True Blood Season 5 ! Wow !

True Blood‘s fourth season hasn’t even gotten underway yet and already Alan Ball is making plans for a likely fifth — big plans.
Sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that tube MVP Scott Foley is joining the cast in a major recurring role that will kick off in the Season 4 finale and, assuming the show gets renewed (duh, it will), continue into Season 5.
The Felicity and Unit alum — who spent a good part of last season playing husband to Kim Raver’s Teddy on Grey’s Anatomy — will tackle the role of Patrick, a tough and ruggedly attractive old army buddy of Terry’s (Todd Lowe) who pays him a visit.


True Blood Premieres Sunday: Hear from the Author, Charlaine Harris

With a new season of TRUE BLOOD around the corner, Charlaine Harris, author of the chart-topping DEAD RECKONING, among many other bestselling books, recently sat down with SciFi Book Club Senior Editor Rome Quezada at New York City's Standard Hotel during BookExpo America. DEAD RECKONING is the latest installment in The Sookie Stackhouse urban fantasy series about a telepathic waitress who works in a bar in the fictional Northern Louisiana town of Bon Temps, the basis for the hit HBO series, TRUE BLOOD.

Charlaine and Rome talked about Sookie Stackhouse—including the upcoming SOOKIE STACKHOUSE COMPANION—Harris's thoughts on TRUE BLOOD, the future of the series, and who some of her favorite science fiction authors are. Here's an excerpt onCharlaine's feelings on the first few episodes of TRUE BLOOD:

I think they got the spirit of the books exactly right. I knew Alan got me. I mean, we're both Southern people. I had seen his previous work so I knew he got the mixture of horror and comedy that I feel I'm expressing in the books. I like him. I think he's a genius.

‘True Blood’s’ Stephen Moyer: Sookie and Eric romance will be ‘great for the show’

LA Times is really doing great interviews ..

If you’re talking about “True Blood,” it’s the inevitable question that arises — Team Bill or Team Eric? The vampires duel for the affections of telepathic cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) on the HBO series adapted from Charlaine Harris‘ bestselling novels, and each has his loyal core of supporters. But Stephen Moyer, who plays Southern gentleman vampire Bill Compton and is married to Paquin, insists that, off screen, there’s no animosity between Alexander Skarsgard, the towering Swedish actor who portrays Viking Eric Northman, and himself. In fact, he believes that the romance that might be brewing between the two blonds could inject new life into the already vibrant show, which returns for its fourth season June 26. Moyer recently spoke to Hero Complex contributor Gina McIntyre about the appeal of the Alan Ball-created series and the enduring appeal of all things vampire — even “Twilight” — hinting, too, about what audiences might expect from Bill in the coming weeks.

IFC Midnight Unleashes Belgian Vampires

If you thought Belgian Waffles were tasty, wait until you sink your teeth into the latest horror comedy on its way courtesy of IFC Midnight called Vampires. Sugar coating and syrup are completely optional. Dig it!
From Belgian director Vincent Lannoo, Vampires is being heralded as "Spinal Tap meets The Munsters, Benelux-style!" Look for it nationwide on demand from IFC Midnight, via Comcast, Cox, Cablevision, Time Warner, and Bright House starting July 1st.
In the hilarious, satirical 'Vampires', a documentary film crew introduces us to husband and wife Georges and Bertha and their children Samson and Grace, a family of vampires living in suburban Belgium. They feed on illegal immigrants and former prostitutes (referred to as "meat") and attend gatherings with other vampires in the same district. Georges is a bit creepy, Bertha a little unhinged, and Grace is trying to kill herself (which, as an immortal vampire, she can't), but otherwise they seem like a normal family. But when the partying son Samson is caught having sex with the wife of the district vampire leader, the family is exiled (under Vampire Law, handed down from Count Dracula) to Canada, where a vampire's life is a lot less protected.
