Hilary Duff plans to get busy in the TV world. The starlet will guest star in a future episode of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit", E! News reported as informed by an NBC representative. Her role and the episode are not disclosed though.
This would not be the only Duff's role that has something to do with the law. She has been signed by NBC as well, to be the main character of a brand new pilot called "Barely Legal". In the drama comedy, the 18-year-old will play a young lawyer who passed the notoriously difficult California bar exam and becomes the youngest attorney ever made in the state. No date for this series has been revealed too.
Apart from the guest stint at "SVU", Duff has also filmed a one-time role for "Ghost Whisperer". She plays Morgan Jefferies, "a beautiful woman of mystery" who may be involved in the death of a man who fell victim, literally, to a freak accident. The episode called "Thrilled to Death", airs April 10.
On another "Law & Order: SVU" news, E! wrote that the star Mariska Hargitay will be back on duty this Monday and have her episode called "Selfish" aired on April 28. She recently took a break to recuperate from collapsed lung.
