If Michael Gladis is at all anxious about the uncertain future of his ‘Mad Men‘ copywriter, Paul Kinsey, he  may have found the perfect outlet for his frustrations – the role of a serial killer.

Gladis will guest star on USA Network’s ‘Law & Order: Criminal Intent‘ shortly after Season 9 premieres, I have learned. In his episode, “Love Sick,” Gladis will play Randall Haig, a suspect in a series of slayings.

Gladis is the second ‘Mad’ man to visit the ‘Law & Order’-verse. Rich Sommer, aka Harry Crane, turned up on the mothership’s November 6 episode, playing the boss of a delinquent driver.

Unlike Gladis, Sommer’s ‘Mad Men’ future seems safe. In the Season 3 finale Harry was named Head of Media at the newly created Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce agency, while Paul was among the left-behinders who arrived at work only to discover that Don, Pete, Roger and Lane had packed up their offices.

‘Law & Order: CI’ returns with new episodes – and a largely overhauled cast – in spring 2010.
