy, the stress of the storm (never easy on dogs) drives Brian to overindulge in questionable substances. And on American Dad, the hurricane wreaks havoc on the Smiths, who foolishly decide to ride it out at home. As for Springfield...

The Law & Order franchise continues its headline-ripping ways: Law & Order: Criminal Intent will take on the troubled Broadway production Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark in an upcoming episode, TVLine reports.
The story will focus on a high-flying show called Icarus, which detectives begin investigating when a botched stunt leads to one of the actor's death. Suspects include a "high-strung and larger than life" director possibly modeled after Spider-Man's one-time director Julie Taymor. The episode also features a bisexual rock-star composer named Arno. (U2 front-man Bono is responsible for the music in the Spider-Man show.)
