Robin Williams is a Sexual Deviant

When you think Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, a few images come to mind: the pale body of a ravaged young woman, kids on witness stands pointing to various parts of dolls, and the eccentric but whimsical son of a deceased toy mogul. What's that? That last one? Why, it's simply Mr. Robin Williams' newest genre-testing experiment in "taking whatever role they give me." Ever since he blue-balled me by NOT raping that couple at the end of One Hour Photo, I for one have been eagerly awaiting this moment. And I’m already making predictions about the landmark 200th episode. One writer has said that he "couldn’t imagine anyone else in the role." From that, I think it's safe to assume that Williams will be playing a psychotically split child molester who can speak only in impressions of outdated celebrities and is sustained by a bottomless stash of cocaine. And to those who see this as a bad fit, I point to SVU’s long tradition of casting faded comedians as sexual deviants. Jerry Lewis, Bob Saget, Chevy Chase and Martin Short have all taken turns playing “bad boys” on the old L&O. Dunn dunn indeed. In the end, what I’m most excited about is the inevitable 300th episode, wherein Jim Carey will portray an animated elephant with an unfortunately roaming trunk.
