Law & Order: SVU has landed a Walking Dead fave for an upcoming, ripped-from-the-headlines installment.
Lauren Cohan will guest-star on the NBC procedural this March in an episode based loosely on onetime Senate nominee Todd Akin’s controversial 2012 remarks that pregnancies rarely result from “legitimate rape.”
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Cohan will play Avery Jordan, a sports reporter who finds herself pregnant after her cameraman allegedly rapes her.
