True Blood’s Youngest Vampire, Jacob Hopkins, to Appear on ABC’s ‘The Goldbergs’

October 7, 2013

Jacob Hopkins is Set to Get His Geek On:

Jacob Hopkins starred as Alexander Drew in HBO's True Blood Season 5Fans of HBO’s True Blood will remember Jacob Hopkins as the feisty perma-child Vampire Authority member Alexander Drew from Season 5. They will also remember his splattery demise when it was revealed he was not really an advocate of the popular mainstreaming movement being pushed by the Vampire Authority, he was, in fact, a secret Sanguinista. Once video evidence was revealed, it was time for Roman (Christopher Meloni) to do away with the perpetually 9 year old vampire.

Well, now the 11 year old actor is back on television! You can check him out in ABC’s The Goldbergs. He will be guest-starring as Chad Kremp, a character who is billed as being cool on the outside and pure geek on the inside – another chance for Jacob to play a double-sided character! There is also the opportunity for this role to expand and become a recurring one. Hopkins will first appear in Episode 107 when he becomes instant best friends with Adam (Sean Giambrone).

Besides his guest role in The Goldbergs, you can also check out Jacob in the Lifetime movie, Missing at 17, which will premiere on October 19th 2013. He has also recently been cast as the voice of Gumball Waterson in third season of Cartoon Network’s The Amazing World of Gumball due out in the spring of 2014.

October 4, 2013

Trubie Fans Can Donate to KickStarter:

Carrie Preston DarwinDarwin is an original webseries directed by Carrie Preston (who plays Arlene Fowler-Bellefleur in HBO’s True Blood) and created by Christopher Gerson, Karl Kenzler and Lynn Rosen. Preston is currently raising awareness for this series in a bid to complete the final episode. Recently, she took to Facebook with the following message:

Carrie Preston also released the following statement on why you should help fund Darwin:

I felt inspired to bring DARWIN to the screen because I fell in love with the very flawed, wonderfully specific and heartbreakingly funny characters. I wanted to take the elevated language in the script and match it with a directing style that was equally heightened. So I created a palate of shots and points of view that allow the audience to find intimacy with the characters and at the same time experience the slightly off-kilter nature of them.

Fans who help out via the KickStarter campaign not only get the sense of achievement gained from helping the cast and crew get this series finished, but the other incentives also include:

  • a digital download of Season 1
  • access to premium content on the Darwin website
  • a limited edition postcard signed by Carrie Preston
  • a personalized Facebook thank you video from the cast
  • a personalized shout out on Twitter from two time Tony nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger
  • a Twitter shout out from Hemlock Grove’s Dr. Johann Price (played by Joel de la Fuente)
  • for True Blood fans, Carrie Preston will give a person shout out while on set!

Johnson/HBO Kristin Bauer van Straten “Pam Swynford de Beaufort”Fans of Kristin Bauer van Straten (who plays vampire Pam in HBO’s True Blood) are well aware of the environmental stance the actress holds. Recently she appeared on Real Time With Bill Maher: Backstage Pass with Jeremy Seifert in a bid to raise awareness for GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms).

Many people are unaware of GMO’s and just how broadly they have entered our food chain. With little testing on their effects on humans, there is now concern these products may end up causing us harm, even though their original intent was to provide more easily accessible food. Kristin Bauer van Straten and Jeremy Seifert discuss the role of GMO’s and organics in our lives.
