True Blood Season 3 Spoiler News: Lafayette’s Love

December 23, 2009 by  

Here is a little True Blood holiday treat. Micheal Ausiello from is giving us a little teasing spoiler for season 3 of True Blood by providing us some details about what we may see happening with our lovable short-order cook Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) in the area of his love life. Michael states that Lafayette will be getting a boyfriend and Alan Ball is quietly searching for a sexy Latino actor in his 30s to play a lust interest for everyone’s favorite Bon Temps citizen.

In previous casting calls this character is not specified as having an encounter with Lafayette, however his description makes him seem like a good candidate! Jesus Velasquez is an attractive Latino male nurse in his 20s-30s. Taking care of people in a nursing home, this young man is good-natured even in the face of occasional racist remarks from his elderly patients. If he is in fact the one that will have a relationship with Lafayette, wouldn’t that be a great contrast to our flamboyant, outspoken fry cook?

So who do you think would be great in the role of Lafayette‘s hot latin lover?
