Blood-Sucking Lizard King Cast for 'True Blood'


True Blood CastingIt’s no secret True Blood went off the rails quite a few seasons ago. This is not a criticism, the campy, totally over-the-top sex and gore is part of what makes the show so great, but this morning’s news may be a bit too much, even for True Blood.

Yesterday FEARnet updated you on a new vampire added to the cast, and now TVLine is reporting that Luke Grimes from Taken 2 and All the Boys Love Mandy Lane will be playing the “Jim Morrison of vampires.” Ugh.

More details from TV Line: Grimes will play “ … the recurring role of James, a circa ’70s-made vamp who is smart, spiritual and emotionally deeper than any other bloodsucker we’ve seen before … Picture a cross between Jim Morrison and Gary Clark Jr. with even more of a poet’s edge. The dude’s every women’s dream come true, and he doesn’t even know it.”

Double ugh. No one needs to hear vampire poetry. Let's hope they can turn this around.

What do you think about the new cast members?
