“Law & Order: SVU” star Ice-T tweeted the following picture of Questlove from the show’s set Friday (Feb. 21), with Questlove playing a dead body laid out in the morgue. Note that even though he has a bullet hole in his head, his Afro pick stayed put.

Questlove’s dead-body cameo apparently fulfills a dream of his. In a “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me” piece for Us Weekly in November 2013, he wrote, “It’s my fantasy to play a dead body on ‘Law & Order.'” Shortly after Ice-T shared his photo, Questlove posted a picture from the “SVU” offices with the caption, “See @UsWeekly? Dreams come true!”
NBC says Questlove’s “SVU” episode will air sometime in March, though details of how he ends up on the slab aren’t available. The show returns from its Olympics hiatus Wednesday (Feb. 26) at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
