As if new-school Law And Order couldn’t get any wacker–at least our future president will be leaving next season–they’re now letting emos on as guest stars, with a non-Wentz member of Fall Out Boy making his dramatic debut in the next season.
“The episode is called ‘Darkness,’ and it involves a kidnapping and murder that takes place during a power outage,” NBC spokeswoman Amber James told MTV News. “The wife and daughter of an energy exec are kidnapped, and the housekeeper is murdered, and it turns out Patrick [Stump]‘s character works for the executive’s company. He has two key scenes in the interrogation room and another scene where he’s in the court room, being prosecuted. … He’s completely out of character. It has nothing to do with his band or him being a musician.”
What’s the point of having a musician guest on Law And Order if you’re not going to baldly rip a melodramatic music industry story from the headlines? (Like, I dunno, the bust of a certain torrent site? Mark my words…) It’s an insult to the memory of C Square. I miss Michael Moriarty.
