A woman who is comfortable being completely naked and playing a corpse. There will be extensive body make up, as well as fake blood to imply you were killed by vampires. This scene takes place in 1905, so they are looking for a woman who has not had a breast job or ANY plastic surgery. They are also looking for a woman who is Not a size zero. Women back then were definitely more curvy. Having a Belly is great for this one. Dress size between 8-14. Looking for a Character woman. The more unattractive the picture, the better.

A very funny featured bit. A lady sitting in a diner, that the leads will be talking about. They refer to her as Manic depressive and crazy. The more charactery, the better. So looks like we’ll be having a flashback from 1900′s, and even if I’m not sure about Kristin Bauer’s sizes, it could very well refer to the flashback where we learn how Pam became a vampire

Vampires for Guys-Dedicated to the manly appreciation of vampire fiction

If I resurrect the radio show this summer ( pun intented !) I'd like to have on Vampire guy!

I just reviewed a book in the “Thrall” series by Adams and Clamp. You can read it here. It really raised the question of what is meant by “vampire”. The bad guys in the Thrall series are vampire parasites. They attach themselves to the nervous systems of human hosts and take over. The concept reminds me of the aliens in Robert Heinlein’s “The Puppet Masters” which I enjoyed many years ago. They also remind me of “The Borg” in Star Trek: Next Generation.
So what’s the problem? The concept is based on other things that I’ve liked. And yet, are we still talking about “vampires”? The authors like to refer to the bad guys as vampire parasites and they get transferred to the hosts by biting. But I get the feeling that the authors are trying to trick me. Vampire fiction is hot, parasite fiction isn’t.

Denis the Menace-Getting down to earth with one of the scariest men on television

God, I sure hope everyone is watching American Horror Story . It's by far the best thing on TV since a  wierd little vampire show about a telepathic barmaid started a few years back ;-) !

Meeting Denis O'Hare should be scary as hell. But today, in the back of homo-hotspot Saint Felix in West Hollywood on his day off, O'Hare doesn't project the eeriness he does as a horny "True Blood" vamp and mysteriously deformed man who just suffocated a potential homebuyer on "American Horror Story."
So far during the debut season of the smash FX show, O'Hare, who plays Larry Harvey, has dosed a house in gasoline, killed the-man-of-the-house's mistress and fought fervently for a home that's become a tough sell - and not just because the economy is sucking.
"Murder House," as it's called, is a freaky L.A. residence with a dark past and a new family: the Harmons, a threesome hopeful for a new start. But what's up with the neighbors, including Jessica Lange's crazy super-mom Constance? And who's this Larry guy and why is this house so important to him?
O'Hare leans back after taking a sip of his cranberry/orange/seltzer water concoction - his "incredibly demanding diva drink" - and tells us. "I don't think he's evil. He's acting out of a particular desire for something. For me, all characters have a justification for their behavior; they always think that what they're doing is necessary for a reason. Even Phantom of the Opera has a real reason: He was in love with someone, he was scarred, he wants love and revenge."
