Goldberg has a family connection to the show - his first cousin is SVU executive producer and head writer Neal Baer, M.D., who says "I've waited years to work with my cousin Bill, and the cast and I were not disappointed. Now I know who to go to when I need an enforcer."
In this episode, Goldberg (Cupid) tosses Detective Elliot Stabler (Chris Meloni) through a window. Goldberg is one of the biggest names the wrestling business has ever seen, and has transitioned from being a superstar in the ring to a television and feature film star. After a brief football career, he changed his focus to develop what became a long and celebrated career in professional wrestling. Goldberg has since held staring roles in a number of feature films including The Longest Yard, Santa's Slay, Looney Tunes: Back In Action, Ready to Rumble, and Universal Soldier II.
