FILM STARS ADAM BEACH AND KAL PENN GUEST STAR ON NBC'S 'LAW & ORDER: SVU', TUESDAY, JANUARY 16, (10 P.M. ET/PT)

NEW YORK � January 9, 2007 � Actors Adam Beach ("Flags of Our Fathers") and Kal Penn ("Van Wilder") guest star on NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" episode 'Outsider' premiering on Tuesday, Jan.16th at 10 PM ET/PT. In this episode, Det. Odafin "Fin" Tutuola (Ice-T) is asked by his son a resident adviser at college, to look into a rape case of a coed at his school. As the case deepens, Fin is joined by an SVU detective from Brooklyn named Chester Lake (guest star Adam Beach) who is working a similar case and believes there is a connection.

The trail leads to a women's clinic where Dets. Fin and Lake find the common link between their victims. After further investigation, a game of cat and mouse develops with the doctor's son, Henry (guest star Penn) that takes a drastic twist.

Executive Producer Neal Bear said, "We're thrilled to have film stars Adam Beach ("Flags of Our Fathers," "Windtalkers") and Kal Penn ("Van Wilder" and "Harold and Kumar Go to the White Castle") as guest stars on the episode 'Outsider.' They bring amazing energy and some funny moments to SVU -- and the sparks really fly between Adam, an SVU detective from Brooklyn, and Ice-T, who are brought together on a case of rapes spreading across New York City."

Adam Beach can be seen in Clint Eastwood's critically acclaimed "Flags of Our Fathers," as one of the flag raisers on Iwo Jima, that has earned him a Satellite Award Nomination. He has also appeared in "Joe Dirt," "Windtalkers" and "Mystery, Alaska."

Kal Penn rose to popularity as the socially inept Taj in "National Lampoon's Van Wilder" (2002). Penn reprised the role of Taj in the sequel, "National Lampoon's Van Wilder: The Rise of Taj," which is currently in theatres. His work in television includes guest roles on "ER," "NYPD Blue" and "Angel."

Both actors are appearing on "Law & Order: SVU" for the first time.

Mariska Hargitay, Chris Meloni, Dann Florek, Richard Belzer, B.D. Wong, Diane Neal and Tamara Tunie also star in "Law & Order: SVU."

"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" is a Wolf Films production in association with Studios USA Television. Dick Wolf is creator and executive producer, Ted Kotcheff and Neal Baer are executive producers; Peter Jankowski, Arthur Forney, and Judith McCreary are co-executive producers.
