CAROL KANE, NICK STAHL TO GUEST STAR ON NBC'S 'LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT' Kane to Reprise Role as Detective Munch's Ex-Wife in Season Finale Episode to Air Tuesday, June 2
NEW YORK – May 26, 2009 – Two-time Emmy Award-winning actress Carol Kane will guest-star in the season finale of NBC'S "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," executive producer Neal Baer announced today. Kane reprises her role as Gwen Munch, the ex-wife of Detective John Munch (Richard Belzer), who last appeared with him in an episode of NBC's "Homicide: Life on the Street" in 1997. "Zebras," SVU's season finale, will be telecast on NBC Tuesday, June 2 (10-11 p.m. ET/PT).
In "Zebras," a young woman is killed in Central Park, and when a clerical error ruins the case, the police rush to find more evidence before the killer takes revenge on the squad.
"We're thrilled to have Gwen Munch return to her true love, Detective John Munch, to help lead him to a deranged killer (Nick Stahl) who is after a member of the SVU family," said Baer.
In addition, Nick Stahl guest-stars as Peter Harrison, a once promising young artist who is now lost in the paranoia of mental illness. Fearing SVU Detectives are persecuting him, he turns on them after he may have murdered an innocent young mother.
Here is the information for all three episodes.
A charming con man targets a lonely, single mother to try to hit an armored truck carrying millions of dollars; Nichols (Jeff Goldblum) and Wheeler (Julianne Nicholson) investigate when one of the con man's partners dies weeks later. (Preview clip and promo videos below.)
