Michael Steger Goes Gay For True Blood!

90210 star Michael Steger will play Tony, a gay prostitute, on one episode of the upcoming season of True Blood.

According to EW, the 29-year-old actor will get “picked up by King of Mississippi Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare) because of his resemblance to his current steady, Talbot (Theo Alexander).” (Russell and Talbot are True Blood‘s first gay vampire couple.)

British actress Lara Pulver has also been tapped to play Claudine, the fairy godmother to Anna Paquin’s character Sookie.

True Blood premieres on Sunday (June 13) @ 9PM ET/PT on HBO! Excited??

    90210 is shallow, bland. You see things coming from a mile away. Not witty, smart or realistic… just boring.

    Uhm, no, Clark Kent is supposed to be 25 at this point. And Welling hasn’t aged so he’s ok, but a 29 year old playing a teenager?

    @Joshua: Ha ha. Well, the ones who play a gay character (except for this guy who’s straight) are out. And Alexander Skarsgård has said many times he’s not Bi or straight, he’s still looking for the perfect woman to spend the rest of his life with

    One would think that they would have teenagers playing teenagers but the cast of the original 90210 were older than their characters were & that was in the ’80′s!
    It’s the same as gay characters in movies & TV always being played by straight actors – for example: Ian Ogilvy, Death Becomes her; Kevin Kline, In & Out (can’t remember more current examples). The same applies to gay actors playing straights – Neil Patrick Harris BEFORE he came out.
    That’s apparently how Hollywood works.

    Looks wise he is cute I do not have a clue who he is though and do not know anything about his personality. I do not watch the new 90210, I don’t really watch the WB that much at all now that I think about!
