Christopher Meloni has traded in his badge and gun for a set of fangs and one scary-looking stake.
The Law & Order: SVU alum makes his True Blood debut Sunday as the stoic, yet vicious Vampire Authority guardian Roman. The Authority already has its hands full with the threat of a civil war, so the betrayal of one of their own — Nora (Lucy Griffiths) had unsuccessfully tried to help Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) escape the council's clutches — will not make Roman a pleasant vampire to be around. Still, there may be a way for Eric and Bill to survive... but what Roman wants from them in return won't be easy.
