That noise you hear is the sound of Twitter exploding into a million little pieces over the following news: Chris Meloni is being courted to join the cast of True Blood.
TVLine has learned exclusively that the former Law & Order: SVU front man is circling what my sources are calling a “major role” in the show’s upcoming fifth season.
But what role? An HBO rep declined to comment, but I hear Meloni — who’s currently shooting a top-secret role in Man of Steel — is in talks to play (duh) an incredibly powerful vampire.
If a deal comes to pass, this would be a major casting coup for True Blood. It would also mark a high-profile return to the small screen for Meloni following his sudden departure from SVU last spring.
holy fucking shit cocks, I will watch True Blood again if he’s on it. I only watch it when Alcide shows up atm, but…yes… I demand nakedness if it happens.
This is why I don’t like posting news that gets a lot of notes, because then I have to deal with looking at comments from people who think Alcide is actually worth watching. :(
Hey now, don’t hate, I love watching Alcide…
…as a wolf. Just look at his cute little ears and his fuzzy little bottom and all that fur you just want to rub your face all in. I just want to pet him and love him and hug him and smear red lipstick on my face and pretend I’m Princess Mononoke whilst I hug him.
However, this wonderful lupus thespianus human counterpart Slab Plankchest…
At the Duracell event on March 21st, to support the U.S. Olympic basketball team, True Blood star Joe Manganiello gave Extra some tantalizing teases about season 5.
He’s already worked more in the first six episodes of True Blood season 5 than he did in all of seasons 3 and 4, and he promises that Alcide will go further than he did in the books – “action-wise, romantically…”
NOBODY FUCKING CARES ABOUT SLAB PLANKCHEST, JOE.
WELL, MAYBE YOUR MOM.
BUT ASIDE FROM HER, NOBODY.
