    I still cannot believe that Taylor Lautner beat out Sam Trammell in this category! TL gave a pretty good performance in New Moon as I’m sure that he will in This summer’s Eclipse film. However, this was a few months ago…Before New Moon was even out at the theaters! TL did not have a very big part in the 1st Twilight film So Why would they vote for him?? He didnt bulk up until later for the role! Sam gave a good solid performance as shapeshifting bartender Sam Merlotte! Why did they even consider adding him to this if they knew that Taylaut would get it??

    Spike TV IS a channel for Men. RP and TL are Boys!! Sam Trammel is the Dude here!!
    Lets vote for grown up professional actors NOT Little Boys!!

  • antonio

    I’m hoping that Sam Trammel will beat RPatz and Taylor Lautner!
    TB OVER Twilight Yeah!!!
    Go Sammy GO TB!!!!

  • antonio

    I’m so glad. I think he deserves it! Sam is one of my favorite characters on the show. I was thinking of voting for Rpatz for Twilight but Sam Trammel is definitely worth my vote here!!
    I liked Sam for Sookie because he is genuine,kind and funny plus he is Real. I like Bill but he can be a bully sometimes and a hot head Go Sam!!!

    You go Sam, we love you!
