Oh man, I'm actually pretty stoked if he's Lex.

F'ing Brillant! The guy would make a kick butt Lex , though he may also be Jax Ur who was rumored to be the other Phantom Zone villan . Either way the guy is a great actor and imposing.

A major role, huh? Gotta be Lex although I thought they were going for a huge name here. Only remember this guy from comedy. I guess we'll learn soon enough.
I'll check Meloni out in the mean time...

The role of Lex Luthor would be a great fit for him....

But that said- I'm still sad that he's leaving the character of Elliot Stabler (he's so great in SVU and made it what it is).

He's been on that show for too long. I've always felt that once you're a cast member if Law & Order, you'll get a steady income but your career will plateau.

Not to discount the work Mariska has done by any means....But Meloni has given that show the amazing sense of "weight" it has. He makes it intense, and is a button pusher with the other characters...

That whole cast is amazing, especially once Ice-T came aboard to round out the cast in 2000. Benson, Much, Fin, Capt. Cragen, Huang, Warner and the never ending revolving door of A.D.A.'s (Novak and Cabot are the best) have shaped that show to be the best of the franchise....

Meloni's Stabler is at the top of that cast. People who were looking for a "name", I don't think you can be disappointed at his casting (if he's Lex) as he has become one of the more respected actors out there through his 12 years as this character. He has INSTANT recognition (he is on A television at any given minute of any given day) and people KNOW his face if not his name. The man will stand a chance of disappearing into the role (but i worry he'll be seen as Stabler, but the same can be said of any "name").

Again, sad to see him leave (but at least we have the L&O: SVU Marathons on USA) but glad to see him possibly get this great, coveted role....a perfect first non Stabler role to break out to the silver screen.

If he is Lex, it does make you wonder what they are going for in Lex's character.

Meloni can come across as quite sinister in his roles.
