*In his first TV acting role, former boxer Mike Tyson will guest star as a death row prisoner on NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU.”
He will play Reggie Rhodes, a condemned murderer whose violent actions may in part be the byproduct of a horrible childhood. His case attracts the attention of Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and defense attorney Bayard Ellis (recurring guest star Andre Braugher) during an SVU investigation.
Also guest starring in the episode is Ed Asner as someone connected to the investigation.
While he has played himself on a couple of TV comedy series, including “Who’s The Boss,” “Entourage” and “Breaking In,” as well as on the big screen in “The Hangover” franchise, this marks the first major acting gig for the former heavyweight boxing champ.
