Last nights full episode isn't up yet but it will be here soon:
The resident lothario of HBO's True Blood, Jason Stackhouse, isn't what you'd call a deep thinker, but the actor who plays him, Australian Ryan Kwanten, says assuming the role of such a glorious dimwit calls for some interesting acting techniques.
"I pride myself on my half-sentences, that's how I get by," he told PEOPLE with a laugh at Tuesday's grand opening of the Katsuya L.A. Live Restaurant at the Nokia Theater Complex. "It's always, dot-dot-dot after everything that I say, it just makes things easier. I've always loved the notion that stupidity won't kill you, it will just make you sweat. So, I think that Jason lives in this perpetual state of sweating."
But Kwanten, 32, stays mum on rumors that his take on Jason Stackhouse is based on our former president.
Fangbangers, take note: True Blood brings down the curtain on its hellraising' second season this weekend, on HBO.
And make no mistake about it. This has been a hell of a season - pun intended - for what is suddenly TV's most addictive, adrenalin-fuelled serial thriller.
There are so many reasons to admire Alan Ball's allegory about life, love and timeless longing, it's hard to know where to begin.
So why not start with the music?
I finally got a chance to catch up on unwatched episodes the other night - True Blood is a show that must be seen at night to be truly appreciated - when it suddenly occurred to me. The so-called exit songs - the songs that play over the end credits at the end of each episode - are absolutely brilliant. They're brilliantly chosen, and they often have a lot to say about the episode we've just seen. As chosen by Ball and his music supervisor, Gary Calamar, they're like end scenes in-and-of themselves.
The one that jumped out at me - or got under my skin, if you prefer - was New World in My View, as performed by Sister Gertrude Morgan and King Britt, which closed the Aug. 23 episode.
