Not Done Yet - Alec Baldwin Returns To NBC In One Off Cameo On "Law & Order: SVU"

Then Alec Baldwin said he was retiring from the biz in that affected, woe-is-me letter recently, he obviously didn’t mean it literally. The actor returned this week in a minor role on Law & Order SVU, doing what he does best – being a jerk. Playing. Playing a jerk that is. Baldwin joined the SVU team (or rather, got in their way) as an over-eager, overly intrusive New York Ledger columnist who publishes inflammatory articles about a rape case being investigated by the SVU team.

Alec Baldwin seemed to declare a hiatus from the biz recently, but he's back with a vengeance.

The episode kicks off with Jimmy MacArthur (Baldwin) shadowing Sgt. Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) for a profile. In the process, he manages to alienate a rape victim by questioning her story (it turns out that her rape was not motivated by her religion as the victim claimed) and publish a story, declaring the whole thing a “hoax”. Classy move, that one.

Mariska Hargitay
Alec Baldwin joined the show's star Mariska Hargitay, mostly to butt heads with her character.

So Baldwin’s character ends up clashing with Benson and the team and comes out of it all in a less than favorable light. After the victim claims her attackers called her a "Muslim bitch" and told her to "go back to India," Baldwin's character cries foul, doubting men that would commit such a crime would know there were Muslims living in India. There might need to be a trigger warning on this particular episode.

It was about time we saw Baldwin in action again.
