Ever since Questlove told an Us Weekly reporter that it was his “fantasy to play a dead body on Law & Order” last year, the wheels to make that dream happen have been in motion. Last night, the dream was realized, and as it turns out, Questo makes a great corpse. Thankfully, though, it was all merely acting.
The cameo was brief, yes, but it was there—a mere 37 seconds of screen time, about half of which were with everyone’s favorite investigator, Detective Tutuola. The result is an absolutely masterful performance, complete with no discernable movement or breathing. It’s not action-y, but it is very dead.
If you happened to miss Questlove’s appearance, you can check out his skills in the video below. The whole episode, though is available over on Hulu.
The stillness, it is amazing:
