VIDEO: Ryan Kwanten Has No Qualms About Nudity

November 26, 2014

Ryan Kwanten Discusses, True Blood, Nudity and What’s Next for the Aussie Actor:

Ryan Kwanten, who plays Jason Stackhouse in True BloodAussie actor, Ryan Kwanten, has headed back to Australia for a long earned rest after his seven year stint as Jason Stackhouse in HBO’s True Blood. First, however, he stopped in at Sydney’s Confidential to chat to Ant Sharwood about being a True Blood star, the obligatory nudity that goes with the territory and what is next in line for Ryan. After a little ribbing between the two, Ryan soon got down to business and had much to say about his time on the hit HBO show:

Whether it’s turning up to work and laying out the tears or taking off the clothes … I feel protected on a show like True Blood because it’s, you know, obviously written by an Academy Award-winner so I feel like I’m in good hands there. So, look, so long as the script warrants it and I feel like it warrants it, then I’ll do it.

Ryan then followed on to say he is prepared to do pretty much anything on screen.

In the video interview Ryan discusses:

  • What it’s like to talk in the key of Blinky Bill
  • Why he parked his bike in Steven Spielberg’s parking spot
  • What it was like to read each Jason Stackhouse script and how it was to play such a rambunctious character
  • Whether he will be catching up with his old friends now he has returned to Australia
  • Who keeps his ego in check

VIDEO: Sneak Peak at Anna Camp’s Pitch Perfect 2

November 24, 2014

True Blood‘s Anna Camp Returns for Pitch Perfect 2:

True Bloods Anna Camp stars in Pitch Perfect 2Well, here it is – the first sneak peek trailer for Pitch Perfect 2! Anna Camp returns to the cult classic in the making to play the uptight Aubrey. In Pitch Perfect 2, we find the a cappella group the Barden Bellas entering into an international competition that no American team has ever won. Will they succeed where so many others have failed?

Returning alongside Anna Camp (who played Sarah Newlin in HBO’s True Blood) will be Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Hana Mae Lee, Skylar Astin, Elizabeth Banks and Adam DeVine. The movie is slated for release on May 15th 2014. The Universal Pictures movie is from a screenplay written by Kay Cannon and Mickey Rapkin. Actor Elizabeth Banks not only stars in the show as Gail, but will be directing as well.

It will be very interesting to see whether Pitch Perfect 2 will live up to the high expectations of the first movie – or will it go the way of most sequels and be a flop? Judging by the video below however, I am guessing we just may have a winner on our hands.

Let us know what you think of the video clip and whether you will be checking out Pitch Perfect 2 by commenting below!

First Image of True Blood’s Alexandra Breckenridge on the Set of The Walking Dead…

November 23, 2014

… Or Is It? You Decide!

Alexandra Breckenridge starred as Katerina Pellham in HBOs True Blood Season 4In Season 4 of HBO’s True Blood, we were introduced to the recurring character of Katerina Pellham (played by Alexandra Breckenridge), the undercover agent, wiccan, and former member of Marnie Stonebrook’s (Fiona Shaw) coven. It is Katerina’s job to ascertain if Marnie’s coven poses a threat to vampires or not. Her role, unfortunately, was short lived after she was killed by Luis Patiño (Peter Macdissi).

However,  actress Alexandra Breckenridge went on to bigger and better things after True Blood. And many fans of FX’s American Horror Story franchise will remember Alexandra from Season 1 when she played the younger version of Moira. She also appeared in Season 3 as the witch Kaylee.

Now, it seems, Alexandra has joined the cast of AMC‘s juggernaut, The Walking Dead. Her role has been bathed in mystery with the only information on her character being as such:

“Samantha” [is] an attractive, strong, smart, charming and articulate woman with a vulnerable side. She’s a mother with a bohemian spirit, and a talented artist.

It is not even sure yet if the character name of Samantha is correct or merely a placeholder name in order to keep spoilers at bay.

Recently though, the following image was released on Instagram, sending Walking Dead fans into a frenzy of conjecture over the character of Beth (played by Emily Kinney) in Season 5. While the image does bear a striking resemblance to Kinney, it semes this may actually be the first on set picture of Alexandra Breckenridge! Truebies and Walking fans alike can make up their own minds:

 

What do you think? Beth or Samantha? Honestly, that looks like Emily Kinney to me, but let us know your thoughts by commenting below!

True Blood’s Lara Pulver Joins Cast Line Up for a Movie Version of ‘Spooks’

November 22, 2014

Before True Blood, Lara Pulver Was Known For Her Role on the BBC TV Series, Spooks:

Lara Pulver as Claudine S4 Ep3Truebies will remember Lara Pulver as the fairy, Claudine Crane. But before Lara joined the cast of the HBO vampire series, she was known for her role as Erin Watts, the head of the counter-terrorism division for MI5 in the long running BBC TV series, Spooks. This TV series was so loved in the UK that it will now be bought to the big screen via a movie adaptation of the TV series.

Spooks: The Greater Good will also star Peter Firth who will be reprising his role of Harry Pearce, the head of MI5. Kit Harrington (of Game of Thrones fame) will join the cast as Will Holloway, a former agent who is brought back to London from Moscow. The storyline (according to Radio Times) is as follows:

Firth played MI5 head Harry Pearce in every single episode of the drama. We won’t be finding Harry in an especially happy place, though. He is “disgraced and forced to resign” after a terrorist escapes from MI5 custody and “disappears one night off a bridge into the Thames” … Will [Holloway] must decide whether to help Harry or turn his rogue ex-boss in…

Alongside Lara Pulver, Tim McInnerny will reprise his role as the chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee. Also starring will be David Harewood, Jennifer Ehle, Tuppence Middleton and Elyes Gabel.

Spooks: The Greater Good was shot earlier this year and will hit UK cinemas on 8th May 2015. Let us know if you plan on seeing this by commenting below!

True Detective Season 2 Gets Another True Blood Alum:

Arlene Fowler (Carrie Preston) and Keith (Riley Smith) star in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 (entitled 'May Be the Last Time')Recently we announced that True Blood actor, James Frain (who played the deliciously unhinged Franklin Mott in Season 3 of HBO’s vampire series), will join the cast of HBO’s True Detective for their upcoming second season. Now it seems another True Blood cast member will join him. Deadline had the following information on this exciting news:

Following his major recurring role on the final season of HBO’s True Blood, I hear Riley Smith is returning to the pay cable network with a recurring role on True Detective. The second installment in the crime franchise revolves around three police officers, played by Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams, and a career criminal (Vince Vaughn) who must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. Smith will play McAdams’ boyfriend, Steve Mercier, a boyish Sheriff’s deputy.

Truebies will remember Riley Smith as newcomer Keith, the vampire that ended up stealing Arlene Fowler’s (Carrie Preston) heart in Season 7 of True Blood.
