Tom Cruise and Julia Roberts are famous for their infectious smiles. John Krasinski, the actor who plays corn-fed paper salesman Jim Halpert on NBC's "The Office," is famous for his elastic face, a mug so fluid it launched a thousand clips on YouTube.

One can only wonder just how many expressions Krasinski has in him.

There were 456 episodes of "Law & Order," 298 episodes (so far) of "Law & Order: SVU," 195 episodes of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," and a total of 35 episodes of the franchises' unsuccessful spinoffs. With a new case in every episode, it's become a resume staple for nearly every working actor in New York. And that includes celebrities. Over the franchise's 22 years on the air, a number of big-name stars have appeared for one-off spots on the show.
