Having rid himself of the daily grind of cleaning up after all that rape, Christopher Meloni is now free to indulge in more big-screen pursuits, like co-starring in Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel. The Superman reboot that has begun to rival The Hunger Games in its filling of even minor roles with well-known names has just hired Meloni to play some sort of general, according to what the actor told Vulture over the weekend, although any details beyond that are obviously still being kept secret. What we do know is that said “general” is not General Zod, as Michael Shannon was long ago confirmed for that, and that part of Meloni’s scenes will be shot at Edwards Air Force Base, suggesting he will be a good old American general, not the alien insurgent kind. It also suggests Meloni’s asking price for a Wet Hot American Summer sequel just went up.
