The “Terminator” Joins True Blood

In the latest News From The Casting Couch:  True-Blood.net is reporting that Robert Patrick (Terminator 2, X-Files) will join the cast of True Blood in season 5!

WARNING: If you don’t want to know – don’t read below!

This is what they said;


True-Blood.net has confirmed with HBO that Robert Patrick will guest star on True Blood season 5 as  Jackson Herveaux, Alcide’s father. We’ll meet him in episode 5.09, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”, when we flashback to when Alcide and Debbie Pelt were teenagers in the 1980s. Back then, Jackson was “powerful, inspiring, and heroic”, but in present day he’s pretty much given up on life. He’ll be a recurring guest star.

Robert has a lengthy list of credits, including Terminator 2, The X-Files, and the upcoming ABC drama Last Resort (I’ve seen the pilot; it’s on my Must See list for Fall).

Now, I don’t know about you…but Robert looks NOTHING like Alcide. Maybe Alcide looks more like his mother?

  1. I’m Loving this!!! Robert will make a wonderful Werewolf!!!
    he’s a strong actor who can cop an attitude!!!!
    Can’t wait to see him in the show!!!

  2. I was gonna say that I don’t see the resemblance at all, but I saw another picture of Robert with a beard. If he keeps that look for the show, it makes a little more sense.

  3. Robert Patrick is great. He revived The X Files when it was flagging towards the end.

  4. Robert Patrick is ok, but I wouldn’t have ever thought to cast him as Alcides’ father. Not a crumb of resemblance between them……I just don’t know, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

    I guess they are pulling out all the stops with all these top name stars being cast, I guess they are trying to save the show that way. ?

  5. I love Robert since Terminator 2 so i am happy he will join the cast .

  6. I’ve never seen anything this actor has done, but I know I am absolutely and totally uninterested in anything that remotely has to do with Alcide.
