True Blood Casts Grant Bowler and Theo Alexander as Werewolf and New Vampire 2009-12-03 12:30:05

True Blood Adds a Werewolf and a New Vampire to the Cast!

True Blood is about to join the ranks of hot pop culture werewolves: the show has just cast actors Grant Bowler as a werewolf and Theo Alexander as a vampire.

Bowler, who has starred on Ugly Betty, will play the head of a werewolf biker gang (how hot is that? I'll say it again: werewolf biker gang) while Alexander will guest as the boyfriend of the vampire king Russell Edgington (also a new character). The werewolf character is obviously the biggest deal here, as True Blood has previously only seen shapeshifters and a smattering of creepy creatures, but no howling-at-the-moon wolfmen (though there are werewolves in the books, I hear). Either way, I hope Bowler gets Taylor Lautner's trainer.

Can't wait for Alcide to be introduced - loved him in the books! And I agree - JDM would be fantastic in that role. So excited for season 3 - I can't wait for Sookie to get rid of Bill, he is such a dud. Bring on Eric! YUM

When are they going to cast Alcide, already?? Also, guy on right wouldn't be bad as Alcide. Or Jeffrey Dean Morgan, he would be perfect, because he's who I always pictured.

Are we sure they're still going to bring on Alcide? And not replace his character with this guy?

So, he'll be the one to end up in Alcide's closet?

I so can't wait for Season 3, although I have to say, I hope that Sookie is less wimpy than she was in Season 2. Maybe she and Bill need to start fighting so that she's not so googly-eyed and soppy this season.

Alcide has green eyes. This actor has blue, right? Contacts should fix that.
