Questlove to guest as dead body on ‘Law and Order SVU’

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Questlove’s dead body. Sort of, anyway—in actuality, he is merely acting. And us Philadelphians have Law and Order SVU to thank for this particular nightmare-turned-almost-reality.

SVU castmember Ice T tweeted out the above photo, which shows Questo laid out rather lifelessly on a coroner’s table courtesy of the bullet hole adorning his forehead. “SVU Behind the Scences: This corpse looks strangely familiar…” Ice T wrote. 

But don’t cry for the Roots drummer—this actually is a dream of his. Seriously. Last year, Questlove told Us Weekly that it’s his “fantasy to play a dead body on Law & Order.” Ask and ye shall receive, even if it’s a little morbid.

No word yet on the air date for dead Questlove’s episode, but no worries—you can always can him alive and kicking on the Tonight show. It’s the small things, people.
