Last season ended with the accidental death of Eggs, Tara’s boyfriend. So what’s in store for Rutina Wesley‘s character? A mysterious vampire lover named Franklin Mott who will be played by James Frain (The Tudors, 24)
Another addition to Season 3 comes by way of actress Lindsay Pulsipher (The Beast) in the role of Crystal described as “a mysterious and haunting beautiful young woman who shares an ‘electric connection’ with Jason [Ryan Kwanten].” Haven’t we all learned that mysterious and electric mean supernatural and sexytime? Wonder what kind of supernatural she’ll be!
This one was unexpected Joe Manganiello who had a recurring role on One Tree Hill as Brooke’s (Sophia Bush) love interest has been cast as the “hot and sexy alpha male werewolf”, Alcide Herveaux who we think is supposed to be quite naughty in the books. We do like him though. Who else can sexy face stare like that?
Of course we do have to reflect on Tara’s alcoholic mother’s new turn to the faith. Will she have a certain someone as well? Apparently she will in the form of a certain Reverand Daniels to be played by Gregg Daniel. He will play a church leader that Tara’s alcoholic mother turns to for “comfort.” LOL
Lafayette was considerably less Lafayette last season, a lot of his pizazz disappeared! But apparently he might just get it back with a boyfriend! Though Alan Ball has not chosen the actor for this yet apparently he is “quietly searching for a sexy Latino actor in his 30s to play a lust interest for everyone’s favorite same-gender-lovin’ blood dealer” Ball confirmed in the summer that viewers would see a more “vulnerable” Lafayette in season 3. He seemed pretty vulnerable last season. Bring back pizazz Lafayette!
Season 3 looks exciting though especially with all these yummy treats but seriously when are they going to cast someone Chinese for more than one episode and/or Indians? The two biggest populations in the world and you couldn’t find one to fit into the “Blood Dream”?
Anyway, here’s hoping this season doesn’t rely on sexytime and extended storyline stretching!
