True Blood's Grant Bowler: Sookie Is "More Special Than You Think"

True Blood is all about werewolves this season — and not the pretty-boy Twilight kind. We're talking vicious, neck-branded neo-Nazis who drink vampire blood to feed their addiction. caught up with Grant Bowler, who plays werewolf pack leader Cooter in seven episodes this season, to find out who Cooter really works for, how far is too far for executive producer Alan Ball, what it will mean for his relationship with Bill (Stephen Moyer) and what's down the road for Sookie (Anna Paquin).
True Blood's Denis O'Hare: The King will "rip your f---ing spine out" What can you tell us about Cooter and his pack?Grant Bowler: Cooter is a joy to play. I play him like a redneck Romeo.

What can we expect between Cooter and Bill now that Bill seems to be cooperating with the King of Mississippi (Denis O'Hare)?Bowler: It starts off professional with them, but it gets personal very, very quickly. I love the relationship that develops between the two. They just hate each others' guts and need each other dead. It's a really strong, fun dynamic to play.
