Christopher Meloni has hinted at his new role on True Blood.The former Law & Order: SVU star will play Roman - the 500-year-old head of the Vampire Authority - in the HBO drama's fifth season.
"Roman's determined," Meloni told TV Guide. "He wants peace, but others have been trying to stomp out his path. Think [Barack] Obama with very long incisors."The actor added that Roman is somewhat similar to his SVU character Elliot Stabler.
"Elliot was free-form [and] Roman's more thoughtful, yet unafraid to pull the trigger," he explained. "He's a man of action. Get the facts, get it done. "But they both have a certainty of their view. They both think they're right."
It was recently announced that Nurse Jackie exec Mark Hudis will replace True Blood creator Alan Ball as showrunner.
The new season will premiere on Sunday, June 10 at 9/8c on HBO. In the UK, True Blood airs on FX UK.
克里斯托弗•米洛尼（Christopher Meloni）曾对人谈起他在《真爱如血》（True Blood）中的新角色。这位曾参演过《法律与秩序：特殊受害者》（Law & Order: SVU）的男演员将在《真爱如血》第五季中饰演罗曼（暂译，Roman），一位500岁的吸血鬼当权者首领。
“罗曼是一个坚决的人，”米洛尼告诉TV Guide。“他想要和平，但其他人却一直试图退出他的路线。想象一下，他就好像是长着尖牙的贝拉克•奥巴马。”他补充道，罗曼也有几分像他在《法律与秩序：特殊受害者》中饰演的艾略特•斯特布勒（Elliot Stabler）。
根据近日公布的消息，《护士当家》（Nurse Jackie）的执行制片人马克•胡迪斯（Mark Hudis）将取代《真爱如血》的创作人艾伦•鲍尔（Alan Ball）成为《真爱如血》新的运作人。
