This handsome TV vampire recently gave the Hollywood Bowl his best Razzle Dazzle appearing as Billy Flynn in a production of Chicago, and it must have been pretty great because he was just offered another musically demanding role!
True Blood star Stephen Moyer has been cast in NBC’s live holiday production of The Sound of Music!
Bill Stephen will portray WWI hero and single father, Captain Georg Von Trapp, who is living in Austria right before World War II.
He falls for Maria (Carrie Underwood), a glorified nanny who he hires to take care of his children!
The production is scheduled to air Dec. 5th and will be based on the original 1959 Broadway production of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical!
Can't wait to see this lovely show!
We vow to Clim Ev'ry Mountain before December! LOLz!

Why can't Alexander Skarsgård just be naked ALL the time!
The True Blood hottie unfortunately had to keep his clothes on for his lunch date with Swedish actress Alicia Vikander.
The two were spotted outside Stockholm's Nytorget 6 restaurant after chowing down on some home-country cuisine.
These two Scandinavians have been buddy-buddy for years, but sources now say Alexander is officially off the market because he and Alicia are now dating!
We wanted you all to ourselves, Alex! We even bought Rosetta Stone - Swedish to try to impress you!
At least we got ourselves a glimpse of his gherkin and Swedish meatballs! And we thank you for that, Alex!!!
Ch-ch-check out more pics below of Skarsgård looking all sorts of seksi, leaning up against a pick up truck and flirting with Alicia!

True Blood mortal-cum-vampire Rutina Wesley, who plays the tumultuous Tara, has filed for divorce from her husband, Jacob Fishel. They have been married eight years. Jacob is also an actor, with a resume of guest spots on network shows.
The formal reason for the split is irreconcilable differences. Always so vague!
The couple met as classmates at Julliard School in New York, but clearly love isn't something you learn from a textbook!
Our thoughts and support go out to them both and their families at this difficult time.
Check out photos of the actress at this Summer's red carpet premiere of the series (below).

Alexander Skarsgård showed us everything on Sunday's True Blood- but did it cost Eric everything?
First things first- how does one get Alexander Skarsgård naked? Is it hard? Er, difficult, we mean! Showrunner Brian Buckner has revealed the secret negotiations! He says:
"Alex Skarsgard was the coolest camper in the world. There’s no conversation with him. He’s Swedish. They’re naked all the time. As a matter of fact, when I saw what we had on camera, I sent him an email that said, 'We’re going to lock picture. Are you OK with this?' He said, 'No problemo.' That was the conversation. It couldn’t have been easier."
Wow! If it was that easy, why not have him naked sunbathe all the time from the start? Oh right! Because of that whole sunlight kills vampires thing.
Eric's naked snow day does seem pretty ill-advised in retrospect. But is it really the end for our precious ASkars? Brian says:
We're totes going to get spoiled watching this scene over and over again!
Last night's epic True Blood gave us the greatest moment that's ever been on TV! Scratch that- not TV, HBO.
Alexander Skarsgård has gotten naked on the show before, but this time, he went fully full frontal! No cutaways, no sheets or other vamps in the way- just Eric completely exposed in the bright sunlight!
Wait, bright sunlight??
For Realz SPOILER (and nudity) ALERT now:
No one in Bon Temps is safe!!!
The upcoming True Blood Season 6 finale is so close, we can TASTE it!
But this Sunday's episode has one vamp VERY nervous about how fans will react to all the action!
Rob Kazinsky, who plays the faerie/vampire Warlow admitted he was super anxious about what's about to go down on the show! Rob explained:
There’s no telling where an episode of True Blood will take you, but one thing’s for sure: the battle is on, and as usual, it’s headed straight for Bon Temps!
As Sookie and the gang try to navigate their latest life-threatening dramz, Jessica seems to think it’s all up to Billith to set things straight! But CAN he really?! Or is salvation in the hands of Jason and Andy??
What's more, where has Eric disappeared off to?!
Ch-ch-check out the promo for this Sunday’s episode…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
