Former Law and Order: Special Victims Unit star Christopher Meloni may be joining the cast of True Blood.
Meloni, who is currently filming Man of Steel, is reportedly being courted by executives from HBO’s hit series to play the role of an unnamed but incredibly powerful vampire in the upcoming fifth season.
HBO representatives refused to comment on the possibility of Meloni joining the cast.
True Blood sports a cast that seems to grow with each season. If the rumors are true, Christopher Meloni would be joining Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell, Rutina Wesley, Ryan Kwanten, Alexander Skarsgard, Kristin Bauer and about fifty other people who spend most of their time naked.
Which is another point in favor of Christopher Meloni joining the cast, as anyone who watched him on HBO’s Oz knows he has absolutely no problem flashing his assets.
In addition to his roles on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and Oz, Meloni has been in films including Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, Gym Teacher: The Movie, Runaway Bride, Twelve Monkeys and Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.
