Law & Order: SVU's Christopher Meloni May Join Man of Steel

christophermeloni300.jpgThe casting blitz for Zack Snyder's Superman reboot Man of Steel keeps adding surprising but well-liked members to its cast (see Movieline's growing gallery here), with Deadline reporting that Law & Order: SVU's Emmy-nominated Christopher Meloni is negotiating for an unknown but "major" role in the pic.

Is this goatee-'stache number he was sporting this week a clue? Guess the role in the comments section!

UPDATE: Meloni told Vulture that he was going to play a general in the Zack Snyder-directed film. Do with that information what you will.

    SVU’s Christopher Meloni , hmmmm, if he has a "major role" in "The Man of Steel," I will wager that it is Jor-el, Kal-el's (Superman's) father..... played opposite Christopher Reeve's Superman by Marlon Brando.
    Meloni would make a lousy Lex Luthor or Pa Kent. As for the role of Editor in Chief, Perry White, he's not old or gruff enough for that part.
    Just my opinion.

  • Bess says:

    He must be Brainiac! Please let it be so! Zod and Luthor are blah. Early reports had Brainiac as the villain!

  • Pat says:

    Please let hot-ass Meloni be something, so that I have one reason to see this flick!

    He's probably playing the goonish Kryptonian villain right? The third one in the evil trio?
