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. I'm interested to see how much artistic license the writers take with this episode. If they go too close to what's actually happened with Sheen, it could be a little tired, but if they use Sheen's antics only as a base and add in even more insanity, it could be a pretty interesting episode. Jay Mohr has played characters in the same ballpark as Brite, most notably in Fox's short-lived Action , so I think he could pull off the role as an unhinged star quite well.

Law & Order, the crime franchise's mother ship, was canceled by NBC after 20 seasons last May. USA Network has announced that the final eight episodes of Law & Order: Criminal Intent will air in early 2011. Ratings for freshman series Law & Order: Los Angeles are middling. And finally, the reliable Special Victims Unit is losing longtime show runner Neal Baer in June, at the same time contracts are up for the series' invaluable leads, Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni, whose last contract negotiations in the summer of 2009 went down to the wire. Come September, is it possible that for the first time in 21 years there could be no Law & Order show on television? Baer predicts a ratings bounce for SVU when the show moves from Wednesdays at 9pm back to 10pm come January 5; the sex-crimes show has consistently drawn better numbers in the later slot over the years. The drama currently averages 9.7 million viewers, down from its high of 15.2 million in the 2001-2002 season. "We're still doing compelling and memorable stories," Baer says, "and drawing great guest stars," including Drea de Matteo and Oscar winner Jeremy Irons, who will appear in 2011. "SVU can go on for a long time." According to a source close to the L&O franchise, no one on set or from the studio or network believes the show will end with Season 12. To Read More Click Here.

Jeff Goldblum, the star of USA's 'Law and Order: Criminal Intent,' is leaving the series after two years. According to Variety, this is not a negotiating tactic; Goldblum has made up his mind. Variety reported that Goldblum's' decision to leave stemmed from "uncertainty" surrounding the show's future. 'Law and Order: CI' underwent a major cast change earlier this season when Vincent D'Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe and Eric Bogosian left the series and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Saffron Burrows joined the cast. Goldblum used to alternate episodes with D'Onofrio's character, stepping in for Chris Noth in season 8 of the show. After D'Onofrio's exit early in season 9, Goldblum shouldered the full episode load. The series aired its season 9 finale on July 6, it was seen by 3.05 million viewers to date. USA Network has not made any announcement on its future. Source Here
