True Blood Season Premiere Scoop, Casting Note

The third season premiere of True Blood is still months away. HBO has tentatively scheduled it for June.

But creator Alan Ball has spilled a couple of secrets about the episode, and both of them involve characters' sex lives! On the season premiere, viewers can look forward to...

* ...Sam Merlotte in an Arkansas motel room with a familiar face: "It should be curious and confusing to viewers," said star Sam Trammell.

* ... Jason Stackhouse waking up with two women next to him, though Ryan Kwanten says he's looking forward a more meaningful romance for his character: "He will find love in the werewolf world, and love is a pretty unknown concept for him."

Speaking of that world, most fans are aware that Joe Manganiello has been cast as Alcide.

As readers of the book franchise on which True Blood is based know, Alcide's girlfriend Debbie Pelt will also come abord the drama.

She'll debut on the third episode and, as Ball told TV Guide Magazine, is "a badass bitch you do not want to get on the wrong side of. She is not going to like Sookie."

honestly, true blood has always captured that "fanatic" side in me - versus the sookie stackhouse novels (i admit, i couldn't put them down, but really people, depressed much? after bill cheated on sookie i was like a crack addict without the means to sign up for rehab. yes, it was that detrimental) - alan ball has true talent AND amazing actors/actresses - what's not to love? i cannot wait for the third season! true blood FTW.
