Stabler wasn’t out of work for long.

Christopher Meloni, who just left “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” after 12 seasons on the highly successful spinoff, is moving from the small screen to the silver screen, as he joins Zack Snyder’s hotly anticipated “Superman” reboot.

Meloni, 50, said he will play a General in “Man of Steel” but did not discuss details, New York Magazine blogged.

“I can’t tell you, or I’d have to kill you,” Meloni told New York Magazine’s Vulture blog.

Meloni will not play Lex Luthor as had been rumored.

British actor Henry Cavill is playing the lead role of Clark Kent/Superman, Amy Adams is set to play Lois Lane, and Diane Lane and Kevin Costner play Mr. and Mrs. Kent. Russell Crowe may be about to sign on to play Jor-El, Superman’s Kryptonian father.
