      New season starts June 2010. Just incase anyone wanted to know and hadn't seen it yet, Alcide has been cast!!!!!!! He will be played by Joe Manganiello. Looks like pretty good casting to me. I checked out some of the images available on Google image search and he's pretty hot. Crystal Norris has been cast too. She'll be played by someone named Lindsay Pulsipher. I didn't look into her too much cause it wasn't a casting I was particularly excited about since they are bringing her into the story earlier than she appears in the books.

        Oh and Franklin Mott was cast. He's being played by James Frain, not a good looking guy, doesn't really fit the description of Franklin in the books in my opinion. Crystal doesn't really fit the description either but thats what creative license is about.

          I like Alcide's casting. Of course he was way hotter in my head, but he'll do. (I still don't like Bill, he's way to old and not attractive for me). I was picturing Alcide more as a Colin Farrell-type, when he was super hot a few years ago.

          I just looked up Crystal's person too and she doesn't fit at all. She's blonde! I always pictured a little dark-haired person, like Christina Ricci or something.


          And that isn't waht I pictured Franklin to look like either, but honestly, I completely forgot about his character, so he didn't matter to me.

            I like the casting for Alcide. I think that he is pretty close to what I pictured. I have seen him before. Was he on One Tree Hill, maybe?

            The actress they cast for Crystal was not at all what I pictured! I also pictured her little with dark hair. Maybe I will like her once the season starts. I am sure the story line won't be the same as the books anyway.

            It's funny...I watched the show before I read the books and I could not picture the Bill in the show in the books. I really don't like Bill in the books and the way he is described and acts is not at all like the Bill in the show. If I had read the books first I wouldn't have liked the person they casted in the show.

            I can't picture the Tara in the show having a relationship with Franklin Mott. That might be kind of weird for me.

              The guy they cast for Alcide is on One Tree Hill, he plays some bartender. I've never watched that show.

              Maybe the actress for Crystal will dye her hair, or wear a wig. The actress that plays Arlene wears a wig to have the red hair as described in the book so maybe they will do the same with Crystal, who knows.

              I'm not sure I ever really gave much thought to Bill's casting. I watched the show before reading the books too. I guess I was just so used to Bill on the show that I automatically pictured him without ever trying to picture anything else based on the description.

              I can't see the Tara from the show with someone like Franklin either, but then again, maybe that is why they cast him the way they did, to make him more dark and dangerous looking instead of an old "regal" looking gentleman the way he is in the books. I don't think they intend on keeping Franklin around too long anyway.

                Oooh.. I will have to check out these new cast members! Thanks for posting up about them :) I too picture Crystal with dark hair... hmm.

                Sookie book #9 comes out in paperback on March 30th for those waiting to get it. The #10 book in hardcover is out May 4th.

                Awhile back someone had mentioned another vampire series to read called the Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward. I bought all these books and read them and have to say the are FANTASTIC. All 7 books. FANTASTIC. They have taken over as my favourite vampire series but I won't really post more about them as this is the True Blood thread :) That being said, I'm really looking forward to season 3!

                    I love both True Blood and the Sookie Stackhouse books. I'm actually reading book 5 right now. I got them for Christmas! I'm so excited for the new season of the show.
