Gov. Lamont Joins ‘Law & Order’ Star for Dinner in Woodbury
Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont and his buddy, Law & Order TV star Chris Meloni who has a home in Sherman, double-dated this past weekend at one of the best restaurants in Connecticut, Carole Peck's "Good News Café."
The Gov was with his wife, Ann, and Meloni's date was his wife, Sherman Williams, a production designer from Hollywood, as reported by Bridgeport's Daily Voice. It appeared to be just a fun night out. Lamont posted on Facebook, "Enjoyed a fun meal last night at Good News with Sherman and Chris. We talked Law and Order and then some!"
When Lamont was sworn in as Governor in January of 2019, according to the Hartford Courant, Chris Meloni and political commentator Joe Scarborough were in attendance at his inauguration and the inaugural ball later that evening.
We know what's up with the Governor, but what about Mr. Meloni? Chris has resurrected his role as Elliot Stabler after leaving Law & Order: SVU in 2011. Meloni's new series titled Law & Order: Organized Crime, where he brings back his Elliot Stabler character just finished its first season on NBC. Season Two will debut this fall.
Meloni's co-star in Law & Order: SVU, Mariska Hargitay, was devastated when Meloni decided to leave the series after 12 seasons, according to variety.com. However, Hargitay said it was all about their on-air chemistry. They were back together in the first episode of Meloni's Organized Crime, series and it was like Elliot Stabler never left.
