Even though we’re just ten days away from the next season of HBO’s hit vampire series “True Blood”‘s premiere, some more casting news has made its way online, and we’ve got the scoop on who’s next to put the bite on!
TVLine reports that Napoleon Dynamite star, “Veronica Mars” alumna and current “Bones” co-star Tina Majorino (pictured) has booked a recurring gig on “True Blood”‘s upcoming fifth season. She’ll play a key member of the Vampire Authority’s support staff who first appears in Episode 5.03, which is scheduled to air June 24.
The 12-episode fifth season of “True Blood” will kick off Sunday, June 10th, at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) with Episode 5.01, “Turn! Turn! Turn!”:
Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) struggle with the aftermath of Tara’s (Rutina Wesley) shooting, while also cleaning up after Debbie Pelt. Meanwhile, Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgård), cleaning up a mess of their own, are visited by the Vampire Authority, one of whom is Nora (Lucy Griffiths), a woman from Eric’s past. In search of the missing Marcus, Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) werewolf pack comes after Sam (Sam Trammell). With Bill away, Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) enjoys her new freedom by partying with local college kids; Jason (Ryan Kwanten) is visited by the recently turned Rev. Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian); Terry’s (Todd Lowe) PTSD is reignited by Patrick Devins (Scott Foley), an old Iraq War buddy; and Alcide turns up at Sookie’s to warn her about the recently resurfaced Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare). Written by Brian Buckner; directed by Daniel Minahan.
