[TV] Rutger Hauer Spooks Bon Temps In “True Blood’s” Season 6

Hobo With A Shotgun (V) - 4

“True Blood” has made its first major Season 6 hire, with vet Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner, Hobo with a Shotgun) joining the HBO smash as a series regular, TVLine reports.

Hauer will play Macklyn, a mysterious and sinister figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason.

Hauer is well known for his portrayal of Blade Runner‘s Roy Batty, a renegade robot trying to evade capture in Ridley Scott’s classic sci-fi film. But the Dutch actor has a varied resume that includes parts in movies like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Batman Begins and Sin City and guest roles in TV’s “Smallville” and “Alias”.

True Blood’s sixth season is slated to premiere in June 2013.

    Awesome! I love Rutger Hauer.

    i figured Rutger would have been cast to play Warlow. he’d be perfect from what i know of the Warlow character. but Rutger’s awesome!

      Him as Warlow was the first thing that popped into my head too.

  • djblack1313

    i think there’s a chance Rutger will still end up being Warlow. someone on another site reminded me that in the (from under the bed/floorboard) letter regarding Warlow, it says “M. Warlow”. so me thinks that the “M” will stand for Macklyn. Macklyn Warlow! he’d be perfect and charismatic enough to play Warlow.

    I thought of Warlow too. Since he’s probably going to be the main focus next season, chances are he was casted first so this would make sense. Plus, it mentions the connection to Sookie and Jason which is also why it is likely.
