In the latest news from the casting couch…we have a couple of roles which have been cast for True Blood Season 5! One of them in particular, hails the return of a past character from Season 3!
WARNING: If you don’t want to know – don’t read below!
We’ll share the “return” of an old character first. This was taken from EW.com and this is what they said;
EW has learned exclusively that Academy Award nominee and Emmy winner Alfre Woodard will return as Ruby Jean Reynolds, the schizophrenic mother of Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) last seen in season 3. Ruby Jean was a patient in a local mental hospital and under the care of Jesus (Kevin Alejandro), who later went on to have a tragic romance with Lafayette.
Woodard was nominated for an 2011 Emmy — Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series — for the Blood role. She’s set to appear in episodes 5 and 6 of the HBO series, and possibly more.
Personally, I’m glad to see the return of Lala’s mom. I wonder what kind of trouble or turmoil she’ll create in Lala’s life next?
Next up in the latest news from the casting couch…TVLine.com is reporting this little casting news below.
Tina Majorino has landed a role she can really sink her teeth into.
The Veronica Mars alumna and current Bones co-star has booked a recurring gig on True Blood‘s upcoming fifth season, TVLine has learned exclusively.
She’ll play a key member of the Vampire Authority’s support staff who first appears in Episode 3, which is scheduled to air June 24.
Interesting…I wonder how this support staff will fit into the Vampire Authority storyline? Eric will more than likely be involved with Tina’s character somewhat during the season.
