Another True Blood filled Sunday! Yay! As some of you may know, the upcoming third season of True Blood is going to focus a little bit less on the vampires and more on the werewolves. Lucky for us Alan Ball and the True Blood crew are giving us all sorts of insider info and teasers on season three. In a recent chat with Alan Ball he filled us fans in on Sookie and the new werewolf, Alcide.
“There is definitely some [sexual] energy between the two of them,” says executive producer Alan Ball of the dynamic between the show’s newest sexy character, werewolf Alcide (One Tree Hill’s Joe Manganiello), and Sookie (Anna Paquin), who team up in season three to track down her kidnapped lover, vampire Bill. “It’s not like either one of them is looking for romance, but they’re thrown into several intense situations [and] it’s hard not to bond on a deeper level.”
It’s probably not too difficult for Sookie to bond with her new furry pal on a sexy level either. “The first shirtless scene [Joe] had I was like, “Who has those abs?” Ball recalls. “He’s in crazy peak physical condition. He’s eating nothing but pure protein. And of course, this being True Blood, he’s already shot his first naked scene. Hello, werewolves when they shift — no clothes!”
Oh hell yea! There’s no doubt in my mind that they are going to make season three even sexier than the first two seasons, and man, those two were damn hot!
