With the show's seventh and final season premiering on Sunday, it's time to take a look back at the vampires, shapeshifters, werewolves, and plain ole' human residents of Bon Temps that have taken a big bite out of our hearts.

'True Blood' Heading To Broadway As A Musical?

June 19th, 2014 4:32pm EDT
True Blood
A stage musical based on hit HBO series True Blood is in the works, and series star Stephen Moyer is one of the men behind the adaptation.

Moyer joined with composer Nathan Barr with the hopes of bringing "True Blood" to Broadway, and the two already have some of the music written, but first the adaptation must be greenlit by HBO.

Despite proving his chops musically last fall in NBC's live telecast of "The Sound of Music," Moyer says he won't be reprising his role as vampire Bill Compton if the musical concept becomes a reality.

“Working in Broadway is tough and we (Moyer and wife/co-sta...

Reliving 'The Sound of Music Live!' (Review)

December 6th, 2013 10:07pm EST
The Sound of Music Live
Although The Sound of Music is not my favorite musical of all time (or even in the top 20), I was beyond excited to see that NBC was reviving the live televised musical. If this was successful, other musicals would surely get adaptations. Of course, it’s NBC so the likelihood of it being successful was not great. Plus, the casting was questionable. Carrie Underwood as Maria? The role doesn’t really lend itself to a country twang. Stephen Moyer of all people as the handsome Captain Von Trapp? Lord no. But I’m willing to give it a chance, especially since some of my favorite Broadway voices a...

Fans of erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" went ballistic earlier this week when the announcements of the two leads in the film adaptation of the book came from none other than author E.L. James herself.

When people found out that Dakota Johnson, the aspiring actress daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, landed the lead role of Anastasia Steele and Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam would be play the domineering Christian Grey, they spoke up and started petitions to get the roles re-cast.

Unfortunately, Hollywood doesn't work that way and a lot of factors had to be considered du...

HBO Vampire Drama 'True Blood' To End After Seventh Season

True Blood
HBO's hit vampire drama True Blood is set to come to an end following its seventh season, the network confirmed on Tuesday.

The show, which stars real-life couple Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, began in 2008 and has, *ahem*, killed it in the ratings for the pay TV network.

"True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO," said Michael Lombardo, HBO's head of programming. "(Creator) Alan Ball took the books by Charlaine Harris, assembled a brilliant cast led by the magnificent Anna Paquin in the role of Sookie Stackhouse, and crafted a show that has taken its many devoted fan...

Stephen Moyer wants to sink his teeth into a gay storyline on his hit vampire series True Blood after having "an awful lot of fun" filming a steamy scene with Sam Trammell.

Moyer jumped at the chance to go topless with co-star Trammell for the racy dream sequence, and admits he has asked bosses to put him in a similar scene with Alexander Skarsgard, who plays his onscreen adversary Eric.

He tells The Advocate, "We had an awful lot of fun that day, and I happen to think Sam's a very good-looking man. Not that that particular scene was a challenge, but anything that seems like it could be...

Stephen Moyer, who plays Bill, told The Advocate he has definitely thought about the two vampires getting down in dirty in bed: "I’ve been asking myself that question for a long time. Alex (Skarsgard) and I would absolutely embrace that. Last year, when Sookie had her fantasy about the two of them with her, we even suggested it. Of course, Bill and Eric together isn’t necessarily Sookie’s fantasy."

Get ready for a bloody good time this summer as the season premiere of HBO's True Blood kicks off June 10. Beware, the new trailer seems to have a spoiler or two in it, so if you're one of those "I don't want to know" people, you've been warned.

Judging from this new trailer, it looks like the underground Vampire Authority is pissed as human-vampire relations have broken down. We also get a glimpse of Chris Meloni in action and as usual Sookie (Anna Paquin) seems to be in the thick of it all.

The actress, who is currently expecting her first child with husband Stephen Moyer, admits she sometimes feels insecure about her physical quirks.

However, Paquin insists she'd think twice before undergoing surgery as she'd have fewer acting opportunities if her looks were more generic.

'Top Gear' (US) Recap: Building (And Destroying) Limos

This week on History's Top Gear, Adam, Tanner and Rutledge try to go high-class when they build limos for the Emmy Awards, and fail miserably while we laugh at their pain. Yes, it's another week on Top Gear.

Tanner's limo is based on a 1987 Corvette, because he wants his creation to be "all about performance" and "able to do a burnout." Yep, that's Tanner. Unsurprisingly, it's bright red and only slightly less of an eyesore than Jeremy Clarkson's attempt at a limo. Rutledge calls it "a rolling sauna of exhaust fumes."

Fans of the hit BBC series - those of us sitting at home with our Jeremy Clarkson books and 'I Am The Stig' T-shirts, and yes, I am one - have heard rumblings about a US import and almost immediately worried one would go south (see: the American adaptation of Coupling, etc.) Yet after a false start (a busted NBC pilot hosted by Adam Carolla), History Channel made the concept a reality two years ago.

And guess what? It's not a nightmare. In fact, it's pretty good.

Jack Davenport Takes Center Stage

Smash
NBC's Smash is full of stars, but the one you don't know - that you should know - is British actor Jack Davenport.

In the ambitious new series (starting February 6 at 10), he plays Derek Wills, director of the Marilyn Monroe musical and not the kind of man who'll be winning a congeniality award anytime soon. Derek is complimentary one minute and cringeworthy the next. He's the kind of boss we'd all hate to have but whose results can't be dismissed either. It's a role where many actors could focus on the negative and make him a tyrannical, unlikeable mess. Davenport, however, brings ...
