(On whether or not he's sick of talking about his Oz (1997) co-star, Lee Tergesen): "Talking about Lee is like eating a big fat chocolate sundae. I know it's bad for me, but I can't help myself. I catch myself doing it all the time, or dreaming about it. I'm trying to quit cause it's ruining my girlish figure and I can't fit into any of my clothes the way I used to...". See more »


Warner Brothers Animation had originally hoped to have Meloni reprise the role of the heroic Green Lantern Hal Jordan in Green Lantern: Emerald Knights (2011) after having played the part in Green Lantern: First Flight (2009) but Meloni was not available due to his Law & Order schedule. Nathan Fillion replaced him. See more »
