Law & Order: SVU has had many memorable guest stars over the years, including “America’s Dad,” the late comedian Bob Saget.

Saget starred in a season eight episode called “Choreographed.” In the show, he played a jealous husband, named Glenn Cheales. Saget’s character places a tracking chip in his wife after he suspects her of cheating. While he turns out to be correct, the episode takes a wild twist. Instead of his wife or her lover turning up dead, it is her lover’s wife. Cheales reveals himself to be the murder, and his actions put his wife in the hospital.

However, this doesn’t happen in the way one might expect. The needle that injected the tracker in his wife was unsterile. As a result, she develops sepsis. In a tragic twist of fate, Cheales is a match for his wife, and he donates part of his liver to her. Even so, she refuses to look him in the eyes as the nurses wheel them past each other.

His appearance on SVU was chilling, but Saget was famous for a more heartwarming variety of content. The actor starred as lovable widower Danny Tanner on Full House for eight seasons. On Jan. 9 2022, the comedian died in an Orlando hotel room. Police said they suspect no foul play or drug use.

Full House Stars Pay Tribute to Bob Saget

Saget’s costars from Full House took to social media to mourn the star. The series starred Saget alongside John Stamos as his former brother-in-law and Dave Coulier as his best friend. Both men move in with Tanner to help raise his three daughters, played by Candace Cameron, Jodie Sweeten, and Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. His death left his former onscreen family heartbroken..

“Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man,” said the Olsen twins in a statement to People. “We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us as gracefully as he always has.”

Their onscreen older sister, Cameron, tweeted: “I don’t know what to say. I have no words. Bob was one of the best humans beings I’ve ever known in my life. I loved him so much.”

“My heart is broken,” Coulier wrote in response to the news. “I love you, Bob. Your forever brother, Dave.” Though the show ended over 25 years ago, the cast remained close over the years. They even reunited for the Netflix reboot Fuller House, which lasted five seasons.

“I am broken, I am gutted, I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby,” stated Stamos.
