True Blood Spoiler News: Season 2 Episode 4

January 27, 2009

billsookietogetherMore spoiler news came out today from Spoiler TV regarding Alan Ball’s successful HBO TV series “True Blood”.  Word has come out that Episode 4 of “True Blood” will be entitled “Let’s Take A Trip Together”.  In this episode Jason becomes a soldier for the Fellowship of the Sun church but soon realizes there are strings attached.  WhileBill, Sookie and Jessica are in Dallas, Sookie finds out that she is not the only person who can read minds.  For people who have read Book 2, you probably have a very good idea as to who they are referring to.

In addition to the information regarding the plot for episode 4, more casting calls have been sent out.  The following characters are required for upcoming episodes in Season 2. 

A DRIVER
This character is approximately 30 to 45 who seems to be quite aggressive and has been sent by Fellowship of the Sun to kidnap Sookie when she arrives at the airport. However, Bill and Jessica are able to intervene and glamor the driver causing him to experience  a wide range of emotions and outbursts, from fear, to relief, to embarrassment as Bill and Jessica control his will and his behavior. Eventually he is released and returns to his superiors and tell them that Sookie “never showed up” (which is what he now believes).

A DESK CLERK
This character is a sleek, female, European desk clerk at a Texas hotel who gets a room ready for Sookie, Jessica and Bill according to their needs.

A BELLBOY / BARRY
This character is a  uniformed, 19-year-old bellboy at a Texas hotel who sends Sookie and Jessica room service (a handsome guy to feed off of). Sookie is surprised to realize that Barry the Bellboy, can read her mind and he becomes more freaked out as they communicate silently.

A CHAUFFEUR
This character man approximately 50ish who is very handsome, well-groomed and surprisingly country and he  picks up Jessica and Bill’s travel coffins to take to the airport.

A YOUNG MAN / TRAVIS
This character is a 21 years old male who is very handsome and dressed in a hotel bathrobe who comes to Jessica as her polite, barely legal “room service” meal (B negative blood).

Rutina Wesley Interviewed by KING-MAG.com

January 27, 2009

HBO Post Emmy reception PartyKING-MAG.com had the opportunity to interview Rutina Wesley who plays Tara Thornton, Sookie Stackhouse’s best friend on Alan Ball’s successful HBO TV series “True Blood”. Rutina explained to KING-MAG that what attracted her to take the part in “True Blood” was the opportunity to work with Alan Ball. She stated that once she read the script she knew she could play the role of Tara Thornton because she understood the character and what she was going through and as a result she could related to her. She stated that she was nervous at the beginning of the show because of its graphic nature, however she states that she would not remove her clothes unless it is absolutely necessary. In regards to some people’s criticisms that her portrayal of African Americans may be stereotypical she states:

“I’m trying to make sure I always play a human being with a range of emotions, not this screaming robot. It’s funny—there are people who think I’m hilarious on the show and people who are offended, both black and white. They’re like, “I don’t talk like that. She’s ghetto.” I love hearing the differences, because there are people exactly like Tara—don’t lie and tell me there aren’t.”

She further explains that although Lafayette is a drug dealer in the show, Alan Ball has done “a great job of creating real-life characters that aren’t these stock ones we’ve seen in the past.”
