Christopher Meloni at the 42 premiere: would you hit it?

Christopher Meloni is 52 years old and he looks damn good. I honestly thought he was about 45, tops, and that’s only because I know him from TV. If I saw him walking around looking anonymous and fine (a fantasy is forming in my mind), I would guess he was around 40. His hairline doesn’t bother me because I have a well-documented thing for guys with little to no hair. (I’ve had that preference for over 20 years. Someone once told me that balding guys have more testosterone, so maybe that’s part of it, but I just read part of Wikipedia’s entry on baldness and it’s probably a myth that bald guys are more virile, still it’s one I wholeheartedly believe.)

Meloni looks better with a little facial hair, though, like in this appearance back in November. Man I am having a good morning.

Meloni is one of the stars of 42, about the life of baseball great Jackie Robinson, out this Friday. These are photos from the premiere. Robinson of course became the first African American baseball player in the major leagues when he was signed to the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. Meloni plays a colorful character called Leo Durocher who was the “player-manager” of the Dodgers, which I guess they don’t do much in baseball anymore. His most famous quote is shown in the trailer for the film, and it’s more awesome than they’re able to portray for a general audience. He said to the players “I do not care if the guy is yellow or black, or if he has stripes like a f*kin’ zebra. I’m the manager of this team, and I say he plays. What’s more, I say he can make us all rich. And if any of you cannot use the money, I will see that you are all traded.

I’m covering this partially because I saw this touching photo, over on ET Online, of actor Chadwick Boseman (above) who plays Robinson, hugging Robinson’s widow, Rachel Robinson. It looks like the lady is crying, although you can’t see her face, and the effect is heart warming. All the other photos we have of Mrs. Robinson (did you get that song stuck in your head? I did) have her smiling though, which is nice to see. She’s 90 years old! Here’s more on this incredible lady.

Star Chadwick Boseman, looking fine. He’s at least 30 (Wiki says he was born in ’82, but they don’t have the date) so I don’t feel like a perv for thinking he’s hot. Boseman told Global Grind that this movie is the first time he’s seen “two black people in love in a major motion picture.” He added “You think you have, but you’ve only seen Denzel have a wife, but never a love story. You’ve seen Will Smith have a wife that’s tacked onto the story, but it’s not a love story.” That’s sad. He did mention Claudine and Love Jones as exceptions, but emphasized that they were not heavily promoted. Nicole Beharie plays Mrs. Robinson (so here’s to you) but she wasn’t at the premiere. Kaiser reminded me that Nicole broke off a piece of Fassbender for a while, but the fassdong cannot be contained.

Also there we have Calista Flockhart, who was supporting her husband, Harrison Ford. Ford plays Branch Rickey, the general manager of The Dodgers who signed Robinson. I’m not a fan of Calista’s piecey, choppy hair, but I do love that shiny blue a-line cap sleeve dress. That is killer. (I don’t have a designer ID on it but I’m guessing it’s Monique Lhuillier.) Those shoes are too chunky IMO though.

And finally Alyssa Milano in a really tight dress.

Here’s the trailer for 42, it looks really good!

    side note, calista and alyssa seem to be aging well and NATURALLY, might i add.

  2. brin says:

    Oh yeah! Love Stabler!
    Can’t wait to see this movie it was filmed near where I live (in Chattanooga).

  3. Sherry says:

    (If I wasn’t married) Every day and in every way! In my mind, Christopher Meloni and I have had sex many, many times. My husband says I’m a mind-ho, but fortunately, he doesn’t care!

  4. truthful says:

    would I hit it??

    heck YEAH!!!!, I’ve had a lil thing for him for quite a while.

    he’s got that quiet dab of sexiness, he’s real low key with it.

  5. CG says:

    I love baseball so I can’t wait to see this movie. And I would hit every one of those guys, even million-year-old Harrison Ford! :)

  6. logan says:

    YESSSSSSsssssssssssssssssss and yes.

  7. Dawn says:

    In a word YES. In the real world 52 seldom looks that good.

  8. Lisa says:

    Hell yes on Meloni. Also looking forward to the movie.

  9. V4Real says:

    I have loved this man since his OZ days. He is a nice guy. I met him twice and both times he actually took the time to hold a conversation with me and my friends. Yes I would still hit it.

  10. marie says:

    if he didn’t talk then yes I would, but the second he opens his mouth I’ve lost the feeling. Boseman’s looking pretty HOT though..

    I had forgotten Flockhart and Ford actually married.

    As for his comment about the movies, what about Poetic Justice? I liked that movie.

  11. Samigirl says:

    Geeeeze Lawd, I’ve had a thing for Meloni for some time. I watch the full Oz series once a year, bc he’s so damn GOOD in the role of Keller. He also has, hands down, the best ass I’ve ever seen. I just want to bite it.

  12. dina says:

    I wasn’t familiar with him until I saw him on True Blood, and HOT DAMN. In loveeeee.

  13. Az says:

    He isnumber one on my freebie five. So yes, I would definitely hit that. I would bang that harder than a screen door in a hurricane. All day. And twice on Sundays. Yum.

  14. Rhiley says:

    I was kind of surprised when I read that he is married to a woman and has children. When I lived in SF way back in the late 90s, I could have sworn that he was on the over of Out Magazine dressed in a lot of leather and feathers talking about being a gay man in Hollywood. Guess I have him confused with someone else. Though a few weeks ago there was a blind item about a tv actor celebrating his 9th anniversary with his secret boyfriend. I immidiately thought it was Christopher Maloni. Gay or straight, he is gorg.

  15. MJ says:

    Rachel Robinson is so beautiful! Most women should be so lucky as to look that great at 70!

  16. bluhare says:

    I would hit Christopher Meloni all day long.

    And the photos of FLOTUS and Mrs. Robinson(which is also the name of FLOTUS’ mom) were great.

  17. diva says:

    Most men look better with some facial hair. Yes to Chris! He’ll always be detective stabler to me =) this movie looks good. I hope people go out and support it.

  18. andrea says:

    Meloni’s gruff, manly hot. SVU’s not the same without him, but he did make a sexy vamp and it’s great to see his film career taking off.

  19. Reece says:

    Nope! No no no NO! Looks too much like the sperm donor that helped the female parental unit along in the manufacturing of me. *gag*

    Calista’s shoes don’t bother me. Maybe I would have liked them shinier but it’s not her night.

  20. says:

    Hell yes, I would.

    Someone get Calista some Visine.

  21. I Choose Me says:

    Oh my, that pic with the beard has my biscuits all a-tingle. This man has been on my list since his OZ days. So yeah, I would hit till the cows came home then hit it again.

  22. Emily says:

    I am an avid SVU watcher.. oh I love that man!
    I think with that goatee-styled facial hair, he looks a bit seedy…

  23. Kristine says:

    Nooooooooooo. It would be like f’ing my dad. Nooo no no.

  24. JosieJ says:

    YES! I love this guy. I would definitely hit it.

  25. joy says:

    Absolutely! Absolutely! Absolutely! LOVE him!!!

  26. janie says:

    Absolutely! I’ve loved him forever!

  27. moon says:

    Ehhhhhh neither yes or no. I won’t go out of my way to get it, but I wouldn’t say no if it was offered up either. I’m guessing he looks better than he photographs though. Something about him subtly shouts out ‘kinky and good in bed’.

  28. NEENAZEE says:

    Yep, Chris Meloni has an amazing body and a quiet confident presence that I really like. I, too, can appreciate a balding man… but ironically all my exes have full heads of thick, healthy hair.
    Jackie’s widow is beautiful… we should all aspire to look as content and polished as she does… now and in the future.
    And Alyssa… was she invited b/c she’s banged most of major league baseball?

  29. Maggie says:

    More than 10 times a day I would. He has such a beautiful bubble butt.

  30. SamiHami says:

    Meloni looks like a real manly man…nothing metrosexual about him. In other words God YES!

    Ford looks better than he has in a while. Has he had some work done recently? If so, it doesn’t seem overdone. His face just doesn’t seem quite so saggy in these pics.

  31. Amanda_SB says:

    Absolutely. 100%. Yes, yes, yes!!!

    (I agree. SVU just isn’t the same w/o him, but I’m happy he’s doing well. Oh, and the movie looks good, too!).

  32. bcgirl says:

    what’s up with Flockheart’s eyes? Yikers…

  33. MademoiselleRose says:

    I was pleasantly surprised most are saying yes to hitting Christopher Meloni. He’s been my guilty little secret crush for years. He’s got a hot bod and there’s just something about him, manly but in a quiet way. He’s aging very well, he could easily pass for 10 years younger

  34. danni says:

    he is one of my favorite character on tv.
    directive staibler!!!

  35. mommak918 says:

    Little late to the game…but YES. I have missed Stabler! Id neveeeeer guess he’s 52. Wow.
