Season 5 ‘True Blood’ Season Premiere Party In Hollywood, Anna Paquin Stole The Show, Stephen Moyer Spoke And Alexander Skarsgard Mesmerized, Highlight Hollywood News. From Tommy Lightfoot Garrett, go to the site for pics and more.
Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer have been staying very quiet about their baby news since announcing it to the world April 17 — until now! At the “True Blood” Season 5 premiere party in Hollywood on Wednesday, Moyer, 42, gushed about his wife of nearly two years (who is currently expecting her first child). “It’s always amazing,” Moyer, who has two children from previous relationships, said. “I love my kids so much. And I think that the fact that Anna is pregnant just adds more crazy to the bundle of fun. We are looking forward to this baby. And so far everything is going fine.”

We sure aren't over, from Rhoswen7-

Looks like it has Roman's Vamp Authority Insignia on it and a bullet or mini stake, maybe for the guards?
Finally found some pics of Christopher Heyerdahl, I see Lana Del Rey on his left, at least she didn't hog the red carpet like other non-cast starlets did, lol. SOURCE

Update 5/31 From TVLine -

Tina Majorino has landed a role she can really sink her teeth into. The Veronica Mars alumna and current Bones co-star has booked a recurring gig on True Blood's upcoming fifth season, TVLine has learned exclusively. She’ll play a key member of the Vampire Authority’s support staff who first appears in Episode 3, which is scheduled to air June 24.

I didn't see Peter Mensah, Christopher Heyerdahl, Valentina Cervi at the premiere, I knew Meloni was making a movie so wouldn't attend. OOOOPS, here's my Italian Princessa Valentina, Molta Bella!  (update) they were all there except Meloni.

EW just posted this, more on their site
EW has learned exclusively that Academy Award nominee and Emmy winner Alfre Woodard will return as Ruby Jean Reynolds, the schizophrenic mother of Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) last seen in season 3. Ruby Jean was a patient in a local mental hospital and under the care of Jesus (Kevin Alejandro), who later went on to have a tragic romance with Lafayette.
GQ has a video interview up with DAW at the link-
True Blood-lust shows no sign of abating: no sooner does the fourth series come out on DVD and Blu-ray than trailers for the fifth get the rabid fanbase slavering. The vampiric HBO TV series' apparently deathless appeal is thanks in no small part to the likes of redhead Deborah Ann Woll, who meets in daylight at London's Soho Hotel. Turns out she's even more attractive in real life than her grumpy character Jessica Hamby. (In case you're wondering, Woll has a boyfriend who she met on "We think of vampires as being very stoic and brooding," says Woll of Jessica's appeal to her. "I like that Jess doesn't know what she's doing and is fumbling her way through. I would like her to find more of those qualities as she goes on. But right now it's fun to be a hormonal teenage vampire." Here Woll talks about fan mix tapes, being screamed at in Chipotle and her "perfect feet".
From Washington Square News, whole interview is at the link-
Despite appearing on a show about vampires, werewolves, witches, ghosts and people who magically turn into dogs, Aaron Christian Howles is a shockingly down-to-earth young Hollywood actor. “It’s pretty crazy,” Howles said. “It doesn’t even feel real. It kind of feels like I’m in a dream. But I definitely feel very honored, because I got to audition for [series creator] Alan Ball. I had the audition, and I was just like, ‘Oh my god, this isn’t real.’”
Although Howles normally dresses in character when going in for auditions, for “True Blood” he decided to dress as himself–converse shoes, jeans and a sweater vest–but at the audition, found that “everyone else was wearing a wife-beater.” And yet, Howles’ ability to stand out from the rest of the crowd is what he believes helped land him the role, both in style and performance. “I remember I could hear other people auditioning through the wall, and I thought ‘Well, I want to do something different,’” Howles recalled. “So I just went in and I deadpanned the entire scene, and apparently that’s what they were looking for.”
Though he may have been perfect for the role, Howles himself couldn’t be more different from his character. Howles plays Rocky Cleary, the son of Wiccan waitress Holly Cleary (played by Lauren Bowles). Rocky is a “macho guy,” a “redneck scary dude,” who likes to hunt and kill animals, and Howles was in fact shocked and repulsed by a scene where he had to drive a pick-up truck with an actual dead deer in the back.

How is this new today when it was out on 5/24, we even posted about it HERE? Some recycling is better than others. C'mon marketing people get into MadMen mode.
