Michael Steger Goes Gay For True Blood!

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??

I am so sad that 90210 only have like 2 episodes left before the season will end.

# 2

Can’t wait for the new series. Yay to a gay couple. And no, he is not gay in real life.

# 3

Woo hoo! Finally True Blood is coming back. This should be interesting to see him as a gay vampire.

# 4

Oh, good for him for taking up the challenge.

# 5

zomlord, he is 29 and playing 17 years old on 90210?? that’s super pushing it.

@mailey:
The guy who play Clark Kent in Smallville is over 30 and he is playing a teenager.

I don’t watch the show but I’mma tune in for this

How does he look like Theo?

@wraith: I hate 90210, it’s one of the most pointless shallow series on TV.

http://eachurl.com/xq Theo Alexander is pretty hot

@KC:
What show(s) do you watch then?

@III: Talbot and Eric need to make out.

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

@Althea:

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?

He’s a cutie but his hairstyle is silly, hopefully they give him a diff. cut for the show lol

@Aminta:
There are a lot 20 something playing teengers these day so I find it is normal for me.

If you’ve read the books you know what happens!!!!! So excited to see how they’ll film and act it out :) :) :)

Pretty sure most of the dudes on True Blood are gay except maybe Stephen M lol

@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

@Ru: why are you turning this into an alex thread?? this post has nothing to do with him

I stopped watching 90210 after the first week but I like Michael, he seems so lovely.

claudine! I cant wait!!

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!
