Marshall Allman and True Blood Scoop

By  |  5 Comments

Last weekend at the ATX Television Festival, Marshall Allman (Tommy) did a hilarious Q&A after a screening of the Season 4 finale of True Blood. He has quite a few things to share including penis jokes. See the highlights below.

Marshall Allman was "Tommy Mickens"in True Blood - Season 4

  • Tommy will not return in Season 5- For those of us hoping Tommy would make an appearance
    in season 5, I’m sad to say Marshall Allman confirmed he will not be back.
  • More Sookie Please- Marshall said one character he wishes Tommy had more scenes with was
    Sookie. He thinks they would have gotten along if they really got to know one another.
  • Table reads are fun- Marshall talked about how fun the table reads are for the cast of True
    Blood and how exciting it was for them to read a new episode each week. The highlight
    was when a cast member couldn’t make it to the table read, another cast member would
    imitate that character. What was everyone’s favorite thing to imitate? Bill’s pronunciation
    of “Sookehhhh.”
  • Penises are scene stealers- Marshall said he was glad he never worked with Alex (Eric) during
    nude scenes because the scoop is he really doesn’t wear anything at all. He is completely nude!
    He said, “Penises can steal a show like small children and dogs!” It was hilarious!

I can say that Marshall Allman will be missed in Season 5, but don’t worry you can catch him in the upcoming films Blue Like Jazz and Jayne Mansfield’s Car. You can also follow him on Twitter @marshallallman.

True Blood airs on Sundays at 9pm EST on HBO.

I'm a social butterfly who loves True Blood! I am a correspondent for I love Vampires and supernatural shows. In my head Lafayette is my best friend and Alcide is my boyfriend. Ha! #TrueToTheEnd #Truebie

    I loved Tommy Mickens and Marshall Allman’s portrayal of him.

    It’s too bad he won’t come back as a ghost for Lafayette to chat with, but he and Sam really had closure in the pool table/death scene.

    I hope to see more of Sam dealing with how his relationship went with Tommy in the future, but I think he’ll be too busy trying to stay alive.

      Indeed he will, Dee, poor guy. I agree with you about Sam and Tommy’s closure. Sam was also able to say goodbye at the funeral. Sam may have regrets about Tommy, but he can’t change anything and as you said, he’ll be rather busy.

      I was hoping Tommy would come back as a ghost or in a flashback scene. I am glad that Tommy & Sam had the closure that they did.

      Yeah, that didn’t surprise me much. Alex has frequently talked about how comfortable he is in the nude mostly due to his Swedish upbringing. Which begs the question, do all Swedes walk around naked all the time, and if so, why am I not living there?
