Alexander Skarsgard named one of the best dressed men of 2011

Posted in True Blood News on January 12, 2011 by dreamer2827


Though the saying may be that ‘the clothes make the man,’ Alexander Skarsgård (Eric Northman) is one of few men that clothed or unclothed, always looks well-dressed.
Skarsgård was recently named one of the ten Best Dressed Men of 2011 by the British edition GQ. He is in splendid sartorial company in sharing the top ten with George Clooney, Javier Bardem, and Zac Efron, to name but a few.

Besides cutting a fine silhouette in Tom Ford at the 2010 Emmy Awards, Skarsgård has been spotted around Los Angeles rocking pieces by high-end designers including Prada, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Marc Jacobs.

News on Season 4

Posted in True Blood News on January 12, 2011 by dreamer2827


Spoiler alert! Alan Ball, creator of HBO‘s beloved mega-hit True Blood, has confirmed to Michael Ausiello (The Ausiello Files on Entertainment Weekly and EW.com) that “The honeymoon’s over” for Hoyt and Jessica. What exactly does that mean? Are they over for good? We’ll just have to wait and find out in June.

A big storyline this season: Secretly filmed vampire attacks will be going viral, by way of YouTube, effectively throwing yet another wrench into the already strained Vampire/Human relations. Looks like we’ll be seeing a lot more of Nan! You know, Nan Flannigan (Jessica Tuck), the slicked-back hair, severe-looking (and acting) representative of the ever-mysterious “Authority”. The one who leaves everyone shaking in their boots. That one.

Regarding the King of Mississippi, Russell Edgington (played by Denis O’Hare), he is expected back at some point, but whether it will be in Season 4 is uncertain. He has no contract as of yet.

Our favorite kick-ass, no nonsense (yet very feminine and lady-like) vamp, Pam De Beaufort (Kristin Bauer van Straten) gets a new toy. This one happens to like being bitten, is male, and “hot and stupid”. Go Pam!
Sam Merlotte‘s little brother, Tommy Mickens (Marshall Allman) will be receiving “an intriguing offer from a prospector”, and we’ll be introduced to a new character: a Spanish-speaking tough girl, in episodes two through six.

It’s probably safe to say that Season 4 of True Blood is one of the most highly anticipated — Witches, Weres, Shifters, Vamps, Fae, a heated love triangle (possibly a quadrangle?!), and oodles & oodles more. What are you looking forward to?

Yvetta is coming back…

Posted in True Blood News on December 23, 2010 by dreamer2827

At the recent Actors For Oceans event, someone let some True Blood season 4 scoop slip. Natasha Alam, who plays exotic dancer Yvetta, confirmed that she’ll be back for season 4 and possibly “turned into something interesting”. When we last saw Yvetta, she was pissed at Eric for not leaving her anything in his will. Does she return as a woman scorned? Is she seeking revenge? Watch your back, Eric!

Ryan Kwanten Opens Up:

Posted in True Blood News on December 23, 2010 by dreamer2827

You’ve seen practically every inch of Ryan Kwanten as endearingly dim himbo Jason Stackhouse on HBO’s vampire drama True Blood. But there’s more to the 33-year-old Aussie than meets the naked eye — including a wild new role, a younger gay brother, and a surprisingly humble outlook on acting.

You play a wannabe cop on True Blood and a young police officer in Red Hill, an Australian Western now in theaters. Do you get the butch appeal of packing a big gun?

Many little boys fantasize about playing the hero in a traditional shoot-’em-up — a guy who’s quick on the draw. But what really fascinated me about Red Hill was that this guy is full of faults, so it felt like a prequel to John Wayne and Clint Eastwood — before they turned into bad-asses.

Before True Blood, you starred as a lifeguard in the Australian soap Home and Away. Were you aware of gay fans that early in your career?

Yes, they’ve always been very staunch supporters of me. The great thing is that it’s a loyal fan base — they’ll stick with you through thick and thin, and I like that. You can’t buy that kind of loyalty.

I read a story in Star that claimed you purposely keep your love life private in part because you’re so conscious of your gay following. Any truth to that?

Well, it’s in Star, so it’s got to be true. [Laughs] But yeah, and, to be honest, it’s more than my love life. It was Einstein who once said, “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.” We almost know too much about far too many actors in this day and age — to the point where it becomes harder and harder to see them as a character. So I’ve always tried to maintain somewhat of an air of mystery.

Were you always comfortable with the idea of male admirers?

Oh, yeah. Australians are a very open-minded society, and I come from a very liberal, open family, so it’s something that I’ve embraced from the get-go. My youngest brother, Lloyd, is gay.

Tell me about him.

He’s a doctor, so he got every ounce of intelligence in the family. He was probably about 18 when he came out, and I can wholeheartedly tell you that from the day that he did, he was a changed man for the better. The sheer beauty of who he is really came through.

Some teasers about Season 4:

Posted in True Blood News on December 23, 2010 by dreamer2827

Kristin at E! Online has some pretty minor True Blood season 4 spoilers for us this week, but at least she knows they’re minor.

Monica: How about some True Blood scoop?

Stop the presses! ‘Cause we just caught up with Sam Trammell and he told us everything about what’s going to happen in the new season. Read only if you really want to know: “We’ve been [shooting] for about two weeks. We’ve gotten two scripts and it’s really cool. I’m really psyched about it. My character gets to do some very cool things. And it’s different—some things have happened that have changed things, so I think the viewers will be excited. Alan [Ball] likes to keep everybody on their toes. It’s always fun just getting the scripts and reading them, it’s like…I was going to say crack cocaine but I’ve never had it!” Got all that? This season will be “cool” and “different” and “things have changed” and Sam is not a crackhead in real life. You’ll still watch True Blood even though you know the entire season now, won’t you?

Tony: Anything on True Blood?

Sookie’s (Anna Paquin) mansion has been a shambles ever since Maryann used it as the center of her freaky Dionysian cult (remember the meat sculpture?), but insiders tell me they’re finally repainting the house and repairing all the damage from the keggers held at Maryanne’s behest. Mmmm…sounds like Sookie might be settling back into domestic bliss? Hey, Martha Stewart, how about a guest spot?

Deborah Ann Woll- 30 Sexiest Stars of 2010

Posted in True Blood News on December 23, 2010 by dreamer2827

DEBORAH ANN WOLL (True Blood)
On a show as sexually charged as True Blood is, it can be tough to stand out. Unless you’re Deborah Ann Woll, whose innocent(ish) redheaded babyvamp Jessica steals the show, week after week.
