'True Blood's' Marshall Allman says Tommy Mickens 'really just wants love'

In Marshall Allman's own words, his character, shapeshifter Tommy Mickens, on "True Blood" is "bad ass."

From his default bulldog shape to his dare that TV older brother, Sam Merlotte (played by Sam Trammell), throw a punch to officially show he's family, Allman's words couldn't be more on point. But according to the actor, Tommy has a softer side, too.

"He really just wants love honestly," Allman tells Zap2it. "He wants someone he can trust, someone he can depend on, to be like a healthy family. Does he have any idea how that works? Hell no. But does he know how to get what he wants? Probably not, but we shall see."
