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.
When the police fail to apprehend his wife's killers, Stanley Hill turns vigilante to avenge her death -- a quest that leads him to uncover evidence of corruption within the ranks of the law and the halls of power.
