Christopher Meloni may join 'True Blood' next season



tbd-chrismeloni120111.jpgIf Law & Order: SVU just isn't the same for you since Chris Meloni left, take heart: He's being courted to join True Blood for a big part. Even bigger than playing sociopath Chris Keller on Oz?

While Meloni is working on The Man of Steel in a role that hasn't been revealed,'s Michael Ausiello says the actor will be playing "an incredibly powerful vampire" in the show's fifth season. As opposed to all the wimpy vampires on that show, natch.

HBO isn't talking, but Ausiello's pretty good about this sort of thing. Now it only remains to be seen whether the network can get the deal done. Meloni is nothing if not capable of playing sinister.
