True Blood: Some Law & Order May Be Heading to Bon Temps

We reported back in June that that actor Christopher Meloni, who recently left the NBC series, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit after almost 12 years, scored a “major role” in director Zack Snyder‘s forthcoming big screen Superman reboot Man of Steel.

Now, TVLine is reporting that Meloni is being courted for a “major role” as a “powerful vampire” – as opposed to? – in the upcoming season. If it’s up for a vote, we vote YES. Of all of the casting news we’ve seen for True Blood season 5, this is the one that has us most enthusiastic. Like Valentina Cervi and Lucy Griffiths, the two women who have been cast as season 5 vamps, he is gorgeous and will therefore fit right in. If we vote YES PLEASE would it help?

We will, as always, keep you posted.

True Blood returns with season 5 in 2012 on HBO.
