Changes for True Blood and Alcide: Joe Manganiello Tells All
July 23, 2013 by Elizabeth Boone
The Plot Thickens for Joe Manganiello and Alcide Herveaux:
If you were as excited as we were to hear that Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) father Jackson Herveaux (Robert Patrick) was going to be a regular character on True Blood during Season 6, you probably also notice that we have yet to see much of him.
Manganiello spoke of this recently at Comic-Con, saying that he’s been off on his own this season and away from the rest of the regulars. There were, however, original plans for much more screen time between Alcide and his father:
“I haven’t really interacted with any of the series regulars … It’s kind of like my own little spin-off. There was more [with me and Robert Patrick], but they changed the storyline and [there’s now all this footage that is not a part of the show].”
The change might have occured due to the recent showrunner shuffle: Marc Hudis was the original showrunner of the season but was replaced halfway by Brian Buckner.
Even with all of the changes, the buff actor assured that the characters will come together by the end of the season.
How so? We’ll just have to tune in to HBO every Sunday at 9 p.m. to see!
