We are still enjoying the afterglow of True Blood’s season 2, but Alan Ball and his creative team are already working on the next season and the very first season 3 casting news was announced today.
Denis O’Hare has been cast as the king of Mississippi. He’s appeared in roughly a million movies (Milk, Duplicity, Quarantine) and pretty much that many TV series, too (most notably a 10-episode run on Brothers & Sisters).
O’Hare joins True Blood as a series regular. He’ll debut early into the show’s third season, slated to air next summer.
