CASTING NEWS: Meet Hollis (SPOILERS)
True Blood is getting a new barkeeper in season 3. No, Sam Merlotte isn’t out of a job, but we will meet Hollis, owner of a werewolf bar in Shreveport. On the Red Carpet reports that Vincent Ward has landed the role, and although the casting call stated that he was a bouncer at the bar, Vincent reveals that Hollis is in fact the owner. The casting call gave a few more details about him, saying that he’s a nice guy who knows Alcide well (though he’s suspicious of Alcide’s guest, Sookie). When Alcide is getting the crap beaten out of him, Hollis jumps to his defense. He also delivers some bad news to Alcide about his fiancee, Debbie Pelt.
Vincent Ward (sometimes credited as Vincent M. Ward) has appeared on Everybody Hates Chris, The Starter Wife, and a variety of other shows.
