It was previously reported that Hilary Duff would be guest starring on an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU (as well as the Ghost Whisperer) but at the time of that reporting, no information about what Hilary’s role would be or when the ep would air on TV was available. Today, we finally have that information as well as our first look at Hilary on the set of L&O: SVU:
Hilary’s ep of SVU will air on April 28 and she will play a “young and irresponsible mother” named Ashlee Walker who comes under the watchful investigation of the SVU heroes when Ashlee’s young daughter Sierra goes missing (cue the dramatic music). There has yet to be any info regarding Duff’s appearance on Ghost Whisperer but her role has been described as “mysterious” (I’m guessing, a ghost?). Additionally, Hilary Duff has signed on to appear in a new TV series called Barely Legal where she will play a young woman who passes the California Bar exam at the age of 18 to become the youngest practicing lawyer in the State … I presume it’s a comedy. It’s nice to see that Hilary will be going back to her acting roots in the coming weeks and months. As you prolly know, Hilary has been keeping herself bizzy with her music career but how many Greatest Hits albums can one person release before they move on to something more interesting? I, for one, am really looking forward to Hilary’s return to the small screen. It’s been ages since I’ve had a Lizzie Maguire fix so … bring it on, Hil D!
