We all remember him as Tommy Mickens, Sam Merlottes messed up younger brother in season 4 of HBO‘s True Blood. While the character, Tommy, was often annoying, as younger brothers frequently seem, it was very well played by Marshall who is anything but annoying in real life as any of his Twitter followers can attest. Be sure to follow him – @MarshallAllman – as we’ll be tweeting him up during the rerunning of Season 4 of True Blood on HBO tonight . Marshall will be attending a screening of his new movie tonight, April 14th, 2012 but will take some time to give a shout out to all his True Blood fans during the showing. Marshall has appeared in dozens of other TV shows including “Justified” and “Prison Break” as well as hit movies such as “Hostage” starring “Bruce Willis” and “Prison Break“. Marshall plays the lead – Don Miller – in his latest movie, “Blue Like Jazz.” A synopsis of “Blue Like Jazz” follows and you can get ticket information and see a promo of the film by clicking the link at the bottom of the article.
