True Blood, Vol. 2: Tainted Love
Marc Andreyko, Michael McMillian (w) • Joe Corroney (a) • J. Scott Campbell (c)
Hoyt, the human boyfriend of Jessica, tries to do a good deed… and it doesn’t go unpunished! Hoyt notices that Jessica has been staring at a poster for a local prom night, which leads him to romantically scheme to throw a surprise one for her at Merlotte’s (with the help of friends Sookie, Sam and Tara). Unfortunately, things go awry when Jessica drinks a bit too much of the punch, which just happens to be part of a tainted batch of Tru Blood! Now out of control on a rampage into the night, Hoyt, Bill and Jason do their best to help their friend. Meanwhile, Sookie and Lafayette try to help Jessica a little differently, by seeking out Eric, and the local sheriff! It’s a thrill ride beyond compare as they fight to bring Jessica back to the safety of Bon Temps stretches dangerously close to dawn.
From the NY Post-
Making the most of his time off from “True Blood,” Alexander Skarsgard is taking on the role of a troubled former solider in his latest movie, indie drama “Disconnect.” The heartthrob star has been spotted this week filming at the Allegria Hotel in Long Beach, LI. In the movie, Skarsgård plays an ex-Marine who’s struggling to make ends meet and is emotionally distant from his wife, prompting him to seek an affair. The film also stars Frank Grillo and Colin Ford.
Interviews from the HBO Emmy after party, some info for next season, with the KING!.
From Dreadcentral, talking about his Straw Dogs' character
Janina was the first? WoW
Ever go on youtube looking for TB vids and see the weird fanmade stuff? Some of it is so bad, by really wacked out people and why are the worst make-up appliers doing Tarte TB palette tutorials? It is some scary shit, it's better for some people not to show what they look like, really.
NYU's online campus news has some good ideas for what should happen S5.
Expect Lafayette to be mofoing CRAZY. Lafayette has been a pretty mentally stable character on the show so far. He’s dealt with a lot of drama and disturbing things, but he’s overcame it all and found true love with Jesus. Now he’s losing the two people he loves the most. He has to finally have a breakdown. more at the link above.
HBO is giving us some Making True Blood production videos this hiatus!
Nice interview with Ryan from Singapore's Today Show.
It's no secret that we love all of the sexy brood of hunks on True Blood. But after interviewing Ryan Kwanten last Sunday, when he was here for the 24th Singapore Film Festival to promote his quirky little dramedy Griff The Invisible, he's become our resident favourite. More at the link above.
Look at Michelle Pfeiffer as Elizabeth Collins Stoddard in Dark Shadows, she looks like Pam!
Production on True Blood season 5 will begin in November 2011 and run through late June/early July 2012.
True Blood season 4 will likely be released on DVD and Blu-ray in late May 2012, season 5 will likely premiere on HBO in June 2012.
This will keep you warm till the show is back, if Bookies didnt point me to it I wouldn't know about it. Truly, Madly Deadly is available at Amazon.
I have been a vamp fan since I thought my granpa was Bela Lugosi, yeah I was a weird wee one. He had the hair and the thick accent and since my mother watched horror, what the hell did I know? They used some of Barbara Henderson's photos too, our friend from Skargardfans, that place about Stellan's less sexy kid (ducking).
