Oh, sure, you might know him as the sexy, often shirtless Alcide Herveaux on HBO's hit show, True Blood, with Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Ryan Kwanten, Carrie Preston and Alexander Skarsgard, but Joe Manganiello was racking up an unlikely fan following for a recurring character, Brad, on CBS's How I Met Your Mother all the way back in 2006, when True Blood was still a mere twinkle in creator Alan Ball's eye.
Anna Paquin, 30, and Stephen Moyer, 42, of HBO's True Blood are celebrating the birth of their newborn twins — their first children together and the first for Paquin. Moyer has two children, Billy, 12, and Lilac, 10, from previous relationships.
Saturday’s True Blood panel at Comic-Con 2012 turned up the heat in San Diego with some steamy revelations by Joe Manganiello. "I sexually eviscerate another cast member in one of the episodes coming up," Manganiello told an excited crowd.
The most pressing issue heading into the third season of True Blood was whether or not they once again pull one of their golden credit sequences and replace it with something lesser, like they did with Big Love earlier this year.
Despite a slow start, Season One of HBO’s vampire fiction True Blood turned out to be as sweet and sticky as the red beverage of choice for its downtrodden protagonists. A southern gothic with a blend of macabre humor and dark romance sprinkled with copious amounts of sex, gore and recreational drug use, it was catnip for lovers of the undead everywhere.
The highly anticipated True Blood season 4 premiere proved to be a delicious feast of A+ to sink your teeth into. The season three finale was laced with the theme of resurrection; each character searching for a way to rise from the ashes of their current state of being, Sookie Steakhouse (Anna Paquin) more so than any one else.
