On Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, while the team works with a violinist who was raped by her colleague who claims he doesn’t remember anything because he was drugged by an escort, Sgt. Mike Dodds reports to work at the SVU squad. That’s Dodds, as in, the son of Deputy Chief William Dodds (Peter Gallagher).
Sgt. Dodds is portrayed by Andy Karl. He’s best known for his roles on Broadway. He made his debut in Saturday Night Fever where he met his wife, Orfeh. After that, he played Luke in the off-Broadway hit Altar Boyz. He got the opportunity to work with his wife again in Legally Blonde, The Musical. She played Paulette the hairdresser — he played Kyle the UPS man. Karl also has experience in film. He played Caleb in Joyful Noise with Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton, and Ted in And So It Goes with Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton. Law & Order: Special Victims Unit airs Wednesdays at 9pm on NBC.
