Chris Meloni to star in Season 5 of HBO's True BloodWell, it’s official – Chris Meloni (who played Detective Elliot Stabler on Law & Order: SVU) will be joining the cast of True Blood for Season 5. Not only will he be a season regular, but he will be a vampire to boot! Alan Ball recently broke the news on TVline, saying that Meloni will play:

an ancient, powerful vampire who holds the fate of Bill and Eric in his hands.

Sounds intriguing, that’s for sure.  Chris has recently left the hit series, Law & Order: SVU due to a pay dispute. This has turned out to be a massive plus for HBO fans.
