But it wasn't until Meloni took on the role of serial killer Chris Keller in HBO's prison drama "Oz" that the actor found lasting fame. He followed his "Oz" success with the lead (opposite Mariska Hargitay) on NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," a part that earned him a 2006 Emmy nomination for Best Actor in a Drama.
No stranger to the big screen, Meloni also appeared in director Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys (1995) and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998). In 1999, Meloni played Julia Roberts' sports-minded fiancé in Runaway Bride.
Life and love are complicated -- a lesson that aspiring comic-book artist Minnie Goetze learns at the age of 15 when she embarks on an affair with her mother's handsome boyfriend, Monroe Rutherford.
