With all the injuries on the set of the Spider-Man musical, Spider-Man: Off With The Darkness And The Injuries To The Actors With The Ouch And The Flavin, we’re a little surprised one of the eighty-four Law & Order spin-offs hasn’t filmed a “ripped from the headlines” episode about it already. Well, not only is “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” bringing back Vincent D’Onofrio to finish eating the scenery, but they’re also doing a take on the Spider-Man musical set safety issues. TVLine has the story, which, for some reason, Michael Ausiello and Andy Patrick wrote about as if it were some convoluted, cutesy blind item or a f-cking riddle. Let me boot up my breathless-entertainment-columnist-to-English translator and let you guys know what they’re trying to convey.
“Law & Order: CI” will have an episode where an actor dies under suspicious circumstances during a failed stunt on the set of a musical called Icarus. The play is directed by a “high-strung and larger-than-life” woman who falls off the wagon, and it’s composed by a bisexual rock-star named “Arno” who is secretly cheating on his wife with a male colleague. So they’re like Julie Taymor and Bono, except with funner vices, probably. And this isn’t the only pop culture news “Law & Order: CI” is sending up this season. They’ll also be having Jay Mohr play a Charlie Sheen-like character embroiled in a murder investigation as well as filming an episode based on the murder of Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen. Ooo, what if Jay Mohr did it? I mean, in reality. It could happen.
