Video: True Blood’s Todd Lowe on Terry and Season 5

June 24, 2012

Todd Lowe Answers Fan Questions About Season 5:

Todd Lowe as Terry BellefleurRecently, Bon Temps’ resident Army vet answered some fan questions on Uinterview.com. One fan asked what he thinks is going to happen with Terry and Arlene‘s relationship. According to Lowe, while he can’t predict the future since that is up to the writers, he believes “in his heart that Terry loves Arlene and he’s going to hold her as close as he can.” Aww! That Terry is so sweet!

Another fan asked if Lowe has had to play Terry differently since he’s started a family with Arlene. Lowe indicates that since meeting Arlene and starting a family, the “storm in his mind” has passed, but “maybe we’re just in the eye of the hurricane.” Hmm, foreshadowing much? Watch the video below to see his answers to these and other fan questions!

Behind the Scenes: Dragging to the True Blood Season 5 Finale

May 25, 2012

What a Drag:

I know what you’re thinking, “The season hasn’t even started yet. Why are you talking about the finale?!” Well, thanks to a Behind the Scenes photo posted on HBO‘s Inside True Blood Blog, True Blood writer Angela Robinson has given us a brief look at the finale. Accoring to Robinson, “We’re breaking the finale, but that’s all I can say!”

Shooting the Season 5 Finale

Also taking place BTS is a lesson on drag. No, not that kind of drag. As seen below, executive producer Gregg Feinberg and stunt coordinator Hiro Koda are demonstrating to other crew members how to properly drag someone by the foot. One hint provided is that one of the men is standing in for Alcide. I hardly think Alcide would take that lying down.

Gregg Feinberg and Hiro Koda-What a Drag

It’s shaping up to be quite an interesting season!

Stick around, folks, I got a million of ’em.

The book also contains 150 full page photos from the show to “give fans a big taste of Bon Temps.” The book is written by Gianna Sobol, an associate producer on the show, and the one and only Mr. Alan Ball. The recipes are by the self-proclaimed Queen of Cajun Cooking Marcelle Bienvenu.

Video: True Blood’s Marshall Allman in Blue Like Jazz

March 9, 2012

Tommy Mickens Escapes the Bible Belt:

Marshall Allman Blue Like JazzThe trailer for Marshall Allman‘s new movie, Blue Like Jazz, has been released. Blue Like Jazz is about a 19 year old named Donald Miller who is ashamed of his Baptist upbringing and goes to a college in Oregon to escape. He lets loose and in the process, hurts some of his new friends and works to make it right. The movie looks like it is a classic coming of age story with a slightly religious twist. Allman is not the only young star in this film. It also stars Claire Holt (The Vampire Diaries), Tania Raymonde (Lost), and Natalia Dyer (Hannah Montana: The Movie).

Blue Like Jazz is directed by Steve Taylor, director of The Second Chance, which also has a religious theme. Steve Taylor, along with Ben Pearson, wrote the film. It is slated to be released April 13, 2012.

I think Allman is really going to be able to show off his acting chops in this film. Truebies, watch the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments!
