VIDEO: More True Blood Stars Accept the #IceBucketChallenge

August 22, 2014

Michael McMillian, Will Yun Lee and EJ Scott Dunk Themselves for Charity:

Recently we posted a video of Joe Manganiello (who played werewolf Alcide Herveaux in HBO’s True Blood) participating in the #IceBucketChallenge in a bid to raise awareness and much needed funds for the ALS AssociationALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease) is a fatal neurodegenerative disease that falls into the motor neurone disease family.

Well, since then, more True Blood stars have risen to accept the challenge! Michael McMillian (who played Reverend – and then vampireSteve Newlin), Will Yun Lee (who currently plays Mr. Gus in Season 7) and EJ Scott (who is an honorary True Blood member thanks to his girlfriend Deborah Ann Woll) poured a bucket of icy water over their heads too. You can check out the videos of them below.

Oh, and in case you didn’t notice, Lauren Bowles (who plays True Blood’s Holly Cleary) was nominated by Michael McMillian.

Mr. Gus Will be Played by Will Yun Lee in True Blood Season 7!

May 6, 2014

Finally, HBO’s Newest Villain has a Name:

Will Yun Lee is set to star as Mr. Gus in HBO's True Blood Season 7We can now call Will Yun Lee our next favorite villain in True Blood Season 7. Will Yun Lee is repped by APA and Zero Gravity Management and is best known for his work in The Wolverine, Total Recall and Hawaii Five-0.

There has been much speculation as to how Lee’s character, Mr. Gus will be involved with the final season of HBO’s vampire series since the following information was dropped by E!Online:

He’s a Japan native who has fully embraced the “everything’s bigger in Texas” way of living. The only thing bigger than his lavish, southern lifestyle? His quest for revenge, and trust us when we tell you, you do not want to cross him.

It will be interesting to see how Mr. Gus will tie in with the storyline already set up for Season 7. Will he be a part of the Hepatitis V contamination? With the advent of the panic and desolation in the recently released Season 7 promo video, could he be someone from FEMA perhaps? Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) is a longtime True Blood villain – could he somehow be connected to her? Could he somehow be tied up with Willa Burrell (Amelia Rose Blaire) and her deceased father’s political agenda? Or is this yet another storyline that will reveal itself when True Blood premieres in June?

What are your thoughts on this character? Let us know in the comments below!
