Questlove Makes Debut on ‘Law & Order: SVU’ as Dead Body [VIDEO]
As a member of the Roots, working on ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ and releasing a book last year, Questlove has a pretty good career going for himself. However, there’s one thing he’s always wanted to do — play a dead body on ‘Law & Order: SVU.’ That may sound weird, but the drummer got his chance to do just that last night (March 19).
In Wednesday night’s episode of ‘Law & Order: SVU,’ Questlove met his acting fate when he was presented as a corpse on the forensics examination table with a bullet wound in his head.
The show’s stars, Ice-T, Tamara Tunie and Kelli Giddish, circle around the body to discuss the crime and what happened to the victim — Questlove just lies there. After dialogue is exchanged, the blue sheet covering his body is pulled over his face.
In an interview with Us Weekly last year, Questlove revealed that he would love to play a dead body on the ‘Law & Order’ series, and it looks like the producers and writers paid attention.
Now it’s clear that dreams really can come true. Our only question is — how many takes occurred for him to play a dead body?
