It’s a triple treat for fans on Law & Order: SVU, Christopher Meloni and Sin City! I was excited when I saw Meloni in season 5 of True Blood and devastated that he couldn’t hang around. I can hardly contain my excitement. Here’s the casting news from Deadline.




Deadline’s Mike Flemming JR. reports Chris Meloni In ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ , on January 8th, 2013:

EXCLUSIVE: Add Law & Order: SVU alum Christopher Meloni to the cast of tough guys lined up for the Frank Miller/Robert Rodriguez-directed Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Meloni has landed a lead role in the film. He’ll be playing a cop, which might seem like stereotyping. But in the original Sin City, cops were the most hard-edged disreputable characters in the film.

So while Meloni might seem like the prototypical honest cop from his TV series run, if you’ve seen any of his work in the HBO series Oz, you’ll know he can play one frighteningly imposing dude capable of anything. Dimension Films is already in production on the film, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Dennis Haysbert and Jamie Chung, so far. I’ve heard whispers Josh Brolin is being courted and there are several others from the original cast who’d be welcomed back, but Meloni is for sure joining the mix.



Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is taken from a graphic novel by Frank Miller and will be directed by Miller and Robert Rodriguez and distributed by Dimension Films. Among other rumored stars are Jessica Alba and Michael Madsen. The initial release date for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is set for October 4th, 2013.
