LAW and Order: SVU star Ice-T has announced a new project outside of his work on the long-running drama.
The 64-year-old, who recently raised concerns about the possibility of him leaving SVU, has released a brand new podcast titled Ice-T’s Daily Game.
The actor announced the launch of his new podcast to fans on Monday, posting podcast images and a little bit about what to expect to hear.
Ice-T wrote: “WARNING @icetsdailygame is now live.
“Hear me inspirational quotes every weekday on my new podcast Ice-T’s Daily Game on iHeartRadio, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts.”
Speaking to ‘Entertainment Tonight’ about the new gig, the presenter said: “Every day I put out something called ‘Cold Fact’ or ‘Game of the Day’.
“And it’s just things I’ve learned or quotes I use from my life. A lot of them come from me, a lot of them come from other people I respect.
“I recorded 200 of these and they come every day. And hopefully that inspires people and motivates people.
“I think we all need motivation and we all need some of the keys that some successful people use to win.”
Ice-T’s latest venture comes just weeks after the star accidentally sparked rumors he was leaving SVU.

The longtime Law and Order star shared behind-the-scenes content from the set of the drama on social media, but his posts were taken in the wrong direction.
Fans began worrying he might be saying goodbye to the series after he posted a video of himself in a car while cameras and TV magic worked around him.
It was the caption that got followers worried.
Ice-T wrote alongside the video: “SVU behind the scenes from Friday night. Filming the episode of my character FIN… #SVUSeason24”
Confused fans, who may have read the note too quickly, began to wonder if he is leaving the show and filming his final episode.
One angry social media user wrote: “What?!?!?! Nooooooooooooooooooo!
Another asked: “You leaving SVU? If so, what a run.”
A third fan pleaded, “Ice, please tell me you mean your character ‘fin’ and not fin like in the last episode.”
“Hope you’re not leaving,” a fourth simply wrote.
SVU fans needn’t worry, however, as many helpful people pointed out to those affected that Ice-T’s character is simply nicknamed Fin.
They explained that in the circumstances, the actor didn’t seem to use the term fin to indicate that his final episode on the show was in the works, but that he was working on a pivotal episode.
One fan pointed out, “Guys fin is the nickname for his character Odafin Tutuola, he’s not leaving the show.”
Another said: “He is NOT leaving the show. The ‘Fin’ episode he is referring to is an episode that focuses on his character Odafin ‘Fin’ Tutuola.”
Fans can now catch the big episode centered around Ice-T’s character on Thursday February 16, the star’s real-life birthday.
