Casting Call – added 02.29.12
How’s this for a mid-week pick me up: the casting call for True Blood episode 5.07! The episode is currently not titled but the casting call gives us some clues about what’s happening.
It seems a wedding is in the works, but will it go off as planned? The night before the wedding, we meet the bride-to-be at a karaoke party where she sings “You Light Up My Life” to her groom, until she’s interrupted. We also meet the mother of the groom who recognizes an uninvited guest. Possibly part of this group is a security guard in charge of protection who announces an unexpected visitor, and later snaps into almost-action, awaiting orders. Er…”almost-action”? I’m not feeling very secure.
We’ll also meet the Reverend Skinner performing a marriage ceremony…on video. So not associated with the wedding mentioned above?
We’re meeting up with that trashy, low-rent anti-vampire group again, the one with Joe Bob from episode 5.06. This time we meet Tyrese, a 20-something beer-drinking, pizza-loving African-American man who may be a recurring character.
Speaking of recurring, get ready to meet Sweetie. She’s a 30ish large woman who’s having a noontime romance with an older married man and will appear in an undetermined number of episodes.
The show is also casting a man or woman in their late 20s to early 30s to play a Black Ops Vampire. This character will be involved in a mission to capture a prisoner. Very mysterious! Who is the vamp working for? Who is the prisoner he or she is tasked with capturing?
