The holidays are a fun time for so many of us this holiday season. However, sometimes it can be a little hectic, especially for folks who have to travel a lot during this time of year. For those folks, traveling is less fun and more stressful. So, sometimes you have to make your own fun. This is what Law & Order: Organized Crime star Chris Meloni is doing this week. Yes, Chris Meloni took a hilarious airport selfie and shared it with his followers on his personal Instagram page this week.
It was a picture and his caption simply read, “Yes please.” Fans loved the selfie with one fan writing in the comments, “Wow! So hi tech looking!! Almost James Bond-ish!!” Another fan wrote, “Safe travels and have a great trip. Hopefully lots of sun !”
Chris Meloni Returns
Chris Meloni returning to Law & Order was a big deal. After years away from the NBC program, Meloni opened up with Men’s Health about his departure. He said, “My thought was: Instead of 22 episodes, bring me back for nine episodes, or bring me back for 18 episodes.” He continued, “They literally came to me on a Thursday night and said, ‘This is the deal. We want the answer by tomorrow. It’s our way or no way.’ ”
That sort of ultimatum did not sit well with Meloni. As you now know, he left the show and that was that. It just didn’t work out at the negotiation table.
Now he’s back on a new Dick Wolf program on NBC and said, “This time around with the Law & Order ride, I’m not stressed by: Will it go well? Will it not go well? Not that I know how it’s going to go,” he says of the show, which just got renewed for season 2. “Just that, eh, just ride. Just do, just be.”
He’s just having fun. It’s a different vibe now. He is just there to have fun and enjoy the ride.
Chris Meloni said, “There are bigger things, more important things. I know how important this is to me, but I have a clearer vision of life.” His perspective has changed. He continued, “I know a little more about love. I know a little more about real pain.” His experiences have changed him and changed his perspective on the shows.
He concluded, “I know about joy. I know better management skills. As you go through life, you get a clearer understanding of things, of your holes and of your gifts.” Now, he has more experience. He knows who he is as an actor and performer.
