Rapper Ice-T will share time on the small screen with a familiar face as his wife, Nicole “CoCo” Austin, guest stars on his hit NBC show Law and Order: Special Victims Unit (SVU).
In the episode, titled “Fight,” the swimsuit model will play the girlfriend of professional fighter Mike Kona (Forrest Griffin) who is questioned by authorities after the fighter’s DNA is found in the woods where a teenager’s body is discovered.
Although the young girl’s death seems to be linked to the world of ultimate fighting, the investigation leads detectives Chester Lake (Adam Beach) and Odafin “Fin” Tutuola (Ice-T) to two young brothers (Friday Night Lights) Gauis Charles and Arlen Escarpeta) after questioning Kona and his girlfriend.
Tension soon arises in the SVU after the arrest of the brothers, who have more than a few skeletons in their closet.
Austin’s role on SVU marks the first time she has acted alongside Ice-T, who stars on the show with Mariska Hargitay, Chris Meloni, Dann Florek, Ice-T, Diane Neal, Tamara Tunie, Richard Belzer, and BD Wong.
Austin’s Law and Order: SVU appearance will air at 10 p.m. ET/PT tonight (Nov. 20) on NBC.
