Two more cast members have been chosen for True Blood, Lafayette’s Mom and Tara’s new beau, Franklin Mott.

woodardMeet Lafayette’s mom: It’s Alfre Woodard!

The Emmy-winning actress has been tapped to guest star on Alan Ball’s vampire drama “True Blood” as the mother of Lafayette Reynolds (Nelsan Ellis), the cook at Merlotte’s who got busted for selling vampire blood and held captive and tortured by Eric (Alexander Skarsgård).

Since Lafayette and Tara (Rutina Wesley) are cousins, it means that Sookie’s best friend would be getting a visit from her aunt.

Woodard, repped by ICM and D/F Management, recently joined TNT’s dramedy pilot “Delta Blues” in a co-starring role opposite Jason Lee.

However, Tara is getting a visitor too, a new boyfriend.

frainTudors star James Frain has just been cast in the heavily recurring role of Franklin Mott, Tara’s over-protective vampire squeeze.

The English actor, whose TV credits include recurring roles on Invasion (as Eli) and 24 (as Paul Raines), will debut in the second episode of the show’s upcoming third season.

The casting breakdown for the role describes Franklin as a tall, dark, and handsome vampire who seems to have an “immediate and torrid” connection to Tara. In the books, Franklin is essentially Tara’s sugar daddy, but it seems like Alan Ball is taking the character in a different direction.

Sam’s mom is cast for Season 3

Posted by Lynnpd On December - 14 - 20095 COMMENTS

J. Smith-Cameron

Sam’s mom is MIA no more.

True Blood has tapped Tony winner J. Smith-Cameron to play the recurring role of Sam’s estranged mother, Melinda.

In addition to her many Broadway roles, Cameron has appeared on Law & Order, Six Degrees, and K Street.

As previously described, Melinda is dirt-poor, hungover, and trashy-looking. Prison Break’s Marshall Allman is on board to play her son (and Sam’s younger sib.)  Still-to-be-cast is Melinda’s equally filthy hubby, Joe Lee.

Rutina Wesley in photo shoot for Signature Magazine

Posted by Lynnpd On December - 14 - 20091 COMMENT

Photographer Hellin Kay for Signature Magazine, shoots TV actresses Jaime Ray Newman, Navi Rawat, Cote De Pablo, Lisa Edelstein, Lauren Vélez, Rutina Wesley, Emily Procter, Katee SackHoff, and Jessalyn Gilsig.

Here’s a lovely photo of Rutina.

At the site, they have written information about each actress and here’s the one about Rutina:

Rutina Wesley

Troubled Tara Thornton holds the emotional center of HBO’s smash hit True Blood, which is thanks, in large part, to Rutina Wesley’s nuanced and vulnerable performance. Born in Las Vegas to a showgirl mother and a professional tap dancer father, Wesley was always destined to see her name in lights. Wesley discovered her passion for acting after her first role in a play at the age of seven, “I just loved being on stage,” she admits, “my dad wanted me to be tapping, but I’m a storyteller, I feel like I’m a vessel through which characters come through. There are so many stories out there to be told and you can tell them through dance, through song and through acting; acting gives me a chance to do all of those things at once.” After such an emotionally grueling season, Wesley intends to take it easy before True Blood resumes filming, but you can catch her voice on an upcoming episode of The Cleveland Show, playing Yvette, Donna’s best friend.

Look for Rutina at approximately .45 into the video:

True Blood – #1 Top 10 Sex Scene Of 2009

Posted by Lynnpd On December - 14 - 200914 COMMENTS
billandsookie

Yourtango.com says that 2009 was darn sexy, what with all the vampire, werewolf, and plain, old regular-people lust.  Here’s their #1 favorite sexy on-screen moment of 2009 and certainly, in our opinion, True Blood should be first on the list since it is the best and the sexiest.

1. True Blood’s Sea of Nudity

HBO’s foray into vampire drama gave us some of the most graphic and heated sex scenes we’ve seen since The Sopranos and Sex And The City. With so many to choose from, the best of the bunch is really a matter of preference. Our favorite was when Anna Paquin finally bared it all. We’re assuming the scene came naturally to her, as she’s in a real-life relationship with co-star Stephen Moyer.

To see the rest of the list, go here.
