NIGHTS IN RODANTHE

CHRISTOPHER MELONI (Jack) earned an Emmy Award nomination for his role as compassionate detective Elliot Stabler in NBC's Top 10-rated "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” and is currently starring in the series' tenth season.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, Meloni also portrayed duplicitous inmate Chris Keller on HBO's intense prison drama "Oz,” created by Tom Fontana. His additional work in television includes guest appearances on "NYPD Blue,” "Homicide: Life on the Street” and "Scrubs.” He also starred in the series "Leaving L.A.” and in several miniseries, including "In a Child's Name,” Mario Puzo's "The Last Don” and, most recently, the telefilm "Gym Teacher: The Movie,” for Nickelodeon.

Meloni appeared in the hit comedy "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle” and more recently in its sequel, "Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay.” He will soon appear in the film "Brief Interviews with Hideous Men,” starring Julianne Nicholson, Timothy Hutton and Bobby Cannavale, written and directed by John Krasinski. Meloni will also be seen in the Pastor brothers' feature "Carriers,” an apocalyptic thriller about a dangerous viral pandemic, with Piper Perabo and Chris Pine, and the ribald comedy "National Lampoon's Dirty Movie,” which he also directed and produced.

Previously, Meloni earned accolades for his performance as a temperamental chef working at a summer camp in the hilarious independent film "Wet Hot American Summer,” opposite Janeane Garafolo and David Hyde Pierce. His other film credits include "Runaway Bride,” in which he starred opposite Julia Roberts as her sports enthusiast fiancé, as well as "Twelve Monkeys,” "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” "Junior” and "Bound.”

He received critical praise for his work on the stage in 2005, when he starred as Eddie Carbone in Arthur Miller's "A View From the Bridge” at Dublin's prestigious Gate Theatre, for which he was honored as Best Actor in Ireland's highest theater awards from the Irish Times.

A native of Washington, D.C., Meloni attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he first became interested in acting. After graduation, he took a construction job in his hometown until a high school acquaintance inspired him to move to New York to study acting. It was there that he apprenticed at the Neighborhood Playhouse and got his first big break as the lead in the NBC comedy "The Fanelli Boys.”
