Following their news of the casting of the Vampire Violet yesterday, TV Line are today reporting another new vampire has now been cast. Don’t peek below if you don’t want to know:
Bon Temps is about to bear witness to quite an anomaly: a vampire with more substance than style.
True Blood has tapped Brothers & Sisters alum Luke Grimes play the recurring role of James, a circa ’70s-made vamp who is smart, spiritual and emotionally deeper than any other bloodsucker we’ve seen before, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Grimes, who spent two seasons on Brothers & Sisters as William Walker’s love child Ryan, is set to debut at the midway point of the HBO hit’s sixth season (which is slated to premiere in June).
