British actor Rob Kazinsky has joined the cast of HBO‘s vampire drama “True Blood” as new regular for the upcoming sixth season, reports Deadline.

He will play Ben, a highly charismatic faerie who takes a liking to Sookie (and vice-versa) and helps Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Jason (Ryan Kwanten) delve deeper into the mystery of their parents’ murders. Kazinsky will next be seen in Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim.

In the HBO series that jumped the shark, “Local waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), however, knows how it feels to be an outcast. “Cursed” with the ability to listen in on people’s thoughts, she’s also open-minded about the integration of vampires – particularly when it comes to Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), a handsome 173-year-old living up the road. But as Sookie is drawn into a series of mysteries surrounding Bill’s arrival in Bon Temps, that tolerance will be put to the test.

    I really don’t get the whole its “jumped the shark” bullcrap. Have you read the books? They still have maintained some aspects of the books, but it hasn’t jumped the shark… It may not be for everyone, but it is still the most watched show on HBO. It gets about over 2 million more viewers per episode than game of thrones (which is also bad ass)…its a fun show, with great gore, tits, and its fun to watch. I just don’t get the hate from BD or Joblo/arrowinthehead. Its stupid that those who are supposed to love horror are trying to shit on and dismiss a show that really started to bring horror to television in a big way. You pimp the shit out of gay ass pg13 shot like twilight, but shit on a show that at least respects vampire mythology? I even read on joblo the assumption its the last season…the show is so profitable and has a die hard fan base…its just so damn stupid the disrespect TB is given by horror sites. Shame on you. Why would anyone want to see a popular show that delivers the blood and tits and violence that every horror fan lives for?
