In the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode ‘Net Worth’, a wealthy investment banker named Zoe Weller (guest star Missy Peregrym) accuses Eli Coleman, her billionaire client, of rape. She says they went out to dinner to celebrate his latest acquisition and then they went back to his penthouse. She says he wanted to show her his watch collection which was in his bedroom. She said they did kiss but she told him clearly that she didn’t want to have sex. When Zoe told her boss about what happened, he told her to “think it over. It’s never easy to kill the king.”
Eli Coleman is portrayed by Tate Donovan. He’s known for his roles on The Man in the High Castle (George Dixon), Masters of Sex (Graham Pennington), 24: Live Another Day (Mark Boudreau), Hostages (Brian Sanders), Deception (Edward Bowers), The O.C. (Jimmy Cooper), and Friends (Rachel’s beloved Joshua), among others. Law & Order: Special Victims Unit airs Wednesdays at 9pm on NBC.
