Chris Meloni Joins The Cast Of ‘True Blood’

Good news for both Law & Order: SVU and True Blood fans: Chris Meloni has just signed on as a series regular starting season five of the HBO hit, according to Entertainment Weekly.  Meloni will play an “ancient and powerful vampire who holds the fate of Bill and Eric in his hands.”

This is not Meloni’s first rodeo with the Home Box Office.  He played Chris Keller on Oz from 1998-2003.

I don’t care what kinds of projects Meloni has lined up.  I just want him to reprise his role as Gene in Wet Hot American Summer.  “Now, finish up with them taters.  I’m gonna go fondle my sweaters.”
