The actor will appear in a March episode of “Law & Order: SVU,” a show representative told TheWrap.

Baldwin starred on “30 Rock” for seven seasons, a role that earned him two Emmy awards. Recently, his MSNBC talk show was canceled by the cable news network after the actor made controversial anti-gay statements. His other TV credits include NBC’s “Will & Grace,” “Friends” and CBS’s primetime soap opera “Knot’s Landing.”

His movie credits include “Beetlejuice,” “The Hunt for Red October,” “Glengarry Glen Ross” and “Rock of Ages,” among many others.
