Mischa Barton to play a prostitute on 'Law & Order: SVU'

mischa_barton_thebeautifullife_320.jpgAfter a troubling hospitalization last summer and the crash and burn of her CW series "The Beautiful Life" in the fall, many of us wondered where Mischa Barton may be headed.

The answer? She's going to be a hooker!

On TV, that is.

NBC confirms to Zap2it that Barton has been cast as a prostitute named Gladys on the March 3 episode of "Law & Order: SVU."

Word is, Gladys has a secret which will create some sort of trouble for Benson ( Mariska Hargitay).

Any thoughts on this career move for Mischa?

Do you approve of the casting?
