'True Blood' Season 3 Love Fest Continues With A New 'Southland' Boyfriend For Lafayette

From MTV

While Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård), Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), her dimwitted brother Jason (Ryan Kwanten) and her best friend Tara (Rutina Welsey) are all getting their love on in the upcoming third season of "True Blood," they aren't the only characters with new romantic interests on the way.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, everybody's favorite cross-dressing short order cook Lafayette Reynolds (Nelsan Ellis) is the latest to find love on "True Blood." The foul-mouthed antihero and occasional drug pusher is set to fall for Jesus, a young Latino orderly played by "Southland" star Kevin Alejandro.

In "True Blood," Jesus is an orderly that is taking care of Lafayette's mother Ruby Jean, who will be played by the previously confirmed Alfre Woodard.

Can't wait to see Lafayette have a
love interest and hope he is feeling
better this season.

I can't help it, I have to say this, I have to get it out. I hope you don't mind, Dallas.

I'm disappointed that they're calling this actor Latino. He's got the bluest eyes and the fairest skin and hair of any Latino I've ever seen.

I wanted a Latino-looking Latino for this role.

Nothing personal against the actor, of course, he's lovely and I'm sure he'll be great. It's just that this doesn't work to satisfy my Latino craving. Not at all.

Well i am not disappointed he looks
Latino to me,he could be 1/2 Latino,
and he can wear contacts.I think AB
is doing a good job in finding some
one who would fit the character,but
some times the story line is a little
different than how i think it should
be but i don't get paid to tell him
what he can do,so i just wait and
see.So far i just love the show,hope
it will last at least 8 years.(Dallas
and Sharon and any one else that live
Texas please be extra careful as
there is a rapeist out there some
