True Blood Season 3 Spoiler and Casting News: Calling Alcide

December 11, 2009 by  

Bill-Sookie-red-dressMichael Ausiello from is reporting that, although we knew that Alan Ball will be casting the character Alcide for season 3 the search for an actor to play the pivotal part official got started today with the release of the following casting notice:

ALCIDE HERVEAUX: Good-looking, rough-around-the-edges, articulate, heroic, and decent, but not what he seems. He gets along well with Sookie. There’s even an attraction between the two. Very strong recurring.

Another character that True Blood wants to cast is that of the character named HOLLIS who is described to be a fortysomething African-American bouncer in a bar. Despite his scary appearance — he resembles an NFL lineman — he’s a nice guy who knows Alcide well and bursts in to help him when he is getting the crap beaten out of him. He’s suspicious of Sookie and delivers some unexpected bad news to Alcide about his fiancée, Debbie Pelt.

Also Alan Ball is looking for someone to play the character DR. ROBIDEAUX who is Arlene’s old-school obstetrician and is said to be in his 70’s.

TURK is described to be an obnoxious, drunk in a bar who taunts the apparently helpless Sookie.

Then there is the PASTOR who does the eulogy at Eggs’ funeral.

Episode 3 of Season 3 of True Blood will be entitled “It Hurts Me Too” and will be directed by Michael Lehmann and is written by Alexander Woo. Production began last week and is set to return in June.  True Blood fans cannot wait!
