WARNING: If you don’t want to know – don’t read below!
Here’s the latest News From The Casting Couch!
Start Date: January 2013
Location: Los Angeles
[BEN] Mid 20s to mid 30s. Ultra charming, ultra handsome. Needs to feel like the kind of guy women and men are completely drawn to, but also needs to possess a low-key quality, a southern gentility, that Sookie would find familiar and comfortable. His dark side, however, is dark, dark, dark…SERIES REGULAR. ONE-YEAR DEAL.
[MACKLYN] CAST (RUTGER HAUER) A mysterious figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason. Sinister, at first blush…
[GOVERNOR OF TEXAS] Exactly what you’d expect. Rick Perry. Handsome, a little slick, a politician. He is a warmonger…VERY, VERY STRONG RECURRING
[GOVERNOR OF TEXAS' DAUGHTER] Strong woman, 20s, pretty. She first appears fearful but, we could come to find out she is quite tough. …VERY, VERY STRONG RECURRING
Start Date: Approx. Mid January 2013
[NICOLE JANNSEN] Bi-Racial (African American / Caucasian) Mid 20s. A true bleeding heart. She’s not at all concerned with money, she’s concerned with the common good and doing what’s right. Probably went to Bryn Mawr and drives an old Saab. Life hasn’t beaten her down yet. She and her band of well-meaning liberal advocates model themselves after the civil rights activist “Freedom Riders” of the Sixties. A do-gooder to the core, Nicole’s naive optimism is charming but ultimately vaguely idiotic and dangerous…SERIES REGULAR
[CREIGHTON BURRELL] Governor of Louisiana (Late 40s-60s) A classic good ol’ boy politician. Governor Burrell has despised vampires since his wife ran off with one, leaving him as a single father to their only daughter, Ali. Governor Burrell is a politically savvy and perhaps overly ambitious fella who tends to let his personal aspirations overshadow his humanity…SERIES REGULAR.
TRUE BLOOD, Episode #601, “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”
Writer: Raelle Tucker
Director: Stephen Moyer
[AUTHORITY GUARD #1] This armed and fanged Authority guard vamps into the AHO Control Room and sees something he can’t believe…CO-STAR
[OFFICER HARTZELL, OFFICER RUSCIO] MALE, 30S – 40S. These two gruff looking Caddo Parish sheriff deputies politely come to Sam’s house…CO-STAR SUBMIT ALL ETHNICITIES
These are the “official” casting calls sent out from the production company – thanks to Bookies ♥ True Blood on Facebook!
As you can see, Stephen Moyer (Bill) will be directing the first episode of the season. Before you get excited that it might mean less Bill (or Billith) time onscreen…it doesn’t mean anything. He will probably still have more than enough screentime for us.
Please note: There is an ethnic change to Nicole Jannsen.
Not sure if the Governor of Texas is the same as Governor of Louisiana…but they both have a daughter mentioned in casting.
