True Blood Men Make People Magazine’s Top 100 Sexiest

November 11, 2010

Hold on to your hats, ladies (and gents?)… the time has arrived for People’s Sexiest Man Alive. Of course some of the fellas from HBO‘s True Blood had to make the top 100 list!  Did you ever doubt?  I didn’t think so.  Without further ado:

Sexy Chests to Be Thankful For

Joe Manganiello, ‘Alcide Herveaux

Manganiello plays Sookie‘s (Anna Paquin) new friend and protector, who happens to be a werewolf.  We are very much looking forward to seeing more of him in upcoming seasons.

From People Magazine:

“True Blood‘s lone wolf doesn’t have any qualms about displaying his bare essentials for the HBO hit. ‘Werewolves don’t shift shapes with their jeans on!’ he explained to PEOPLE of his racy scenes.”

And are we ever thankful for that!

True Blood's Joe Manganiello (Alcide Herveaux)

Stephen Moyer, ‘Vampire Bill’

Moyer plays 170-year-old Civil War veteran vampire Bill Compton, who is also Sookie’s on-again, off-again boyfriend.  Lucky for us, vampires’ bodies don’t change, and what we’re left with is a strong and fit delight of a man.  Yes, ma’am.

Stephen Moyer (True Blood's Vampire Bill)

Mehcad Brooks, ‘Eggs

Brooks played ‘Eggs’ Tally, Tara‘s love interest in Season 2.  It was sad to see him go, but thankfully we can still see him in other roles (the latest being Angelo Bembrey in Just Wright), and in the Spring 2010 Calvin Klein underwear ads.  If you haven’t seen him in the ads, grab something to fan yourself with and have a seat.  They are hot!

Sexy at Every Age

There you have it!  Three cheers for our three studs!  We are so proud.

Mehcad Brooks Suits Up for ABC Role

February 20, 2010

As Mehcad Brooks suits up for his role as a lawyer on ABC’s “The Deep End,” he reminisces with iF Magazine about time spent on the “True Blood” set, where he played Eggs, Tara Thornton‘s boyfriend in season two.

He said he had a lot of fun giving Eggs definition as a character — and he’s not talking about his muscles. The character is only in the novels the series is based on for a few chapters, so he and the writers got to make things up as they went along. He also had a longer run than expected — Eggs was only supposed to be in three episodes, but after his audition, Mehcad was asked to join the show.

Mehcad said his experience on the show was incredible, save the unsavory task of shooting scenes in a sweltering swamp.

“My last day of shooting “True Blood,” I was trudging through the swamps in between Lafayette and Baton Rouge. It was about 103 degrees, probably 110 heat index. They called, ‘Cut!’ and I said, ‘Next job I have, all air conditioning, all suits.’ … Swamp notwithstanding, I had an incredible experience on “True Blood.” It was an amazing show to be a part of, very well-received and it’s always a nice thing when people really appreciate the hard work that you put into something, so I could not have asked for a better run.”

Mehcad‘s role as Dallas-based lawyer Malcom Bennett on “The Deep End” has him tackling an entirely different role, he said, though he does draw from his experience working at his father’s law firm during high school. His character is blunt and guarded and always has the right answer.

“He’s somewhat guarded as a person, but he’s also glib and unapologetically dynamic. He’s always got the right answer, even if he doesn’t sugarcoat the pill, so you have to go to him and deal with him, even if you don’t like how he puts it. He’s very blunt. Perhaps it seems like he ignores feelings.”

Mehcad stars alongside Billy Zane, perhaps most famous for his “Titanic” role, and fellow HBO alum Tina Majorino, who played Heather Tuttle on “Big Love.”

VIDEO: True Blood Stars on the SAG Red Carpet

February 10, 2010

Several members of the True Blood cast were interviewed in yet another video taken at the SAG Awards. Amongst those were Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica Hamby), Alexander Skarsgard (Eric Northman), Mariana Klaveno (Lorena), and Mehcad Brooks (Eggs).

There were several small topics discussed in the video. First was about being at the SAGs. In that portion of the video, Deborah said “I think I was most excited about seeing my boyfriend in his fabulous suit. We’re such jeans and t-shirts kind of people that it’s nice to see him gussied up a bit.”

Alex talked directly about the SAG awards, commenting, “[It’s] very humbling… Amazing. Very flattering to be nominated.”

Mariana talked about how the SAGs allow actors to see their peers. She said, “It’s a little surreal. I just passed by Betty White and Joan Allen and I’m a little starstruck.”

The next section of the video was about how and when different actors got their SAG cards (you must have a speaking line in something before you are eligible to get it). Alex played the joker in this section of the video. His response “I thought you were going to say ‘When did you get this tall?'” was rather amusing!

Mariana said she got her SAG card because [she] was blown up on Alias. (I’m sure I’m not the only one who wants to see her character on True Blood have the same thing happen to her!)

Another portion of the video had the stars talking about the SAG Awards as a whole. Mehcad had this to say: “It’s us… You know it’s us voting for each other, it’s us patting ourselves on the back, it’s us respecting each other for work that we really appreciate and connect to.”

Alex‘s comment was more about being around the cast of True Blood than the SAG Awards themselves. He said, “It sounds kind of boring but I’m actually really excited because it’s seventeen of us in the cast—we’re all here tonight and we don’t—we never work together because there’s so many storylines going on on the show… I’m actually quite excited to hang out with the whole group tonight.”

In the final part of the video, which showed some various show casts with their awards, there is a two-second glimpse of Patrick Gallagher (Vampire Chow) saying “Thank you, thank you” for winning his award for his work on GLEE.

This is a rather long video (around 11 minutes), but just to see the cast of True Blood makes watching the whole thing worth it! After all, who doesn’t enjoy seeing actors we all love dressed to the nines?
