‘True Blood’ Season 4 to Reveal History Between Bill and Nan via aceshowbiz.com

Another story from Bill’s past will be uncovered in “True Blood” season 4. Recently, Jessica Tuck said that her character, Nan, shares a history with the male vampire. “All I can say is that Nan and Bill have a history,” she teased, but refused to share more than that. “Details of that history will be revealed in Season 4.”

InSee larger image the upcoming season, Nan who is a spokeswoman for American Vampire League is assigning Bill and Eric to win back the human public after Russell’s on-air meltdown. To True Blood’s Nest, Jessica revealed her character has a bigger plan than just to maintaining the peace between humans and vampires.

“It would be foolish to think that her efforts were just about making humans and vamps one big happy family,” the series’ new regular said. “There is an agenda behind her agenda but that is not for me to reveal right now. Stay tuned.”

I don’t really care for Nan…but then again I don’t care for Bill…so maybe there is a future there…along with the past??

Alexander Skarsgard bullied for wearing cowboy boots via monstersandcritics.com

Hollywood hunk Alexander Skarsgard has revealed he was once bullied for wearing cowboy boots to school.

The 34-year-old True Blood actor has opened up about his days as a young Swedish boy visiting Texas with his father Stellan.

He told Arcade Fire’s Win Butler: ‘I spent two months in Fredericksburg, Texas, when I was eight, while my father shot a movie, and I loved it. I just embraced the whole cowboy culture. I got myself a pair of awesome boots and a cowboy hat. Then I got back to Sweden in September to go back to school, and I was so proud of my cowboy boots.

‘I told my mum and my dad, ‘I’m going to wear these bad boys to school today, and all the kids are going to love me. I’m going to be the coolest kid in school.’ Then I showed up and everyone was like, ‘Dude, why are you wearing ladies’ boots?’ They didn’t really work in Sweden. I wore them that one day, and then I ran home and cried and never wore those boots again.’

Too funny…and I just love his candor about the whole thing….you don’t get that with a lot of celebs!!

Sam Trammell on How to Act Normal ‘In a World of Sheer Madness’ via thewrap.com

If the Emmy gods are willing, this could be the year Trammell scores his first Emmy nod for his supporting dramatic work on “True Blood,” especially after a third season that found him exploring his past and getting in touch with his inner rage. We talked with him about finding a new family in season 4, how to stay grounded when you’re surrounded by supernatural characters, and, perhaps hardest of all, how to shoot a convincing sex scene.

Sam is kind of an audience surrogate through all the vampires and other craziness on “True Blood.”
He’s a sensible person. He’s a responsible person in a world of a lot of irresponsibility and he’s a fairly grounded person in a world of sheer madness.

You get involved this season with a woman named Luna (Janina Gavankar of “The Gates” and “The L Word”). What can you say about that?
I had the family kind of dynamic happen last season with my brother and my two biological parents, and by the end had cut them offf. And this season I have a different kind of family that I’m going toward.

She’s a shapeshifter, so I can really connect with her, and she’s also very mysterious, and I think Sam is drawn to that. She’s kind of like Sam in a lot of ways. He was and still is to a certain extent a mysterious character in town. … I don’t think anybody knows about him killing two people.

In addition to her I meet these other shapeshifters and there’s a real community of shapeshifters. This year we explore the mythology of shapeshifting.

Will we see Sam next season deal with his anger issues?
We saw him go off the edge little bit when he went on that drinking binge and almost killed that guy. But he was pushed pretty hard. It certainly was a breaking point when he beat that guy up last year. A lot of his anger issues came rolling back to the forefront. He’s going to have to do a little bit of work on himself this coming year in terms of controlling his emotions.

You’ve played very grounded human roles. Which is harder, those roles or the fantastical world of “True Blood”?
In a way I don’t have to make the choice.
