TV: New ‘True Blood’ Clip Teases Tension Between Eric and Bill

Continuing to push their forthcoming fourth season of “True Blood”, HBO has released a fourth “waiting sucks” teaser clip. The other week you saw a tied up Ryan Kwanten as Jason Stackhous, a shirtless Eric (Alexander Skarsgard), and Sam Trammell with the first appearance of Janina Gavankar as Luna. This morning we’ve got a new look at Stephen Moyer as vampire Bill Compton and Alexander Skarsgard as Eric.

Daniel Buran, Dane DeHaan, Rebecca Wisocky, Janina Gavankar (“The Gates”), Alexandra Breckenridge (“Dirt,” “Life Unexpected”), Vedette Lim (“As the World Turns”), Christina Moore, Neil Hopkins (“Lost”), and Chris Butler (“The Good Wife”) all join the old cast. Set in the fictional town of Bon Temps, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), a waitress, discovers a new world of creatures when she falls in love with Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), a vampire.
The 173-year-old vampire’s return to his ancestral home of Bon Temps has been anything but tranquil. In love with Sookie – and struggling to reconcile their complicated lives – Bill also finds himself warding off threats from a growing cadre of powerful vampires. Throw in the responsibilities of his newly turned fledgling Jessica, and it’s almost enough to make Bill yearn for the good old days of lurking in the shadows.
