Mariska Hargitay of ‘SVU’ and Joe Biden: BFFs?

Power duo alert: Actress Mariska Hargitay and Vice President Joe Biden are proving to be quite the team lately.

Hargitay, best known for her role as Lt. Olivia Benson on “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit,” narrated the biographical video introducing Biden at the Democratic National Convention last week.

Now, Biden is returning the favor by making a cameo appearance on her crime drama, which focuses on sexual assault cases. According to the White House, the appearance will focus “on the rape kit backlog and efforts to end violence against women.”

Biden and Hargitay have worked on those issues together in real life, too, with Biden taping a PSA that ran during past episodes of the show.
