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??

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

  • Althea

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

  • wraith

    Oh, good for him for taking up the challenge.

  • mailey

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

  • KC

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

  • III Theo Alexander is pretty hot

  • wraith

    What show(s) do you watch then?

  • roxin

    @III: Talbot and Eric need to make out.

  • klein

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

  • Aminta


    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?

  • sara

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

  • Althea

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

  • Joshua

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

  • Ru

    @Joshua: Ha ha. Well, the ones who play a gay character (except for this guy who’s straight) are out. And Alexander SkarsgĂ„rd 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

  • fangirls

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

  • Emma

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

  • christyjolie

    claudine! I cant wait!!

  • rossy40

    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.

  • Realistic

    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!

  • Allie

    The only place I’ve ever seen this guy is on the one episode of 90210 I was able to make it through, and that one episode of Criminal Minds where he played a terrorist. I hope he does the role justice…

  • vertika gupta

    It was not the 80s. The original 90210 didnt debut until 1990.
