Tamara Tunie joins Elvis Duran and the Morning Show Thursday to talk about Elvis Duran’s appearance on the show tonight May 13th! Dr. Warner as she is known on Law & Order SVU, tells us that “Elvis’ dead body was the best dead body I’ve ever had,” Although she admits she says that about all of her dead bodies….. we can tell from the sound of her voice she ~really~ means it talking about Elvis!
Elvis isn’t the only recognizable person you can find just playing a dead body on the show. “It happens periodically,” Tunie tells Elvis and the members of the show, “Most recent that I can remember was Quest Love from The Roots. He decided it was his dream to be a dead body on SVU. It’s always exciting. It really boosts the morale.
Before she left, we wanted to find out from Tunie if she plans on joining the spin-off cast of Law & Order: Organized Crime. Former cast member Chris Meloni is now the lead of that show. “Chris Meloni and I have remained very good friends,” Tunie tells the show. The two and his wife were at dinner the other night and “He just looked at me and said ‘you should be on the show’ and I said ‘yes Christopher, do something!’ I guess we’ll see if Dr. Warner makes an appearance in the future!
You can watch Tunie on Law and order SVU 9/8C on NBC and be sure to watch TONIGHT and look out for Elvis playing the part of ‘dead body.’
