True Blood Casting Scoop! Season 4 Taking Shape!

True Blood Casting Scoop! Season 4 Taking Shape!Last season of the HBO phenomenon known as “True Blood” ended on a bit of an unsatisfactory note that had some fans pleased and others let down. With Season 4 on the way we’re hoping all those wrongs can be corrected.

EW’s The Ausiello Files just checked in with some intriguing casting intel on what to expect next year in terms of new characters. Dig it below.

  • Marnie is a Z-list palm reader who’s painfully aware of what a joke she is — that is, until she comes to be possessed by the spirit of a real witch. Anybody else thinking said sorceress might turn out to be the Hallow character Alan Ball told EW about back in August?
  • Andy’s sister, Portia, is as easy on the eyes as she is sharp in the courtroom. And, since I hear possible portrayers have to be cool with nude scenes, we’re gonna get an eyeful.
  • Naomi is an Asian-American cage fighter who, outside of the ring…er, cage…is hot-’n’-heavy with one of her female competitors. My hunch is that, driven away by brother Sam, Tommy starts putting up his dukes for money instead of his paws.
  • Queen Mab is an elegant beauty who presides over a fantasy land that sounds a lot like the fairy domain into which Sookie (Anna Paquin) keeps being pulled. But, ethereal as her highness may be, she’s also got a temper…
  • Suzanne McKittrick is a Real Housewives type who throws a hootenanny to bond with “her kind.” That “kind,” I’m thinking, being shapeshifters like buttoned-down African-American (and fellow newbie) Emory Broome.
  • So who do you see fulfilling these roles? Any readers of the books happy (or disappointed) about these characters? Let us know below.

    You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

      Is it just me or was the last season of True Blood epically stupid?

      I especially loved how the vampires go on and on about how dangerous werewolves are, this despite the fact that 1 Vampire can kill dozens of them in seconds and that even humans don’t have a lot of trouble doing them in.

      Oh, and did anyone else see the big fat flaws in Eric’s plan to destroy the villain of the piece?

      I hate it when a show breaks it’s own rules. I’ll be passing on season 4.

        Season Three was incredibly stupid. I couldn’t agree with you on that more.

        But I’ll be giving Season 4 a chance, maybe I don’t know seeing the charecters this season is going to have makes me a bit worried..

        All the seasons of True Blood leave me a little disapionted, I keep hoping they’ll get back to the story line and do what should be done, but it seems they just keep getting farther away from the books then closer.

        I’m honestly hoping this Season does something decent with the witch’s and lets Eric and Sookie have the time they got in the books the fans might like Bill better in the show but I think its because Eric really hasn’t gotten the chance to show more then his erogant ass hole side the last few seasons, I really hope to see the whole momory loss thing this season.
