Sadly, we won't get any more hot and heavy scenes in the interrogation room, but fans will get the chance to drool over Meloni's sexiness on the small screen—with a new thirst for blood.

E! News confirms that the actor has been signed on as a regular on True Blood.

Rumors of this connection started last month when TVline.com reported that the hit drama was pulling to get Meloni as part of their cast. And now after weeks of negotiation, it's finally official.

Executive producer Alan Ball tells TV Line that the former detective's character will be, "An ancient, powerful vampire who holds the fate of Bill and Eric in his hands."

And the plot thickens!
