The Beautiful Life may be resurrected online.
But Mischa Barton isn't waiting around to find out. The rail-thin actress has signed on for a guest-starring role on Law & Order: SVU. She'll play a prostitute named Gladys.
Producer Neal Baer says he's been a fan of Barton's since she appeared in The Sixth Sense.
“She’s gone on to do amazing work both on TV and on the stage,” Baer said to TV Guide Magazine.
On the March 3 episode, it will be revealed that Barton's character is hiding a secret, one that proves to make life complicated for Mariska Hargitay’s Benson.
