37 Famous ‘Law & Order’ Guest Stars From the Last 25 Years (PHOTOS)

The long-running Law & Order franchise boasts an impressive roster of celebrity guest stars. A list of their vets is like a Who’s Who of Hollywood and may even be longer than (dare we say it?) our list of stars who have had plastic surgery.


The franchise is coming up on its 25th anniversary this September, and tonight (July 29), WE tv is airing a marathon of episodes to help commemorate L&O's special year.

While the only direct spin-off of the franchise still gracing our airwaves is the beloved Law & Order: SVU — unsinkable even after three years without Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) — the franchise boasts a total of 1,000 episodes over nearly 50 seasons. And that's not even counting other series in the L&O universe like Chicago PD!


Since the procedural usually focuses on a monster-of-the-week format, that leaves a ton of guest spots to fill — from entry-level roles to sweeps-week cameos. The result is such a powerhouse list that even The Brady Bunch's Florence Henderson wants in on!


Click through above to find out which big names have graced the L&O set, both before and after fame. DUN DUN.
