Season 5 May Reveal How Pam Became A Vamp

January 9, 2012

A Trip Back In Time For Pam?

Kristin Bauer van Straten as vampire PamMany True Blood fans love the show’s in depth flashbacks, and judging from recent casting calls Alan Ball may be gearing up to give fans a flashback we’ve all been anticipating for a long time during Season 5.

Ball is looking for two characters in particular. A non-threatening man in his 30s and a prostitute oddly named “Washcloth Helen.” Both of these characters will be introduced to fans during a flashback to a San Francisco brothel in 1905.

The significance in this may be in the date. According to author Charlaine Harris, this is the year that Pam became a vampire. In the novels her transformation takes place in London, not San Francisco, but this may just be one of the many changes Alan Ball has made to the series. I for one am glad to still have Lafayette around!

Of course there is always the possibility that this scene has nothing to do with Pam or how she was made into a vampire. Now that she’s all pretty again, I hope we get to see lots more of my favorite sassy vamp this upcoming season!

True Blood’s Lorena Krasiki Lives On

October 17, 2011

Bill’s Maker Makes the Top Ten List of Crazy Exes:

Crazy Lorena Krasiki in Season 3 of True Blood

When remembering Bill Compton‘s maker Lorena Krasiki, be it fondly or otherwise, one word comes to mind: crazy. There’s little evidence to argue otherwise. Perhaps she was just madly in love with Bill. She still needed to be fitted for her own, vampire proof straitjacket. Instead she’s number 8 on “The 10 Hottest Crazy Exes From Movies And TV” on

Lorena has had some of the most memorable scenes during her time on the show, including the much talked about twisted sex scene between her and Bill. My personal favorite memory of her involves a plasma screen television. Even during her happier times, Lorena had a twisted sense of enjoyment. In season 2 we saw a flashback of her and Bill’s more interesting antics in which they have some of the bloodiest sex on the show.

Whether you love Lorena or hate her for getting in between Sookie and Bill, there’s no denying she was very entertaining. What are some of your favorite Lorena moments? Let us know!

True Blood’s Rutina Wesley On Tara’s Future

October 14, 2011

Will Tara Make It To Season 5?

Rutina Wesley HBO promo season 4Season 4 of True Blood certainly ended with a bang, and if anyone knows about that it’s Tara Thornton. Of all the drama she has gone through on the show, being shot in the head is certainly the worst thing that has happened to her yet. In an interview with W Magazine, Rutina Wesley reveals that not even she knows if Tara will survive. She spoke of Tara’s future saying:

“What’s happening to my character? Am I alive or am I dead? So it’s a very scary place to be in, but it’s awesome.”

Wesley reminisces about some of her more interesting times on the show and how that compares to what she’s currently doing. Wesley is currently starring in a play at the Lucille Lortel Theatre in New York called, “The Submission.” In the dramatic play, Wesley stars as an actress hired by a playwright to take the credit for his latest, controversial play.

In the play Wesley has a few very intense scenes, though they are nothing like what she went through on True Blood. She compared the experiences, stating:

“They’re both hard in their own ways. I think they’re both degrading, but I think in a play like this, seven shows a week, it’s a lot harder. Because I’m doing it every day. Whereas that was just a day’s worth of shooting. We may do more than one take, but once it’s done, it’s done, it’s in the can. But I have to go through this every night.”

You can read the full story here. If you’re in the area be sure to check out the play and let us know what you think!

True Blood’s Jason Stackhouse Knows What Women Want

October 12, 2011

Ryan Kwanten Dishes on His Sex Symbol Status:

Sex Symbol Ryan KwantenSexy 34-year old Aussie actor Ryan Kwanten opened up to Men’s Health Magazine about how playing the dim-witted but adorable Jason Stackhouse on True Blood has heightened his status as a sex symbol. Kwanten believes it’s Jason’s confidence that draws women to him and allows them to look past his shortcomings. Kwanten stated:

“With all the guys on the show there’s a rawness to them. With Jason it’s very unabashed. He’s very comfortable in his skin. I think from a female perspective, that kind of audacity or confidence can be sexy… Although I don’t think that a guy like that could be sexy all the time. It is a little too full on… but then again, I’m not a girl.”

As a girl, I can safely say that Jason’s confidence is not the only thing that makes him sexy.

Kwanten also expresses his amazement at the show’s great success and how it has helped his career. You can read the full interview in the November issue of Men’s Health Magazine, on newsstands now.

True Blood’s Andy Bellefleur Finally Catches a Break

October 8, 2011

The Sheriff’s Hawaiian Vacation:

Chris Bauer, True Blood’s Andy BellefleurAfter watching the tumultuous ending to season four of True Blood, it’s clear that every person on that show could use a nice, long vacation. One person that is finally getting theirs in a big way is Chris Bauer. Now that he’s kicked the V habit, our favorite sheriff is off to the set of the revamped Hawaii Five-0 to film a guest spot on an upcoming episode.

Though the show is a popular crime drama, Bauer will be on the other side of the law this time around. He will guest star as the manager of an off-shore oil rig who runs into trouble when one of his men turns up murdered.

Tune in Monday nights at 10/9c on CBS to see how Bauer fares as a suspect in the popular show.

Ryan Kwanten’s “Griff the Invisible” – Finally On DVD!

October 5, 2011

Kwanten’s Sweet Superhero Griff:

Ryan Kwanten as Griff the Invisible

On Tuesday November 15th, Ryan Kwanten‘s new film Griff the Invisible will finally be available on DVD and Blu-ray.  This limited release is an off-beat indie comedy starring our favorite Bon Temps deputy as the title character.  Kwanten steps away from his role as True Blood‘s often shirtless Jason Stackhouse to play a man that lacks the confidence and sexy swagger that we are so used to seeing from him. A bored office worker by day, Griff is a man who spends most of his time and energy living in a fantasy world in which he spends his nights patrolling the streets as a superhero.

At first glance the plot sounds strangely reminiscent of previous superhero movies. In reality, what separates this film from the rest of the superhero genre is the charming romantic twist in which Griff ends up needing to be rescued. The story is more an insight into the human condition than it is an action packed adventure film and it gives us a chance to see Kwanten show his range as an actor.

Maeve Dermody co-stars as Melody, a cute daydreamer who is helplessly drawn towards Griff.  Rather than reject Griff for his disconnect from the real world, she embraces his differences.
