According to the Hollywood Reporter, Anna Paquin has signed on to star in the upcoming HBO drama, True Blood
. She will join Ryan Kwanten and Sam Trammell in the cast.
The show, from writer/director Alan Ball, takes place in a world in which vampires can buy Japanese-made synthetic blood. Their integration into a small Louisiana town causes quite a stir, and a love story ensues between a vampire and Sookie Stackhouse (Paquin), an innocent waitress who can read people's minds.
Kwanten will play the waitress' brother. Trammell will play the owner of the restaurant where she works.
KJ's Take: Oh come on, everyone knows that if this really happened, the blood would be made in China or Taiwan ...
As for the show, sounds a bit wacky, even for HBO. Anna Paquin sure has grown up fast, hasn’t she?
