There are a few castings that have been added to True Blood Season 7 on IMDb.
“The figure” (mysterious bad guy) will be played by Paul Rae, and currently only appears in episode 1.
Episode 5 now has a director and is most likely currently being filmed. There is certainly filming at the Bellefleur mansion this week. There are also a few castings for episode 5, most likely to do with another Bill Compton flashback.
Matthew Holmes will play “Charles Dupont”.
Brian Mulligan will play “Louis Bodehouse”.
Gilbert Owuor will play “Minus”.
Minus was Bill’s father’s yard slave, mentioned in Season 1 and a quick google of Charles Dupont brings up a Charles H. DuPont, who was a Florida lawyer, planter, businessman, and Democratic politician who served as a Florida Supreme Court justice from 1854 to 1868. (I may have completely the wrong guy of course). So Louis Bodehouse is probably an ancestor of Jane’s who was around at the same time.
According to E!Online there is another (probably minor) baddie on his way,and I’m guessing a Sarah Newlin connection.
When the blood-thirsty HBO series returns this summer, brace yourselves for a whole new mess of baddies and troublemakers. One of our favorites is Mr. Gus–he’s a Japan native who has fully embraced the “everything’s bigger in Texas” way of living. The only thing bigger than his lavish, southern lifestyle? His quest for revenge, and trust us when we tell you, you do not want to cross him.
None of this is of course of too much interest to everyone here, but as spoilers this season are turning out to be harder to find than water in the desert, I’m searching out anything I can get!
One possibly more interesting development could mean the return of Hoyt Fortenberry for one final guest appearance. Jim Parrack has tweeted just 2 short words this week.

Will we see Hoyt (re)meet Jason Stackhouse? Or is Jim just teasing?
Please HBO, let’s have something good to chew over very soon. A premiere date and a Sunday promo would be very much appreciated…….
