And this is one of the best reasons!
In this hilarious clip from the film, Franco's character Dave Skylark is interviewing rapper Eminem.
During the interview, Eminem casually comes out
Just when we start to worry about True Blood (showrunners keep leaving) they go and do something inspired like this — they hired two VERY sexy people for their cast!
Do you remember Karolina Wydra? She was on House (she played Dominika the green card wife), so she knows the TV ropes already and can hit the ground running as Violet:
"a strong, sexy, possibly dangerous vampire on par with the Eric Northmans and Bill Comptons of the world."
A strong, badass chick? We're in!
On the flip side, we've got Luke Grimes joining the cast — he'll be playing a '70's vampire that's smart, spiritual and emotionally deeper! The source even calls him the "Jim Morrison of vampires," which is INCREDZ! LOLz!
With all these new charactes AND the new showrunner, we're a little nervous. But then again, the past work of both Karolina and Luke (he was on Boys & Girls) more than proves that they're capable of amazing things!
We're gonna have some bon temps in Bon Temps! Ha!
