True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten appeared for an interview on “Extra” with Maria Menounos at Universal Studios Hollywood on February 17, 2014 in Universal City, California.
We are estimating that True Blood Season 7 will begin airing in mid June, probably June 15, according to our calculations. For the official date, we will have to wait though until it is confirmed by HBO.
Here’s what we know so far about the season:
The premiere, as well as the entirety of season 7, will center on the idea of whether or not humans and vampire can get along with each other.
Jessica’s love interest James has been replaced with another actor after Luke Grimes left the show. Nathan Parsons has taken on the role.
Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) will be getting a new boyfriend, who is described as “insanely good-looking.”
The final season will spend more time with the original cast members in Bon Temps rather than spreading out into multiple story lines and locations.
Showrunner Brian Buckner said that the final season will feature several “complicated three-way, four-way relationships” as the vampires have begun feeding.
Two True Blood stars, Carrie Preston and Amelia Rose Blaire have given a few further hints about the show, even if they are small ones:
Carrie Preston was interviewed by Zap2it and she was asked if she trusted the writers, she said:
“I always trust the writers,” Preston tells us. “Obviously the show has done really well because they’ve created this universe and these characters and they’ve married them with the actors, and so it’s been such a great experience and I would never second guess them at this point. I’m like, ‘Alright, bring us on home.’”
And, finally, listen to Amelia Rose Blaire as she is interviewed by The Global Dispatch. Amelia recaps Season 6 and give some clues about Season 7 during her interview:

Watch the video interview below:
True Blood’s Carrie Preston attends the Custo Barcelona and Nicole Miller fashion shows during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014 at The Salon at Lincoln Center on February 7 & 9, 2014 in New York City.
Starring Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth, the movie recounts the tragic true story of three missing boys in the religious community of Memphis, Ark., and the frenzied rush to justice that condemned three teenagers to prison for a horrific crime. The West Memphis Three — Damien Echols, Jesse Misskelley Jr., and Jason Baldwin — were convicted in 1994 of murdering the three boys, in part because of hyped suspicions that the trio were satanists. Doubts about the three men’s guilt were widespread, though, and their plight became acause célèbre that resulted in several documentaries that shed new light on the case.
Stephen Moyer plays the part of John Fogleman in the film. Witherspoon plays the mother of one of the victims, but her anguish gives way to doubts as community fears and hysteria gain momentum leading up to the trial. Firth plays Ron Lax, the private investigator who becomes suspicious of the community’s rush to judgment and pokes holes in the evidence used to convict the teenagers.
Below is a photo of Stephen Moyer in the role of the prosecuting attorney, John Fogleman.

There are at least two opportunities to catch a performance of True Blood’s Russell Edgington, Denis O’Hare this week. First, he will guest star on FOX’s “The Rake”and his film, “Dallas Buyer’s Club” has been released on DVD, Blu-Ray and Amazon Instant Video.
Denis will appear on “The Rake” as Graham Murray an economic advisor. The synopsis for the show reads as follows:
Reeling from the death of his father, Ben asks Keegan to take over the case of Graham Murray (guest star Denis O’Hare), the mayor’s top economic advisor who is accused of murdering and eating the remains of a young accountant. Although Ben thinks this will never go to trial, Keegan is determined to prove Murray’s innocence, after he finds out interesting details surrounding the alleged victim’s death. Meanwhile, Keegan has legal troubles of his own and Mikki makes a decision about her career in the all-new “Cannibal” episode of RAKE airing Thursday, Feb. 13 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
“DALLAS BUYERS CLUB”
Next, you can see Denis in his part as Dr. Sevard in the 2014 Academy Award nominee for best picture, best actor and best supporting actor in “Dallas Buyer’s Club.” The film has just been released on DVD and Blu-Ray and can also be seen streaming on Amazon. Click on the links below to choose your medium.
Focus Featured describes Denis in his part:
Denis O’Hare, who moves with remarkable grace between stage, screen and TV, has shown up in five different Focus Features films in roles as diverse the actor himself. Most recently he appeared as Dr. Sevard, the stubborn, some might say arrogant, doctor, directing the AZT trials that Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey) originally signs up for, and then rejects. In some ways, O’Hare plays against type here. Rather than HIV being a clinical issue, the AIDS epidemic has been all too personal for O’Hare, who lost a lover in 2000 to the disease. But O’Hare finds a truth in the character, especially one that reflects the frightening historical period which DALLAS BUYERS CLUB chronicles.
If you haven’t seen, Dallas Buyers Club, you’re in for a treat, Denis is great in the film just like the main characters. Buy it or rent it at Amazon below.
True Blood’s Eric, Alexander Skarsgård will star in the upcoming Warner Brothers film, “Tarzan” and will play the legendary title character who was orphaned as a baby and raised in the jungle before he returns to London.
Warner Bros. has officially started pre-production on a new live-action 3D “Tarzan” movie that will also star Margot Robbie, Samuel L. Jackson and two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz, the studio announced Tuesday.
David Yates, who directed the last four “Harry Potter” blockbusters, will direct from a screenplay based on the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Jerry Weintraub (WB’s “Ocean’s” trilogy) will produce with David Barron and Alan Riche, while Peter Riche will also be involved in a producing capacity.
WB’s domestic distribution president Dan Fellman also announced that “Tarzan” will hit U.S. theaters on July 1, 2016.
“We have assembled a phenomenal international cast to tell this extraordinary story. Warner Bros. has also enjoyed long and successful collaborations with both David Yates and Jerry Weintraub, and we look forward to seeing what they and the entire team have in store for this timeless tale,” said Greg Silverman, president of creative development and worldwide production for Warner Bros.
“Tarzan has been an enduring and enigmatic figure in literature and cinema for more than a century. The adventures of a man who was torn between two worlds has entertained and intrigued people young and old, and we are excited to bring him to the screen for a new generation,” said Sue Kroll, WB’s president of worldwide marketing and international distribution.
“This is a perfect entry for the summer movie season corridor, with a terrific combination of action, adventure, romance and suspense that is sure to appeal to a broad audience,” added Fellman.
“I am so pleased to be reuniting with the team at Warner Bros. on this thrilling project. David Yates and I are going to be using the best of today’s technology in creating this new adventure, and we can’t wait to get started,” said Weintraub.
“Bombingham” takes place in the city that was the epicenter of the modern civil rights movement. The storytelling will shift time frames between past and present to tell the story of a murder that is discovered 50 years later and threatens to upend the fragile peace in the city between whites and African-Americans. The title refers to the city’s nickname in the black community, which suffered a slew of racially motivated bombings and other violence from the late 1940s through the 1960s.
Woo is writing the script and will exec produce with Aaron Kaplan.
Last November we got the news that Mr. Woo was producing an HBO series, Headhunters, but it looks like he has more irons in the fire.
Also, HBO tapped Woo to pen the adaptation of “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” based on the nonfiction tome by Rebecca Skloot. Alan Ball and Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Prods. are shepherding “Immortal Life” as a telepic.
