Um..YES PLEASE. Law and Order SVU alum Chris Meloni is being courted for a major role in season 5 of True Blood. Fans of Chris have missed him on screen since his departure from SVU so this should make them happy. Especially when said show involves nudity.
Line has learned exclusively that the former Law & Order: SVU front man is circling what my sources are calling a “major role” in the show’s upcoming fifth season.
But what role? An HBO rep declined to comment, but I hear Meloni — who’s currently shooting a top-secret role in The Man of Steel — is in talks to play (duh) an incredibly powerful vampire.
If a deal comes to pass, this would be a major casting coup for True Blood. It would also mark a high-profile return to the small screen for Meloni following his sudden departure from SVU last spring.
