Why Ice-T And The Law And Order: SVU Cast Feel Like They’ve ‘Hit The Jackpot’ After All These Years


Law & Order: Special Victims Unit has officially hit the 25-season mark! The first spinoff in the L&O franchise premiered back in 1999 and has remained a steady staple on TV since then. Since its parent show went on a 10-year hiatus, the drama even surpassed its predecessor in episode count and continues to reign. Even that many seasons in, Ice-T and the cast are feeling as grateful as ever and believe they’ve “hit the jackpot.” 

The rapper and entertainment mogul has portrayed Odafin “Fin” Tutuola since the second season of the show and nearly tops the list of L&O franchise actors who have appeared in the most episodes. While he has thought about how he wants Fin’s story to end, he seems more focused on looking at the past and present and the incredible milestone that SVU has reached. While speaking with People, he also discussed how fans have continued to support the show:

I think SVU is a special show because it’s the first time I’ve ever done something where people walk up in the street and say thank you. And I found out that SVU is as much entertainment as it is therapy for a lot of women because a lot of the women that watch the show are survivors – guys too. So it has a different feeling versus just normal entertainment.
