Chris Meloni Tells Heartbroken Gay “Oz” Fan To Fantasize About Him

Lock us up and throw away the key.

Our love for Chris Meloni is well-documented, so it’s always nice to see someone else profess their crush on the former Law and Order: SVU star.

“I finished Oz two days [ago] and I’m depressed about it,” tweeted the 18-year-old. “Especially with the end of your character… how [do I] handle [it]?

Meloni quickly replied, “Take a shower and pretend I’ll be joining you.”

On HBO’s acclaimed prison series, Meloni played sociopathic Chris Keller, who had a sexual relationship with fellow inmate Tobias Beeher (Lee Tergesen).
