EW Names True Blood Cast #2 Entertainer of the Year

December 20, 2009 by  

eric_and_bill_lobbyTrue Blood earned a spot in EW’s annual Entertainers of the Year issue for being the best vampire story for adults. From meat trees to orgies, Season two was totally bizarre–and totally irresistible.

Alan Ball said he felt like the show had become a phenomenon when he saw Team Bill and Team Eric t-shirts online. For Alexander Skarsgard and Stephen Moyer, the actors who play the vampires that have divided fans into passionate teams, they hope that their relationship, not just with Sookie, but with each other will be developed further. Alex liked that Eric went from being Bill’s sheriff in Season one to a more complex character. Stephen describes what he envisions for their history together:

“Me and Alex have this dream that we’re going to cut to Bill and Eric in this disco in the ’80s in, like, Berlin or something. And Bill‘s in leather.”

That would be amazing to see! Who else thinks Alan Ball needs to make that happen?
