He's appeared once before on Law & Order: SVU in the 2003 episode "Mercy" and in a 2003 episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent. He's playing a new character in the Thursday, Nov. 29 episode. Shawn, who previously appeared in SVU's 2009 episode "Snatched," is best known for The Princess Bride, Clueless, Toy Story and My Dinner with Andre. He also has a Criminal Intent credit, the 2006 episode "Weeping Willow."
