Joe Biden, the Vice President of the United States of America, will appear on an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit this fall.

Biden, who has a long history of fighting for the rights of violence and sexual assault survivors, will play himself in an episode set to air early in the show’s 18th season.

Per Huffington Post:

He’ll tape an appearance Friday on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” the popular and long-running procedural drama that focuses on sex crimes. Biden’s appearance will focus on the backlog of untested rape kits, according to the White House.

Combating violence against women has been one of the top issues of Biden’s political career. During his time as a senator from Delaware, he introduced the Violence Against Women Act, which eventually passed in 1994, and as vice president he has been involved in efforts to stop campus sexual assaults.
