According to executive producer Alan Ball, Meloni will be playing
“an ancient powerful vampire who holds the fate of Bill [Stephen Moyer] and Eric [Alexander Skarsgard] in his hands.”
This will be quite a departure from Meloni’s role as Special Victims Unit detective Elliot Stabler, playing a supernatural being like that. However, this is not Chris‘ first run with HBO. He also played Chris Keller for five years in Oz, HBO’s prison drama.
Vampires won’t be the only non-human character Meloni will be starring as. He will also be playing another supernatural being on the big screen in Man of Steel, Zach Snyder’s Superman reboot scheduled for release in the summer of 2013.
This is good news. True Blood can never have enough sexy vampires!
