Country music spitfire Miranda Lambert will make her acting debut on an upcoming episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

Law & Order: SVU scoop: Harry Connick Jr. to play Benson's new love interest

Lambert, who is married to Blake Shelton, a coach on NBC's hit singing competition The Voice, will play an actress who claims to have been sexually assaulted by a reality show producer. Michael McKean (Laverne &Shirley, This Is Spinal Tap, Smallville) will play the alleged sleazebag in question. Given that Lambert's album and song titles include Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Kerosene and "Gunpowder & Lead," he'd better watch his back!

News of Lambert's casting comes a day after the NBC procedural announced that singer-actor Harry Connick Jr. will play a love interest for Mariska Hargitay's Detective Benson in a four-episode arc. Connick will also appear in Lambert's episode.

Law & Order: SVU airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on NBC. Lambert's episode has not yet been scheduled.
