I just hope we eventually get to see Sookie's roommate used in the show (how am I forgetting her name!?) and that she has Bob with her. I want to see one of those things done where the witches re-enact a situation with a dead person. Can't remember that now either, too much studying tonight I guess! I don't know what they would do it for anytime soon since Hadley doesn't seem to be following the same path on the show as in the books. I have a feeling that the closest we will come is some trippy moments featuring Lafayette and Jesus. :rolleyes:

Sookie's roommate was Amelia Broadway and the thing you're talking about is an ectoplasmic reconstruction. Yeah, I'm a SVM dork.

My thoughts - I don't think TV QSA will turn Hadley, but I think she may die at some point, and since Sookie and Hadley have reconnected, Sookie will be even more 'gung ho' to sort things out. I don't think they'll deal with the were issues of book 6, since I don't think Hadley will be turned. Actually, if the show makes it to season 6 I have no idea what they'll even do for a storyline, since I don't think Hadley will be turned, and I doubt they're going to do the whole Peter Threadgill thing, since QSA already married for political allegiances in the show. Unless they focus more on the whole Pelt thing...

I just REALLY want to see Amelia - she was one of my favourite characters in the books and I think she's a great match for Sookie to be around. Plus, think of all the Pam we'd get! And of course, Bob.

What happened to Debbie on the show? Alcide mentioned her being missing and Sookie gave a guilty look but I thought they just ran her off. In the book she is killed with Eric's help. I suspect if that happens it will be next season since it took place during the amnesia episode. I just thought it was odd that they brought up her missing which so mimics the books after her death when they haven't killed her on the show, makes me wonder if they will ever revisit Debbie at all.

I think Sookie's look was with regards to the fact that she beat the sh!t out of Debbie and made her run off. Revenge is a coming!!

Pure awesomeness...
The category was Cable Guys for $1000 (he's a good $$$ one!!!)
Answer: "Alexander Skarsgard as Eric Northman, an old and powerful Nordic Vampire."
Question: "What is True Blood?"
Alex's response (when webmistress from Skarsgardnews told him): "Mentioned on Jeopardy... guess I've finally arrived."

Super cute video of an actress on Battleship with Alex. (http://skarsgardnews.com/?p=8393) He's posing for a picture with her and the cameraperson asks 'is there anything you want to say?' and she goes "he's completely awesome!" and Alex gets the cutest smile. Another picture of him with another cast member. (http://justjared.buzznet.com/2010/09/15/alexander-skarsgard-hawaiian-sun/) Looks like he's in soccer duds.

And his new short hair looks GORGEOUS!

He was also sort of mentioned on Craig Ferguson during Kristen Bell's interview. They talk about Twilight/True Blood and Craig says his wive said "I like the big Danish Viking one," and Kristen and Craig joke that she must be a perv because TB is porn. Hee. (it's only a few seconds starting at about 6:15) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExhoRZ4elHo)

And finally, the European press tour for True Blood will start in a week. (http://skarsgardnews.com/?p=8388) Don't know who all is going to be on it, but Alex is confirmed, and according to Alex, the tour "looks like UK, Poland, Germany and Sweden." If it starts next week, wonder how that's going to work out with the filming of Battleship, since he's only been on set for a week, he's one of the main characters, and he starts back up again on True Blood in just 2 months (mid November)

Oh, and it has been confirmed that Alex will not be guest starring on Castle.

I'm sure 2 months is enough to get done with what he needs to do for Battleship.

Anyone read the new Sookie short story? I only got a chance to flip through it while at the bookstore but it seems like it's a Pam/Sookie/buddy road trip kind of story which definitely has potential to be all kinds of awesome. I guess I'd better put the book on my library wish list...

I did the same. There's a stipper pole involved. And she and Pam keep the clothes. :P

I haven`t. What`s the name of the short story and the book that it`s in

Apparently there`s talk of making a True Blood movie. (http://www.cinemablend.com/new/True-Blood-Becoming-A-Movie-20721.html) It`s still a rumour, but the source says that Alan Ball would direct it himself, and it would only happen if HBO was okay with the movie being released with a hard R rating (of course). It would happen after another season or two if it happened at all.

I kind of doubt it would happen. It would either be a lot of re-hash because movie-goers aren`t necessarily TB fans, or movie-goers just would be a bit lost with the Sookieverse.

Alex`s new birthday auction is up (http://skarsgardnews.com/?page_id=8428). It`s jewellery inspired by the books. A bloody bullet chain, and a cuff engraved with `min alskare`(My lover in Swedish). Hee, the site actually has a soundclip of him saying it. Yum!

TB cast shares their hopes for Season 4. (http://www.trueblood-news.com/true-blood-casts-hopes-for-season-4) My fave bit is Alex`s claim that it is only fair for the rest of the cast to strip down, after he, Anna and Stephen did the Rolling Stone cover. I must say, I concur.

Joe Manganiello talks about season 4, and his desire for a certain music icon to play a certain relative of Sookie`s. (http://www.trueblood-online.com/cast-crew/joe-manganiello-alcide/video-joe-manganiello-talks-about-season-4/)

The book is called "Death's Excellent Vacation". I can't remember the name of the story, I think it was something like "Two Blondes"?

Okay, you know True Blood has 'made it' when its parodies on Sesame Street! May I present... True Mud (http://www.trueblood-news.com/sesame-streets-true-mud).

The sexiness that is Ryan AND Joe give dating advice (http://www.trueblood-news.com/dating-advice-from-ryan-kwanten-joe-manganiello). Is there any advice on how to date one of them? Please?

Ryan just premiered his new movie Legend of the Guardians (http://www.trueblood-online.com/cast-crew/ryan-kwanten/ryan-kwanten-talks-about-his-character-kludd/) and talked about his character Kludd, Jason Stackhouse and his favourite shows as a kid.

And, the most awesome thing ever... you can win actual costumes from the show!! (http://www.trueblood-online.com/behind-the-scenes/costumes/true-blood-halloween-inspiration-straight-from-the-set-sweepstakes/) Included are:
- Maryanne's wedding dress (complete with bull horn hole in the stomach and black blood)
- Eric's t-shirt and leather jacket from the were fight scene (with blood stains)
- Tara's Victorian nightgown that Franklin dressed her in (bloody)
- Bill's Henley and jacket from the premiere episode
- Sookie's white trench coat from Godric's (bloody)
- Sookie's bloody Merlotte's t-shirt
- Monogramed Russell Edgington pyjamas worn by Franklin in bed with Tara (bloody, since she did tear into his neck...)
- Lorena's death dress. No further explanation needed.

I can't remember what magazine my sister said it was in, but apparently Alex has broken up with Kate and is looking to date "outside the industry."

Ahem. I am single. I just thought I'd put that out there....

09-23-2010, 02:42 AM
:COP: Hmmmmm....cost of plane ticket to Sweden

09-23-2010, 05:01 AM
Maybe he should also try dating a man? I can arrange to become single if he agrees to it!

09-23-2010, 05:14 AM
A-hem. I offer myself in the name of interfaith harmony. As one does :saint: Don't you guys want peace on Earth? Vote for Orable: Queen of Hottistan AND Empress of the Vikings :P

I'd like to apply for the position of his new girlfriend. Or heck, even though its not my style, I'd sign up just to be a girl 'friend' *wink wink*.

I sent a query to Ted Casablanca regarding the talk of the break up, so hopefully he answers it in his Awful Truth posts. He does quite often seem to be in the know...

And speaking of Alex, a bit of news on him...

SOS Childrens Villages are giving their thanks (http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/acclaimed-actor-alexander-skarsgard-raises-funds-for-sos-childrens-villages-103637264.html) to him for bringing attention to them (and $35,000) from the Battle of the Fang. It's a nice write-up.

Alex is going to be in Sweden on October 2 (probably for his TB press tour) and will be taking part in an auction for his Hammarby football club where he will be providing TB (and Straw Dogs) memorabilia for the auction and will be there in person. (http://skarsgardnews.com/?p=8447) And adorably he also tries to pimp out the team's online shop. He sent a note to Skarsgardnews to give them a heads up on the event. And from it we now know that he ends his emails simply 'A'. Personally, I think that if he really wanted to help them raise money to keep the team alive, he should have auctioned off himself as a date.

And in other actor news...
Ryan, along with Jim Sturgess and Zack Snyder answered fan questions while doing press for Legend of the Guardians. (http://blog.moviefone.com/2010/09/23/ryan-kwanten-jim-sturgess-and-zack-snyder-on-playing-owls-and/) Included: difference between live action vs animation, the mindset required to play an owl, and Ryan's craziest fan experience. Hint: it involves sperm.
