Wolf signs Ice-T to ‘Law & Order’

Will play street-savvy cop paired with Belzer's Munch

HOLLYWOOD — Dick Wolf is ordering up a refill of Ice-T — this time, for “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”

Rapper-thesp will join the cast of Wolf’s NBC legal drama this fall, portraying Det. Odafin Tutuola, a street-smart veteran cop who partners with Richard Belzer’s Det. John Munch.

Ice-T has become a regular playa in Wolf’s drama repertory. He first worked with the producer on the Fox skein “New York Undercover,” making several guest appearances. He then starred in Wolf’s NBC drama “Players,” and later appeared in the Peacock pic “Exiled: A Law & Order Movie.”

“Working with Ice is always a pleasure,” Wolf said. “He is a consummate professional, a great actor, a terrific person, and he has a great sense of humor. I am really looking forward to the chemistry (and most likely fireworks) between his character and Belzer’s Detective Munch.”

Ice-T said he was glad to be “on board such a cool show.”
