'True Blood' casts vampires, werewolves and wives for Season Three
There was new casting aplenty for HBO's "True Blood," as the Southern vampire soap began filling supporting roles for its upcoming third season.
Here's what we know:
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Theo Alexander has been cast as Talbot, the vampire boyfriend to Denis O'Hare's Vampire King of Mississippi. In addition, Grant Bowler ("Ugly Betty") has landed a role as Coot, who seems to be both a werewolf and the leader of a biker gang.
Earlier in the week, the trade reported that Marshall Allman (annoying LJ on "Prison Break") will play Tommy Mickens, long-lost brother to Sam Trammell's Sam Merlotte. Also, in a guest role, "The O.C." and "Grey's Anatomy" veteran Shannon Lucio has been cast as Caroline Compton, flashback wife to Stephen Moyer's Bill Compton. The character was played by Amber Dawn Landrum in earlier flashbacks.
Production on the third season of "True Blood" began this week in Los Angeles.
