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.

True Blood Quotes

Everyone I love leaves, everything I touch dies, so forgive me if I don't share your faith in my lord.


I don't know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can rip your throat out if I need to. And also know that I am not a hooker. That was a long, long time ago
