Alright, because of all the shirtless/naked Alcide anticipation... http://justjared.buzznet.com/2010/04/06/joe-manganiello-shirtless-true-blood-ready/ The shots aren't from true Blood, but they are shirtless and naked (with just a newspaper covering his bits...)

Another important casting notice: A character that doesn't appear until book 7 or 8, but will be in this season...
The parts of Hunter, Hadley’s 4-year-old son and Sookie’s nephew, and an unnamed famous newscaster will be cast.

Hunter is described as a distressed, scared little boy who has a telepathic conversation with Sookie at an aquarium. The part has seven lines, one scene.

The famous newscaster is described as male, aged 40-50, and has one speech in one scene.
Very interesting... (Source) (http://truebloodnet.com/true-blood-season-3-casting-call-episode-309/)

In this article (http://www.ucaecho.net/stories/index.php?id=2370) about Charlaine Harris (the books author) it is mentioned that HBO recently approved True Blood to season 5. A few months ago it was confirmed there would be a 4th season, but other than this I haven't heard anything about season 5, so it's either new or it's mis-information. But if they do a season 5... Quinn and more Alcide!

And finally, upon discussing the 2011 movie Straw Dogs, its director Rod Lurie has this to say about our favourite Swede: (Source) (http://www.examiner.com/x-5235-Tampa-Movie-Examiner~y2010m4d6-Exclusive-interview-with-writerdirector-Rod-Lurie-at-University-of-Tampa)

Alex Skarsgard is going to be the biggest actor on the planet. His presence in Straw Dogs reminds me of the impact that Brad Pitt had in Thelma and Louise.

Mmmm, very nice! It's tragic that JM has to cover that pretty face with the scruff, but he definitely looks like how I pictured Alcide in the shot with Anna Paquin there. :grope:

First shot of Joe Manganiello as Alcide (Source) (http://truebloodnet.com/true-blood-season-3-spoiler-joe-manganiello-sexy-scenes/). Yum! Apparently the crew was amazed by Joe's abs, and he has already shot his first nude scene (yummo!). Link also mentions a bit of the plot involving Alcide.

The latest season 3 promo poster (http://truebloodnet.com/true-blood-season-3-viral-ad-poster-3-fill/) is cute, making reference to 'water cooler' talk.

Spoiler photos (http://truebloodnet.com/spoiler-photos-true-blood-season-3-scenes/) for season 3. Eric in a car... I'm so insanely hoping it's the infamous (in the books) red corvette with the BLDSKR license plate. Please, oh please! Also, Jessica and Pam in a scene together? Yes please!

ASkars, Stephen Moyer and Ryan Kwanten are cover boys (alternate covers) of Details magazine (http://dlisted.com/node/36794) (out on April 13) and they look hot! Some additional shots of Alex (http://justjared.buzznet.com/2010/04/08/alexander-skarsgard-sexiest-arms-in-details-magazine/) have been shown on the Details website. A bit of a teaser/preview has been given of Alex's interview (http://popwatch.ew.com/2010/04/08/alexander-skarsgard-details-cover/) where he mentions his audition for True Blood (done in his hotel room in Mozambique) where he originally auditioned for the role of Bill, and some of his experiences during his 15 months in the Swedish Marines. The cover of the magazine made me giggle because in addition to the smokin' hot pictures of Alex, Steve and Ryan, one of the cover articles is about the male multiple orgasm. hee hee.

Alex has been at the Coachella music festival this weekend with Kate Bosworth, looking cozy. But apparently the paparazzi got to be a bit too much for him - he got very angry with one and had to be restrained by the cops.

The official 3 season poster is here: http://truebloodnet.com/true-blood-season-3-poster-updated/.

Also, the first minisode is online now, featuring Pam, Eric and Ivetta (Eric's new flame?) http://truebloodnet.com/video-true-blood-season-3-minisode-eric-pam/

And finally here is a link to some aparently new scans of the 10th book http://www.theunreadreader.com/2010/04/ditf-ch-1-extras.html?zx=dbce4e69e3ddcfb6

When I saw the minisode I was laughing so hard at Eric's bored reactions and his dismissing Pam so he could 'audition' Yvetta. I was a bit irritated they were bringing her in for Eric's new plaything on the show but after the minisode I'm kind of looking a bit forward to it in a way. And of course, love how he was once again in his Sue Sylvester best. Also, loved the dancer who was doing 'Thriller' moves and the two male auditioners. Plus, Pam always amazing and her reaction to Eric dismissing the sluttiest of the dancers was hilarious. Their banter, as always, hilarious. 'Selfish.' 'Insubordinate.'

Read the rest of the first chapter of DitF. love how Eric confesses his love for Sookie but how it was done in a kind of roundabout, Eric-ish way. Also, I was expecting Victor and/or Felipe to be involved in Eric's being unable to help Sookie, so there wasn't any surprise there. I kind of like how she's so jaded now. It fits.

Also, I noticed that the season 3 poster (which I keep finding impossible to discern whether it's a photograph or a painting, or just really really airbrushed) seems kind of last supper-ish in a way, though it's come to my attention that that would then make Eric the Jesus-ish character, and that just doesn't quite work. I know websites have started picking it apart mercilessly. Some even going so far as to wonder why Bill is the only vampire without his fangs showing.

As far as the first chapter of DitF I'm not sure if it is the real thing, I mean, look at the number of the pages scanned, 303 and it's still the first chapter???. I'll wait untill I have the book in my hands to believe it

I think the season 3 poster is just really really airbrushed. I don't think Eric is meant to be a Jesus-ish character, they simpe put him there because this season is going to be more about him instead of Bill (who I think is not showing his fangs because he is supposed to be a prisoner of Lorena?, The King of Mississipi?. Love the wolf showing behind Eric and the 3 skulls half hidded in the picture.

New book is out next week. :cheer2: The first chapter is up on CH's website if anybody wants to check it out.

I believe that book 9 was recently released in paperback and like the other paperback ones in the series, they have the first chapter in the back of the book. I think that's how it has such high page numbers.

Grrrr. I want to see the minisodes too! Stupid geo blockers. *mutters* I love the fact that Pam is on the s3 poster though. :cheer2:

Will it work if you youtube it? Try http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11GAh_KfyoY. I'm able to get it from any site and I'm in Australia...

I found screencaps from a members only website/bulletin board in which someone has posted a very detailed synopsis of the upcoming book Dead in the Family.

I expect posting the links to the screencaps may be problematic here :shuffle: so if anyone desperately wants to be deeply spoiled, PM me and I'll send you some links to the place that posted the screencaps (not a members only site)and you can spoil yourself rotten.

Wheeee! Thanks! :cheer2: Although this might not have been the smartest thing to watch at office. :lol: Is it June yet?

In spite of the somewhat negative press Alexander Skarsgard has been getting lately with the goings on at Coachella (which, I saw a video of him trying to walk away from the accusing paparazzo and the photog in question, who is even taller than Alex, going after him)... Alex is doing good - he is one of the celebrities in a PSA asking for help for Chile after their earthquake. For info and to see the PSA video that has our favourite vampire in it, go to http://www.iamthecountry.com/. Other celebs involved include Topher Grace, Wilmer Valderamma, Camilla Belle, Demi Lovato and Rosario Dawson, among others.

And regarding True Blood, Alex mentioned, while doing press for Metropia at the Tribeca Film Festival, that:
- Eric will have the chance to avenge someone's death early in the season - someone from his human life. He says 'it may be his father, maybe not.'
- He mentioned that he is not a prude at all, being from Sweden, and has no trouble stripping down if the scene calls for it and it makes sense. He said 'I just shot a very very graphic scene with another guy.' Guesses? My three guesses are:
1) A Lafayette dream sequence.
2) Fun times with Godric since we know there are going to be flashbacks involving our favourite Maker, and in the books it's mentioned that Eric had sex with his (male) maker, though not exactly by choice. I'm guessing Godric wouldn't force him into anything, but I could definitely see a Godric/Eric/other scene happening. Though with Allan Hyde (Godric) being only 20 years old, it may be a bit squicky, no matter how cute he is.
3) In book 3 Eric has to feign interest in a male Mississippi vampire in order to help Sookie out, including 'sharing a coffin' for the day, and IIRC Sookie later sees Eric with a hickey... Which really makes me hope he says his infamous line to her in that scene "I don't like having feelings."

Oh, and this week's promo poster, which made me snicker... Please do not feed the shapeshifters (http://www.trueblood-online.com/season-3/please-do-not-feed-the-shapeshifters/)

True Blood minisode #2 - Jessica (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFAwFtTsgys)
Not as fun as the Eric/Pam one (which will be hard to top) but shows the different layers of Jessica really well.

The newest True Blood promotional poster: Eric gets a private show (http://truebloodnet.com/true-blood-season-3-eric-northman-dancer/). I have never before wanted to be the right arm of a chair, but with the attention his fingers are giving it...

Mariana Klaveno (Lorena) dishes a bit on what to expect regarding her character in season 3 (as well as another character...) (http://www.trueblood-online.com/cast-crew/mariana-klaveno-lorena/mariana-klaveno-says-there-will-be-turbulence-between-bill-and-lorena/)

Cast of True Blood iTunes playlists (http://www.trueblood-online.com/cast-crew/sam-trammell-sam/the-cast-of-true-blood-itunes-playlists-updated/). Last year Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Alan Ball added their favourite playlists to iTunes, and now Alexander Skarsgard, Rutina Wesley, Sam Trammell and Ryan Kwanten have added theirs - available for download/purchase

Also, a reminder, Book 10 was just released yesterday in North America. Please remember to use spoiler tags if talking about the book for the next little bit... I've already accidentally come across the odd spoiler on True Blood fansites.
