Mike Tyson To Guest Star on "Law & Order: SVU"

Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is stepping into the ring with "Law & Order: SVU."

The former boxing champ will guest-star on the NBC procedural drama next month, a spokeswoman for the network told TheWrap on Friday.

Tyson will play Reggie Rhodes, a murderer on death row who was victimized by a difficult childhood.

The episode is currently scheduled to air on February 13, just in time for Valentine's Day.

Tyson has acted before, though he's primarily played himself, perhaps most notably in "The Hangover" series of movies. (He's also played onetime presidential candidate Herman Cain in a pair of short films.)
