You may think Mischa Barton exhausted every young female stereotype during her time as Marissa Cooper on The O.C. To be able to play a lovelorn, teenage, alcoholic sometimes-lesbian who dies in a fiery car wreck takes a special talent. We never did see her work the streets, though.
Luckily, Law & Order: SVU is going to allow Mischa to round out her fragile, female-in-trouble resumé when she plays Gladys The Pregnant Hooker on an episode set to air on March 3. No doubt Gladys will have a heart of gold and is just paying her way through law school. Mischa’s wardrobe for the role is pretty hilarious in that clichéd prostitute way – she actually looks more like a thrift store hipster to us, but you be the judge. [Photos: Getty Images]
