Great new leaked True Blood Season 2 cast photos !

( click photos to enlarge)

I covered HBO’s “True Blood” as long as they were sending me review copies, and as it turned out they only sent me the first five episodes and then left me high and dry. I guess I could give it a second look when it hits DVD and Blu-ray on May 19 and catch up on the eight episodes I missed prior to the upcoming Season 2 premiere on June 14th, but we’ll have to wait an see on that since HBO also never sends me review copies of their TV DVDs and I have so many as is I really only end up buying stuff I already know I want. I am not a huge blind buy consumer.

Nevertheless, “True Blood” is returning to HBO on June 14 and they have sent over ten preview images from the upcoming season including photos of Anna Paquin who plays the lead in the film named Sookie Stackhouse as the story of vampires in Bon Temps, Louisiana unfolds. You also get a look at Alexander Skarsgard (seen in the photo above) who plays Eric Northam, the oldest vampire to be introduced in the series while I was watching. Skarsagard is also rumored to be the star in the upcoming Thor comic book adaptation for Kenneth Branagh in the title role.

There are a few more photos on the site

Die, Vampires, Die: It's Time To Bury The Bloodsucker Trend

Great article from the New York Observer and they go on to talk about Vikings ...*wink*

Vampires don't really live forever—it just feels like they do. Lately, you can't turn on the TV, go to a bookstore, see a movie, or go to a high school without being besieged by vampires and their enchanted human enablers.

On March 25, Variety's Michael Schneider reported that Ian Somerhalder, who played the overly-tweased stipple-bearded Boone on Lost, had been tapped to co-star in an ABC pilot called The Vampire Diaries. According to Variety, the show "centers on a woman who falls for two vampire brothers—one good and one evil."

Add this to the list that includes the just purchased script by Marc Haimes for Elevator Men, which The Hollywood Reporter's Jay A. Fernandez described as "a less romanticized look at the human-vampire interactions"; last week's U.K. release of the delicately named Lesbian Vampire Killers; and the soon-to-be released adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' The Informers.

Can't stand the wait for Sookie book # nine, Dead and Gone ? Maybe try Grave Sight by Charlaine Harris

Kelly on her blog, 'Book Sanctuary' reviewed 'Grave Sight' which is the first book in the Harper Connelly book by Charlaine Harris.. if you are gnawing at your nails waiting for Book Nine of Sookie books maybe try this ...

Grave Sight by Charlaine Harris

No. of pages:
Rating: 5/5
Series: Harper Connelly (Book 1)

: Harper Connelly had a lucky escape when she was hit by lightning: she didn't die. But sometimes she wishes she had died, because the lightning strike left her with an unusual talent: she can find dead people - and that's not always comfortable. Everyone wants to know how she does it: it's a little like hearing a bee droning inside her head, or maybe the pop of a Geiger counter, a persistent, irregular noise that increases in strength as she gets closer. It's almost electric: a buzzing all through her body, and the fresher the corpse, the more intense the buzz. Harper and her brother Tolliver make their living from finding the dead, for desperate parents, worried friends . . . and police departments who have nowhere else to look. They may not believe in her abilities, but sometimes the proof is just too much for even the most sceptical of police chiefs to deny. But it's not always easy for someone like Harper, for the dead *want* to be found - and too often, finding the body doesn't bring closure; it opens a whole new can of worms.

Review: This is the first book I've read by Charlaine Harris, and what a great introduction to someone who I'm sure will become a favourite. I love her style of writing, it's so easy to read, but it keeps you gripped throughout. Harper and Tolliver are great characters, and you feel like you really get to know them during the book. Harper was hit with lightening when she was 15, and since then, she's been able to sense dead bodies and tell what they died from. So she and Tolliver, her brother, travel around the country tracking missing people, for a fee of course. When they go to the Ozarks to find a missing, but believed dead, teenage girl for the county officials, it's just another job...until they get accused of murder. As a result, Harper goes on a mission to find out what's really happening in this small town, with some shocking results.
