If you thought True Blood was incapable of getting any sexier, you may have counted your vamps before they bite.
Following his recent departure from Law & Order: SVU, our favorite dilf, Chris Meloni, is currently negotiating with HBO for a key role in the supernatural series.
If Meloni does secure the gig, it’s rumored that he’ll play the part of an “incredibly powerful vampire.” It may be seem like an odd fit for fans who’ve come to know and love him as Elliot Stabler, but some of us know better.
From 1998 – 2003, the D.C. native played bisexual sociopath Chris Keller on HBO’s prison drama, Oz. Convicted of felony murder (among other things), Keller was cunning, seductive, and crazy dangerous.
With sex and strength serving as his fiercest weapons, Keller’s brand of sociopathy echoed core vampire traits.
Given his scene-stealing portrayal of a convict so sexually beguiling he made a long-time nun consider leaving the convent, we’re beyond thrilled by the prospect of seeing Meloni revisit his darker side — especially after playing the part of comparatively flat New York City detective.
With one incredibly sexy, incredibly powerful vampire already in tow, the only thing left to wonder is whether viewers are prepared to handle two. Where there’s a will, there’s always a way.Tags: Chris Meloni, chris meloni true blood, Christopher Meloni, christopher meloni true blood, Eric Northman, HBO, HBO series, incredibly powerful vampire, law and order special victims unit, law and order: svu, oz, sexy, television, True Blood, true blood 5th season, true blood chris meloni, true blood christopher meloni, true blood fifth season, true blood season 5, tv
