With the smoke still cooling from season five, the good people at True Blood are not wasting any time. They have already made their first hire for season six: Rutger Hauer.
According to TV Line, Hauer will play Macklyn, "a mysterious and sinister figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason." It sounds like he also will have close ties to Warlow - if he is not one in the same with Warlow.
Hauer has a storied history with genre projects, being best known for his role in Blade Runner. His recent projects include Batman Begins, Hobo With a Shotgun, The Rite, and Dracula 3D.
True Blood will return to HBO this summer.
