After serving for thirteen years as Det. Elliot Stabler, the strapping actor has transitioned into film. Meloni sat down with Marlow Stern over coffee to discuss the end of SVU and his next chapter.
Christopher Meloni is a bit frazzled. When I meet him at cantina-like coffee shop downtown, he enters wearing a button-down shirt that looks like an optical illusion—a panoply of multi-colored lines whose rolled-up sleeves reveal an interior design of neon puzzle pieces.
When you stop to get an ice-cold mojito with Christopher Meloni and sit in the window of Greenwich Village hotspot Horchata, people take notice. "I loved you in Harold and Kumar!" shouts one passerby on a skateboard before the Law & Order star has even swallowed his first mint leaf.
And though the 53-year-old is ridiculously funny — he possesses the kind of deadpan humor that gets better with every prolonged silence — women keep tripping over the locale's sidewalk chalkboard, trying to get a second look.
Surviving Jack received pretty decent reviews, and Surviving Jack gets credit for showing us how good a comedy actor Chris Meloni is.
But the show was mired by dismal ratings. The show wasn't given a fair shake by being slotted outside of Fox’s Tuesday comedy block.
Surviving Jack ran behind an anemic American Idol — which, even in its heyday, has not been able to successfully launch a comedy series.
Conan O'Brien has gotten to the bottom of this "Best Ass in Primetime" boast Christopher Meloni has been on!
The comedian mentioned Meloni's television wife, Rachael Harris spending half of her segment time talking about his butt and how it's the best male rear end she'd ever seen.
We can't blame her—have you seen that backside?
After all, the Surviving Jack actor has often showed fans his award-winning behind on Twitter.
The star of everything from Harold & Kumar to Law & Order: SVU to Man of Steel to Small Time, Christopher Meloni is one of the most versatile and under-appreciated actors in Hollywood today. The always distinctive Meloni is the essence of a journeyman actor, adding color and dimensionality to characters while maximizing their impact on the story. And in Small Time, the chameleon plays a used car salesman, quite possibly one of the most likable ever put on film, who struggles to come to terms with the vagaries of his profession after his son decides he wants to work alongside dad.
