True Blood: Casting for Politican, Love Interest for Sookie

by at . Comments

With Rutger Hauer already on board, fans can look forward to three more new character moving to Bon Temps for True Blood Season 6.

Sookie and Jason Stackhouse

HBO has sent out casting notices for the following roles:

  • BEN will be a series regular and a possible new love interest for Sookie. He's described as a "low-key Southern guy" with a "super dark" that may cause major problems for the show's heroine.
  • THE GOVERNOR OF TEXAS will be a war-monger in the mold of Rick Perry.
  • His DAUGHTER will also recur and will prove herself to be tougher than initially believed.

True Blood returns next summer. Let the casting suggestions fly, TV Fanatics!

UPDATE: Rob Kazinsky has signed on as Ben.

I'm with @Roman. Sookie doesn't need a love interest and with only 10 episodes next season, I wish they'd focus more on other things like Billith and Warlow.

I don't why we need another love interest for Sookie. I don't what to make of these casting notices, because a lot of times they are for characters that are only on one episode or even one scene, yet they make them sound like they are important.
