First Look At Alec Baldwin's 'Law & Order: SVU' Guest Appearance

Alec Baldwin's guest appearance on "Law & Order: SVU" is only days away, but the clip above shows what he's got planned for Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and the squad.

Baldwin plays Jimmy MacArthur, a renowned New York Ledger columnist, who gets full access to Benson and her detectives for a story on the Special Victims Unit. In the first look above, watch Baldwin charm everyone at police department ... except Benson. This episode, titled "Criminal Stories," marks the first time Hargitay will get behind the camera and direct. She's in luck, as Katie Couric will also make a cameo interviewing Baldwin's character.

This episode of "Law & Order: SVU" will air Wednesday, March 19 at 9 p.m. EDT on NBC.
