Have you been on any of the Law and Orders? First, congratulations. Second, we are having an after party at Bell House as part of the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival this Friday September 14th that we need you to attend. Why? Because the after party features Eugene Mirman DJing and “over 25 actors who’ve had bit parts on Law and Order signing headshots.” So, please be a part of this. If you have headshots, bring them and sign them. If not, just come and hang out and reminisce about your experience with fans and loved ones. It doesn’t matter which Law & Order series you were on, if you had lines, or if you just held your own in a bar scene–we want you! Details:
