While MTV is taking its sweet time to decide whether or not to bring the controversial Skins US back for a second season, Daniel Flaherty isn’t waiting around for work. Wetpaint has learned exclusively that Flaherty, who plays Stanley on the show, is co-starring on next week’s season premiere of Law & Order: Criminal Intent on USA. According to the character description we got from Danny’s rep, he’ll be playing, “TAYLOR: Male, 17, slight build. The son of unstable fashion designer Nick Brite. When his father's public meltdown threatens his financial stability, he falls under suspicion of having committed violent acts.”

Sweet! It’s already well known that Nick Brite is being played by Jay Mohr and the story is based on Charlie Sheen’s world famous super-breakdown. Mohr recently said that the episode was originally to air as the fourth show of the season, but that Law & Order producers were so psyched about the finished product that they gave it the coveted premiere slot. We’re just glad that we get to see at least one of our fave Skins stars on TV again while MTV gets its act together!

Law & Order: Criminal Intent premieres on Sunday, May 1, at 9/8c on USA.
