Dale Dickey is coming for Alcide.
The former My Name is Earl star - who has also appeared on such shows as Bones and Criminal Minds - has landed a key role on the fifth season of True Blood: she'll recur as Annie, the mother of Marcus.
Look for this werewolf to arrive in town, TV Line reports, and seek revenge against Alcide, the creature responsible for her son's death.
Annie is the second major, new role to be filled on True Blood over the past few weeks. Lucy Griffths will also come on board next summer as Nora, another progeny of Godric's. True Blood begins shooting the new season in just two weeks.
