Who would have thought we'd make it to thread 2? Go us!

First up, a re-post of the link provided in the last thread to an Inside True Blood blog (http://www.inside-true-blood-blog.com/) where Alan mentions his favourite storyline of season 4 is the Eric one! So that sounds hella good for us ASkars fans.

More spoilers:
Casting spoilers for episode 5 (http://www.trueblood-news.com/true-blood-season-4-ep-5-spoilerscasting-calls)
Info on Alcide and Jesus. (http://www.tvline.com/2011/02/ask-ausiello-spoilers-on-true-blood-glee-gossip-girl-community-house-and-more/)
Spoilery set photo somewhat pertaining to Sam. (http://www.trueblood-news.com/fiery-new-true-blood-season-4-spoiler)

Sad news for all of us who are fans of the books - Charlaine Harris says the next two will likely be the last in the series. (http://www.trueblood-news.com/sookie-stackhouse-novels-must-end-says-charlaine-harris) Boo!

ASkars has been spotted out an about a lot lately (and occasionally looking quite domesticated with Kate (http://justjared.buzznet.com/2011/02/05/alexander-skarsgard-kate-bosworth-supermarket-mates/)), but the best is that he, his father and brother Gustaf were photographed together (http://www.trueblood-news.com/alexander-skarsgard-family-at-the-kings-speech-party) at a party for The King's Speech (Kate was there too). Yummy Skarsdgardian goodness. Also, hilariously, photos have surfaced of Alex going for a run, and he is quite the dorky looking runner. (http://justjared.buzznet.com/photo-gallery/2516837/alexander-skarsgard-runyon-canyon-runner-07/) Kind of reminds me of Phoebe from Friends (though his dorkiness is in the hands).

Also for Alex, he's in serious talks to star in the movie Kon-Tiki (http://skarsgardnews.com/?p=9447) based on the true story of a Norwegian explorer. He's been offered the part, but has not yet accepted it.

True Blood won the SAG for best TV Stunt Ensemble. YAY! (http://www.trueblood-news.com/true-blood-wins-sag-award-for-television-stunt-ensemble)

Sadly, Joe Manganiello won't be the new Superman. (http://www.trueblood-news.com/joe-manganiello-wont-be-the-next-superman) Though I saw him on TMZ recently and he said he couldn't accept because of True Blood - they wanted him to miss half the season for the show. So either he was trying to make it seem like it was his choice not to do it though he really just didn't get it, or he just really wanted to focus on TB instead. Or the contract for TB was tough to work around. I kind of figure that filming schedule is probably one of the major reasons ASkars didn't get Thor - they were filming it during TB filming.

The crazies at HBO almost didn't pick up TB as a series! (http://www.haaretz.com/weekend/week-s-end/life-after-tony-soprano-1.342711) Bet they're glad they weren't idiots...

Finally, Men's Health magazine has listed Anna and Stephen as one of their top couples of 2011. (http://www.menshealth.com/best-life/anna-paquin-stephen-moyer)

HBO didn't pick up Mad Men either. Matthew Weiner the creator of Mad Men was the exec. producer and writer for the Sopranos for a few seasons.

And don't forget HBO decided not to renew the series Rome for a 3rd season. Stupid move because became a breakout hit but they had already made the decision to pull the plug.

They say we'll be seeing 'another side' to him. Personally, I hope it's his bare backside. (Preferably in combination with Eric's bare backside).

Alright, cause I haven't done one of these in about 2 weeks...

I sincerely wish I were attending Paleyfest in Beverly Hills next Saturday. Because the list of cast attending is pretty much everyone in the opening credits (http://www.trueblood-news.com/true-blood-paleyfest-attendees-announced) (Plus Alan Ball)

Kevin Alejandro, “Jesus Velasquez”
Marshall Allman, “Tommy Mickens”
Alan Ball, Creator / Executive Producer
Chris Bauer, “Andy Bellefleur“
Kristin Bauer van Straten, “Pam De Beaufort“
Nelsan Ellis, “Lafayette Reynolds”
Ryan Kwanten, “Jason Stackhouse”
Todd Lowe, “Terry Bellefleur”
Joe Manganiello, “Alcide Herveaux”
Stephen Moyer, “Bill Compton”
Anna Paquin, “Sookie Stackhouse”
Jim Parrack, “Hoyt Fortenberry”
Carrie Preston, “Arlene Fowler”
Alexander Skarsgard, “Eric Northman”
Sam Trammell, “Sam Merlotte”
Rutina Wesley, “Tara Thornton”
Deborah Ann Woll, “Jessica Hamby”

Werewolf spoilers: (http://www.trueblood-news.com/theres-a-new-packmaster-in-town) They've cast the Shreveport packmaster. Definitely doesn't seem like they're following the books with this one. I wish this guy would have been the Mississippi one, and have Col Flood back in Shreveport, but oh well. If the show gets a 5th season we likely won't have this guy around for very long...

Spoiler photos from the set. (http://www.trueblood-online.com/cast-crew/sam-trammell-sam/photos-on-the-set-of-s4-of-true-blood/#more-61278) All I'll say is Andy Bellefleur is looking buff!!

Interview with Michael McMillian (Steve Newlin). (http://www.inside-true-blood-blog.com/blog/2011/2/18/an-interview-with-michael-mcmillian.html) He's Team Eric (though probably because he and Alex have a huge bromance going on). Michael also discusses the True Blood comics, of which he is a writer. He also says he thinks it's significant that Steve and Sarah are still alive on the show, meaning they'll likely (and hopefully) be back at some point.

More on Michael - he'll be guest starring on the June 22 episode of Hot in Cleveland (http://www.trueblood-news.com/michael-mcmillian-to-guest-on-hot-in-cleveland) as Jane Leeves' long lost son.

Hee hee, inside Lafayette's bathroom. (http://www.inside-true-blood-blog.com/blog/2011/2/24/lafayettes-bathroom.html)

And finally, ASkars stuff:
There's a 30 foot billboard of him on Sunset Blvd, (http://www.trueblood-online.com/cast-crew/alexander-skarsgard-eric/alexander-skarsgard-billboard-on-sunset-boulevard-in-los-angeles/) one of his Hickey Freeman ads. Yum! Surprisingly I haven't heard of any accidents being caused yet by this distraction.

Alex recently attended (http://www.trueblood-online.com/cast-crew/alexander-skarsgard-eric/photos-from-two-events-attended-by-alexander-skarsgard-last-night/) the opening of a Tom Ford store on Rodeo Drive (he usually wears Tom Ford suits on red carpets). After that he went to a party honouring the 10 best picture nominees at the Oscars. It's always nice to see Alex out of his everyday clothes.

And continuing the Family Skarsgard trips to the US, MamaSkars and little brother Valter (http://justjared.buzznet.com/photo-gallery/2522862/alexander-skarsgard-griddle-cafe-mom-and-brother-02/) have been hanging out with Alex in LA.

I loved "Rome"; gritty, historical, sexy and well- made. One of my favorite series of the last decade; too bad it ran only 2 seasons.
And to keep somewhat on topic: I am glad Ms. Harris is rounding up the series. Sookie books had quite a few ups and downs, and hopefully the fact that she is commited to finish will bring up the best in C.H. Hope she ends with a bang! :hat1:

He looks so young in that clip! It's freaky how much he looks like he did 10 years ago (http://celebrity-photos.elliottback.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/alexander-skarsgard-05-450x600.jpg) in that clip.

There's actually a lot of goodies to come from Paleyfest (most regarding Eric, which is promisiing).
Red carpet pictures (http://www.trueblood-online.com/cast-crew/alan-ball/true-blood-cast-looks-absolutely-fabulous-on-paleyfest-red-carpet/)

Videos of the entire panel. (http://www.trueblood-online.com/events/paleyfest-2011/video-the-true-blood-paleyfest-2011-panel/) The screams for Alex just go on and on!)

I loved the crazy fan experiences, especially Joe's, where someone wanted him to lick her wound because wolf saliva apparently helps heal. Chris's, where someone just wanted to let him know a bird had crapped on him, Anna's about people pretending to be interested in her when they really just want a photo with Stephen, and Alex's about someone offering to pay him to marry their daughter.

Spoilery stuff that was revealed:

- Joe mentions that Debbie is still alive and at large...
- Sam has a new love interest and will sober up
- There will be a baby this season (seeming to indicate that Arlene will give birth), also hopefully indicating that they will jump forward a bit in the timeline, so we're not still like 6 weeks into the entire thing
- Andy may be interested in the V in the station where he works...
- Jason should NOT be in charge of an entire village of meth addicts
- The fairy tale can't last forever for Jessica and Hoyt
- Bill and QSA were not the only ones involved in the fight at the end of the season finale
- Sookie went off on an adventure, and when she gets back, some things are different, but she still doesn't really know how to control the 'microwave fingers'
- Tara is pretty stable this year
- Eric is amnesiac, and there are 'some friendly people in Bon Temps who are willing to help him out.' He lost his memory by messing with the wrong people.
- Early on there's a great Eric/Bill flashback. I'm wondering if it's the '80s one?
- Fiona Shaw will be starring as Marnie, and Gary Cole will also be a guest star.
- Dennis O'Hare will be back at some point, and he'll be pissed (Alex hilariously then said 'please don't bring Russell back!'
- Godric will be back, either in flashback or dream form
- it will be very hard for Sookie/Bill to come back from what happened in season 3.

In one of the clips Alex mentions his 'wonderful daughter, Pam' almost making Kristin cry - I love Alex and Kristin's relationship, how close they are. Also, Alex, right there on stage, requests from Alan Ball that we get some Eric/Pam and Godric flashbacks - that's one thing he'd really like to do.
- Another of my favourite bits is Ryan explaining Jason perfectly, saying how it's kind of funny how Jason is the one character who would love to be a superhero, yet he's pretty much the only one without any kind of power. It does kind of explain what drives him quite well.
- Marshall made me laugh when he said he would love to turn into a talking parrot and follow Lafayette around, repeating what he says, or turn into a mosquito and get into V.

Apparently Alex and Sam were the only two cast members to sign autographs for fans for a full 45 minutes, most of the others leaving after about 15, though Stephen and Joe came back out for a while.

My favourite bit is this clip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SA4AWMY5vg&feature=player_embedded) of Anna describing how Sookie sees Eric, and Alex's reactions to her comments. He cracks me up.

It's nice to see the whole cast interacting with each other. It appears that Sam is the only cast member to have worked with everyone else in the cast. When they said who they'd want to work with who they haven't already. Ryan wants to have Jason around Arlene (Carrie reminded him that Jason did have a nail gun to her head). Rutina wants to see some Tara and Pam action which Alan says is going to happen. Alex is adorable in saying how much he loves working with Kristin, but then tells Todd that he misses him. Stephen wants Bill, Terry and Arlene to get together to play Trivial Pursuit.

As for other stuff...
Sam Trammell and his long time girlfriend are expecting twins (http://www.trueblood-news.com/oh-my-its-twins-for-sam-trammell-and-missy-yager).

Apparently Alex used to date Amanda Seyfried, (http://www.elle.com/Pop-Culture/Cover-Shoots/Amanda-In-Wonderland/%28imageIndex%29/3/%28play%29/false) but it ended because she was too involved with her boyfriend (the fiance in Mamma Mia). They must have met during the filming or promotion for Mamma Mia (where his dad played one of her 3 dads).

Love the video with Eric walking around shirtless! So yummy and it confirms that the best storyline of all will happen this season. I just wish it was more true to the book and he was totally naked! That's how I remember it being in the book, at least. :shuffle:

On the back of the book in its synopsis it says he's naked, but actually in the book he's wearing jeans (with red speedo undies underneath). The only kind of 'not true to the book' part is the shoes - Eric is barefoot in the book (Sookie cleans his cut feet). In this he's wearing comfy looking loafers.
