“Is it Bill?” asks Jessica in the new True Blood trailer. The answer she gets is a decisive no as we see a bloody, burned Bill clearly on a rampage as he assaults an electrical box and menaces Sookie and Eric before impressively baring his fangs. The trailer’s other highlights include a shot of a mysterious bearded figure (who may or may not herald “the beginning of the end” depending on how much we can trust the voiceover), Lafayette looking like a badass with a shotgun and Alcide ripping his shirt off– you know, just normal Bon Temps stuff.

Actor Luke Grimes, best known for his recurring role on the latter seasons of ‘Brothers & Sisters’, will be tackling a much different role: that of a vampire on the HBO hit series True Blood. According to the folks over at TV Line, Grimes will play the recurring role of James, a vampire who was turned the 1970?s, who is “smart, spiritual and emotionally deeper than any other bloodsucker” seen on the show before. The report further shares that the character of James is “every woman’s dream come true and he doesn’t even know it”. No pressure there, Luke, in making that believable, right?! He will make his appearance on ‘True Blood’ at the “midway point” of the show’s sixth season. READ MORE...

The vampires and werewolves are headed back to Bon Temps this summer, and they're cranking up the intensity. "True Blood" has found a new showrunner in co-executive producer Mark Hudis , and not only is he shaking up Season 6 -- Spoiler TV reports that there will be a prostitute who earns cash by letting vampires feed on her and a few twentysomething "Occupy Wall Street" types -- but he's not too worried about spoilers, apparently. “Certainly [Bill (Stephen Moyer)] is not going to be the Bill we know and love,” Hudis said, according to Wetpaint . “He’s going to have more bite, no pun intended.” http://feeds.huffingtonpost.com/~r/HP/Entertainment/~3/OBXhtsoJYI8/true-blood-season-6-joe-manganiello_n_2482307.html
True Blood’s production hiatus is over, meaning the wolfpack is back at work — including its alpha male, Alcide, and the actor behind the snarl, Joe Manganiello. Joe spoke to Access Hollywood about returning to his regular gig, the raciness of Season 6, and stripping down to play Alcide. First of all, that beard he’s been sporting the past couple of months has got to go. He grew it out for his role in the upcoming action flick Ten, but it’s apparently unbecoming of... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/gWbVVFRubhw/joe-manganiello-talks-season-6-showing-skin-and-shaving-that-beard
