Kevin Alejandro: Nelsan Ellis' True Blood Love!

Southland‘s Kevin Alejandro will be joining the cast of True Blood, THR reports.

The 33-year-old actor will play Jesus, an orderly who takes care of Lafayette’s mother (played by former Desperate Housewives star Alfre Woodard) and gets romantically involved with Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis). Fang-tastic!!!

Kevin will still be a regular on Southland; the first 13 episodes of the show are ready to air on TNT beginning January 12, so he has time off to shoot True Blood!

    OMG! Maybe I’ll finally get around to putting aside my dislike of Anna Paquin in order to watch for this hunky man. LOVE Kevin Alejandro.

    He is a cutie. Look forward to seeing him on True Blood!

    True Blood is awesome and towards the end of Season 2 Anna Paquin’s character got soo very interesting, so much mystery around her character. Though i love True Blood every news bit im getting for Season 3 involves gay or bisexual love interests for characters. Seems a bit much
