Tracy Lauren "Ice-T" Marrow (born February 16, 1958 in Newark, New Jersey) is an American rap musician, actor,CEO, record producer, screenwriter, and author.
As an actor, he is best known for his starring role in New Jack City and for playing Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Another notable film role was kangaroo warrior T-Saint in Tank Girl, alongside Don Harvey, Malcolm McDowell, and Lori Petty.
When Ice-T went in to record his lines (which was a little while before becoming known for his part on SVU), Kevin Conroy expressed surprise that a rapper wanted to voice act. Ice-T responded by saying that he had heard from everybody how much fun it was and wanted a try.
