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.
