New York - April 10, 2014 - Actor Donal Logue ("Sons of Anarchy," "Vikings,") will star in a recurring role on NBC's hit Wolf Films/Universal Television series "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit." Logue will continue his role as Lieutenant Declan Murphy, acting commander of the New York Special Victims Unit. He is slated to appear through the end of the season. "Law & Order: SVU" airs Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. ET.

Logue guest starred as Murphy earlier this season when he crossed paths with Detective Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) while working undercover ("Gambler's Fallacy). Murphy joined the SVU as acting commander during this evening's episode ("Beast's Obsession").

Logue's versatility and talent makes him one of the most well respected and loved actors in the business. He currently stars in the HISTORY series "Vikings" as King Horik and will star in the upcoming Fox series "Gotham" as Detective Harvey Bullock. He previously starred in series such as "Sons of Anarchy," "Copper," "Terriers," "Life," "The Knights of Prosperity," "Grounded for Life" and "ER." Logue broke out in the feature film world starring in "The Tao of Steve" as the larger-than-life, philosophizing lothario. The film was praised by critics and debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, where he won a Special Jury Prize for Outstanding Performance. Other film credits include "Blade," "The Runaway Bride," "Reindeer Games," "The Patriot," "Comic Book Villians," "Just Like Heaven," "The Groomsmen," "Ghost Rider," "Zodiac," "Max Payne," "Oliver Sherman," "Charlie St. Cloud" and "CBGB," opposite Alan Rickman and Malin Ackerman.

Logue made his directorial debut with the independent film "Tennis, Anyone?" which premiered at the US Comedy Arts Festival. He wrote, starred, and directed the film about two Hollywood has-beens who try and find meaning in their lives through a series of celebrity tennis tournaments.

"SVU" returns with new episodes beginning Wednesday, April 30 (9-10p.m. ET). In "Post-Mortem Blues," the SVU must deal with the aftermath of William Lewis' suicide when the IAB investigation into Sergeant Benson's (Mariska Hargitay) actions is inconclusive. Her nightmare continues as a lengthy trial and insufficient evidence puts her career in jeopardy.

"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" is a Wolf Films production in association with Universal Television. Dick Wolf is creator and executive producer. Warren Leight, Julie Martin, Jonathan Starch and Peter Jankowski are executive producers.
