Talk about surprise casting, this juicy morsel is kind of like a sudden jab to the face. Mike Tyson is coming to an episode of Law & Order: Svu. The guest role is the former boxer’s acting debut. Watch out world.
Get this. Mike Tyson’s upcoming guest role on Svu isn’t your typical light work either. Deadline calls the part “dark” and “dramatic”. Tyson will bring to life a character by the name of Reggie Rhodes. Rhodes is a murderer sentenced to death. What put the man on that terrible path? Indications are, he’s the result of an atrocious childhood. Stories like his are probably a dime a dozen in the New York penal system, but either way, his particular case will grab the attention of Detective Benson and defense attorney Bayard Ellis, whose recurring role comes from Last Resort actor Andre Braugher.
