Christopher Meloni to join True Blood as a series regular

That noise you hear is the sound of Twitter exploding into a million little pieces over the following news: After weeks of negotiations, Chris Meloni is officially joining True Blood as a series regular in Season 5.

According to executive producer Alan Ball, the former Law & Order: SVU front man will play, ”An ancient, powerful vampire who holds the fate of Bill and Eric in his hands.”

The gig brings Meloni back into the HBO fold for the first time since his days on Oz. It also mark a high-profile return to the small screen for the upcoming Man of Steel actor following his sudden departure fromSVU last spring.

Urgent Notice: I’ll be revealing more details about Meloni’s vamp alter ego in the next 24 hours on Twitter, so best start following me at @MichaelAusiello now!

I would prefer if he were playing Steve Newlin's lover.
badcord 14th-Dec-2011 01:20 am (UTC)
Steve's lover could be an ancient powerful vampire
pirate_skanky 14th-Dec-2011 01:21 am (UTC)
yes plz. I mean we all know know that Steve isn't straight.
pirate_skanky 14th-Dec-2011 01:21 am (UTC)
But between him, and Steve and Russell being back, this season might actually be....okay.

bad ass addition?

shantayustay 14th-Dec-2011 01:29 am (UTC)
Hot ass addition!
lauracoy 14th-Dec-2011 01:51 am (UTC)
They need to kill a bunch of the other unnecessary 'reg' characters that no one really gives a fuck about and concentrate on zee vampire world more...so possible badass but will prob be drowned out with the need for more Andy, Tara, Arlene bullshit.
jess_sayin 14th-Dec-2011 01:58 am (UTC)
right!? If they bring back tara, im calling bullshit.
saintclaire87 14th-Dec-2011 02:06 am (UTC)
Hopefully bad ass.
hairdidright 14th-Dec-2011 01:18 am (UTC)
o m g cannot wait for him to die at the end of the season, like all antagonists in TB do.

I would say may be this is how they work Ocella in, but I'm a bit afraid of what they will do.
rheya_kelvin 14th-Dec-2011 11:07 am (UTC)
Ugh, that pedo with his lame T-shirts...

Though TB writers tend to do amazing things with minor characters from the book. See Franklyn, Russell, Season 1 Tara, Laffy & Talbot.
rheya_kelvin 14th-Dec-2011 11:07 am (UTC)
Oh, and Godric!
breaktheice89 14th-Dec-2011 01:19 am (UTC)
Meh, not excited. Every year I want to stop watching this show but it begins right when all my other shows are on hiatus so I end up watching it anyway :/
angelmonster 14th-Dec-2011 01:23 am (UTC)
Me too, it feels like a chore but I can't quit it.
lauracoy 14th-Dec-2011 01:52 am (UTC)
Same. Not even seven minutes of Askars makes it worth it anymore.
