Law & Order: Criminal Intent will ring in May sweeps with tales ripped from the real-life headlines of February sweeps. On May 1, Tate Donovan will guest-star as a married astronaut whose affair with a colleague goes south when someone turns up dead. Then on May 8, Kristy Swanson plays a stripper turned model and - sorry, this particular one is just so shameless - widow of an elderly billionaire, whose son dies under mysterious circumstances, and then later so does she. David Cross ( Arrested Development) plays the partner and lawyer of Swanson's ill-fated bombshell.
