HBO’s True Blood Season 6 Casting News:

March 29, 2013

Episode 3, Abducted, Features a New Doctor

John_Fleck_IMDBOn February 8th, 2013, Truebloodnet.com reported that Episode 3, Season 6 of HBO’s series True Blood had been re-titled. ‘Rock Hard Times’ was renamed ‘Abducted’, and would introduce the character of Dr. Overlark. It has been announced that veteran character actor, John Fleck (Weeds, Bones) has been cast in this role.

The recurring guest role of Dr. Overlark has been described as 50 years old, and a ruthless advisor to Arliss Howard’s Governor Creighton Burrell. Cast as Dr. Overlark, John Fleck is a long-time character actor who has appeared in a wide array of television guest roles. Mr. Fleck is one of only three actors to have appeared in every installment of the Star Trek television franchise (albeit as a different character in each).

We have one more character in place, but still no starting date for Season 6 to air. We’re left to speculate and anticipate, leaving us sure of only one thing: waiting sucks.

New Role to Be Cast for Season 6 (and Beyond) of True Blood

March 27, 2013

She’s Sexy, She’s a Vampire, and Her Name is Violet:

Karolina Wydra stars as Violet in Season 6 of HBO's True BloodMore characters are being cast for HBO’s True Blood every day. Season 6 is looking to burst at the seams, that’s for sure!

The newest cast member will be Karolina Wydra. Fans of House may remember her as Dominika, House’s bride of convenience. According to TV Line,  Wydra will be playing the role of Violet. Spoiler TV have described this character as such:

A sexy, dangerous vampire named Violet will be part of a love triangle in seasons 6 & 7.

They also speculate this triangle may involve Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) and the new vampire, Wes. It is also said that the character of Violet is possibly dangerous enough to rival the likes of Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer).

I guess only time will tell.

What are your predictions for this character in Season 6 of True Blood? Let us know in the comments below.

New Pictures Emerge of True Blood’s Rutger Hauer and Ryan Kwanten

March 21, 2013

What are Jason Stackhouse and Macklyn up to in Season 6?

Rutger Hauer guest stars on the set of True Blood along side full time True Blood star Ryan Kwanten in Los AngelesPhotos have just been released of newcomer, Macklyn (Rutger Hauer) and True Blood regular Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) on the set of HBO’s True Blood. While there is no indication which episode of Season 6 this is for, it certainly is food for thought.

Thanks to previous spoilers released, we know that Macklyn is a sinister and some what mysterious character that has ties to both Jason and Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin). It is, in fact, a possibility that Macklyn may have been the one who murdered their parents! So what is Jason doing in these scenes with him?

But what I really want to know is…who is Macklyn’s hairdresser?

You can view more photos of Rutger Hauer and Ryan Kwanten here.

How do you think this story line will play out in Season 6 of True Blood? Let us know in the comments below.

True Blood Season 6 SPOILER: Episode 5

March 20, 2013

Promo poster for HBO's True BloodIt appears, thanks to SpoilerTV, that the title of Episode 5 in Season 6 of HBO’s True Blood will be called: ‘F*ck The Pain Away’.

With a title like that, fans could be led to believe that all is not rosy for someone in Bon Temps. When SpoilerTV goes on to say that there is a role call for actors to play the parents of newcomer Ben (Rob Kazinsky), then there is speculation maybe Sookie (Anna Paquin) is the one suffering?

Since Ben is a fairy, it would appear his parents are too. However, we will see them via a flashback in this episode – so are they still alive?

What are your theories on Season 6 of True Blood? Let us know in the comments below.

Mark Hudis Steps Down After Only 4 Episodes of True Blood

March 12, 2013

HBO Stalwart, Brian Buckner, to Take His Place:

True Blood promo poster - redNews has just been received that Alan Ball’s replacement for Season 6 of True Blood, Mark Hudis, has stepped down from the popular HBO show after 4 episodes! While Hudis was picked to replace Ball after only being with the show since Season 4, Brian Buckner has been with True Blood since Season 1. It is a worry that Hudis has found it hard to fill Ball’s shoes and has been quoted as saying:

It’s impossible to fill Alan Ball’s shoes …  really, this plane is in the air, and I just want to land it safely.

Hudis has signed a two year contract with HBO, but it appears that he will possibly be focusing more on the developmental side of his contract now.

Do you think this sudden change of leadership will help or hinder Season 6? Let us know in the comments below.

Alex Skarsgård Pauses True Blood For The East At Sundance:

March 8, 2013

Taking A Break From Filming Season Six of HBO’s True Blood, Alexander Skarsgård Attends Sundance Movie Premier

The_East_At_Sundance_by_Bjorn_LarsonPremiering January 20th at the Sundance Film Festival, The East is a film starring Alexander Skarsgård (Eric Northman) of HBO’s series, True Blood. Mr. Skarsgård was joined by the film’s other cast members in discussing its central theme; is there morality in terrorism?

The East is an espionage thriller that focuses on an operative, Sara Moss, played by Brit Marling. Sara is investigating a group of eco-terrorists targeting big businesses causing harm to the public. The group is loosely led by Benji (Mr. Skarsgård), who Sara finds herself drawn to. Ellen Page rounds out the cast as a group member named Izzy.

Mr. Skarsgård explains the film’s theme:

“The question is, morally, where do you draw the line? How far are you willing to go for this cause? …it’s not preachy. It’s complicated. The way life is and reality is.”

While attending The Sundance Film Festival, Mr. Skarsgård also found time to meet with fans and sign some autographs outside of Village At The Lift.
