True Blood Star Evan Rachel Wood Thinks Sex Scandals Aren’t That Scandalous

October 15, 2011

New Film “The Ides of March”:

Queen Sophie Anne (Evan Rachel Wood)Evan Rachel Wood, True Blood‘s Queen Sophie Anne, is appearing in The Ides of March. This political thriller stars George Clooney, Ryan Gosling and many others. The film deals with many issues, including sex scandals, and according to Wood that’s fine. In a recent interview the actress quotes one of the most poignant lines from the movie: “You can start a war, you can bankrupt a country but you can’t sit with the interns.”

Wood does not consider sitting with the interns that scandalous:

“We make such a big deal about these sex scandals, which are actually the most natural things in the world and everyone has skeletons in their closet and it actually shouldn’t matter at all. I don’t want to know. People can do whatever they want with themselves and that’s fine. It has nothing to do with the way you conduct yourself at your job.”

The True Blood actress enjoyed working with director George Clooney “…I really like working with directors who are actors because you speak the same language.” Wood didn’t go method on this project; she relied on documentaries and information given by director George Clooney. Even though the film is serious, the making of it was very enjoyable. Wood describes the fun atmosphere Clooney created on set:

“And he made sure everyone was having a great time. I think he knows that if your cast and crew are happy then you’re going to get good work. That’s actually really rare. But that’s why I loved working with him.”

With True Blood over, chances to see our favorite TV stars are few and far between. Will you be heading to the movies to see Queen Sophie Anne in this political thriller? Do you think sex scandals are a big deal? Share you comments and thoughts with us in the section below.

Video: Stephen Moyer Spills on Season 5 — Spoilers!

September 13, 2011

Vampire Bill shares Spoilers for Season 5:

Stephen Moyer as True Blood’s Bill ComptonMTV recently interviewed Stephen Moyer (the handsome Brit who plays vampire Bill Compton on HBO’s True Blood) at the junket for his latest movie, The Caller. When asked for Bon Temps Spoilers Moyer said:

“I know there is going to be an omnipresent power in season five. I know what it is. I think we could be heading towards an even greater season.”

Sounds marvelous! What could this “omnipresent power” be? More witches? Fairies? Another Supe? Will Jesus fly down to Bon Temps and decide he can’t miss all the fun? Wait, Moyer has more to say about the coming season:

“If they go where they’re going, it will be amazing and upset a lot of people, which is what we like.”

Great! Nine months of these teasers! How are we going to cope? After Sunday’s incredible finale (with the most cliffhangers in True Blood finale history) we have plenty to ponder. Stephen Moyer’s statement just adds more questions to our ever-growing list. It’s going to be a long nine months.

Watch the video, and share your theories, questions, and ideas about season five in the comments section below. Who knows? Maybe Alan Ball will stumble across our page and get some ideas from us!

True Blood Introduces New Character in Season 4 Finale

September 9, 2011

Scott Foley as “Patrick”, Terry’s Army Buddy:

Scott Foley, Patrick on HBO’s True Blood (Cliff Lipson/CBS)Todd LoweTerry Bellefleur on True Blood, has been acting with a creepy baby and creepy baby doll all season and he is looking forward to working with adults again. There will be a whole lot of drama going down between vampires, witches, shifters and werewolves this Sunday on the Season 4 finale. Somewhere in the middle of that we will be introduced to a new character, Patrick played by actor Scott Foley, an old army buddy of Terry’s.  Lowe explains why he [Patrick] is coming to Bon Temps now:

“He looked [Terry] up. He found him and I guess he has something to say and something to talk about. You don’t just wander in and find someone at their workplace unless you have something important to share with him.”

Their encounter will not be a long one, Lowe reveals, and from what he says above it will take place at Merlotte’s. Foley‘s character is expected to return in Season 5 in a more substantial role. Lowe hopes that this character’s entrance into the series means that True Blood’s audience will get to know more about Terry’s past, maybe see some flashbacks of his time in the war. Lowe said about Terry’s past:

“I’d like to see where his post-traumatic stress disorder came from. Was it a series of events? Was it a friend or life that was lost in front of him? Was it someone’s life that he took? I’d like to see where that goes and see why Terry is so screwed up… I have a feeling it’s going to go kind of dark. I got a hint from Alan Ball that we’re going to see a little darker side to Terry.”

The season finale will take place during Halloween. Lowe’s response to this spooky setting for the finale:

“Wouldn’t you think it’d be just a little bit anticlimactic with all this other stuff going on? But I guess the people of Bon Temps find a way to celebrate the Halloween Holiday.”

We are mere days away from the finale of Season 4, but what about Season 5 and all it will have in store for Terry Bellefleur? Are you exited to see Terry’s character grow and learn more about his past? Will the arrival of Patrick bring conflict to Terry’s life? Is it possible this old war buddy is a supernatural? Share you ideas and theories with us in the comments section below.

Video: True Blood Stars’ Upcoming Film Projects

September 3, 2011

Anna Paquin, Rutina Wesley and Alexander Skarsgård:

TB Season 4 poster-redJust because True Blood’s Season 4 is coming to an end doesn’t mean you have to wait until next season to see your favorite stars on screen. The actors have been hard at work on non-vampire related film projects that will be coming out later this year.

Anna Paquin (Sookie) will be staring in Margaret, playing a high school student who “may or may not have caused a fatal bus crash.” This movie was filmed five years ago and its release has been delayed, because writer and director Kenneth Lonergan couldn’t pick a final version of the film that he was content with. Is it a good sign that the film has gone unreleased for five years? You’ll have to see it and decide for yourself. The film also stars Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo and Allison Janney.

Rutina Wesley (Tara) HBO promoRutina Wesley (Tara) has recently won a role in Immaculée Ilibagiza’s memoir Left to Tell, about the genocide in Rwanda. Sounds promising, but Wesley is always playing such serious roles, maybe one day she’ll star in a comedy!

Last but not least, Alexander Skarsgård (Eric) has a few movies coming out in the coming months. The True Blood vampire will be appearing in What Maisie Knew with Julianne Moore. Skarsgård is also in Straw Dogs with James Marsden and ex-girlfriend Kate Bosworth. Finally, the actor will be starring in Battleship, a film based on the classic board game, costarring Rihanna.

With so many films coming out True Blood fans will have plenty to keep them busy until Season 5. What movies will have you heading to the theaters and which will have you staying at home watching reruns of True Blood? Watch the video and let us know in the comment section below.
