Stamos will play an adoption attorney with a secret passion in the episode titled "Bang."Footloose star Lori Singer will also appear in the episode as a new mother who is struggling with her increased responsibilities.

Sheen initially criticized the possible casting, but apologized to the Full House star. "I was out of line and you are a beautiful man, and a talented man and if you get the gig ... we should talk," he told reporters Wednesday.
Stamos can be seen on Tuesday's episode of Glee and is currently filming the romantic comedy New Year's Eve.
Law & Order: SVU airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on NBC.
