Chris Meloni may join next season of TRUE BLOOD?

Word is Chris Meloni, formerly of Law & Order: SVU may be joining True Blood.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the former Law & Order: SVU front man is circling what my sources are calling a “major role” in the show’s upcoming fifth season.

If a deal comes to pass, this would be a major casting coup for True Blood. It would also mark a high-profile return to the small screen for Meloni following his sudden departure from SVU last spring.
