Actor Christopher Meloni is known for many things: playing Det. Elliot Stabler in the television series Law and Order: SVU; as scary Chris Keller in the HBO series Oz; as Julia Roberts’ jilted groom in the movie Runaway Bride; and for his steely blue eyes—but he’d like you to know he discovered flying just before his fiftieth birthday and is, in his words, obsessed.
“An actor/aviation friend introduced me to the world of flight, which I had no idea existed!” he says.
WGN America is going straight-to-series with Underground, tapping Christopher Meloni to star in the slave drama.
The L.A.-based cable network first announced it was developing Underground in August, when it went straight to series with Outsiders, its Appalachia-set 13-episode series.
From creator Misha Green (Sons of Anarchy) and Joe Pokaski (Heroes), the Sony Pictures Television and Tribune Studios entry follows the slaves who set foot on the fabled Underground Railroad, the secret network of men and women who risked their lives aiding them and the mercenaries tasked with hunting them down at any cost.
Chris Meloni is best known for playing the role of Detective Elliot Stabler on Law & Order: SVU for 12 seasons and having the "Best Butt in Primetime," has a message for Taylor Swift.
The "Shake It Off" singer recently introduced her cat, Olivia Benson, to the world. We broke that news to Meloni who was on hand to help launch Duracell's new Power Fleet disaster relief program. "She should get a pitbull and name it Elliot," he told us. We can just picture T. Swift frolicking around New York with her pit bull Elliot Stabler and kitty Olivia Benson in tow!
During a recent round of press, his former costar Mariska Hargitay said she's been trying to get him back on the show. How so?
"She sleeps outside of my apartment. It's really distracting," he joked.
Not only does Chris Meloni have the "Best Ass in Primetime," but he also has an attention-grabbing crotch...well, at least to the dog.
The former Law & Order: SVU star shared a hilarious photo of the family pup staring at Meloni's junk (basically doing what a lot of us wish we could do without being creepy) on his Facebook page. He captioned the funny pic, "I will stare at your genitalia until u feed me.... #dogpsychology."
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.
