Jay Mohr to Portray Charlie Sheen-ish Character in Law & Order: Criminal Intent

The Law & Order franchise has been famous for its ripped-from-the-headlines approach to storylines. It looks as if the final season of USA's Criminal Intent is no different, as not only are they doing a Ronni Chasen inspired episode, but they're portraying America's favorite warlock, Charlie Sheen. According to Deadline, Criminal Intent has cast Jay Mohr to play a Charlie Sheen-like bad boy named Nyle Brite, known for his love of cocaine and hookers.
