After announcing his decision to "say goodbye to public life," The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Alec Baldwin will be interviewed by journalist Katie Couric -- but it's not what you may think. The 30 Rock star will return to NBC for a guest starring role on Law & Order: SVU.
Airing on March 19, Couric plays a talk-show host who is interviewing Baldwin's character Jimmy MacArthur, "a controversial New York newspaper columnist who questions the SVU squad's motives during the investigation of a potential hate crime/rape case." In addition to the star power, the Criminal Stories episode will also be SVU star Mariska Hargitay's directorial debut.
