The Oscar-nominated actor wrote a lengthy appreciation for SVU on Instagram for the long-running NBC crime drama over the weekend. "I heard this show is been on for 20 yrs,i never knew anything about it before until the lockdown since i have all my gym equipment in my living room,6 months ago while i’ve been doing all my training at home isolating i click on this show just by accident and curiosity and have to say i’ve never seen such terrific acting ever on television!" he wrote. "Each show that i seen and I probably seen a 1000 of them by now the producing is terrific,the direction is top class and most of all i am really impressed with this ensembles of highly talented actors." Rourke also offered praise for Mariska Hargitay, "a very concentrated actress,she is absolutely great in every episode. Her dedication and very meticulous work put her on another level. There’s very few,if any actresses in films these days that can hold her jock strap. I give her tremendous respect for her amazing ability." As for Christopher Meloni, Rourke writes, "the man brings a lot to the table with his physicality,his short fuse knowing that he had a high level football background explaining it all."
