Marshall Allman wants to Wreak Havoc at the Zoo

June 29, 2010 by  

True Blood‘s Marshall Allman has quite the imagination. The actor, who plays shapeshifter Sam Merlotte‘s brother Tommy Mickens, said to Hollywood Crush that he’d like to showcase Tommy‘s powers even more during True Blood‘s off season. Since True Blood has minisodes that were aired before the start of Season 3, Marshall has said that he’d like to do one of his own next season with Sam Trammell where both Sam‘s and his character wreak havoc at a zoo.

The idea came to Marshall after he saw one of the Season 3 promotional posters for True Blood, which featured a flock of flamingos at a zoo with the sign “Please Don’t Feed the Shapeshifters” posted in the flamingo exhibit. However, Marshall took that idea a step or two farther…

“How much fun would it be if your kid was looking at a monkey in a cage, then he looks to his right, and the monkey is all of the sudden outside of the cage? It’s so funny! It would be really cool if all of the sudden there appeared in the fourth season a parrot that showed up and talked to the characters as if it was God. The parrot would be like, ‘Gwak, this is God!’ I could totally manipulate every character! Could you imagine Lafayette going for a smoke break and a parrot starts talking to him? Oh my gosh!”

Sounds like Marshall‘s got the right idea and maybe we’ll see this concept as a minisode next season. What do you think? Would wreaking havoc like this be something fun to watch before season 4 of True Blood airs?

    Maybe it’s just me, but I find Marshall Allman a little uh snotty for the lack of a better word.. he just got on the show and already he’s spewing ‘ideas’, no offense of course but Im just saying, first the whole shifter/were/vamp ‘theory’ and now this..!

    Or maybe…. I just shouldnt be annoyed 😛 hmm..
