Kevin Alejandro to Play Jesus on True Blood

by at . Comments

Kevin Alejandro has joined the ever-growing cast of True Blood.

The actor, who is still listed as a regular on Southland, will appear in almost every episode of the show's third season. He'll play Jesus, an orderly that takes care of Alfre Woodard's Ruby Jean Reynolds, while becoming involved with her son, Lafayette.

As that character's rumored boyfriend? It certainly sounds like it.

Southland recently moved from NBC to TNT. The cable network will all 13 completed episodes of the cop drama, starting January 12, before making a decision on its second season. Therefore, Alejandro can remain attached to both projects in the meantime.

The actor has also guest-starred on Weeds, Melrose Place and Ugly Betty.

He joins such other new True Blood additions as Denis O'Hare, Marshall Allman, Theo Alexander, Grant Bowler, Joe Manganiello and Lindsay Pulsipher on season three, scheuled to air this summer.
