I actually don’t watch True Blood, but if they were ever going to snag me as a viewer, adding Chris Meloni is one way to start.

The 50-year-old Law & Order: SVU alum will play “an ancient, powerful vampire who holds the fate of Bill and Eric in his hands,” True Blood executive producer Alan Ball told TVLine.

I have no idea what that means, but it sounds pretty cool!

I bet some people will have a tough time seeing Meloni as a vampire after he’s played such a hardcore detective on tv for so many years. But I bet few of you know about a particular cameo he had in Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle..

Watch this and you’ll see why he can pull off a vampire with ease (WARNING: very NSFW):



True Blood will return to HBO for a fifth season starting in the summer of 2012.
