If Al Gore can be an anchor, why can't Sue Simmons be an actress? No reason at all, and in fact she'll reprise Sue Simmons (if that's possible) on this season's "Law & Order: SVU," NBC has confirmed, while adding that she'll return to the "L&O" set Monday for an additional shoot. .
Yes, she'll play a newscaster named Sue Simmons; no further details though the New York Post - which first reported this - said she's covering a scandal that concerns the NYPD and DA (the continuation of last season's cliffhanger...)
Simmons has played Simmons (or a news reporter/anchor) before, boasting a handful of acting credits in the mid-to-late-90s, including the '99 film "Light it Up" with Forest Whitaker and Venessa Williams, and "The First Wive's Club" from '96.
