    in the book she was not a sister, she was a cousin, she was the daughter of Aunt Linda and yes, younger, what the series has done to the book SUCKS

    Janice is Alcide’s YOUNGER sister! People just need to get it right!

      In the book, she was younger. AB may be making her the older sister in the series. We don’t know yet.

      Nice article Ollie, I always enjoy reading your articles. Keep up the good work.

      • Hi Jaxx,

You all do your very best to be respectful to each each other and I know sometimes it can be hard when we get passionate about something but you make this an enjoyable place for people to post their comments and opinions and I want to thank you all for that. 🙂

    BTW Dawn Oliveri? Not Bad Not bad at All!!

  • Antonio

    Here is a thought: Drew Barrymore as DP?? maybe Shannen Doherty?? I think that Eliza Dushku would be incredible!!
    Then again knowing HBO they may want to go with 1 of their own?
    Maybe Jamie-Lynn Sigler of The Sopranos or perhaps Drea De Matteo who played Adriana?? Maybe Beyonce`?? Hey all You gals got all that hot male eye candy to feast on…How about bringing on some sexy gals for us guys?? LOL

      I thought of Shannen Doughtery too but I think she’s too old to play the part, but someone like the characters she played would be perfect. Drea D’Matteo??? She’d have to lose the heavy accent and exchange it for a Southern one. I don’t know. I’m guessing by now they have someone in mind or have already cast someone, they’re just not telling us yet. Can’t wait.

      if they bring those horrible chics like Shannon or Eliza in The series i will never watch it again! Don’t screw with True Blood!

  • jaxx

    I liked her character on Heros. I look forward to her playing Janice. Bring on Debbie Pelt already. Inquiring minds want to know.

  • Good news! Janice sounds like a fascinating and fun character and Ms. Olivieri looks like a perfect fit. Congrats to her, but is anyone else besides me simply dying to find out who will be cast as Debbie Pelt?
