Exclusive: USA's Fairly Legal Serves Up a Savory Helping of Meat Loaf

Meat Loaf will be on the menu when USA Network’s Fairly Legal serves up its sophomore run this spring, TVLine has learned.

The rocker-slash-actor, born Marvin Lee Aday, will guest-star in Episode 9 as Charlie DeKay, an old-school, blue-collar transportation union boss with a dirty mouth who wields an iron fist as he threatens to bring San Francisco to a halt in order to protect his workers. Enter Sarah Shahi’s Kate Reed, as your preternaturally telegenic mediator.

Meat Loaf’s previous TV credits include Celebrity ApprenticeMonk, House and a wink-wink cameo during Glee’s Rocky Horror Picture Show homage.
