Fans will be happy and heartbroken by True Blood’s end

Posted by Lynnpd On March - 21 - 2014

ameliaroseblaireTrue Blood actress Amelia Rose Blaire was recently interviewed by Uinterview where she projected a tiny hint about what True Blood’s final season will bring.

During the interview, Amelia also spoke about her character Willa and what its like working with Alexander Skarsgård. She said it was something of a coup for her, as he was not only nice too look at, but provided some humor to their scenes together. Asked to describe him, Blaire called him “goofy.

“He’s really goofy! He’s really goofy and always likes to make a lot of jokes,” she told Uinterview. “So he’s a lot of fun to work with and of course he’s very, very tall. He’s like 6’5” or something, so he’s definitely a figure to behold, but he’s really nice and really down to earth. And he drives a really nice car!”

Although she’s not certain about what will become of her character in True Blood’s final season, she believes that the show itself will end in typical True Blood fashion.

The end of True Blood is going to make fans very happy and heartbroken at the same time,” the actress revealed. “Because that’s what True Blood does best.”

The Vault also provided an exclusive interview with Amelia last summer. Read more about her and her character of Willa by clicking on the image below:

EJ Says: Chris Bauer has an acting resume as long as my arm. He’s worked with some of the greatest actors and directors that there is. But all that aside, Chris Bauer is a very interesting, thoughtful, deep and complex guy. We talk about:

  • His 3 month long planned proposal to his now wife and how he tried talking her out of it immediately after.
  • How True Blood has become an experiment in sociology.
  • How he cursed at Woody Allen during the filming of “Deconstructing Harry” on camera.
  • His take on improv and getting shirtless for an audience.
  • Getting naked on True Blood
  • His struggle with his weight.
  • What Howard Stern thinks of him.
  • Working with Bill Murray.
  • His first meeting with Alan Ball and how that lead to his role as Sheriff Andy Bellefleur on HBO’s TRUE BLOOD.
  • And so much more!!

We laughed a lot. Had some deep moments. I hope you listen, like and share. Thanks!!

Listen and Enjoy.

alexander-skarsgard-022512- (5)The casting has now been confirmed for the upcoming 3D version of “Tarzan” starring Alexander Skarsgård.

The production will begin later this year with “Wolf of Wall Street’s,” Margot Robbie, who will play the part of Jane, Christoph Waltz will be a Belgian soldier who tries to capture Tarzan in exchange for a ransom in diamonds, and Samuel L. Jackson is to be the US Ambassador to the CongoDavid Yates, who made the last four “Harry Potter movies,” will direct.

With shooting due to start, Skarsgård, not surprisingly, is hitting the gym regularly to prepare for playing the loin-clothed one.

The timing is good for what should be the Swedish actor’s major big-screen breakthrough, as his long-running role as True Blood vampire Eric Northman is “sadly” coming to an end.

 

On another, but related topic: Alex’s father, Stellan Skarsgård is now lined up to play the part of the shady oligarch in an upcoming thriller based on John le Carré’s novel “Our Kind of Traitor.”  Ralph Fiennes was originally to play the part, but had to drop out.

 

We congratulate both father and son on landing the roles.

When the three teams, including True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård, took to the South Pole last fall to raise money and awareness for Walking with the Wounded, it was important that each person had something to cuddle when the temperatures dropped. So, each member of the South Pole Allied Challenge was given a teddy bear to keep them warm on those chilly nights, and now those teddy bears could be going home to you! Each one has its own auction on eBay, as well as its own certificate of authenticity, and all proceeds will go to Walking with the Wounded.

So Eric fans, here’s your chance to bid on and win a teddy bear that Alex cuddled with when walking to the South Pole. Go and bid on the Auction here: Alexander Skarsgård Teddy Bear auction on ebay

Below is the first official trailer for Alexander Skarsgård’s upcoming film, “The Giver.” Alex plays the part of Jonas’s father. The film is based on the best selling book and is scheduled to be released in theaters on August 15. Below is a photo of Alex from the trailer. He can be seen twice starting at about 0:26 and 0:34, but don’t blink or you’ll miss him like I did the first time.

The film stars Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgård and yes, even Taylor Swift are all in the Hollywood adaptation of The Giver, which gives junior high school kids one less book they will actually have to read for school.

Based off the book by Lois Lowry, The Giver is set in a utopian future where the people of Earth no longer feel the terrible emotions of their ancestor — no more pain, no more sadness, no more suffering. However, it’s one person’s job to savor all these emotions for the new society, and that person is called The Receiver. Main character Jonas is The Receiver’s new apprentice; suffice to say, the more you learn about the real world, the less utopian it becomes.

Posted by Lynnpd On March - 18 - 2014

Robert Patrick, who has played Alcide’s father on True Blood for several seasons now, is in a new show called “From Dusk Till Dawn.” The show debuted on March 11, but evidently, tonight will be Robert’s debut in the series. The show will be seen on the  El Rey Network.

Robert just tweeted us from his official Twitter account:

He plays the character of Jacob Fuller in the show, a fictional character from the 1996 horror film, by the same name. In the 1996 film, the character was portrayed by Harvey Keitel.

Plot: Jacob Fuller and his two children, Kate and Scott, have been kidnapped by outlaws Seth and Richie Gecko. The Geckos demand that the family sneak the convicts across the border and into Mexico using Jacob’s RV.

After doing this, the Geckos force the family to join them at the Titty Twister, where all hell breaks lose.

Jacob and his family are forced to team up with the outlaws in order to make it out alive. Sadly, Jacob is bitten, but manages to help the others battle the vampires for quite a bit of time before he changes. Upon changing, he is killed by his son, Scott.

Could Carrie Preston be in Good Wife Spinoff?

Posted by Lynnpd On March - 17 - 2014

Last night True Blood’s Arlene appeared again on “The Good Wife.”  Her character, Elsbeth Tascioni has become so popular and because Of the way the plot went in this latest episode, Carrie and others are thinking, could there be a Good Wife spinoff in the future? With the final season of True Blood almost here, it would be nice to see Carrie land a good series. 

thegoodwife

Lockhart/Gardner and Florrick/Agos both wanted to nab Rayna and the $60 million that came with her. The two firms vied for her attention, and Alicia was tasked with really nailing her American Bar Association speech.

In the end, it was Elsbeth Tascioni (returning guest star Carrie Preston) who managed to woo Rayna so much so that the two are starting their own firm together.

“I was surprised when I was reading the script. Of course, I immediately as an actor go, ‘What does that mean for me next season?’ because obviously I want to come back and do more, so I don’t know what that means, but it could be something really fun, to have yet another competitive law firm thrown into the mix,” Preston told E! News. “I don’t really know what that means, but it was pretty cool, and when I really thought about it, it wasn’t really a surprise. Of course Elsbeth would swoop in in her fortuitous way and hit the bull’s-eye.”

Elsbeth celebrated the big news by singing at the piano with Clarke Hayden, played byNathan Lane. But the screechy notes weren’t much of a stretch for Preston who said she “sadly” didn’t have to adjust her singing voice for Elsbeth.

“I was definitely working some of the more comedic bits, but I’m not the strongest of singers, and there I was in front of Nathan Lane having to sing, you know, of all people,” Preston said. “So I was able to use that situation to make the lack of Elsbeth’s talent very apparent.”

But what does this mean for Elsbeth? Preston isn’t sure, but now that True Blood, Preston’s main show, is coming to an end—the final season is filming currently—Preston said she’s game for whatever The Good Wife producers have in mind, be it a spinoff or adding her to the cast permanently. However, there’s been no official talk…yet.

“I think they concentrate on the season at hand, and then we’ll see. I’m hoping that they’ll want to open up a dialogue with me, but you know, there’s lots of things that go into something like that happening, but my fingers are crossed,” Preston told E! News. “I would love to continue playing this character, not only because I love the character, but it shoots in New York and my husband’s there most of the year shooting Person of Interest, and it would just be amazing for us to actually be working in the same city.”
