Sunday at 9PM Somebody That I Used to Know Use the hashtag #somebody during the new episode to join the social conversation. 

Original casting calls and revisions-
[REGGIE] Male, mid 20s to early 30s. Caucasian. A good looking redneck, a member of a trashy, low-rent anti-vampire hate group. Co-star
[SARAH COMPTON-HARRIS] Female Caucasian 70s - 80s. Seen in a flashback to 1931, the elderly, very frail Sarah has been ravaged by cancer and is close to death. One day guest star.

[RYDER] This large guy is a wolf who addresses the Shreveport pack as they face a change in leadership. Guest star
[LADY PACKMEMBER] This female member of the wolf pack makes a wry suggestion at a meeting. Co-star
[SEAN] College age, lean and tall like a long-distance runner, Sean is a University track star who's put in the terrifying position of having to out-run a wolf pack. Co-star
[FEMALE] 20s Caucasian, she begs for her life as she is fed on by a vampire. Co-star
AMDouble to Sam Trammell. 5'9 1/2" - 5'10" 155 - 160 lbs. 38 chest. Actor must look just like Sam Trammell.  
Yeah fans were just clammoring for more fairies, no?
UPDATE-Rhoswen7's casting info-Here's a revised casting notice that changes the age of a character:
[SARAH COMPTON-HARRIS] Female Caucasian 40-45. Seen in a flashback to 1931, in a scene with Bill (Stephen Moyer). One day guest star 
That's an interesting change. She can't be Bill's daughter unless he made her a vampire around 1900. If she's human and 40-45 in 1931, then she's got to be his granddaughter or a neice. This revised casting notice doesn't mention anything about her being sick or near death. 

[RECEPTIONIST] Female, 20s, perky vampire, any ethnicity. Co-star. No lines in this episode, but will recur.

Since we saw the flashback of libertine Bill the piano playing vamp with Lorena during the 1920's, this is a leap back to his humanity. Maybe he visits Sarah right after he broke away from Lorena, it would be the only way it makes sense for him being caring enough to visit his kin.

Some ideas from HighlightHollywood on this episode-Some will not believe they really saw Lilith, but soon, events will transpire to remove all doubt of this vampire’s true nature and innate strengths. in one of the most shocking and earth-moving events, helped by Claude (Giles Matthey) and his sisters, Sookie and Jason visit the site of their parents’ deaths, with shocking results. And I do mean, very SHOCKING! Hoyt begins to see what choices he made in the past, were probably not the right ones, and fears this time that he won’t be able to do so again. MORE at the link

SSSSSSSSam, now he's cooking with gasssssss.

Interview with Kristin Bauer, more at This Sunday is the episode Stephen Moyer directed -- how did he do?

Kristin Bauer Van Straten: He was amazing. So wonderful to work with, and an incredible director. The episode is sooo good and has some great Pam stuff in it. I was excited to work so closely with him in this capacity. What are you excited for people to see in this episode?
Kristin: We're going to see over the next few weeks this big question about who is drinking the Kool-aid in terms of The Authority and who isn't. Obviously I still have this really strong connection to Eric and I'm worried about him. Pam wasn't a fan of Eric with Sookie -- how does she feel about Nora?
Kristin: She doesn't seem to have a problem right now, but you never know. The sh*t went down so hard recently, so we have bigger problems than that. But you never know what next year holds, and how they will interact in season six. There are always windows open for conflict on True Blood. Pam will always be sensitive to Eric and where he sits in the packing order. Russell's return is obviously what you're talking about -- the last time Pam came face to face with him, it didn't end well. But he's seemingly a new man. Should we trust the new Russell?
Kristin: I wouldn't trust Russell as far as you can throw him. That guy can turn on a dime. As an actor, having done scenes with him, Denis O'Hare can also turn on a dime. He's the most amazing actor to watch, so by extension, Russell Edgington is capable of anything. But Pam has become a maker herself this season -- what do you enjoy about the Pam/Tara dynamic?
Kristin: I have had so much fun bring the Pam-Tara dynamic to life. This has been a whole new area for Pam. Alex and I laugh all day like children. He and Stephen are such pranksters -- but with Rutina, it's been the total opposit -- she cares so much. What's been interesting for me is seeing how the Tara-Pam characters are actually so similar. We're just pushing back against each other and figuring out how I can slap her down while dressing her up like a Barbie doll. It's really comfortable and fun. And she's having a really good time too. I keep welcoming her to the vampire world. I'm like, "It's really good over here." She was just so excited about Comic-Con now that she's one of the supers because, apparently, the humans never got the same kind of love the vampires did at Comic-Con. And I told her, "Yea, the vampire world is great!"
OK people of the fandom, who the feck is this vamp? The chin being distorted is a clue I feel, Russell has a slight cleft, Eric has one, so is it to hide that identifier?
See how the chin seems to be removed or covered in the last 2 photos? Meloni has a pronounced chin that would give Roman away too.
