Ice-T Drops Winning Charlie Sheen Interview Remix (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Mar 3rd 2011 5:20PM
'Law & Order: SVU' star Ice-T is both a TV actor and poet of depravity. So, naturally, he's been following the Charlie Sheen train-wreck-a-palooza as closely as we have.

Today he tweeted a link to a YouTube remix of Sheen's stream of verbal craziness, set to the track to Eminem's 'Lose Yourself,' and it's filled with all sorts of -- wait for it -- winning.

We can't quite figure out if Ice-T produced the track himself, or just favorited it on his YouTube channel. It was originally uploaded by YouTube user KamikazeSchool. Regardless, we've been given magic. We've been given gold.

Check it out after the jump. #tigerblood

Ice-T Talks Dream 'Law & Order: SVU' Guest Stars, Holiday Traditions

by Chris Harnick, posted Nov 23rd 2010 4:12PM
Ice-T has a very simple request: Give his 'Law & Order: SVU' character, Det. Odafin "Fin" Tutuola, a home.

"I would like to find out where I live," the rapper/actor told AOL TV Squad. "I don't have a car." Ice-T has been on the series since 2000, but many aspects of his character's life remain a mystery. Viewers know Fin has a son and a troubled nephew, but that's pretty much it. The character has seen his fair share of love interests, busted dozens of rapists and dealt with crooked cops.

The actor sat down for an exclusive chat after a screening and panel discussion of 'Gray,' the Nov. 17 episode of 'SVU,' and opened up about his holiday traditions, guest stars he'd love to see and what's in store for Fin this season.

Mary Murphy In, Mia Michaels Out on 'So You Think You Can Dance,' 'Grey's Anatomy' Musical in the Works and More

by Chris Harnick, posted Nov 22nd 2010 11:40AM
Mary MurphyLadies and gentleman, Mary Murphy is back! That's right, the 'So You Think You Can Dance' veteran is returning to the judging table, replacing choreographer Mia Michaels.

"Last year when I was sitting on the [judges] panel, I knew it wasn't the right fit because I felt too glossy sitting on the panel," Michaels told E! Online. "People were so focused on what I wore and my hair. I wanted to get dirty and back to the work. I am an artist and I'm a visionary. I need to paint my world now and not be constantly linked to 'So You think You Can Dance.'"

Michaels' post-'SYTYCD' time with a Bravo reality series, writing a memoir and developing a Broadway show.

Look for Murphy to return next season.

'Law & Order: SVU' to Tackle Amazon.com 'Pedophile's Guide' Scandal

by Chris Harnick, posted Nov 18th 2010 3:30PM
Ice-TThe scandal over Amazon.com's sale of the book 'The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure' is the latest headline getting the 'Law & Order' treatment.

Amazon had the book on sale only for its Kindle e-book reader. The online retailer stood by its decision to sell the book before ultimately removing it amid threats of boycotts and widespread public outrage.

'Law & Order: SVU'

Ice said he is so passionate about the issue that he engaged in a Twitter war over it.

Law and Order: SVU: Zebras (season finale) - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 3rd 2009 8:00AM
Law and Order: SVUWow, I gotta say that this was a great season finale. I wasn't really familiar with Stuckey, but what happened still shocked me (though I guessed what was going on halfway through). It was rather Bones-ian, in a way.

This could turn out to be the last episode of Law and Order: SVU for Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay, since they are holding out for more money and NBC is thinking of replacing them. Of course, I don't think that's going to happen. Sure, all of the Law and Order shows have had many cast members over the years, but I'm betting that the duo will be back for another season.

Law & Order SVU: Screwed (season finale)

by Anna Johns, posted May 23rd 2007 12:31PM
svu; special victims unit(S08E22) Was it me, or was there just too much happening in this episode? "Screwed" was a culmination of not just this entire season, but of the entire series. And we're left, once again, to wonder whether the SVU squad is going to be disseminated.

The episode starred Ludacris, reprising his role as Det. Tutuola's stepson, Darius, from a March 2006 episode. But, despite the stellar acting job from Ludacris, it wasn't about him at all. In fact, his alleged crime wasn't even the center of the story (I stopped trying to remember the Ludacris episode when I realized that it didn't matter). Instead, Ludacris was the tool the writers used to pick apart all the mistakes the SVU detectives have made over the years and leave us hanging about their fate. The detectives were the ones on trial.

Law & Order SVU: Pretend

svu; special victims unit(S08E21) I hate it when the promos ruin an episode. It's hard to tell whether this episode of SVU was a good one because I knew from the promos that the girlfriend was a "black widow". It took a really, really long time for the story to unfold and I felt impatient because I wanted to see the evil side of this girl.

Law & Order SVU: Annihilated

by Anna Johns, posted May 9th 2007 1:14PM
christopher meloni; elliot stabler(S08E20) Usually I would say that if Elliot Stabler gets naked, it's gonna be a great episode. I wouldn't call it "great", but it was "good". It's surprising, really, because the topic was incredibly emotional. A man killed his wife and children because his lies were getting out of hand. It's a believable premise because we've seen it played out too many times in the news media (even though L&O didn't promote this one as "ripped from the headlines").

The episode was Elliot-centric, which usually means his family is somehow involved. It was. He saw a man who was bored with his life in Staten Island, so he started making up a new life for himself complete with a fiance who thought he was a CIA agent. Of course, it imploded and, as Dr. Wong said, family killers are so narcissistic that they can't live with the shame of being caught in their lies.

Law & Order SVU: Florida

mariska hargitay(S08E19) This was the best episode this season, hands down. Det. Olivia Benson's entire world came crashing down around her. Her entire motivation for being an SVU detective was brought into question. There was an awful lot revealed in this episode about Benson's past.

The writers and Mariska Hargitay did a spectacular job convincing me that she had completely lost her mind. Det. Benson appeared to be blindly helping her brother evade the law because she couldn't believe that he was a rapist, just like their father. After the last episode with Simon, I fully believed that he was guilty and I thought she did too.

Law & Order SVU: Responsible

svu; special victims unit(S08E18) Okay, I loved the dog owners in this episode. Their priorities were completely skewed. They found a dead teen-ager in their bed, but they were more disturbed by the fact that their dog hadn't been walked while they were on vacation.

This episode was about a subject they love over at SVU: drunk, rich kids. This time, though, the kids aren't the worst of the worst. The real bad guy is a young mother who wants teen-age boys to think she's hot and for her daughter to be popular with her classmates. She buys the kids alcohol and medicates her daughter's problems with alcohol.

Law & Order SVU: Sin

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 28th 2007 6:39PM
svu; special victims unit(S08E17) The writers of this episode were out to stick it to the right-wing Evangelicals, weren't they? They wrote an emotional script about the subject that gets so many people riled up: homosexuality!

Tim Daly seemed a little detached from his central role in this episode, playing Jeb Curtis, a reverend at New Souls Church in Long Island. I think his character was based on real-life Evangelical minister Ted Haggard, who admitted to doing meth and having affairs with men. Of course, Haggard never killed anyone to cover up his sins (at least not that we know of).

Law & Order SVU: Philadelphia

svu(S08E16) For the most part, I really enjoyed this episode. I liked how the two storylines intertwined- with Liv's search for her brother having an impact on her ability to do her job. What I didn't like was the third storyline of Olivia and Elliot being "too close" and the threat of splitting them up. That's a tired story. They already broke up last season when Mariska Hargitay's pregnancy became too obvious to hide, so Olivia ditched Elliot for after she realized they were too close.

I spent most of this episode being pissed off at Olivia for allowing Elliot to drag himself into her mess. She was way over the line in doing kinship DNA testing in the police database and in stalking her half-brother. Liv had to keep telling lies to cover for her screw ups and Elliot backed her up. Obviously they are "too close" because they're now supporting each other's extra curricular activities.

Law & Order SVU: Loophole

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 7th 2007 1:38PM
law and order svu(S01E13) How about that opening sequence? Before the credits, the entire cast gets to take a shot at a locomotive big guy on PCP. He throws Elliot through a window, knocks out a kid getting off the elevator and even takes a taser shot to the gut from Olivia before Fin takes him out with a chair to the back of the head. Anyway, the entire action sequence was a pretty elaborate way to write Christopher Meloni out of this week's script.

And, how unusual was this episode? The first 40 minutes had us thinking the detectives were investigating their usual child porn case, but then suddenly Olivia passes out?!? That's when the episode takes a turn from child porn to a much headier subject of chemical companies testing their products on humans. Wha? It took me a little while to catch up with the detectives as they spouted out their theories on why people in a low-income apartment building were being gassed. For a while there, I thought the theory was hair-brained and another of Det. Munch's theories. But it just kept going.

Two more years of SVU for Hargitay, Meloni

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 25th 2007 1:24PM
mariska hargitay; christopher meloniLead actors Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni have both agreed to stick around on Law & Order: SVU for two more seasons. It seems that money did the talking. Variety is reporting that both actors received about a $6.5 million raise for each year season. The publication says Hargitay is going to receive approximately $300,000-$340,000 per episode, pushing her up among the highest-paid female actors on television. Looks like baby August gets to go to private school!

Both actors had a hell of a lot of bargaining power in their contract negotiations. That show delivers consistently strong ratings for NBC and it absolutely would not be the same without Dets. Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler (Think: The X-Files without Mulder and Scully). Let's hope the network gives an incentive to keep Richard Belzer around, too.

SVU is currently in season 8, which means we're guaranteed seasons 9 and 10, which is exactly how long the sexual tension will last.
