The show has featured so many A-listers, it has a reputation for being a stepping stone for top talent. No wonder it's one of the most-watched television series of our time. 


Just like the hit show continues to improve (it's going into its 17th season with "stripped from the headlines" themes!), so do these celebs. Take a look at 20 celebrities who have guest-starred on Law & Order. Talk about a total throwback!
