If the flurry of casting news over the past couple of days is any indication, Season Three of HBO’s popular series “True Blood” is going to be taking viewers in some new and different directions. Joining the regulars as recurring characters are Theo Alexander as Talbot, an “intensely beautiful” vampire, and Grant Bowler (pictured) as Coot, a menacing biker werewolf.
In addition to being so easy on the eyes, Talbot, the boyfriend of Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare), the vampire king of Mississippi, has an acerbic sense of humor and loves to cook despite vampires’ inherent lack of cooking talents. Not much else was mentioned about Coot except that he’s the ringleader of his biker gang.
Per THR production on the upcoming season kicked off today, but there are still several key new roles yet to be filled, including white trash Debbie, hot Latino orderly Jesus, handsome vampire Franklin, alpha male werewolf Alcid, and hot but trashy Chrystal. Whew, I’m getting a little warm myself with anticipation!
If you’ve read the books the series is based on and know these characters, chime in below with your casting suggestions.
