Mark your calendars, America. The Vice President is coming to cable.
Weekend after next, October 18 and 19th, VP Joe Biden himself will join Mariska Hargitay, for a Law & Order: Special Victims Unit marathon on the USA network to promote domestic violence awareness. He and Hargitay have already filmed a series of PSAs that will air between episodes in the 18-hour run.
Talk about an arresting duo: "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" star Mariska Hargitay and Vice President Joe Biden, together at last!
No, the VP is not making a special guest appearance on the long-running NBC series. Instead, he and Hargitay have joined forces on several public service announcements that will air during an "SVU" marathon set to air on USA Network on Sunday, Oct. 19.
The 14-hour run of back-to-back "SVU" episodes, called "No More Excuses," is an event for National Domestic Violence Awareness month in October, and is partnered with Hargitay's Joyful Heart Foundation and the NO MORE campaign.
