True Blood’s Episode 3: Title Reveal and Casting Call

January 31, 2013

News is Arriving Daily about Season 6 of HBO’s True Blood:

Cast of Season 6 of HBO's True BloodThe title of Episode 3, Season 6 of True Blood has been announced by SpoilerTV. It is entitled Rock Hard Times. They have also announced a casting call for a guest star role and several co-star roles.

The guest role calls for a 50 year old female who goes by the name of Beverley Hutt. It turns out she is a friend of Sookie’s (Anna Paquin) and Jason Stackhouse’s (Ryan Kwanten) parents. I wonder if Beverley knows Warlow?

The other co-starring roles call for a younger version of Beverley Hutt (as seen through a flashback),   four mischievous fairies (also part of a flashback), a middle-aged hospital nurse, an eight year old version of Sookie (how cool would that role be?!) and, finally, two Caddo Parish sheriff deputies.

So do you think you have what HBO needs? How do you think these roles will affect the main characters in Season 6 of True Blood? Let us know in the comments below.

True Blood Season 6 Spoilers: Episode Names, Cast Calls and Celebrity Hints

January 20, 2013

Joe Manganiello and Mark Hudis Hint at Season 6:

Cast of HBO's hit vampire show, True BloodWhile new episode names for HBO’s epic vampire show, True Blood, are being announced, there is also a flurry of activity as the cast and crew go back to work. While fans speculate over whether Season 6 of True Blood will premier in early June, there is plenty of solid news in relation to Season 6.

Firstly, plenty of news sources have released the titles for episodes 1 and 2. SpoilerTV have announced that Episode 1 will be titled ‘Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood’ and Episode 2 is called ‘Here Comes the Sun’. HollywoodHills.com have also reported a role call for several characters. Firstly, they are after someone to play Niall’s (Rutger Hauer) mother and the scenes involving her will date all the way back to 3500 B.C.! A younger version of Niall will also be needed for these scenes. There is also a call for a guest role. Veronica is a prostitute makes money by letting vampires feed off her. Since it’s a guest role, I am guessing things end badly for her.

Joe Manganiello will be getting a haircut (after starring in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s upcoming movie, Ten) to maintain his role of Alcide Herveaux. On his role in Season 6 of True Blood, he told Access Hollywood at HBO’s Golden Globes after-party:

“[It’s] racier,” he said. “My character’s taken over the wolf pack, so as an alpha, and a pack of dogs, you gotta regulate, you gotta set it straight with everybody so there’s some violence. It’ll be fun. This is Season 6 and the first couple scripts I read – I think they’re doing a lot of stuff that they maybe held back on the past couple years.They’re pretty wild. I think it’s going to be a pretty wild season.”

He also hopes that the temperatures raise  a little in Southern California before shooting starts. This suggests there will be a further lack of clothes for Alcide in Season 6.

Over at WetPaint.com, there is news from the new co-executive Mark Hudis, who is replacing Alan Ball. Hudis has plenty to tell Haverford College’s alumni magazine about Season 6 of True Blood:

“Certainly [Bill] is not going to be the Bill we know and love. He’s going to have more bite, no pun intended.”

He also went on to say that Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) will spend most of Season 6 looking for Harlow, the vampire Sookie has apparently been promised to. Mark also wants to keep the storyline central to Bon Temps.

HBO’s True Blood Casting Two New Characters for Season 6:

January 17, 2013

Spoilery Details Can Be Found In New Character Descriptions

True Blood LogoSeason 6 of the HBO series True Blood has begun filming the ten episodes that will air this summer. While no start date has been announced, it’s rumored June is a safe bet. New show-runner Mark Hudis announced the production is casting two new characters as series regulars. It’s possible that dedicated fans can read between the lines of the descriptions to glean hints and spoilers of what’s to come in Season 6.

The first of the two characters lands on the evil side of things. Crooked politician, Creighton Burrell, has no love for vampires. Burrell’s wife abandoned him and their daughter when she ran off with a vampire. As the Governor of Louisiana, Burrell often lets his personal ambitions overpower his humanity.

The second of the new characters is ‘do-gooder’ Nicole Jannsen. Nicole is a key member of group of well-meaning activists. Nicole herself has no concerns for money and worries only about doing the right thing.

“When the show returns, we’ll be introduced to a cockeyed optimist named Nicole Jannsen who runs with a (no pun intended) pack of civil rights activists in the (pun intended) vein of the 1960s Freedom Riders. Unfortunately for the lot of ’em, their good intentions aren’t necessarily backed up by a whole lotta common sense.”

Since no casting decisions have been announced, who would be on your True Blood acting dream team? If you could cast anyone you wanted in both roles, who would it be?
