True Blood season 3 just gained another waitress: Ausiello scoops that Lauren Bowles has been cast in the recurring role of Holly Cleary. This single mom takes a job as a waitress at Merlotte’s where she freaks out Arlene with her “oddly prescient observations”. She will arrive midway through season 3 and is likely to return in season 4.

Bowles has been a guest star on a lot of shows, including opposite her half-sister Julia Louis-Dreyfus on Seinfeld and The New Adventures of Old Christine, on a favorite of ours, Veronica Mars, and more recently, on Lie To Me which also had Michael Raymond-James as a guest this season.

    Nice choice, can I also say without sounding mean that I like how Alan Ball picks some women who are attractive but not overly gorgeous. It makes a real balance in the show. I mean like in soap operas how every single character is strangely good looking, it takes away from being in touch with reality. This woman, looks normal. Can’t say I am aware of her acting ability but we’ll see!!
