Also joining the cast are Kristin Chenoweth, Alan Cumming, Maya Rudolph, Sam Palladio, Alfred Molina, Elijah Kelley, Bob Einstein, Peter Stormare and Meredith Anne Bull.

What if Tom Hanks Was a 13 Year Old GIRL Trapped in a Grown Up Body:
The classic family movie, Big, stars Tom Hanks and tells the story of a 13 year old boy who wishes to be a grown up – and manages to get that wish granted! In among all the trials and tribulations that arise with a kid trapped inside an adults body, there is also the suggestion of romance. This is really cute, until you consider the implications. Which is what Funny or Die did recently. Not only did they explore the darker side of a 13 year old getting romantically involved with a grown up, they also took it to a whole other level when they invited Evan Rachel Wood (who played the vampire queen Sophie Anne Leclerq in HBO’s True Blood) to bring a female aspect to the lead role.
This video is completely NSFW, so make sure you are discrete when viewing it since it contains a vast amount of F-bombs.
The video also stars Darren Criss (who stars as the Kurt’s love interest, Blaine, in Fox’s TV series Glee) as Evan’s love interest. Clicking on the image below will open up the Funny or Die video clip in a new window for your viewing enjoyment.

From True Blood Vampires to Dystopia:
Fans of Evan Rachel Wood’s interpretation of the vampire queen of Louisiana, Sophie Anne Leclerq, in True Blood are in for a treat with recent announcement of her return to HBO. It has been confirmed that Wood has signed on for Westworld, an adaptation of Michael Crichton’s 1973 dystopian theme park film. A pilot episode has been commissioned for release in 2015 and also stars Anthony Hopkins (Silence of the Lambs). This is the first time Hopkins will appear as a regular character in a television series. The Telegraph released these details on his character:
Hopkins will play Dr Robert Ford, the inspired but aloof director of Westworld, an amusement park of the future where life-like cyborgs provide guests with ultra-realistic simulations of past ages. The park is transformed into a zone of terror when its central computer malfunctions, and forces two visitors into a cat-and-mouse chase with a gun-slinging android cowboy.
In the original movie, Yul Brynner fulfilled the role of the gun-slinging android cowboy.
HBO released the following images and video via Twitter to coincide with their announcement:

True Blood’s Evan Rachel Wood Lends Her Voice to Disney:
Disney has recently announced it would be producing a new animated movie based loosely on William Shakespeare’s A Mid Summer Night’s Dream. The movie is called Strange Magic and True Blood’s Evan Rachel Wood has been cast as one of the voice actors. Truebies will remember Evan in the role of Sophie-Anne LeClerq, the Vampire Queen of Louisiana. She appeared in Seasons 2 through to 4 of HBO’s vampire series. As yet there is no news on the role Evan will be playing, but here is the cast list for Strange Magic as announced so far:
- Kristin Chenoweth
- Evan Rachel Wood
- Alan Cumming, Maya Rudolph
- Sam Palladio
- Alfred Molina
- Elijah Kelley
- Bob Einstein
- Peter Stormare
- Meredith Anne Bull
And here’s the synopsis:
“Strange Magic” is a madcap fairy tale musical inspired by “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Popular songs from the past six decades help tell the tale of a colorful cast of goblins, elves, fairies and imps, and their hilarious misadventures sparked by the battle over a powerful potion.
Gary Rydstrom will direct Strange Magic. The screen play is written by David Berenbaum, Irene Mecchi and Gary Rydstrom from an idea originally penned by George Lucas (of Star Wars fame). Marius de Vries is listed as musical director and composer and it has been revealed that Strange Love will feature modern day pop songs.
Evan Rachel Wood is not the first True Blood star to lend her voice to a Disney production. Anna Camp recently took on the role of Princess Ivy in the Disney Junior movie entitled Sofia the First: The Curse of Princess Ivy.

True Blood’s Season 6 Premiere Kicked Off In a Big Way:
For those of you who may have missed the live social media event hosted by HBO prior to the Season 6 True Blood Premiere, HBO has posted all the Q&A’s on their HBO Connect website! For the first time ever our favourite cast members appeared live on the set of Fangtasia to answer fans burning questions. True Blood’s Season 6 is sure to come with many ups and downs…check out some of my favourite questions, and hit the link to the HBO site for full Q&A details! Or you can check out the actual You Tube video if you have 15 minutes to burn!
Q (For all cast members): Without giving too much away are there any scenes in Season Six that made you cry in real life?
A): This is a season that takes its toll on the humans for sure.
Q(For Alex) 1st Season Eric was evil, then amnesia Eric wasn’t – do you think THIS SEASON’s Eric is a nice mix of the both, or more evil?
A): I’d say the old Eric is pretty much back. But the Amnesia changed him fundamentally, and he’ll always carry that experience within.
Q): Who does the best impression of other characters on True Blood?
A): Chris Bauer: Without a doubt the best mimic on our set, and in my opinion most underrated actor, is Sammy Trammell. If anyone wants to have a conversation with Alexander Skarsgard, and he can’t be there, just have Sam imitate him instead. It’s uncanny.
