Calling All Swedish Vikings: True Blood Casting for Eric's Father

at . Comments

Yesterday, True Blood announced the casting of one of its most important new roles:

Brit Morgan will portray Debbie Pelt, the psychotic ex of werewolf Alcide.

But HBO hit isn't done adding to its already-impressive cast. This week, the network sent out a casting notice for Eric's father. Named Ulfrick, he's a Swedish viking king in his late 40s or early 50s and his face is covered in battle scars.

Angry Eric

The show will flash back to 900 A.D. to depict scenes between Ulfrick and his son, most of which will take place in Swedish.

Any actors come to mind for this role?

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
