True Blood's Marshall "Tommy Mickens" Allman: 'Half the Fun Is the Ride to the Party'

What's a new season of True Blood without some fresh meat?

In Sunday's Season 3 premiere, audiences will be introduced to Tommy Mickens, Sam Merlotte's shape-shifting younger brother, played by Marshall Allman (Hostage, Prison Break). Of course, new characters come with new drama.

Allman took some time away from the set to talk to Parade.com about being "the new kid in school," breathing life into his wildcard character and why fans should keep a close eye on Sookie, Bill and Eric. Special thanks go to fansite True-Blood.net for providing a few excellent questions for True Blood's new kid.
Were you a fan of True Blood before coming on to the show?
"Yeah, I was. I have a friend who is on the show -- Jim Parrack (Hoyt Fortenberry) -- and I already watched a lot of the first season, and then I just kind of fell off because I'm not that good at following TV shows. But, having said that, I knew what a quality show it was and how great the writing was."
