Arliss Howard is set to lay down the law on True Blood.

According to TV Line, the long-time actor (Rubicon, Medium, Moneyball) will come on board the HBO smash as a series regular next summer, portraying Creighton Burrell, the Governor of Louisiana.

The character will be a sensitive single father who has a strong dislike for vampires… because his wife ran off with one!
