Two More Join HBO’s True Blood Cast

Latest additions for upcoming third season

Earlier this week, it was announced that Prison Break actor Marshall Allman would be joining the cast of True Blood‘s third season playing Tommy Mickens, Sam Merlotte’s long-lost younger brother. Now we’ve got two more additional to the cast.

According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Feed Blog, Theo Alexander and Ugly Betty heartthrob Grant Bowler have landed recurring roles on Alan Ball’s vampire drama.

Alexander will play Talbot, an “intensely beautiful” vampire, the boyfriend of Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare), the vampire king of Mississippi. Talbot has an acerbic sense of humor and loves to cook despite vampires’ inherent lack of cooking talents.

Bowler will play Coot, a werewolf, the menacing ringleader of a biker gang. Based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris, True Blood stars Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgård, Ryan Kwanten, Sam Trammell and Rutina Wesley.

Production on the third season of the HBO hit series began today.
