Questlove to Play Victim on 'Law and Order: SVU'
Questlove has had his dream come true. The Roots' drummer has landed a role on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" in the 18th episode of season 15 which is directed by series regular Mariska Hargitay.
On Friday, February 21, the show's star Ice-T shared a sneak peek at Questlove's guest appearance. In the photo, the leader of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" house band lies on autopsy coroner's table with what appears to be a gunshot wound in his head. "SVU Behind The Scenes: This corpse looks strangely familiar...," Ice-T captioned the picture.
It has been Questlove's wish to play a corpse on the long-running police procedural series. He once told Us Weekly, "It's my fantasy to play a dead body on Law & Order."
In the same episode, former "30 Rock" actor Alec Baldwin will also guest star. His role is still kept under wraps, but Ice-T confirmed, "And then she's [Hargitay] going to actually have Alec Baldwin in a shot, in a scene in the show, and try to direct herself."
The episode will mark a directorial debut for the actress who has starred as Olivia Benson since the first episode of the NBC series.
