TVLine Items: SVU Boss Visits L&O: OC, Arrow Vet Joins BMF and More

Law & Order: Organized Crime Dann Florek

Stabler is getting a visit from his old boss: Former Law & Order: SVU cast member Dann Florek will guest-star as Captain Donald Cragen on the spinoff Organized Crime, TVLine has confirmed.

In the April 7 episode, “when Donnelly’s (Denis Leary) version of events don’t match up to what Stabler remembers about his father’s heroic rescue on the job, Stabler turns to his friend and mentor Donald Cragen for help sorting out the truths from the lies,” per the official synopsis.

Florek previously reprised his role as Cragen — which he originated on the mothership L&O — in SVU‘s 500th episode this past October.
