More and more actors are called to fill in the new roles of "True Blood" season 3 with the latest getting the call back is Marshall Allman. The actor who was one of the series regulars in the axed "Prison Break" is on board the vampire drama as Sam's younger brother named Tommy Mickens.
In the casting call, Tommy is said to be "dirty but good looking youngster who works at a Tire Depot in Arkansas." He tends to hide his identity because his family has been owing money all over town and he is particularly unaware of who Sam is. This character will be recurring heavily in the season.
Also, the show is still auditioning for the part of Sam's parent. Melinda Mickens, who supposedly is the mother of Tommy, is in her 50s but "dirt-poor, hung-over and trashy-looking". She wears stained clothes and lives in a shanty house styled in early dumpster. She has a mysterious link to Sam's distant past. Melinda will have a husband named Joe Lee Mickens who is equally dirt poor. The uneducated man is amazed when he realizes Sam's link to his wife's early life.
Beside looking for relatives for Sam, the show is looking forward to an actress to play Crystal Norris. In her 20s, Crystal is a mysterious and hauntingly beautiful young woman in sundress. She shares an electric connection to Jacob before disappearing into the trees.
The third season will be debuted by HBO in June next year. Melinda, Joe and Crystal will appear in the second episode of the season.
On another news, "True Blood" is listed as one of the nominees of 2010 Producers Guild Awards as the contender of Best Drama.
