True Blood Casts the Vampire King of Mississippi


We're still feeling a little bit stung by the season finale of True Blood — Alan Ball, couldn't you have carved out some time to either write or direct that episode? — but as fans of the program, we're willing to let that one slide. With that in mind, we bring you a scoop that was first reported by good ol' Michael "Raisin Bran" Ausiello over at Entertainment Weekly. Turns out veteran character actor Denis O'Hare has signed on to appear next season as the Vampire King of Mississippi. Let's just hope he plays a more interesting vamp than Evan Rachel Wood!
