When Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay told the media recently that her former co-star Chris Meloni should return to the show as her character’s “baby daddy,” Meloni tweeted that “he’d be up for it.” But this week, when Access Hollywood bumped into Meloni at the premiere of his new thriller White Bird in a Blizzard in LA, he said “I think the ship has sailed.” WTF?!
Turns out Meloni was just joking about being up for coming back. He said, “I try to joke about it, but obviously I can’t.” SVU fans are too passionate for the tease. That’s a low blow, Meloni. We understand you’re going after the leading male roles on the big screen, but don’t burn any bridges. People who watch SVU also go to the movies every once in a while.
