Law & Order Rips David Letterman's Sexcapades From the Headlines

Law and Order Cast, David Letterman Virginia Sherwood/NBC; John Paul Filo/CBS

What took so long?

After taking a shot at the Gosselins, the Law & Order brain trust has now set its sights on a certain late-night dog, plotting a ripped-from-the-headlines scenario based on David Letterman's personal life.

The casting call has just gone out for the episode, which per The Wrap will revolve around a "well-known celebrity talk-show host, married with children," who has engaged in "a series of short-lived affairs with some of the employees on the show and up until now has managed to keep them off the radar."

Until, that is, the host is approached by an email- and photo-equipped blackmailer who demands $3 million in hush money.

Sounds familiar enough. But it wouldn't be Law & Order without a twist, and this one's a doozy...

Letterman is gonna be a Letterwoman.

But not just any woman—a View-skewering one.

Per the casting breakdown, the not-so-thinly veiled host in question is named Vanessa Carville, a personality in her late 30s to early 40s who, "along with a panel of other women, hosts a daily talk show."

Wow, a twofer! Who said the recession hasn't taught Hollywood to be more economical? (Probably the same person who said Dave couldn't resent NBC any more than he already did.)

There's no airdate yet for the episode, but our TiVos are waiting.


Well, all was quiet on the Letterman front. Now's as good a time as any to catch up on all things Dave.
