Video: Denis O’Hare on Shade 45 talks all about The King

True Blood‘s evil King of Mississippi Russell Edgington, better known to us mortals as Tony Award-winning actor Denis O’Hare, stopped through Shade 45 recently to catch Whoo Kid and Reef up on the story behind the character’s anger issues and the upcoming season finale, which airs on HBO September 12!

Should Eminem or Ice Cube co-star on True Blood? Why is Sarah Palin especially welcome? What is the worst part about wearing fangs on set? Which rappers should get the fangs? Will Denis ever play a good guy?

Find out these answers and more in this exclusive video!

    I love this guy! Unlike Michelle Forbes whose Maryanne overstayed her welcome by the end of Season 2, I would love for Russell Edgington to stay for many more seasons to come. Provided, of course, that he allows Eric to live. There is no Trueblood without the Sheriff of Area 5, with apologies to the Bill’s Babes. ;)

      There is no True Blood without any of the main characters!
