Vice President Joe Biden Will Make a Cameo on ‘Law & Order: SVU’

Vice President Joe Biden wasted no time following the DNC to film a cameo on NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU.”

The show’s 18th season will premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, and the VP will appear in the second episode on Sept. 28.

According to the schedule listed on the White House website, Biden traveled to New York Friday morning to tape the episode, to talk about “the rape kit backlog and efforts to end violence against women.”

Ice-T, who plays NYPD Detective Odafin Tutuola on the show, tweeted a picture of Biden on set with Mariska Hargitay. He captioned the photo, “Joe is in the Building…. SVU.”

The role is not exactly out of character for Biden. He is a known advocate for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault who, along with Hargitay, spoke at the United State of Women Summit at the White House in June. He has also worked with Hargitay on her philanthropic endeavor “The Joyful Heart Foundation.” She started the organization to help sexual assault survivors heal and “reclaim a sense of joy in their lives.” In May, the foundation honored Biden at its Joyful Revolution Gala.

Ice-T followed up his photo of Biden by posting a memento. The caption on one picture of an official government coin reads, “VPs head of security just gave me this…. And said I’m good with them… Juice.” The other, a picture of the other side of the coin says, “Back view of VP Challenge Coin.. And YES Biden was cool as F.. Knew a lot about me.. Way more than I expected.”

Biden has made several cameos in the past on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.”
