TWD Cast on Law & Order: SVU [1/10] - Norman Reedus S7.E22/Influence
“They strap you down to a special table that flips over so that you don’t choke on your own vomit. Then they inject you with a muscle relaxant, then they tape electrodes to your forehead and turn up the juice. When your toes start twitching that means you’re having a major convulsion, which is what they want. That’s what they call healing.”
“I don’t even think it’s worth showing,” said longtime S.V.U. cast member Ice-T, who plays Det. Fin Tutuola. “It wasn’t one of our best shows.”
Ice-T, who spoke with Vanity Fair in conjunction with the release of his new film, Bloodrunners, may not think much of the episode—but he did offer additional details about it. “There was this guy who was running for president—he was very Trump-ish, and girls were coming out of the woodwork saying he was raping them,” he said. “And me and Mariska [Hargitay, who plays Lt. Olivia Benson],we’re on his bumper, and he’s sweating it. But at the end of the day, it comes out that he was innocent. He didn’t do it. So we’ve got to apologize, and he’s still doing his thing, talking his shit. And it turns out that his campaign advisor, who was his best friend, was booby-trapping him because he knew he would be terrible for America!”
I think before now we never knew in detail what happens in “Unstoppable”.
And it’s funny to finally hear one of the cast admit that an episode sucked.
