Former WWE Superstar and World Heavyweight Champion Bill Goldberg makes his prime time television debut, guest starring on NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” Tuesday, February 6 at 10 PM ET/PT. Goldberg guest stars as (Cupid) a crazed convict. In this episode titled “Loophole,” an anonymous envelope appears at the precinct and the detectives use it to pick up the trail of a pornographer.
Goldberg has a family connection to the show – his first cousin is “SVU” executive producer and head writer Neal Baer, M.D., who says “I’ve waited years to work with my cousin Bill, and the cast and I were not disappointed. Now I know who to go to when I need an enforcer.”
In this episode, Goldberg (Cupid) tosses Detective Elliot Stabler (Chris Meloni) through a window. Goldberg is one of the biggest names the wrestling business has ever seen, and has transitioned from being a superstar in the ring to a television and feature film star. After a brief football career, he changed his focus to develop what became a long and celebrated career in professional wrestling. Goldberg has since held staring roles in a number of feature films including The Longest Yard, Santa’s Slay, Looney Tunes: Back in Action, Ready to Rumble, and Universal Soldier II.
Mariska Hargitay, Chris Meloni, Dann Florek, Richard Belzer, B.D. Wong, Diane Neal and Tamara Tunie star in “Law & Order: SVU.”
