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.

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.
