Actress Sharon Stone is to guest star in four episodes of US TV crime series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

The 51-year-old will appear as a former police officer turned prosecutor in the show, which follows a squad of detectives who investigate sex crimes.

The show's creator Dick Wolf said it was "a thrill and a delight to have a star of Sharon's wattage and importance" appearing on the programme.

Network NBC has no transmission dates for the episodes.

The show, which began in 1999, is one of a number of spin-off projects from the main Law & Order programme, which started in 1990.

In 2004, Stone - whose other film credits include Casino - won an Emmy Award for her guest appearance in ABC legal drama The Practice.
