Walsh will play John Conway, a “self-made man and major beverage distributor who is respected by his community and looked up to by his children,” per Deadline. Hmmm… that sounds like someone who might just turn out to be a sex criminal, if we know our SVU history.
Known for his starring roles on FX’s Nip/Tuck and CBS’ Unforgettable, Walsh recently co-starred as Lucy Hale’s dad on the short-lived CW dramedy Life Sentence. And he actually had a previous run-in with the SVU crew: Walsh guest-starred as a CIA agent whose fiancée ends up dead in Season 8’s “Annihilated.”
Walsh’s guest spot doesn’t have an airdate yet, but SVU returns for its 20th season with a two-hour premiere on Thursday, Sept. 27 at 9/8c.
