Jack Davenport Takes Center Stage

January 30th, 2012 2:20pm EST
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 ...

True Blood star Stephen Moyer recently jetted to Las Vegas - just to buy his new wife Anna Paquin a gift.

Moyer and actress Paquin tied the knot last August but the actor admits although most would guess the wedded bliss has worn off, he's still a romantic.

And to prove his continued affection for his wife, Moyer flew to Sin City just to pick up a priceless piece of memorabilia, which he knew Paquin would love.

During an appearance on Live With Regis and Kelly on Tuesday, he said, "I am fairly romantic... I flew to Vegas to buy something for Anna recently, which was pretty cool. I went, ...

Stephen Moyer Says The 'U.K. Riots Are Quite Interesting'

August 12th, 2011 4:22pm EDT
STEPHEN MOYER
True Blood star Stephen Moyer has risked the wrath of his fellow Brits by confessing he has enjoyed watching news coverage of the "exciting" riots, which have caused chaos across the U.K.

The civil unrest began in London last week and soon spread across the country as thugs attacked city centers, smashing windows, looting shops and setting buildings on fire.

A host of British celebrities, including singer Annie Lennox and comedian Russell Brand, have spoken out to condemn the violence which has caused so much destruction, but Los Angeles-based Moyer, who grew up in Essex, south east Eng...

Anna Paquin Dishes About Her On-Screen Love Scenes With Her Husband

True Blood
Anna Paquin recently opened up about filming love scenes with husband and "True Blood" co-star Stephen Moyer.

She explained, "Maybe it should be weird, simulating sex with your husband in front of people, but it's really not. When it's a love scene with someone you actually love, there's no feeling like, 'Can I touch him here, can I touch him there?'

"You know what your boundaries are - or what they aren't, I suppose."

Anticipation has been building for the new season of "True Blood," and all the stars came out for the premiere in Hollywood yesterday. Stephen Moyer looked dapper in gray while his wife Anna Paquin was sexy in a black mini dress emebellished with purple sequins.

Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard, who plays vampire Eric Northman, recently talked about filming love scenes with Paquin, who plays Sookie Stackhouse.

He told GQ magazine, "It's really clear to Steve [Moyer] and to everybody else what the deal is - which is that Anna is like a sister to me... Those love scenes take quite a bit of...

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."

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...

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'

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 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

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 Recap - 'Night On The Sun'

True Blood Recap
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'

August 4th, 2010 2:30pm EDT
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. Let's not get a stere...

'True Blood' Recap - 'It Hurts Me Too'

June 29th, 2010 9:26pm EDT
True Blood
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."

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

He explains, "My character would have had his head between Anna's character's legs. It was scrapped because of technical difficulty getting the shot with the number of camera set ups they had planned - as opposed to because it was too graphic."
