cooper huckabeeThis time has the latest True Blood season 3 casting news with information that Cooper Huckabee (Dexter, Staunton Hill, Space Cowboys, The Funhouse) has been cast in the recurring role of Joe Lee Mickens.  Previous casting calls state that Mr. Mickens is Melinda’s (Sam Merlotte‘s mother) dirt poor, poorly educated husband, who is amazed when he realizes Sam’s link to his wife’s early life.  It will be very interesting to see how this storyline will be played out and how bad they really are based on Sam‘s adoptive parents’ comments from season 2.
