Twenty-two years and going strong.
E! News has an exclusive sneak peek at tonight’s brand new episode of USA’s Straight Up Steve Austin with special guest Ice-T. In the preview, the hip-hop star reflects on over two decades of playing NYPD sergeant Fin on NBC’s hit drama Law & Order: SVU and how ironic the successful role is given his criminal past.
“Playing a police! How the f–k?!” Ice-T laughed in the video while chatting with Steve Austin. “I went on the show to do four episodes, man. Here it is, we’re starting the 22nd season. I can’t really explain it man.”
“Is it still fun?” Steve asked.
“Yeah, it’s fun because of the work environment,” the actor replied. “Here’s a funny story for you. So when I first got on the show I was with Richard Belzer. And I was there for about three months and they were like, ‘Well, Ice, you’re not bonding with the group.’ Meaning I guess they didn’t think I was gonna go out to lunch with them and all that. I was just saying my lines.”
