Kane to Reprise Role as Detective Munch's Ex-Wife in Season Finale Episode to Air Tuesday, June 2

NEW YORK - May 26, 2009 - Two-time Emmy Award-winning actress Carol Kane will guest-star in the season finale of NBC'S "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," executive producer Neal Baer announced today. Kane reprises her role as Gwen Munch, the ex-wife of Detective John Munch (Richard Belzer), who last appeared with him in an episode of NBC's "Homicide: Life on the Street" in 1997. "Zebras," SVU's season finale, will be telecast on NBC Tuesday, June 2 (10-11 p.m. ET/PT).

In "Zebras," a young woman is killed in Central Park, and when a clerical error ruins the case, the police rush to find more evidence before the killer takes revenge on the squad.

"We're thrilled to have Gwen Munch return to her true love, Detective John Munch, to help lead him to a deranged killer (Nick Stahl) who is after a member of the SVU family," said Baer.

In addition, Nick Stahl guest-stars as Peter Harrison, a once promising young artist who is now lost in the paranoia of mental illness. Fearing SVU Detectives are persecuting him, he turns on them after he may have murdered an innocent young mother.

Kane won two Emmy awards for her role as Simka Dahblitz-Gravas in the ABC series "Taxi." Other television credits include "Two and a Half Men," "Seinfeld," "Pearl," "Brooklyn Bridge" and "Chicago Hope," for which she received another Emmy nomination. Film roles include "Carnal Knowledge," "The Last Detail," "Annie Hall," "Hester Street" (for which she received an Academy Award nomination), "Dog Day Afternoon," "The World's Greatest Lover," "When A Stranger Calls," "The Princess Bride," "Scrooged," "The Lemon Sisters," "The Pallbearer," "Office Killer," "Trees Lounge," "Addams Family Values," "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen," "The Pacifier" and "Cosmopolitan." Kane has also appeared in several stage productions, including the Broadway, Los Angeles, San Francisco and National Tours of "Wicked."

Stahl last starred on television as Ben Hawkins in the critically acclaimed HBO drama "Carnivale." Recent film credits include "Sleepwalking," "Quid Pro Quo" and "Sin City." He also starred as John Connor in "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger, and opposite Mel Gibson in "The Man Without a Face."

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is a Wolf Films production in association with Universal Media Studios. Dick Wolf is creator and executive producer; Neal Baer (NBC's "ER," "China Beach"), Ted Kotcheff ("Fun with Dick and Jane," "Weekend at Bernie's") and Peter Jankowski are executive producers.
