fredrikTrue Blood season 2 casting news for episode 5 “Never Let Me Go” and episode 2 “Keep this Party Going.” Fredrik Ejemo has been cast to play the role of Gunner who, according to previous casting calls is a badly wounded and bleeding viking in his 20s speaking Old Norse in a flashback scene to the tenth century AD which may mean it is a flashback scene to Eric’s previous life before he was turned into a vampire. Mr. Ejemo’s previous work includes the Swedish movie Kärringen därnere and a Swedish TV series entitled, Tre kronor.
