'Twilight' veteran vamps on HBO's 'True Blood'
In an amazing feat of thespian versatility, Christopher Heyerdahl is going from playing an ancient vampire in the "Twilight Saga" to playing an ancient vampire on "True Blood."
Heyerdahl will play the role of Dieter Braun, a powerful bloodsucker in the Authority's intelligence arm, according to Deadline.com.
Twi-hards will recognize him as the Volturi's Marcus in "New Moon," and the two parts of "Breaking Dawn."
But Heyedahl doesn't always play vampires -- he also appeared on the CW’s "Supernatural" as a demon. However, he also co-stars on AMC's "Hell on Wheels" (pictured) as a regular ol' human being.
Season five of "True Blood" will premiere this summer on HBO.
