(Can't wait for the arc about Y2K anxiety.)
He may act like a tough dad and sound like a tough dad, but Surviving Jack star Christopher Meloni wants to make it very clear: his character's bark is far worse than his bite.
"Jack is never mean. He's not a mean-spirited guy," Meloni tells TVGuide.com of his new TV alter ego, husband and strict father of two Jack Dunlevy. "Everyone's antenna is ...
