Vice President Joe Biden is set to make his debut appearance on "Law & Order: SVU" Wednesday.
The White House released a statement about the episode that Biden will be featured in, which will focus on "the rape kit backlog and efforts to end violence against women."
SVU actress Marika Hargitay and Vice President Biden have addressed this issue off-screen as well. Biden has been part of the PSAs for Hargitay's "Joyful Heart Foundation" and the "No More" campaign to end sexual assault and domestic violence. Hargitay also recently presented Biden with the Finnegan Award at her charity's gala and lent her voice to introduce him at the Democratic National Convention.
Despite the fact this is Biden’s first appearance on the 18-season show, he is no stranger to the camera. He made several guest appearances as himself on NBC's "Parks and Recreation."
Biden will also make an appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" Thursday night.
