Joe Manganiello’s Hopes About Sookie and David Bowie For Season 4

September 18, 2010

Season 3 of True Blood was a lot sexier thanks to Joe Manganiello, who plays werewolf Alcide Herveaux. Now a series regular, Joe spoke about Season 4 at the Alice and Olivia New York Fashion Week event.

He talks a little about the future for his characters as well as Sookie, but what’s really interesting is his hope to have David Bowie guest star on the show. David Bowie in Bon Temps? That would make for high ratings…maybe someone at HBO should take Joe’s advice.

Check out the video interview to get your True Blood fix as well as some juicy details about Season 4.

True Blood Season 3 Finale Ratings

September 16, 2010

Bill Compton, Sookie Stackhouse, True Blood, Anna Paquin, Stephen MoyerThe ratings for the True Blood’s Season 3 finale have finally been revealed. The finale, Evil (Is Going On) was able to pull in 5.4 million viewers at 9 p.m and an additional 1.1 million during its encore at 11 p.m.

While the numbers were down by 60,000 viewers from the last episode, the season finale did increase by 5% when compared to the Season 2 finale. Though the VMAs on MTV took the lead Sunday night with a 6.2 rating for adults 18-49, True Blood was able to post a 3.0 rating for adults 18-49; this is quite impressive when it was going up against an award ceremony that had the charming Joe Manganiello presenting.

If we don’t count the finale, True Blood was able to pull in 12.7 million viewers this season, which include linear plays, DVR recordings and HBO on Demand. This is quite impressive; who knew a little vampire show could gain so many followers?

What exactly do all these numbers mean? Well, it means more of Sookie’s fae revelations, more of Bill’s southern charm, more of Lala’s cooking, lots of weres, lots of witches, and more summer nights with Eric Northman!

True Blood’s Kevin Alejandro Dishes On His Mysterious Character

September 13, 2010

Kevin Alejandro True Blood JesusKevin Alejandro Shedding Some Light on his Character

When fans first met Jesus, Lafayette’s season 3 love interest on True Blood, they knew that there was something more behind his sweet smile and good intentions. Kevin Alejandro, who plays the mysterious man Lafayette has fallen for, confirms fans’ suspicions.

Kevin is quick to say that there is something up with Jesus and it was uncovered on the season finale, which aired Sunday September 12 at 9 on HBO. About the season finale, all Kevin said was,

“I was very surprised, and it’s really awesome what I get to do…It’s actually going to be a really great finale…There are a lot of stories that get wrapped up and some new ones that get introduced.”

Before landing the part of Jesus, the Texas native and his wife were big fans of the show. He was quite awed by working with so many great actors. As for playing a gay character, Kevin noted,

“We all do this because we want to do something outside ourselves and be part of something bigger than us and something great. ‘True Blood,’ it’s an amazing show.”

Another perk about working on the hit series is learning from his fellow actors. He says he has learned so much from Nelsan Ellis, who portrays Lafayette, by simply watching him at work.

The 34 year old will return to True Blood for the season four as well as continue his role as Detective Nate Moretta on TNT’s Southland when they start up their 3rd season next year. This fall he’ll also be filming the newest Kevin Smith film titled, Red State.

Kevin, who has had roles in Ugly Betty and Weeds, appreciates the fans he has gained through his acting career. He noted,

“This is probably one of the biggest things I’ve ever been able to be part of, and it’s been pretty amazing for me…I’m not jaded by it. I’m new to it. It really puts a smile on my face. Every day I’ve had somebody be really kind and appreciative of the things we’re doing (on the show), and personally I love it. I think it’s really cool that a person like me, coming from a small West Texas town, can have an impact on somebody.”

Fans hope Kevin keeps this positivity for years to come because they all love seeing him on TV and wish him only the best!

Marshall Allman Talks True Blood and Shapeshifters with G4TV

August 18, 2010

Marshall Allman True Blood Tommy Mickens on G4TV InterviewSeveral new characters have been introduced in Season 3 of True Blood and one of the more interesting ones to watch has been Sam Merlotte‘s brother Tommy Mickens, played by Marshall Allman.  As we have seen so far this season, Tommy, who is a shapeshifter, has been forced into illegal dog fighting in order to help take care of his parents.  Marshall sat down with G4 TV to talk about his character, shapeshifters and his wardrobe, or lack thereof.

In the interview Marshall talks about his first wardrobe fitting on True Blood where they went through the regular clothes and then presented him with his choice of “modesty socks” on a velvet lined case.  He goes on to describe some of the “sock” options and jokes about how creative the wardrobe staff is on the show.  Although we have seen the signs, Marshall hints that his character will become involved with Jessica in Season 3.  He goes on to talk about shapeshifters and his feeling that they do not get the credit they deserve and he jokes that him and Sam are going to start a campaign to get shifters the recognition they deserve.

Enjoy the video!
