If you absolutely loved seeing Joe Biden’s speech at the DNC this week, and also have a weird infatuation with detective-based dramas, well, do we have news for you — it’s been reported that our Vice President will be appearing on an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU. The episode will focus around a big issue that Biden is truly passionate about: the increasingly large backlog of untested rape kits in America. With the increasing amount of sexual assault in our country, it’s a great way to make this issue even more public, and Biden is one of the best people to shed even more light on the topic.

Of course, this isn’t Biden’s first acting role. After all, he did have cameos during a 2012 episode, as well as the series finale, of Parks & Recreation, which totally completed the fun story arc of Leslie Knope’s series-long crush on the VP.

Good times.

So far, it’s not clear as to what Biden’s role will be, but we’re sure that it will definitely be an important part of the episode. The show confirmed his role on Twitter, and mentioned that it’d be hitting our TV screens this fall.

(Just as an FYI, the SVU Twitter account is actually pretty hilarious, so it’s definitely worth a follow.)

We can’t wait to check out our VP on TV. It’ll be compelling television, for sure.
