NEW YORK, April 3 (UPI) -- Comedic icon Jerry Lewis will play a homeless man who turns out to be the uncle of Richard Belzer's Lt. John Munch on NBC's "Law & Order: SVU."

The episode starts filming in New York Friday, the New York Post reported Monday.

In the episode called "Uncle," police arrest Andrew Munch as a suspect in a murder case. The episode will air next fall, the Post said.

Although he is best known for his comedies, Lewis, 80, received rave reviews for his dramatic turn in Martin Scorsese's 1983 film, "The King of Comedy."
