True Blood Season Six Casting Calls/Episode List

This page will be updated as information comes in, I tried to clean up the info from the various sources to make it an easier read for us Truebs. If anything is remiss, please add it in comments, any help is very appreciated. Some of the minor characters have been cast, last year I posted info and then they were killed off in 5 minutes of any given episodes. Some of the Authority guards from last season are listed for season 6 episodes, pretty sure they were killed off last season so maybe they are in promos, or intros to the first episodes.  A few club fae seem like they might show up again too, all just guesses on my part from reading the IMDB season 6 episode lists (which aren't always accurate). Seems like it makes more sense to just post a name of the actor in these smaller roles and their IMDB link, I'm not getting attached to them (lol) this season coming up. 
 HBO's Official Season 6 description press release- "The Authority is in flames. TruBlood is in short supply. As Bill comes to terms with his newfound powers after emerging reincarnated from a pool of blood, humans are in open conflict with vampires like never before. Meanwhile, Sookie and Jason must steel themselves for an encounter with their parents’ killer: the mysterious and ancient Warlow."
MACKLYN- a mysterious and sinister figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason.  Series regular, Rutger Hauer has been cast. They tried to fake us out Rutger will play Niall Brigant Sookie's great (more than one great?) grandfather. 
We assumed this is Macklyn Warlow, and we were wrong but  for all things M. Warlow look HERE.  Source (ok Warlow specs are back to pre Macklyn Warlow Pre-S6E2 casting call below, FUGAZI!)
Texas Governor-Not only is the show casting an oily Rick Perry type to play the recurring role of Texas’ governor, perhaps an instigator of a human/vampire war? 
Southern belle- to play his twentysomething (and presumably less oily) daughter. Source We'll also meet the governor of Texas, a Rick Perry-type who is a warmonger, and his daughter, who is pretty and originally comes off as fearful, but will prove to be quite tough. recurring roles Source
This new addition seems like it's the same character, now Governor of Louisana, not Texas and Series Regular.
[CREIGHTON BURRELL] Governor of Louisiana (Late 40s-60s) A classic good ol’ boy politician. Governor Burrell has despised vampires since his wife ran off with one, leaving him as a single father to their only daughter, Ali. Governor Burrell is a politically savvy and perhaps overly ambitious fella who tends to let his personal aspirations overshadow his humanity…SERIES REGULAR
TVLine says Arliss Howard is joining the HBO drama’s forthcoming sixth season in the series regular role of Louisiana Governor Creighton BurrellThe character is described as a good ol’ boy politician who has a major beef with vampires ever since his wife ran off with one, leaving him as a single father to their only daughter. Politically savvy and perhaps overly ambitious, Creighton tends to let his personal aspirations overshadow his humanity. Seems like they changed the first name to Truman, but Creighton did brings some laughs.
BEN- an “ultra charming, ultra handsome” fella in his late 20s/early 30s who is magnetic to women and menfolk alike, all while using his Southern gentility to mask a dark, dark, darrrrrk side. Watch for Ben to cross paths with Sookie soon after his arrival.
English actor Rob Kazinsky (EastEnders) to join the Season 6 cast as a series regular, TVLine has learned.  Kazinsky — whose biggest TV credit stateside was an arc on Brothers & Sisters — will play Ben, a highly charismatic faerie who takes a liking to Sookie (and vice-versa) and helps Sookie and Jason delve deeper into the mystery of their parents’ murders. This marks True Blood‘s second major Season 6 hire. 

[NICOLE JANNSEN now Wright] Bi-Racial (African American / Caucasian) Mid 20s. A true bleeding heart. She's not at all concerned with money, she's concerned with the common good and doing what's right. Probably went to Bryn Mawr and drives an old Saab. Life hasn't beaten her down yet. She and her band of well-meaning liberal advocates model themselves after the civil rights activist "Freedom Riders" of the Sixties. A do-gooder to the core, Nicole's naive optimism is charming but ultimately vaguely idiotic and dangerous...SERIES REGULAR Source
Jurnee Smollett (see photo on right) has been cast as Nicole (TVLine)

[WES] Male, Mid to late 20s. Sexy, spiritually and emotionally deeper than any other vampires we've seen.

Wes is smart, compassionate, a good listener, a protector type and he can play the guitar.

Stacy Haiduk was on one of the best vamp shows ever, Kindred The Embraced, so this makes me happy! 
Actress Stacy Haiduk, has landed a new guest role in Primetime. Stacy will be appearing on "True Blood" for two episodes. Haiduk posted on Facebook to let friends know more about her role: "So those of you who are wondering what I am playing on 'True Blood', it won't be a vampire (sorry)!!! I play a werewolf prostitute!!!!! LOL!!!! Should be interesting!!!!! xoxox." Source (Jenny in S6E5).
From TVLineTrue Blood has tapped Brothers & Sisters alum Luke Grimes play the recurring role of James.
[JAMES] a circa ’70s-made vamp who is smart, spiritual and emotionally deeper than any other bloodsucker we’ve seen before. Picture a cross between Jim Morrison and Gary Clark Jr. with even more of a poet’s edge. The dude’s every women’s dream come true, and he doesn’t even know it. He is said to debut at the midway point of season 6.
UPDATE: I hear he would be upped to a regular if the vampire drama is renewed for a seventh season. Grimes, repped by CAA, manager Darren Goldberg, and attorney Dave Feldman, will play Wes James, a 27-year-old, sexy, spiritual, compassionate, intelligent, protective, deeply emotional, and guitar-playing vampire who was turned in the ‘70s. Deadline

CATHRYN DE PRUME Episode #605, "F*ck the Pain Away"  Role: BEN'S MOTHER
Either someone is changing IMDB listings to be funny or they slipped a huge spoiler in by changing the role from Ben's Mother to Warlow's mother (6/27).

Casting Director: Junie Lowry Johnson, Libby Goldstein 

DANIELLE YU Booked: TRUE BLOOD Episode #605, "F*ck the Pain Away", Role: SOMCHAI

Teen Wolf's Gideon Emery is also cast for FTPA, I would guess either for Finn or Justin. Will update when the role is firmed up.
I think I should go out on a limb and DUNDUNDUN, say he is WARLOW! He would have been perfect if Warlow was as we saw before hot BenWa showed up in the role (he is a new regular on teen wolf as Alpha de primo Alpha Deucalion).

Now we see Lorin McCraley who played a small part as a clerk faking he is a vamp in S1 is back in E4 (I'm Your Man), but is he playing the same role? IMDB says he's F.W. (fake Warlow, lol), but look at a recent photo and what is a person supposed to think?  He looks like NuWarlow all the way. UPDATED: Well, he is still the sleezeball he always was, Jason gave him a hit to the huevos.
Rebecca McFarland is cast as Maggie in E02 Here Comes the Sun, she's very recognizable from many shows and might be recurring. The pregnant wife of Patrick comes looking for him.

Linn Bjornland is cast  as Niall's Mother in episode 4, "Im Your Man" via IMDB. This ends my confusion over the Ben flashback and Niall's, they are indeed separate.

According to IMDB there is a  Fairy / Royal Faerie (what happened to Queen Mabe?) in the first 2 episodes of the new seasonHere Comes the Sun Don't Let Me Be MisunderstoodRoyal Faerie  Elena (Olena) Kolpachikova is cast. 
There's also a Fairie Warrior in ep. 5, (notice new spelling of fairy), Lars Slind is cast.
Gee, Lars looks very...talented, he does a lot of underwear modeling and he does it well!
He has been posting pics on instagram too, this is how our warrior will look, is he young Niall?

UPDATE another Fairie Warrior is cast, John H L Viking. Most updates are found on IMDB especially for the smaller roles.
