Casting Call – added 03.17.12

We’ve just received the casting call for True Blood episode 5.08, which will be directed by star Stephen Moyer! The episode, titled “Somebody That I Used To Know”, marks Steve’s directorial debut on True Blood. It was written by Mark Hudis and begins filming in L.A. on April 4.

Not only is Steve directing this episode, but it appears we’re getting a look at Bill’s history: the show is casting Sarah Compton-Harris, an elderly woman seen in flashback to 1931. She’s in her 70s-80s, and ravaged by cancer. Does Bill find his daughter at death’s door and offer her an alternative?

The werewolf storyline continues to heat up as the Shreveport pack faces a leadership change. At a meeting, we’ll meet Ryder, a large male werewolf who addresses the group, and a lady packmember with a suggestion of her own. Could the reason for the meeting be in the casting of Sean? He’s a track star at a university who is forced to outrun a wolf pack. That is one of the scariest sentences I have ever written.

A young woman in her 20s is being cast as the victim of a vampire who begs for her life as she’s being fed on. If you’ll recall, this is the third or fourth episode to include a casting call for a vampire victim. Do we have a rogue vampire on the loose? Is it Russell? Pam? Jessica? TARA????

Also intriguing is that the show is looking for a double for Sam Trammell. I wonder what happened to his former double? Also, if you’re single and you look like Sam Trammell, feel free to email me. ;)
