Law & Order: CI Exclusive: Cynthia Nixon Set For Episode Inspired by Spider-Man Musical

My Spidey sense tells me there’s another Guest Star Emmy in Cynthia Nixon’s future.

Sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that Law & Order: Criminal Intent has tapped the Sex and the City vet to headline its upcoming episode loosely inspired by the troubled Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.

Nixon will play Julie Taymor Amanda Reese, the high-strung and larger-than-life director behind a problem-plagued Broadway version of Icarus. After a sabotaged stunt results in the death of an actor on stage, Amanda spirals out of control.

In 2007, Nixon picked up an Emmy for guesting as a woman with multiple personalities on Law & Order: SVU.

Criminal Intent‘s 10th and possibly final season kicks off May 1 (8/7c) on USA Network.

  • Cynthia Nixon is brilliant, and will always be welcome on my TV!

    Do we know if she’s sticking around in “The Big C”??
