Casting Call – added 06.01.12

Just as we’re gearing up for the premiere of True Blood season 5, the cast and crew are getting ready to film the final episode of the season. Thanks to a spoilery birdie, we have the title and a (fairly minor) casting call for True Blood episode 5.12, the season finale.

The episode is titled “Save Yourself” and the show is casting yet another vampire Authority guard. He’s mid-20s to mid-30s and described as imposing and powerful, which, I mean, you don’t want a underwhelming weakling guarding your prisoners, so that doesn’t tell us much.
