According to TVLine, True Blood has already made its first major Season 6 casting hire.
Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner) is joining the show as Macklyn, a mysterious and sinister figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason. Hmmm, I wonder if this character has any relation to the infamous “Warlow” that has been rumored to appear in Season 6?
Hauer is well known for his portrayal of Blade Runner‘s Roy Batty, a renegade robot trying to evade capture in Ridley Scott’s classic sci-fi film. But the Dutch actor has a varied resume that includes parts in movies like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Batman Begins and Sin City and guest roles in TV’s Smallville and Alias. In 1988, he won a Golden Globe for his work in the TV movie Escape From Sobibor.
True Blood season 6 is scheduled to start next June. Can’t wait!
