‘True Blood’ Positively Gushes With Casting News

Fans of HBO’s ‘True Blood‘ can count on meeting several new faces – all of them attractive! – during the gothic drama’s third season.

For starters, New Zealander Grant Bowler – aka Wilhelmina’s fugitive lover, Connor Owens, on ‘Ugly Betty‘ – has landed the recurring role of Coot, says The Hollywood Reporter. Coot is the fearsome head of a biker gang called the F— You Crew. (Subtle, right?) Oh, and he’s a werewolf.

Also bringing the pretty this season is Theo Alexander. The Greece-born newcomer will play Talbot, the “intensely beautiful” bloodsucking beau of Mississippi vampire king Russell Edgington (new series regular Denis O’Hare).
