True Blood has no bite in Chino Hills

Posted by Lynnpd On March - 16 - 2014ADD COMMENTS

newssquare2STONEIn February, we reported that True Blood might be filming in Chino Hills, CA for a setting of a political reception.  Well, unfortunately Fangbanger Productions is going to have to look for another place to film because now that plan is dead and probably won’t be resurrected.

Producers wanted to use the lobby of City Hall for three days as a stand-in for, no kidding, the George W. Bush Presidential Library, for a scene involving a political reception that turns into blood-letting.

This idea proved controversial in Chino Hills, where some leaders and religious types wanted to quash the fun for any locals who might have thought it would be cool to spot Chino Hills on a TV series for a change instead of Ontario’s airport or Pomona.

“Sorry Chino Hills True Blood fans. True Blood has pulled out of considering Chino Hills as a location site for the show,” Councilman Peter Rogers wrote on his Facebook page.

The official explanation is that Chino Hills was determined to be too far away from L.A. per union rules to avoid paying the cast and crew a larger stipend.  Well, it looks like vampires are still fighting persecution.

The vampire proposal came before the City Council last month and the vote was 4-1 to negotiate terms.

Art Bennett was the dissenter, telling the Chino Champion newspaper, “I am by no means a prude, but I don’t see this as a wholesome product.

Evidently only wholesome products are allowed into Chino Hills. Conduct yourself accordingly.

I would have suggested that foes lace the City Hall lobby with garlic to ward off the TV vampires, but that won’t be necessary now. They could have put up crosses too, but maybe the giant “In God We Trust” motto in the Council Chambers would have sufficed.

Rogers noted on Facebook that “the pro or con city council discussion of allowing the filming of the show at city hall,” scheduled for last Tuesday, would not take place.

Among the comments, most of which were supportive of the filming, Rogers’ wife Merry had the best line: “It’s a bloody shame.”

Carrie Preston talks new love interest for Arlene

Posted by Lynnpd On March - 16 - 20141 COMMENT

Carrie Preston as ArleneMinor Spoiler Alert!

Recently we posted about a new cast member, Riley Smith who has been cast as the brooding vampire, Keith for True Blood’s final season 7. Keith is to be a new love interest for Arlene and now Carrie Preston has opened up for the first time about the casting of her character’s love interest this season.

Carrie says:

“I haven’t met Riley Smith yet, but he is certainly very talented and I’m really looking forward to working with him and seeing what the writers do with that storyline … We do know that Arlene has not been the most open-minded person throughout the series, so I myself am curious to see how open she lets her mind go.”

Since Arlene has never taken much to vampires,  this should be an interesting plot for the character.

Man V Food’s Adam Richman has also joined the lineup and will play for Masters of Sex star Michael Sheen’s Rest of the World squad, alongside returning players James McAvoy, Gordon Ramsay, Westlife’s Nicky Byrne and comedian Patrick Kielty.

The England squad will also welcome back faces from previous years, including Homeland star Damian Lewis, singer Olly Murs, John Bishop, Jonathan Wilkes and Take That’s Mark Owen.

Football legends Jamie Redknapp, Jamie Carragher, Paul Ince, David Seaman and Teddy Sheringham have all signed up for the England Squad, while Edwin van der Sar and Jaap Stam will represent the Rest of the World, with more names expected to be announced soon.

UNICEF UK Ambassador Williams said: “Soccer Aid returns for the fifth time in June and I admit there are scores to settle.

“Leading the England team, I will be making sure we defend that trophy against Rest of the World. There’s never been a better time for us to show our support for UNICEF, so please dig deep and buy your tickets now!”

UNICEF UK Executive Director David Bull added: “Soccer Aid 2014 will raise vital money to help some of the world’s most vulnerable children get life-saving food, medicine and clean water.

Every day, children are in serious danger and thousands die needlessly in the struggle against poverty, hunger and disease. It’s time for us all to act. Please, buy a ticket to go to Soccer Aid or watch the match on ITV and help us change children’s lives.

Dermot O’Leary and Kirsty Gallacher will return to host the match – which will be broadcast live on ITV – while Cat Deeley will present an hour-long show from the player’s lounge in the lead-up to the event.

The bi-annual fundraiser was last held in 2012, and helped raise £4.9 million for UNICEF.

Ryan Kwanten Talks New Film with Ryan Seacrest

Posted by Lynnpd On March - 15 - 2014ADD COMMENTS

Ryan+Kwanten+Stars+Michael+Jackson+ONE+Cirque+G8yF7zjRKLAxTrue Blood’s Ryan Kwanten talked with Ryan Seacrest on his shoe “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” yesterday and talked about his new film “The Right Kind of Wrong.”

Ryan plays Leo Palamino, a failed writer made famous for his many flaws and shortcomings written about in a blog by his ex-wife. Leo then meets Colette, the girl of his dreams, but there’s only one problem – it’s her wedding day. So does Ryan himself think he could ever find himself falling for a taken women?

I get the feeling that we’ve all felt whether it’s passing someone on a train or just running by someone or, you know, someone is on the opposite side while you’re stuck in traffic and you just sort of lock eyes,” Ryan says, ”I think there are opportunities everyday. It’s just whether you choose to embrace them or ignore them and this is someone who just doesn’t know any other way than to just go at it full force.” The films also stars Sara Canning, Ryan McPartlin, Kristen Hager, James A. Woods, Will Sasso, and Catherine O’Hara.

Catch The Right Kind of Wrong out in theaters now and listen to a clip from the interview below:

spoiler-s7squareIn True Blood Season 1, you may recall the mention of Minus as the slave owned by the Compton’s during the Civil War. Bill Compton talked about him when asked by Tara if he had owned any slaves at the time he met Sookie’s grandmother. Below is a video of that scene:
 

 
Well, it looks like the character of Minus is going to come to life in True Blood’s final Season 7. Below is a tweet from someone who auditioned for the part:

Mustafa Shakir ‏@effortlessOne – Mar 11

SO I was gonna keep this to myself but fork it. I just had an audition for True Blood playing the role of “Minus” a slave, and I don’t know if I did a great job or just channeled some ancient angst up in the audition room but I was over come. It started as soon as I got the audition, this bubbling up of the rawest uncut shadow shit. I came home to do last minute prep and was just snatched by grief. by the time I got to the audition I was fcuking exhausted from crying and growling. Lord knows its gonna be amazing to book that role but DAMN slavery is alive and well in my cells and I’ve gotta do some ritual it seems to give them some peace. Seriously. thanks for listening. I need some pedialyte and thai food STAT.

So, as we have already speculated, it looks like we will have at least one or more Bill Compton flashbacks to the time of the Civil War in the finale season. It should be an interesting jaunt.  

Personally, I love the flashbacks, what do you think?

midnight crossroadThe author who wrote the books on which True Blood is based, Charlaine Harris has been working on a new trilogy and the first book, “Midnight Crossroad” is to be published on May 6.

Charlaine says of the new books:

“The Midnight books are about a group of people, all of them with secrets, drawn to a remote and rural crossroad in Texas. Some of them are people I’ve wanted to revisit from other, older, series, and some of them are people my readers have never met before. There are supernatural elements in the Midnight books, but they’re not as focused on the otherworldly as my Sookie Stackhouse novels. It’s refreshing and revitalizing to be doing something so new and different.”

Watch the trailer below:

Janina GavankarTrue Blood’s Janina Gavankar will co-star in NBC’s drama pilot “The Mysteries Of Laura.” We’re happy for Janina to be getting a new gig after True Blood!

Based on the popular Spanish series, The Mysteries Of Laura follows the life and relationships of Laura Diamond (Debra Messing), a female homicide detective who can handle murderous criminals — but not her hell-raising twin children. Janina will play Meredith, a tightly wound and perfectly coiffed detective who sees herself as far more sophisticated than her fellow detective and rival Laura Diamond, and it annoys her to no end that Laura is the precinct’s golden child.

Read the exclusive interview we had with Janina Gavankar a couple of years ago.
