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.
In their pursuit of a gang of highly skilled bank robbers, two FBI agents uncover evidence that suggests the lethal heist is just one part of a far-reaching conspiracy with a surprising purpose.
