TV: Vampire Lawyers Hold Court in ‘True Blood’

Deadline is reporting that “True Blood” has made its second major Season 4 hire: “Dexter” actress Courtney Ford is joining the HBO smash as a recurring. The actress — who ironically just completed a stint on another vampire drama, The CW’s “The Vampire Diaries” — will play Portia Bellefleur, a classic Southern beauty who runs her own law practice. The character is the sister of Bon Temps’ bumbling detective Andy (Chris Bauer). The news comes just days after Irish actress Fiona Shaw was cast in the series regular role of Marnie, a self-loathing medium who becomes possessed by a witch.
