Dishing on Nudity in Season 4 and His Friend James Franco:

True Blood's Jim Parrack (Hoyt)Jim Parrack (Hoyt Fortenberry) recently spoke with New York Magazine about season 4 of True Blood.  While he couldn’t say much he promised that it would be the most shocking season yet saying:

“The things that happen with the relationships between people and creatures are so unpredictable and severe, it’s wild.”

He also tells us that Chris Bauer (Andy Bellefleur) will be a much buffer man than the detective we’ve come to know.  He couldn’t tell us if Chris will have any nude scenes, but our dear Hoyt won’t be taking it all off any time soon.

While he was in New York, Jim hung out with his friend James Franco.  The two became friends back in 2002 when he states that they both felt like outsiders in the Hollywood scene.  He even credits James with helping him straighten out his life saying:

“He was just so honest. You know, I was a young guy, 21 or 22 years old, that was very troubled, and he didn’t mind saying to me, ‘You’ve got to get it together.’ And he wasn’t that much older.”

He also says that his friend’s working habits aren’t just for show.  He says he has a genuine curiosity about life, and values his own, and is just truly interested about life and that is a part of their friendship.  Jim will also have a role in James Franco’s upcoming Sal Mineo biopic.  Shooting for that will begin in May or June.  While James will direct, it is unclear if he will also act in the film.
