Christopher Meloni Leaving SVU?


Apparently Christopher Meloni has broken off contract talks with the producers of SVU and says he will not be back for next season. Umm, yeah. Do you really think the producers will let Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni walk for next season? Mariska is under contract for next season, but has already said she cannot work a full schedule because of her new baby. So, that is where the Jennifer Love Hewitt rumors came from. I think that would be awful. Anyway, so there is no way Christopher is going to not get exactly what he wants, it is just going to take a bit of work to get it done. I don't think Dick Wolf is out there looking for replacements. I think Dick Wolf is on an island somewhere counting all his money and wondering if he can have a show on 24 hours a day 7 days a week. He is coming pretty close. I guess they could just have Ice-T and his new side kick Coco on the show.

Boo....Meloni is awesome on that show. Ice-T, on the other hand, is simply terrible. He should thank his lucky stars he got that gig.

SVU starring Jennifer Love Hewett ... and her breasts!

I'm a BIG fan of the show.
Hargitay and Meloni are the core, however it is an ensemble cast.
Do I think he's going to get what he wants? No doubt in my mind.
Would the show benefit from rotating the focus to the other characters?
Without a doubt.
But will I still watch it, with or without Meloni?
You bet your ass.

Didn't he announce this last year?

delilah said...

i am jumping ship if Meloni is out-he's a hot piece for sure!
and bring back BD Wong!

Ice-T and Coco would be better than JLH; she's a ninny, and a lazy actress. Also I find it offensive that Wolf would even consider bringing in yet another Hollywood clone when there are so many wonderful NY actors aching for a chance.

I hope that Chris comes back. I agree that him and Marissa are SVU. I don't mind Ice-T and Belzer - they can be pretty funny sometimes, but the core are Chris and Marissa. And yes - bring back BD too!

I only watched SVU for Belzer. When he turned into a background prop, I switched channels. I don't care now.

They will pay Chris whatever they need to because the show is all about him and Mariska. I do like the supporting characters as well.

I love SVU Christopher and Mariska are the show.

Tempestuous Grape said...

I will never understand the love, but I've never seen the show so I am shutting up!

Hello, shark? You've been summoned. Law & Order has decided that it's officially time to jump you.

Mango said...

I'm actually a little weary of Eliot's clenched jaw and Olivia's swagger.

@ RQ - I'm not an Ice T fan but I think he's great on this show and totally believable. Also love Belzer and BD Wong.

Wil said...

Gotta say I like Ice T, too. He and Belz are great together. As I floated last night at Dlisted, they could bring back Dean Winters as Brian Cassidy and I would watch. Sucks it is changing, but I will give it a chance for Belz and Ice ... And Dann, too!

Melonhead, meet Mr. Caruso. I think there are many more options for a replacement, like Jesse L. Martin ooh la!

trashtalker said...

I feel like Belzer hasn't been on the show in a while. Is it just me spacing out, or has he not been on?

JLH just did a big guest-spot last fall as a victim. Kinda dumb to consider bringing her back as a cop now. Because of that and because she stinks.

I hope Benson and Stabler can have one more season together.

Oh, I know -- they can bring in Damian Lewis (from Life)!

Jeri said...

Wish they could bring back the original L&O and cancel SVU. SVU used to be my fav but they jumped the shark too many times and Mariskas botox doesn't help the acting any.

Maybe they'll get Coco instead of JLH.

I'd quit too if I had to work with Jennifer Love HugeTwit.
