Hiatus Howling Continues

Some of you might remember this one, "Werewolf", it starred a young John York. It still amazes me his career landed playing the seldom seen Mac on General Hospital, he was way hot back in those days and not a bad actor. In the 80's it was literally raining men, so he somehow got overlooked (?). He played Eric Cord, a college student, who after getting bit goes from town to town across America looking for the originator of his wolfie bloodline to kill him and be rid of the curse. The thing that I loved about this plotline was that he was a skanky drifter played by...wait for it...Chuck Conners, Lucas McCain gone way bad. Every week as the credits rolled I would laugh to myself because the creator and writer was Frank Lupo, who better to write a show on werewolves? The vid below is very grainy and I am hoping to find a better copy but doesnt it remind you of Sam naked in the woods from TB S1? There seems to be whole eps up on youtube, oh yeah, just watching some bits I am loving it all over again. Chuck Connors was so badass/scary in this.

Don't remember seeing this before-

From the Golden Globes

More from Kristin-Let the record show: Ryan Kwanten and Joe Manganiello are truly fine actors who churn out excellent work on True Blood. And not to take anything away from that, but when the pair hit a red carpet together, as they did at last night's star-studded HBO Golden Globes party, the press line gets a bit...giddy. It can't be helped. It's not our fault. I mean, have you seen them?
Poor Zooey Deschanel has to hook up with Ryan on New Girl (tragic!), and Kwanten gave us the scoop on that, plus what's ahead for True Blood's "out of the box" season five. Plus, if accidentally doing a nude scene in front of a school bus filled with children sounds like something you should go to prison for, um, break out the handcuffs...
It's part of the reason we fans love True Blood so: Alan Ball and his team always find new ways to surprise and amuse!
At last night's red-hot HBO party, Kwanten told me of season five: "This is going to be a very sort of out-of-the-box season. If we broke down the wall before, now we are firmly on the other side. I think you can always expect the unexpected with us." 

What else you can expect? Not a lot of clothing. "It's True Blood," teases Manganiello. "We aren't allowed to!"
Manganiello also reveals that a recent nude scene (he plays werewolf Alcide) went unexpectedly awry: "We were shooting a transformation scene in broad daylight and there was a hedge and over the hedge was a school bus filled with kids." Whoops. Though he clearly wished that mistake hadn't happened, he pauses and jokes, "Listen, you're not having fun unless it's something you can get thrown in prison for."

Vampires, shapeshifters and werewolves were among the guests raising a glass to the Golden Globes at HBO’s post-show soiree Sunday night at the Beverly Hilton. We’re talking, of course, about the True Blood cast, several of whom were in a fairly chatty (read: scoopy) mood. Herewith are six of the meatiest, juiciest teases we extracted from them.
1 | Janina Gavankar revealed that “a major thing happens to Luna early in the season, and it’s going to change her life forever.” (pregs or dead?)
2 | The cast learned that Chris Meloni was Bon Temps-bound last month at a table read, news that elicited “gasps” throughout the room, recalled Gavankar. “We’re so excited to have him.”
3 | Alcide’s days of playing Mr. Nice Guy are over. “As you saw at the end of Season 4, he’s not taking anyone’s s— anymore,” said the man-beast’s portrayer, Joe Manganiello. “Now you’re going to see an Alcide who’s going to slam you up against the wall and do his thing. Who doesn’t like being slammed up against the wall, right?” Asked to clarify his use of the word “slam” — i.e. is it a euphemism for, ahem, another s-word — Manganiello cracked a devilish smile and replied, “It could be a fun slam. And it could be an angry slam. You never know?” He then reminded us that, “Alcide is single.” (maybe he'll finally be sexy on TB, meaning more than just look good)
4 | The latest True Blood script Manganiello read contains “some really fun [Alcide-Sookie] stuff,” he revealed. “Stuff that makes you really nervous… I’m watching my words really carefully.” (nervous that Bill or Eric will find out?)
5 | Ryan Kwanten hinted that Jason may have bitten off more than he could chew with regard to his romance with Jessica. “As you know, anyone who gets involved with Jason better have her wits about her,” he said. “But I think in this case, it’s Jason who better watch out. The tables have finally turned.” ( Jess doesn't want to be with just one male?)
6 | Where do you go after spending half of Season 4 being raped by a werepanther? “Even that can be topped,” teased Kwanten. “Jason was very lucky to survive; he was down for the count. He has a desire to life. I admire that in a man.” (With reporting by Vlada Gelman)
