June 22nd, 2011 8:34am EDT
Anna Paquin & Stephen Moyer
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...

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'...

Alexander Skarsgard GQ
With his totally convincing American accent and eyes deep as a glacial fjord, Alexander Skarsgard has won over fans of HBO's True Blood (especially the female ones). Now the Swede is ready for the big screen with three major films opening soon-one of them being Straw Dogs, where he met his current flame, Kate Bosworth. Brett Martin catches up with Skarsgard while whale-watching off the coast of California and the actor opens up about filming love scenes with Anna Paquin, his time spent in the Swedish military, his relationship with his famous father, Stellan Skarsgard, and more.

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...

James Cameron Brands 'Battleship' Movie 'Ridiculous'

January 10th, 2011 8:27am EST
James Cameron
James Cameron has criticized Hollywood's love affair with franchises, citing the upcoming Battleship movie as an example of the "ridiculous" lengths producers will go to score a box office hit.

Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard and Rihanna are set to star in the big screen re-imagining of the popular board game, but Avatar director Cameron is horrified by the idea of turning a toy into a film.

The Terminator creator insists moviemakers should be allowed to pursue more original concepts, rather than relying on old stories and well-worn ideas.

He tells Germany's Spiegel Online, "We have a...

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.

A fiery red haired Rihanna went to Da Silvano's restaurant in NYC wearing one leather glove. The singer had on skintight gray leather-looking pants, Louboutin beige heels and an acid grey denim jacket with a leopard print scarf.

The pop star was recently named one of the worst dressed women in showbusiness. Outfits like this don't help. What do you think?

Rihanna is starring in the upcoming film "Battleship" opposite Tom Arnold, Brooklyn Decker and Alexander Skarsgard. She recently told Scotland's Daily Record, "Movies are definitely something I want to get into... Action would be good......

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.

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...

First Pics Of Rihanna In Hawaii On The Set Of 'Battleship'

Rihanna
Can you believe they're making a "Battleship" movie? Yes, based on the popular Milton-Bradley game of the same name.

And can you believe that Rihanna is starring? Well, if not, here's your proof: the "Umbrella" singer was seen borarding a boat and heading off to film the movie about a mile-and-a-half out to see off the shore of Hawaii. "Battleship" centers on a fleet of naval ships fighting aliens who invade Earth to take its natural resources for their own benefit. Hmm, haven't heard of anything like that before.

But regardless whether it sounds good, looks good, and in the most unlikely...

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).

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'

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...

Vampires Suck, Twilight, and True Blood all have a gorgeous lineup of vampires, werewolves and their human admirers. Which cast gets your blood pumping?

Vampires can't resist the smell of fresh human blood, just like Hollywood studios can't resist the temptation of easy money. And if there's one lesson Hollywood has learned from Twilight, it's that a compelling plot and character development don't matter as long as you have a smoking hot cast. Why bother with interesting dialogue when you can just have Robert Pattinson look into the camera and smolder? Who needs plot development wh...

Alexander Skarsgard's Vampire Based On A Lion

Alexander Skarsgard
Alexander Skarsgard had an unusual inspiration for his vampire character in True Blood - he bases his predatory prowl on a lion.

The 33 year old plays bloodsucking Eric Northman in the hit series and Skarsgard was eager to make the role as menacing as possible.

He tells Britain's Telegraph magazine, "I try to find that animalistic quality, and the element of danger. Inspiration came from a documentary about lions in Africa. I was fascinated by the male lion, the way he moved, the confidence."

"When he just sat down and looked straight at the cameraman, he did absolutely nothing, but f...

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 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...

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.

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...

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 ...
