It’s a reunion seven years in the making….

Lee Tergesen is reteaming with ex-Oz lover Chris Meloni in an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU, sources confirm to me exclusively.

Tergesen is playing a deranged religious zealot suspected of murder. An SVU insider says you can expect “lots of sweaty interrogation scenes between Meloni and Tergesen.” Just like old times!

This will mark the first time Meloni and Tergesen have worked together since Oz went off the air in 2003.
