    Next to Vincent D’Onofrio, James Frain is my favorite actor. I started watching True Blood purely because I found out he would be in the third season (and of course fell in love with the show).
    I hope this new show is amazing so I can see James on my tv every week.

    The most positive sign is the excellent supporting cast. Keith David, James Frain, Vinnie Jones, and Summer Glau is one hell of a group to fill out a show with.
