Cast Releases Important Message About 'True Blood' Withdrawal (Video)

June 15th, 2011 11:00am EDT
True Blood
The stars of "True Blood" have filmed a series of comedy sketches aimed at fans suffering "withdrawal symptoms" while the hit vampire TV show is off-air.

Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Ryan Kwanten and Joe Manganiello are among the actors who have recorded mock public service announcements (PSAs) for "addicted" devotees ahead of the season four launch later this summer.

Moyer is seen sympathetically telling fans, "True Blood addiction is no laughing matter," while Paquin adds in a separate film, "Help has finally arrived."

Kwanten jokes, "If you tell your girlfriend you don't mind that she'...

Trying to get True Blood executive producer Alan Ball and the cast of the HBO series to give away anything about the upcoming fourth season is not easy. Oh, but how they love to tease! During Saturday's PaleyFest panel, we heard all about fairies, demon babies, amnesia (poor Eric!) and why — brace yourselves — Sookie and Bill are doomed for the time being.

Bill's not getting back into Sookie's, er, good graces any time soon. It's going to take a long while for her to get past Eric's...

Vampires ruled at the 2010 Scream Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday night with "Twilight's" Kristen Stewart and the cast of TV drama "True Blood" winning big prizes at the city's Greek Theater.

Stewart picked up the Best Fantasy Actress honour at the event, held to applaud all things sci-fi, and "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" was named Best Fantasy Movie. It was also a big night for "True Blood," which picked up Best TV Show from number one fan Marilyn Manson.

The drama also claimed the Holy Sh--! Scene of the Year accolade for its much-publicized head-twisting sex encounter, while "True Bl...

Anna Paquin
Newlyweds Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin have moved in to their dream beach house after buying an ultra-modern three-floor pad in Los Angeles' trendy Venice.

The "True Blood" stars, who wed in August, spent $2.2 million on the contemporary four-bedroom house, which comes with its own elevator.

Paquin says, "It's incredibly nice here."

And the place isn't too far from the water, which is good news for Moyer, who used to live on a houseboat in London.

'True Blood' Recap - 'Evil is Going On'

September 13th, 2010 1:56pm EDT
True Blood
Finally, finally, finally Bill Compton shows his true colors on "True Blood." Maybe sometimes he can be lovey dovey and adorable with Sookie, but he can also be a snake in the grass who is desperately obsessed with his fairy-blood girlfriend. This finale was about a lot of secrets being revealed all at once, which makes it perfect for them to clean everything up and start anew next season. And what was up with Russell being even funnier during his last episode on screen? Apparently a charred face just ups the comedy value.

So, Sookie is saved by Eric and she immediately runs out to the sun...

Sandra Bullock Is Sexy On The Cover Of The New EW

Sandra Bullock EW
Sandra Bullock wasn't buying the hype. Speaking to EW last fall, weeks before the opening of a little heart-warmer of a movie called The Blind Side, the actress - who had reemerged earlier that year from a two-year hiatus with her biggest hit ever, the romantic comedy The Proposal - predicted that her newly reinvigorated career would soon cool down again. She brushed off The Proposal's success as a cosmic fluke: "I don't pump my fist in the air. I don't want anything karmically crashing down on me." She dismissed the idea that she might score an Oscar nomination for The Blind Side: "The stu...

Sofia Vergara has landed another prize from her night at the Emmy Awards on Sunday - for best teeth.

Austin, the author of "5 Steps to the Hollywood A-List Smile: How The Stars Get That Perfect Smile & How You Can Too," has named the "Modern Family" star at the top of her list of "radiant smiles", closely followed by "Glee's" Matthew Morrison, Eva LaRue and Stephen Moyer.

True Blood Recap - 'Fresh Blood'

August 31st, 2010 12:23pm EDT
True Blood
So in True Blood Eric's plan for Sookie and Russell comes to fruition, and it's a little anti-climatic but it works too. The little hints about Sookie's abilities and what her blood means as a fairy did come full circle here. And while it's hard to say if Eric sacrificing himself means he's forgiven for locking her in a dungeon and draining her, it does head in the right direction. Plus, it seems like the slow death of the Sookie/Bill relationship might finally come about. Yay! (Sorry, shipper fans).

Bill comes looking for Sookie and gets a faceful of silver pepper spray from Pam for the e...

Anna Paquin Talks Tongue & Bellybutton Piercings

August 24th, 2010 8:23am EDT
Anna Paquin
Anna Paquin recently revealed her history of piercings.

She explained, "I've had 10 piercings in my ear, and a bellybutton pierce (sic), and a tongue ring. My tongue, as it turns out, is not really appropriate for piercing, because the webbing is too close to the font, and the bottom barbell kept hitting against my teeth...and it gave me a lisp, which isn't great as an actress."

The bisexual actress recently tied the knot with her "True Blood" lover Stephen Moyer. The couple, who met and fell in love of the set of the vampire TV hit in 2007, tied the knot in front of a host of celebrity ...

There's something very depressing about watching one of the best characters on True Blood spend an entire episode preparing for his death. Now obviously Eric Northman is going nowhere, but there was a genuine sadness to seeing him make preparations anyway. Meanwhile everyone's going crazy as always and no one knows what Russell is going to do next. And humans hate vampires more than ever again. Good thing the weres are still hidden in this world, or they'd have to deal with this too. Oh! And Sookie Stackhouse is a fairy.

That's right, they start the episode with her revealing the fact she'...

True Blood Recap - 'Everything Is Broken'

August 18th, 2010 8:56am EDT
True_Blood
A very shocking fact: True Blood only has three more episodes left. Has this season flown by considerably fast, or is that just me? I was starting to wonder what the ending of this season was going to start resembling, and luckily by the end of the last episode, it all started to become clear. This deviates from the books considerably, but so does the rest of the show so not very surprising. In some ways, it's more interesting, because it speaks to a grander world-wide level of insanity that this insular show usually ignores. We haven't left Bon Temps or the southern area very often, but th...

"True Blood" Stars Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer reveal plenty of secrets about their hit HBO series in the latest issue of Rolling Stone.

Moyer puts in his perspective on his real-life relationship with Paquin: "We pretty much consider ourselves married now, even though we aren't yet."

And Paquin elaborates on what it's like to be bit by a vampire, comparing the feeling to one of the many piercings she's had in the past, including her tongue.

Stephen Moyer 'Never' Considered Marriage Before Anna Paquin

Stephen Moyer's proposal to Anna Paquin came as a shock to the star - because marriage was something he had always ruled out of his life.

The couple met on the set of True Blood in 2007 and the Brit actor proposed last summer. Despite being dad to two young children from previous relationships, Moyer had never considered marriage - but he knew Paquin was the one for him and was determined to make the blonde beauty his wife.

He tells the New Zealand Herald, "It felt ridiculous to call the person that you really are going to spend the rest of your life with your girlfriend. And so I felt ...

Anna Paquin and her fiance Stephen Moyer gifted their "True Blood" castmates with a porn film spoof of the hit vampire series called "Tru: A XXX Parody."

She explained, "Actually Steve and I were so amused by it that we got it for everyone on the cast and crew as a wrap gift."

Stephen recently said a graphic oral sex scene in the series had to be axed because cameras couldn't get close enough to the action.

He and real-life lover Anna Paquin were game to get the vampire/human sex session on film, but it technically wasn't possible.

True Blood is great in a lot of ways, but sometimes you wonder if it'll ever give the audience a chance to breath. Even when the cast moves back to the currently calm world of Bon Temps, it doesn't really let up for more than a few moments. Having an adrenaline rush for an entire hour is intense! Last week the episode ended with Sookie screaming her head off at Bill, and Anna Paquin has some major pipes on her, because every scream she does is just earsplitting. Eventually she shoos everyone out of the room and she and Bill break up for real this time. Of course everyone knows it won't actu...

True Blood Recap - 'Hitting the Ground'

True Blood
True Blood is really getting gruesome this season. This isn't to say that it has never been bloody and violent before, just think about Sam ripping out Maryann's heart, but it's been more consistent lately. They've replaced the lack of sex with violence. Last week's episode gave one more gigantic hurdle for Sookie and Bill to overcome, a look at fairy nymph land (WTF says everyone), and Tara's back to her badass take-no-prisoners way. Huzzah for that!

Lorena is draining Sookie and she asks the usual question "What are you?" to her, which gives the almost dead Bill enough time to put silver...

Sookie Stackhouse is one piece of work. No matter how much information she receives telling her that her vampire lover Bill is not good for her - even from his own mouth - she refuses to listen to it. It's a single minded obsessive love that can get grating, but it's difficult not to respect her for at least trying to be proactive about it. Last episode Bill led King Russell and his people right to Sookie, and now she's in his hands. Bill tries to save her and manages to stake one of Russell's guards, but he's no match for the ancient vampire and gets his butt handed to him. Russell tells L...

Wow. I feel like we constantly say 'wow' at True Blood, and it will never stop happening. Remember when finding Gran dead was the most insane thing we'd seen on the show so far, and then Rene was the killer and then Maryann turned everyone into zombies, and last week Bill turned Lorena's head completely around while they had sex? Yeah, this keeps getting crazier. One thing I'd personally like to see is a werewolf clan that isn't crazy, because we've seen plenty of the V-addicted sorts, and Alcide and his sister Janice seem pretty solid and interesting all on their own.

True Blood is known for its sex, blood, and violence, and it has occasionally dipped into blending the three, but never quite as directly as last week's episode. The two sex scenes were both strange, awkward, and in one case, bordering abusive/violent. The past few months have not been kind to most of the characters, so it's not that surprising one by one they seem to be losing their minds.

It starts off right where the last one left off, with a werewolf in Sookie's house and her firing a gun at it. Eric jumps in front of the bullet though, claiming they need information from the guy, and ...

Brooding TV vampire Stephen Moyer is so protective of the prosthetic fangs he wears on "True Blood" he entrusts them to an assistant, who washes them and files them away nightly.

The actor keeps a set on his person at all times and has another three pairs of identical fangs stored away on the set.

He tells Playboy magazine, "They're insured, and they get locked up every night but not before my lovely assistant readies a cup of Listermint (mouthwash) they go into. They get a little scrub, and then they get put back into a wallet."

True Blood, what did we ever do without you in our life? It's so good to have the show back, and they're wasting no time before blowing the audience's collective mind. Previously on the show, Bill was kidnapped, Sookie was freaking out, Tara was committing suicide because Eggs is dead, Jason was guilty because he killed Eggs, Eric was in trouble because of the illicit V selling thanks to Sophie-Anne, and Jessica had killed a man. Sucks to be basically everyone on this show! The last thing we saw was Bill taking on a wolfpack.

HBO has provided some incredible television for their hard working (and high paying) customers, but it's rare that a show catches fire the way True Blood has. This show achieved critical acclaim from the beginning, with people promising that Alan Ball has created more than just 'another vampire show,' and each season grew in popularity and viewership. Season three has premiered to high numbers, and with the momentum it has, it has a real chance of becoming the best rated show HBO has ever had. Does it deserve this? Hell yes. The marketing is brilliant but it does not lie; True Blood is back...

One of the most buzzed-about series since "The Sopranos" is premiering on June 13 to some hungry fans. Last summer, the show really began to boil, registering with both critics and audiences: At 4.3 million viewers an episode, it doubled its season 1 ratings. "It was a breakthrough season in terms of feeling like it became part of pop culture," says Michael Lombardo, HBO's head of programming.
