Law & Order, Special Parties Unit: Mariska Hargitay Hosts “Black Widow” for Scarlett Johansson in the Hamptons Tonight


Ahem. I guess our invite got lost in the email.

Call this “Law & Order: Special Parties Unit.” Mariska Hargitay and Peter Hermann are hosting a private screening tonight for Disney’s “Black Widow.”

Why? Well, star Scarlett Johansson and her husband, Colin Jost, live in Montauk, not far away from Olivia Benson’s getaway.

Who’s expected? The usual Hamptons movie crowd, maybe with Alec Baldwin thrown in. Maybe Chris Meloni, aka Elliot Stabler, will turn up. They can arrest anyone who gets out of hand.

Whoever comes will have to dodge the rain, because the forecast calls for a drenching right around the time Natasha Romanoff is set to meet up with her Russian spy parents.

Disney has already had fan events in New York, Los Angeles, and London but sans ScarJo, who, after all, has a six year old and has to limit her events.

“Black Widow” currently has an 84 on Rotten Tomatoes.
