Actors Adam Beach
and Kal Penn
guest star on NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
episode "Outsider" premiering on Tuesday, Jan. 16, at 10 PM ET/PT. In this episode, Det. Odafin "Fin" Tutuola is asked by his son a resident adviser at college, to look into a rape case of a coed at his school. As the case deepens, Fin is joined by an SVU detective from Brooklyn named Chester Lake who is working a similar case and believes there is a connection.
The trail leads to a women's clinic where Dets. Fin and Lake find the common link between their victims. After further investigation, a game of cat and mouse develops with the doctor's son, Henry (guest star Penn) that takes a drastic twist.
Executive Producer Neal Bear said, "We're thrilled to have film stars Adam Beach and Kal Penn as guest stars on the episode 'Outsider.' They bring amazing energy and some funny moments to SVU -- and the sparks really fly between Adam, an SVU detective from Brooklyn, and Ice-T
, who are brought together on a case of rapes spreading across New York City."
