Hilary Duff Brushes Up on Her Acting Skills

Looks like Hilary Duff is about to clean up her act. Or at least the grisly evidence of a heinous murder.

The former Lizzie McGuire actress was in New York City on Tuesday, filming her guest appearance on long-running crime drama Law & Order: SVU. Also on hand for the taping were Law & Order: SVU stars Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay—the latter of whom has just returned to work following her ongoing lung-related illnesses.

Crime-related roles seem to be Duff’s plan for moving on from her tweener roots. The 21-year-old is slated to star in an upcoming movie about 1930s bank robbers Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, which is due to begin filming in April.

Talk about gunning for a comeback.
