You read it right, folks - Questlove, The Roots' resident percussionist, historian and DJ, will play the role of a murder victim on an upcoming episode of police procedural drama Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, which stars veteran emcee Ice-T.

"It's my fantasy to play a dead body on Law & Order," Questlove told US Weekly last November as part of their ongoing "25 Things You Don't Know About Me" series. 

Peep a still from the set in the gallery above, shot by Ice "Cop Killa" T himself. It was accompanied by the caption "SVU Behind The Scenes... this corpse looks strangely familiar". Check a few more out on Quest's Instagram account as well.

The Roots' classic 1999 album Things Fall Apart dropped fifteen years ago today, by the way.
