Bon Temps is about to bear witness to quite an anomaly: a vampire with more substance than style.
TVLine reports that “True Blood” has tapped “Brothers & Sisters” alum Luke Grimes, pictured, play the recurring role of James, a circa ’70s-made vamp who is smart, spiritual and emotionally deeper than any other bloodsucker we’ve seen before.
Picture a cross between Jim Morrison and Gary Clark Jr. with even more of a poet’s edge. The dude’s every women’s dream come true, and he doesn’t even know it, says the site.
Grimes, also star of All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, is set to debut at the midway point of the HBO hit’s sixth season (which is slated to premiere in June).
Also joining the HBO smash in Season 6 is acting vet Rutger Hauer (as a mysterious figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason), “Rubicon’s” Arliss Howard (as Louisiana Governor Truman Burrell), “Friday Night Lights” grad Jurnee Smollett-Bell (as do-gooder Nicole), “90210‘s” Amelia Rose Blaire (as Howard’s onscreen daughter) and “House‘s” Karolina Wydra (as a badass vamp).
