Biden will appear in a new story line focused on violence against women. The politician wrote the Violence Against Women Act in 1994.

It's not the first time he has teamed up with Law & Order star Mariska Hargitay - the pair collaborated on a public service announcement about sexual assault in 2014.

Earlier this year (16), Hargitay's Joyful Heart Foundation gave Biden an award for his work to end domestic violence. The actress also narrated the video which introduced the Vice President at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday (27Jul16).
