True Blood’s Carrie Preston is Seeing Red

March 15, 2011

If You Want Trouble, Find Yourself a Redhead:

True Blood's Carrie Preston (Arlene) PaleyFest '11Carrie Preston, the lovely actress who plays crazy Arlene on HBO‘s True Blood, has finally flipped her wig.  Actually, unlike her character going crazy under MaryAnn’s influence in Season 2, Ms. Preston has simply shed the wig she’s been using in favor of going red herself.  The people over at Wetpaint.com recently interviewed the Southern Belle, and asked:

Let’s talk about Arlene’s trademark fire-engine red hair. Is that your real hair dyed red, or a wig?

“Well, I’m finally not using the wig. It was always a wig for the first three seasons because I’m a blonde in real life, but I decided to take the plunge and dye my hair.  We’re actually using my real hair this season.  Which is really liberating for me because the wig confined me a little more than I wanted — I got a little tired of it.  So did the hair department.  There’s only so much you can do with a wig.  It’s fun to be a redhead in real life.”

That must be a relief!  The new color looks lovely on her.  So, what can we expect from Arlene this upcoming season?  There are so many new characters being added, and so many story lines going, it’s a wonder any of them get any in-depth exploration.  But Preston is confident, saying:

“There are so many characters in the show that the writers do an extraordinary job of touching down on each of the storylines and bringing them into the forefront.  We all kind of trade off along the way.  I’m very happy where my storyline has gone and the journey that Arlene has taken.  And, yes, this season there will be just as much as we’ve seen before of Arlene.”

Baby Talk:

Everyone is dying to know what Arlene’s (serial killer?) baby is going to be like — especially her.  She was so distraught about it last season, that she actually tried to get rid of it.  But as the fates would have it, baby survived.  Her current beau, Terry Bellefleur (Todd Lowe), is pleased as punch.  Could this mean trouble is on the horizon?  Here is Preston’s take on the whole situation:

“There’s a lot of stress around the baby.  Arlene is very conflicted about the baby coming.  Obviously, she made a very difficult decision to try to stop the arrival of the baby.  It did not work, but her feelings are still ambiguous about what that means — bringing the child of a serial killer into the world.  In her mind, Rene is evil and she is afraid that the baby might turn out to be evil.  There’s a lot of stress for any couple expecting a baby, but especially this couple.  But Terry is such a soulful, supportive, and lovely man that he will do anything to make the relationship work.”

Whose Team is She On?

Has Preston herself picked a side, as Truebies are wont to do?  In other words, is she Team Bill, or Team Eric?

“Oh, I don’t think I can pick.  I think what makes it work is that there is a triangle.  So to pick one over the other would maybe not serve the story as well.  You know, when you see shows like Friends, when Ross and Rachel finally get together it kind of loses the tension.  Same thing with Cheers.  When Sam and Diane get together, the tension falls out.  So I think it’s important to have that triangle and not ever land on one side or the other.”

She makes a very valid point.  Oftentimes, fans can get downright hostile when it comes to choosing sides, but we should keep in mind that Alan Ball knows what he’s doing, and love triangles do keep things interesting.  Right, Truebies?  Can’t we all just get along?  At least we can all agree on one thing: True Blood rocks — crazy redheads, evil babies, and all.

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:
