Ready for tomorrow night? I know I am! Two more Bill stills of episode 4.09 thanks to LifeIsUnique.
Lynn and I are doing the happy dance!
Since the fundraiser for Facing the Atlantic kicked off on March 4 with the first auction, a total of 10,000 has been raised!
The rowers Berie Portal and James Cash are thrilled with all the support they have received from all over the world. Stephen Moyer is very happy with the support and the result.
A big THANK YOU to all who have contributed. We applaud you!
The 10,000 were raised with the combined efforts of The Vault, AllStephenMoyer.com and SimplyMoyer.com.
Bertie and James will start their heroic row across the Atlantic on December 4th and since it will take them about 60 days to get to the other side, so we still have plenty of time to add some more coins to those 10,000. Are you in?
SimplyMoyer is doing a giveaway at the moment, visit their website for more info and we’ll be doing another auction for Facing the Atlantic next week. And there is lots more coming!
You too can give to Facing the Atlantic and support Stephen Moyer’s charity by making a direct donation to Facing The Atlantic here http://www.justgiving.com/Facingtheatlantic
Please note: add the code TB4FTA (True Blood for Facing The Atlantic) to the note of your donation so we can keep track of how much was donated by True Blood / Stephen Moyer fans.
True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård will be on the cover of September’s, Wonderland’s “Priceless” issue which celebrates all the things that money can’t necessarily buy – specifically: talent, style, taste and supreme luxury.
Cover stars Kirsten Dunst and Alexander Skarsgård take the lead, talking sex, danger, nudity and apocalypse in light of their starring roles in Lars Von Trier’s epic Melancholia.
The Priceless issue is available to purchase starting August 26. Below is an image of Alex’s cover.
“I’m absolutely disappointed with the portrayal of Marnie,” said one witch – and professor of biology at a college in New England – who goes by the magickal name Taarna RavenHawk.
“When Marnie gives up her ‘power within,’ which is a witch’s ability to practise the craft without harming others, it allows possession by Antonia who becomes the controlling entity. Marnie lets it happen. It’s unconscionable a witch would act this way.”
Elaanie Stormbender, a witch and mother of five who lives in Jackson, Miss., said all the members of the small community of witches to which she belongs are displeased with Marnie’s behaviour. “When witches invoke a spirit, they take precautions and retain full control to banish,” she said. “Marnie didn’t stay in control, so she’s entirely to blame for giving herself over to being possessed.”
Marnie’s behaviour also feeds into some people’s fears about witches tampering with forces beyond their control, and the character’s recklessness only reinforces this fear, Stormbender said.
“Ethical witches communicate with the dead, not bring them back to life. Crossing these lines was very grave and not something any of us would advocate. She went overboard,” said RavenHawk.
And all this time I thought that what is dead remains dead, but apparently necromancers do walk among us.
Alan Ball told Pedestrian.tv which TV shows he doesn’t want to miss.
“Well right now I’m watching Breaking Bad, I won’t miss it. I love Breaking Bad. I love Mad Men. I’m a huge Game Of Thrones fan. There’s a show on Comedy Central called Workaholics about three loveable loser slacker dork assholes that makes me laugh like nothing else since South Park. And I just recently started watching this Australian show called Rake…I gotta say I’m pretty intrigued by it. I just watched an episode where a former prostitute was telling this girl that she needed to forgive her father for having a three way which included a dog. People can be good parents you know? Everyone has something about them that’s weird but it doesn’t mean they’re not good people. That’s my kind of show.”
Below are three new promo videos for the next episode of True Blood, 4.00 ‘Let’s Get Out of Here’. First we see Jessica, then Hoyt invaded by the possessed Lafayette and finally, Tommy and Marcus meet.
Steven Soderbergh’s in the process of making a film about male strippers currently called, “Magic Mike” and True Blood’s Joe Manganiello is in final talks to join the flick that already stars Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey and Matt Bomer.
Manganiello will play Big Dick Richie, a role that is sure to require the ripped actor to drop trou at one point or another.
The flick will feature Tatum as the title character, a veteran stripper who mentors a younger dancer (I Am Number Four‘s Pettyfer) in the art of hustling. McConaughey will portray a former stripper who now owns the club, called Xquisite, where Tatum’s character works.
The movie will mark a reunion, of sorts, for Manganiello and Bomer – two former school chums who just worked together on an episode of White Collar. The True Blood werewolf shed the extra hair to play a villain on the USA drama. His episode will air when the series returns in January.
Meanwhile, Manganiello is expected to remain gainfully employed over at HBO, which just ordered a fifth season of True Blood. The current season ends on Sept. 11.
Magic Mike will start shooting on Sept. 14 for a 2012 release.
True Blood’s Jim Parrack plays the lovable, and sometimes gullible human, Hoyt Fortenberry. He’s a loyal friend to Jason Stackhouse and up until Season 3 was a virgin still living with his mama. All that changed when Hoyt met Jessica Hamby, the new baby vampire. Hoyt is trying to live a simple life in Bon Temps, but with Jessica as his girlfriend, that is kind of difficult and in the last episode of True Blood we saw the couple break up.
New York Magazine recently spoke with the Jim about what’s next for his character, his dream-sequence sex scene with Ryan Kwanten, and the movie he shot with his real-life best friend, James Franco.
Did you have any inkling that Hoyt and Jessica were headed for all this domestic trouble?
The general rule is to not jump into moving in with whoever you’re nutty for. But, you know, I was in a bad relationship, and the day I got out of it, I moved in with Ciera, and she ended up becoming my wife. Then again, I wasn’t facing issues like, “My mother is trying to kill my girlfriend.” [Laughs.] Now Hoyt and Jessica’s issues are more like, “I’m hungry. Where’s my food?”
Or in Jessica’s case, “Who’s my food?” But, really, why can’t Hoyt make his own food?
If you went off and worked hard and came home to another person whose only obligation was to watch TV and enjoy herself, things might go badly there, too. She knows I have to eat, too, so couldn’t she make some effort? [Laughs.]
Hey — she’s pulling the night shift at Merlotte’s. And she’s keeping a video blog. Where’s yours?
I met some fans who said, “Please start Twittering!” They even walked me through it, but I’m terrible at it. I’m so bad at keeping it up. I forget how to use it. And I’m not very savvy: I try to send a private message, and it goes out to everybody.
That could be embarrassing. Though probably not as embarrassing as making a cameo in Jason Stackhouse’s sex dream?
I still haven’t seen that, but to play the cowgirl straddling my buddy? [Laughs.] That was a very interesting scene to shoot, to say the least.
Once the inevitable happens between Jason and Jessica, will we see a darker side to Hoyt?
Well, Hoyt’s father is dead and gone. His mother is dead to him. So he only has two people left: the love of his life and his best friend. And if they’re gone, what is there? That’s the kind of thing people kill people over, or destroy their own lives over. And Hoyt is somewhere between those two poles. He has nothing now. People took him for granted and misused his love. So I think we’re just barely scratching the surface of how dark he can go.
Think he could take Jason in a fight? I mean, you’re pretty big, and yet here you are playing the “sensitive” guy.
It’s crazy, right? But there’s something about people who are so loving that when they snap, it’s no joke. There are definitely some volatile moments coming up. It’s not going to be pretty.

True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård is still shooting What Maisie Knew in New York City and continues his team up with a young child actress in the film. Alex plays Maisie’s step-father, Julianne Moore’s new husband. Since he was a child actor himself, it would seem that he’s especially in tune to making a film set fun and interesting for kids.
Below is a video from the other day, when he was playing with the young girl in between takes and set-ups. Also below are some additional photos from the set.
