Jay Mohr to Play Charlie Sheen-Inspired Character on 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent'

Jay MohrSo far, no TV-movie genius has dared take on Charlie Sheen and his winning ways. But 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent' might come close when Jay Mohr plays a suspiciously Sheen-like character in an upcoming episode.

According to Deadline, Mohr will star in a pseudo-ripped-from-the-headlines episode later this season as Hollywood bad boy Nyle Brite, a "'rock star' fashion designer whose every creation turns to gold. His badboy reputation of cocaine benders and call-girl parties only skyrockets his career and mints him as the 'lovable rogue.'"

So the character's not an actor, but let's get real -- this is as close to a Charlie Sheen movie we're going to get until the Sheenster feels a little less litigious and people aren't afraid they're going to get sued for $100 million if they try to tackle the 'Two and a Half Men' debacle.

It sounds like 'Criminal Intent' is selecting "hotel room bender ending with porn star locked in closet" from the Sheen ouvre, except one of the party guests ends up dead.

When TV Squad selected our fantasy cast for the inevitable Charlie Sheen movie, Matt LeBlanc claimed the title role -- but Mohr works even better. Especially since he's not in the spotlight enough for his personal life to cloud our perception of the character.

Deadline reports that Noelle Beck of 'As the World Turns' will play Brite's long-suffering wife who has only stayed married to the party animal because she has "secrets of her own." Sounds juicy!

The tenth and final season of 'Criminal Intent' will premiere May 1 on USA Network.
