Nathan Parsons Chats About What’s Next After True Blood:

Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica Hamby) and Nathan Parsons (James) star in HBO's True Blood Season 7Recently, Nathan Parsons (who plays vampire James and the latest love interest of Lafayette Reynolds (Nelsan Ellis) on HBO’s True Blood) was interviewed by Access Hollywood about saying goodbye to True Blood and what is next on the cards for him.

Nathan reveals there is a period piece coming up for him but wasn’t able to elaborate on this role any more than that. So once we find out more, you will be the first to know! As for True Blood, Nathan couldn’t disclose any spoilers on the finale this Sunday, however, he did reveal that he thought True Blood ended perfectly – what ever that means. 😉

Access Hollywood also bought up the fact that Nathan’s character, James is in a gay relationship with True Blood stalwart, Lafayette. They were glad to see that being a gay character no longer holds the stigma it used to on television. This in part is thanks to shows like True Blood who never shy away from complicated or difficult subject matter.

Make sure you watch the video below to find out just where Nathan has been on a road trip to recently as well:

COMIC CON 2014: Deborah Ann Woll Talks About Her True Blood Reunion

August 3, 2014

San Diego’s Comic Con is a Great Place For a True Blood Reunion!

Deborah Ann Woll stars as Jessica Hamby in HBOs True Blood Season 7At this year’s Comic Con in San Diego, True Blood actress Deborah Ann Woll (who plays Jessica Hamby) got a final chance to catch up with the cast of HBO’s vampire series. It is a cast and crew that she feels are more like family and friends than any other movie or TV show she has worked on so far. While it has only been a few short weeks since the cast and crew wrapped up the final filming of the show, it still felt like a reunion for Deborah!

Speaking of reunions – or, more to the point, unions – what did Deborah have to say about a certain recent union between her character, Jessica, and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten)? And how did she think Violet (Karolina Wydra) would react:

You can kind of see she is not happy about it and I don’t think Violet is someone to let anything go. So there’ll definitely be some drama there.

You can watch the full video she shot with Access Hollywood below:

VIDEO: Alcide and Sookie Get ‘Friendly’ While Stephen Moyer Looks On!

Joe Manganiello: Sex With Sookie is Awkward With Her Husband Looking On:

Sookie Stackhouse Anna Paquin and Alcide Herveaux Joe Manganiello get cosy in HBO's True Blood Season 7With HBO’s True Blood Season 7 premiere event this week, there has been a glut of information from the stars of the show about what will happen in the final season. Access Hollywood got a chance to talk to Joe Manganiello (who plays Alcide Herveaux) about the new relationship between his character, Alcide, and Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) – and just what it’s like to be directed by Anna’s real life husband, Stephen Moyer (who also stars in True Blood as vampire Bill Compton). When asked whether this situation was awkward or not, his reply was:

Oh course it is… but Stephen and I have such a great friendship and we get along so well together that, you know, we’re professionals. And, obviously, you read that [in the script] and you go “Oh boy, here we go,” but, ah, if we didn’t get along so well together I think it probably could have been weird but it wasn’t.

Stephen Moyer actually has a different take on what it’s like to direct his wife in sex scenes with other actors:

In a funny way, I feel like — without revealing too much — it’s quite interesting for us as a couple because we’ve kind of gone to places where a lot of people don’t get to.  And we’re still here. And I think that’s good for us in a way.

he recently told Entertainment Weekly.

And what about Anna Paquin’s take on it? She also had this to say to Entertainment Weekly:

It’s not as awkward as you would think. If you were to picture the perfect day at work for your spouse, would that be it? Probably not, but this is just kind of how it’s always been. So it doesn’t feel as bizarre.

Besides this awkward and unique situation he also has time to talk about his upcoming role in Magic Mike 2 and how he keeps in shape for the show. You can view the entire interview below:

Joe Manganiello Gossips about True Blood’s Boy Sandwiches

March 11, 2011

The WereHunk Talked to Access Hollywood about Season Four at PaleyFest 2011:

Joe Manganiello talks about True Blood at PaleyFest 2011True Bloodfan favorite Joe Manganiello (Alcide Herveaux) revealed some excitingly delicious details to Access Hollywood on the red carpet at PaleyFest, one in which he promises there will be lots of boy sandwiches on the season four menu. Um, yes please!

“There’s definitely going to be some boy sandwiches this year with Sookie in the middle. For sure!”

Manganiello’s smile when talking about the chemistry between Alcide andSookie really says it all! And now that the 34 year old is a series regular, Manganiello couldn’t be happier about his place among his fellow cast-members:

“I really feel like I have a place at the table now. Where last year I felt like a kid getting bussed to another school in another district and this year I actually feel like I belong. I have a home there.”

Up until recently, Manganiello was being courted to play the role of Superman in the film’s 2012 reboot, Superman: Man of Steel. He was asked to screen test for the role and even got so far as giving his measurements for the suit, but the timing just didn’t work out.  Manganiello let some big news slip, indicating that filming for Superman would have taken up 11 weeks of his ‘True Blood’ season five schedule. So, season five, huh?! Best. News. Ever. Check out the interview in its entirety below:

SPOILERS: True Blood Season 4 is Going to be Crazy!

December 16, 2010

Cast Members Spill Details about Witches and Lots of Fighting:

We all remember how Season 3 ended. Sookie went off to fairy land, Sam shot someone or something, Bill squared off with Queen Sophie-Anne, the King of Louisiana took a cement bath, Eric escaped the cement bath, Tara drove off pseudo ‘Thelma & Louise’ style, and Lafayette discovered his inner witch. Cast members Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte), Rutina Wesley (Tara Mae Thornton), and Joe Manganiello (Alcide Herveaux) opened up to Access Hollywood about Season 4‘s craziness, admitting there’s going to be a lot of fighting and at least one cliffhanger from season 3 gets solved in the first episode.

Shoot em Up:

Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) and younger brother Tommy (Marshall Allman) have a heated discussion in season 3 of True BloodWhen we last saw Trammell’s character, Sam Merlotte, he was firing a gun with a lot of rage. Fans assumed shape-shifter Sam was taking aim at his younger brother, Tommy Mickens (Marshall Allman), who had helped himself to big brother’s hard earned (or maybe not?) cash. But, it’s possible that Alan Ball could have a shocking twist in store for us. Will he go the not so obvious route and have the drunken Sam commit friendly fire? Or will Sam in fact shoot his only brother?

“I can’t answer that. You don’t want to know… because something would be ruined for you, but you will find out. You will find out pretty quickly whether I did or did not.”

Trammell reveals that fans will find out in Episode 1 who the conflicted Merlotte ends up shooting. Any theories out there from you Truebies?

Does She or Doesn’t She?

Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley) and Franklin Mott (James Frain) in season 3 of True BloodRutina Wesley’s alter ego, Tara Thornton, definitely fought some crazy demons in season 3. Dealing with the death of Eggs (Mehcad Brooks) sent her into a downward spiral, where she contemplated suicide to the point of actually swallowing a large quantity of pills from her cousin’s medicine cabinet. Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) brought her back into the light, but darkness quickly enveloped her again in the form of a vampire, one psychotic Franklin Mott (James Frain). Upon Franklin meeting his true death, Tara found some peace, but too much emotional damage had been done, forcing her to rethink her life and the decisions she had to make.

“There’s gonna be some changes with Tara. Hopefully some power and some strength… And not be tied up all the time… I can’t tell you that (whether Tara returns to Bon Temp). I love my job too much.”

Are You a Good Witch or a Bad Witch?

Vampires and Werewolves signFor all the Truebies out there who have read the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris, season 4 means witches. Double, double, toil and trouble for sure! However, as we’ve all come to see, True Blood hasn’t necessarily followed the book series page by page. Joe Manganiello (Alcide Herveaux) concedes that witches descend on Bon Temps, creating trouble and wreaking havoc:

“What we know is that the werewolves and vampires don’t get along. We know that fairies and vampires don’t get along… Then we know from the books — if you look at the books — that the witches don’t get along with vampires. So basically everybody doesn’t get along with vampires. So at some point I would imagine the vampires are going to possibly [make] some friends…”

Season 4 has been filming for nearly a  month, so new details and spoilers will be trickling out more as we enter the new year. What do you think, Truebies? Any crazy ideas about what we might see come June?
