From Bon Temps to Los Angeles

Kevin Alejandro as Nate Moretta 1Kevin Alejandro (Jesus Velasquez) is quite the busy man it seems. The man behind the character responsible for stealing the heart of Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) is also a series regular on the TNT show Southland. The series, which is set to premiere its third season on January 4th, has our favorite caretaker taking on a different role, this time as LA detective Nate Moretta. According to the show’s website, the character is a detective in the gangs unit, was a private in the army, and is married with three children.

The website Daemon’s has posted pictures from the premiere episode of the season and I must say it’s a nice change to see Alejandro in a different role from what we’ve seen in True Blood. The photos featuring the actor in episode one are also posted here.

But fear not truebies! Jesus will be in Bon Temps full time during season four according to IMDb. So who knows what kind of  trouble the character, who revealed himself to be a witch last season, will find himself in during this upcoming season. However, if you can’t wait to see more of the charming Kevin Alejandro, be sure to check out Southland!
