Mike Tyson To Appear On “Law & Order: SVU,” Surprisingly Not Playing A Rapist
You guys, I love “Law & Order: SVU” and want to marry it. Maybe it’s (definitely) Stockholm Syndrome, because it’s on 43 times a day on basic cable, but I cannot get enough of Stabler, Benson, and the irony that Ice-T is now playing a cop. Like, I dream about one day getting to the magical “L&O: SVU” set, maybe playing a dead body, maybe bumping into Richard Belzer at craft services and trading pictures of our appliances. It’s just like my perverse fascination with Lifetime movies where women are always getting murdered or unwittingly married to serial killer cops played by Rob Lowe.
So that’s why I am all up on the “SVU” beat, and can inform you that Mike Tyson will be appearing in a future episode this season. And dun-dun-dun, he’ll be playing a convicted murder with the following cookie-cutter fabricated backstory…
He will play Reggie Rhodes, a murderer on death row whose violent actions may in part be the byproduct of a horrible childhood. His case attracts the attention of Benson and defense attorney Bayard Ellis during an SVU investigation.
