As True Blood beefs up its sixth season, a new addition to the cast is being made. Arliss Howard (Full Metal Jacket, Medium) has been brought aboard to fill the shoes of a Louisiana governor. Full details inside.
According to TV Line, he’ll play Truman Burrell and “the character is described as a good ol’ boy politician who has a major beef with vampires ever since his wife ran off with one, leaving him as a single father to their only daughter. Politically savvy and perhaps overly ambitious, Truman tends to let his personal aspirations overshadow his humanity.”
True Blood season 6 kicks off next summer.
