The series cast of veteran actors includes Mariska Hargitay and rapper Ice-T, and occasional crossover episodes feature detectives from other series including editions of the ``Law & Order'' franchise and as well as ``Chicago PD,'' another series from the mind of executive producer Dick Wolf.

Ice-t as Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola
