STAGE TUBE: Raul Esparza on His LAW & ORDER: SVU Character

Tony nominee Raúl Esparza will play the recurring role of "DA Rafael Barba" on Law & Order: SVU beginning on Wednesday, October 10. The episode, titled "Twenty-Five Acts," centers on the author of a best-selling erotic novel (Anna Chlumsky) who accuses a high-profile talk show host (Roger Bart) of rape. The SVU detectives face an uphill battle when they find that her account of the rape is exactly like the chapters in her book, and along with the DA's office (Esparza), they struggle to keep the case from turning into a media circus.

In the video below, Esparza chats about his character on the series!

Since making his Broadway debut, Esparza has become only the second actor to receive Tony nominations in all four eligible acting categories. Most recently he took on the role of con artist Jonas Nightingale in the Broadway musical adaptation of "Leap of Faith" directed by Christopher Ashley. Esparza's TV credits include "Law & Order," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "Pushing Daisies" and "A Gifted Man."

Esparza is also slated to appear in SVU's November 14 episode.
