Jay Mohr To Channel Charlie Sheen On 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent'

Deadline.com, 3.29.11
By NELLIE ANDREEVA

EXCLUSIVE: The Law & Order franchise is known for looking at the biggest news headlines for storyline inspiration. This seems to be the case with an episode of the upcoming 10th and final season of Law & Order: Criminal Intent on USA Network, in which Jay Mohr will guest star as a Charlie Sheen-type famous and incredibly successful badboy. Mohr's character, Nyle Brite, is from a different area of the arts: he is a a "rockstar" fashion designer whose every creation turns to gold. His badboy reputation of cocaine benders and call-girl parties only skyrockets his career and mints him as the "lovable rogue." (Sheen's most recent hospitalization that led to the production shutdown on Two and a Half Men and Sheen's subsequent firing from the show followed the now-infamous 36-hour bender with porn stars at his house, which reportedly included large amounts of cocaine.) Since L&O:CI is a crime drama, the plot of the episode includes a murder as a guest at one of Brite's parties turns up dead. Also appearing in the episode, titled Rispetto, is Noelle Beck (As the World Turns) as Debra Brite, Nyle's long-suffering but brilliant wife who has managed to withstand 20years of his antics because she has secrets of her own.

Meanwhile, an upcoming episode of another Law & Order series, L&O: LA, features a storyline inspired by the recent murder of top Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen. L&O: CI's final season is set to premiere on May 1.
