March 29, 2013

Episode 3, Abducted, Features a New Doctor

John_Fleck_IMDBOn February 8th, 2013, Truebloodnet.com reported that Episode 3, Season 6 of HBO’s series True Blood had been re-titled. ‘Rock Hard Times’ was renamed ‘Abducted’, and would introduce the character of Dr. Overlark. It has been announced that veteran character actor, John Fleck (Weeds, Bones) has been cast in this role.

The recurring guest role of Dr. Overlark has been described as 50 years old, and a ruthless advisor to Arliss Howard’s Governor Creighton Burrell. Cast as Dr. Overlark, John Fleck is a long-time character actor who has appeared in a wide array of television guest roles. Mr. Fleck is one of only three actors to have appeared in every installment of the Star Trek television franchise (albeit as a different character in each).

We have one more character in place, but still no starting date for Season 6 to air. We’re left to speculate and anticipate, leaving us sure of only one thing: waiting sucks.

HBO’s True Blood Casting Two New Characters for Season 6:

January 17, 2013

Spoilery Details Can Be Found In New Character Descriptions

True Blood LogoSeason 6 of the HBO series True Blood has begun filming the ten episodes that will air this summer. While no start date has been announced, it’s rumored June is a safe bet. New show-runner Mark Hudis announced the production is casting two new characters as series regulars. It’s possible that dedicated fans can read between the lines of the descriptions to glean hints and spoilers of what’s to come in Season 6.

The first of the two characters lands on the evil side of things. Crooked politician, Creighton Burrell, has no love for vampires. Burrell’s wife abandoned him and their daughter when she ran off with a vampire. As the Governor of Louisiana, Burrell often lets his personal ambitions overpower his humanity.

The second of the new characters is ‘do-gooder’ Nicole Jannsen. Nicole is a key member of group of well-meaning activists. Nicole herself has no concerns for money and worries only about doing the right thing.

“When the show returns, we’ll be introduced to a cockeyed optimist named Nicole Jannsen who runs with a (no pun intended) pack of civil rights activists in the (pun intended) vein of the 1960s Freedom Riders. Unfortunately for the lot of ’em, their good intentions aren’t necessarily backed up by a whole lotta common sense.”

Since no casting decisions have been announced, who would be on your True Blood acting dream team? If you could cast anyone you wanted in both roles, who would it be?

True Blood Introduces New Character in Season 4 Finale

September 9, 2011

Scott Foley as “Patrick”, Terry’s Army Buddy:

Scott Foley, Patrick on HBO’s True Blood (Cliff Lipson/CBS)Todd LoweTerry Bellefleur on True Blood, has been acting with a creepy baby and creepy baby doll all season and he is looking forward to working with adults again. There will be a whole lot of drama going down between vampires, witches, shifters and werewolves this Sunday on the Season 4 finale. Somewhere in the middle of that we will be introduced to a new character, Patrick played by actor Scott Foley, an old army buddy of Terry’s.  Lowe explains why he [Patrick] is coming to Bon Temps now:

“He looked [Terry] up. He found him and I guess he has something to say and something to talk about. You don’t just wander in and find someone at their workplace unless you have something important to share with him.”

Their encounter will not be a long one, Lowe reveals, and from what he says above it will take place at Merlotte’s. Foley‘s character is expected to return in Season 5 in a more substantial role. Lowe hopes that this character’s entrance into the series means that True Blood’s audience will get to know more about Terry’s past, maybe see some flashbacks of his time in the war. Lowe said about Terry’s past:

“I’d like to see where his post-traumatic stress disorder came from. Was it a series of events? Was it a friend or life that was lost in front of him? Was it someone’s life that he took? I’d like to see where that goes and see why Terry is so screwed up… I have a feeling it’s going to go kind of dark. I got a hint from Alan Ball that we’re going to see a little darker side to Terry.”

The season finale will take place during Halloween. Lowe’s response to this spooky setting for the finale:

“Wouldn’t you think it’d be just a little bit anticlimactic with all this other stuff going on? But I guess the people of Bon Temps find a way to celebrate the Halloween Holiday.”

We are mere days away from the finale of Season 4, but what about Season 5 and all it will have in store for Terry Bellefleur? Are you exited to see Terry’s character grow and learn more about his past? Will the arrival of Patrick bring conflict to Terry’s life? Is it possible this old war buddy is a supernatural? Share you ideas and theories with us in the comments section below.

August 18, 2011

A War Veteran Named Patrick:

Scott Foley (True Blood’s Patrick)Recently, Wetpaint did a video article on True Blood’s newest cast member, Scott Foley. He will join the cast of True Blood for the finale, but will be back in Season 5.

Foley will play the role of Patrick, Terry Bellefleur’s platoon leader from when they served in Iraq together.

Now, fans of Grey’s Anatomy may be a little concerned about the upcoming prominent supporting role Foley will play in Season 5 of True Blood. Will he have to turn down his recurrent role on Grey’s? Well, you need not worry, the filming schedules of both shows are different, so he will be able to maintain both roles.

So how do you think Terry will react to Patrick showing up? Let us know once you check out the video!
