Christopher Meloni: He Actually Works!

Actor Christopher Meloni usually stars in projects — such as Oz and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit — that his children, Sophia Eva, 7, and Dante Amadeo, 4 ½, are not allowed to watch. That’s the main reason that he wanted to star in Gym Teacher, a Nickelodeon Original Movie that his kids liked because of the "physical comedy stuff." Chris jokes,

"That’s why I took the job, to prove to them that I actually work for a living."

Gym Teacher premieres tonight at 8 p.m. on Nickelodeon.

I haven’t seen it yet but I did record it. Nick. will be reshowing it so be sure to check your listings!

What an amazing picture of him! Gosh I love him- he has such an beautiful smile, it makes me smile. Lovely blue eyes, he’s so yummy. His kids are adorable too! He was talking about them for a bit on Regis and Kelly, about their trip to Rome, Italy over the summer.

Can’t wait for SVU to return!
