The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Eion will play an Iraq war vet on SVU. His character, Frank Patterson, has PTSD, and is "a key witness in an investigation of a sexual assault in a nightclub. "
Sounds a bit different than August!
You can catch Eion in the role this April — he'll be on Season 14, Episode 21. The show airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
You may recall that Eion was cast in the pilot for TNT's Trooperearlier this year. Unfortunately, TNT passed on that show. Hopefully this SVU role is a sign of things to come for Eion, because we don't like the idea of having him off our TV screens for too long.
Are you already missing August? Us too. Share your feelings about his fate here.
Catch the next episode of Once Upon a Time on Sunday, April 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
