TV Line have just announced a rather strange casting call for True Blood Season 7.
Question: Will we meet any new villains during True Blood‘s final season? —Tom
Ausiello: Funny you should ask. Last week, the show put out a casting call for the cryptic-sounding menace, “The Figure.” He’s described as “scary, hulking, ugly, mean and crafty… like Leatherface or Jason Voorhees, but this guy talks.” Curiously, this Figure dude will appear in the season premiere — an episode that (presumably) finished shooting more than two months ago.
Ok, so we have “The Figure”, who is required to play a role in the season premiere. Are they playing catch-up for actors that were late back on set? Is this another Warlow who will arrive in bon Temps in mysterious circumstances? Will we just see him in a smokey haze to build up the anticipation before he becomes a completely lame bad guy? Is he just a one episode wonder? Or are they just trying to make my head explode?
I have no freaking clue what is happening this season. A few days ago on True Blood’s Wikipedia page, Season 7 was showing as having a powerful new vampire called Matticus who tries to take over and Sookie and the gang have to stop him. Now that information has disappeared! It was quite possibly horsesh*t! Someone somewhere is trying to drive me completely insane!
Before I go and lie down in a darkened room to mull over the new casting call, I can also report that actress Christian Pitre joined the cast last week as “Victoria” (most probably in episode 4), which she describes as a “small role”, so no need to worry that she may be some form of vampire queen!
