Tracy Marrow aka Ice-T has been acting since almost before he was known as a rapper – small roles in 'Breakin' and its sequel actually put him on the map, professionally speaking. But in the early ‘90s, he got the opportunity to show more sides of himself, and in 'New Jack City,' he became an icon as Scotty Appleton, a cop so determined and fearless that he actually tells a perp at one point, “I want to shoot you so bad my d--k is hard.” Since then he’s spent a lot of time in supporting roles in unusual films – among them 'Tank Girl' and 'Frankenpenis' – but from 2000 to present, he’s played a detective on 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,' squaring off against the likes of Richard Belzer, and more than holding his own.
