Title and Casting Call – added 03.30.11

Episode 4.08 is called “Spellbound” and was written by Alan Ball, so it should be a meaty one. Filming begins April 11 in Los Angeles.

For this episode, they’re casting Virgil, a “harshly handsome” 35-year-old Caucasian with “a cold and ruthless streak”. We’ll see him in a flashback to the 1930s, but as part of whose storyline?

Bill continues to be in an position of authority when he charms a female reporter from the local TV news. She’s talking with that troublemaker Maxine Fortenberry when Bill shows up and interrupts. The reporter is more than willing to give Bill a public forum while, we assume, Maxine fumes in the background.

Also being cast is Rita, simply described as an attractive maternal woman in her 40s. One of Maxine’s friends?

Official Synopsis Added 7/8/11: As Bill and Marnie brace for a dangerous midnight face-off, Sookie and Eric pledge their allegiance to the King. Jason is torn between friendship and passion, and Jessica is spurned from two homes. Lafayette becomes the pawn of a tormented spirit; Tommy takes a walk in someone else’s shoes; Sam contends with yet another adversary in Marcus, Luna’s ex and the leader of Alcide’s new pack. Premieres August 14.
