Save the Date!!! CMT reports that Miranda Lambert will make her acting debut on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit on February 8th!!! 

Law & Order: SVU scoop: Harry Connick Jr. to play Benson’s new love interest.  Lambert, who is married to Blake Shelton, a coach on NBC’s hit singing competition The Voice, will play an actress who claims to have been sexually assaulted by a reality show producer. Michael McKean (Laverne &Shirley, This Is Spinal Tap, Smallville) will play the alleged sleazebag in question. Given that Lambert’s album and song titles include Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Kerosene and “Gunpowder & Lead,” he’d better watch his back!

When Lambert first learned of her upcoming role, she tweeted her excitement to her fans, “Yall I’m so freaking excited to be on my favorite show ever !!!”

Law & Order: SVU airs on Wednesdays on NBC.
