BEWERE TRUE BLOOD
In the latest in a series of promotional posters for the hit vampire drama True Blood, HBO is hinting at things — namely werewolves — to come. Joe Manganiello has signed on to play werewolf Alcide Herveaux, a season 3 love interest for Anna Paquin‘s Sookie Stackhouse. In the books by Charlaine Harris that the show is based on, Alcide helps Sookie search for her beloved vampire beau Bill Compton (played by Stephen Moyer), who went missing at the end of season 2. Sookie isn’t the only one getting a love interest. Southland star Kevin Alejandro is joining the cast as well to play Jesus, who will catch the eye of Lafayette, Bon Temps flashy short-order cook. Could he be another wolf in sheep’s clothing?
This poster may give us a taste of what the werewolves on True Blood will look like (in wolf form, we’ve already seen what they look like in man form) but a new promo video, also released this week, gives us a real peek at what they will look like.
