Greta Gerwig is a movie star, a writer and, soon, a director. What she really wanted to do, however, was guest star on "Law & Order." Speaking to Amy Kaufman at the Los Angeles Times' Young Hollywood round table during AFI Fest, Gerwig revealed that one of her big acting regrets was not appearing on Dick Wolf's venerable procedurals.

"I'm like the only actor in New York who's never ever been on any 'Law & Order.' And I've auditioned for so many. The sad thing is I love 'Law & Order.' I'm really obsessed with it. And they always said to me, 'You seem like you're making fun of the material.'"

"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EDT on NBC. If anyone from the show wants to cast Gerwig, she's probably interested.
