    I want to climb this man like a tree…he could make me forget my name. Delicious. Good move Alan Ball – definitely want to see (literally) more of him…

    Plus he seems to be a genuine nice guy who has his head on straight for now.

    I am so happy to hear that! However, they must toughen him up a little bit. He has been coming across as kind of a pansy.

    Frankly, I’m looking forward to when they off Sophie Ann. In the books, it’s the King of Nevada that kills her (if I remember right). I remember Joe saying something about someone getting killed off this season, someone shocking…maybe it’s her? Hadley perhaps? The Magister? Rev. Newlin (he reappears in Club Dead trying to kill Sookie in the were-bar)? The suspense is killing me!!! So long as it’s not any of the sexy leads, it’s all good :)

    I wish I was that sock!

    @ CuteChef- Sookie stakes Lorena in the books and Russell is not as evil.

    I vote for killing off Tara!!! The character is so annoying. If she rolls her eyes one more time….

    As much as I like True Blood, I will have to dust off the vcr. Mad Men is my first choice starting THIS WEEK !!!!!

    @ Cute Chef
    Sorry. Had a brain **** re: Lorena vs. Sophie Ann. Sophie is done in by Felipe DeCastros vamps after the summitt. :)

    This guy is a real-life action figure. He really doesn’t need brains right now, he’s got all he needs. just keep away from desperate idiots who want to use you to keep their names in the news.
    Maybe Ryan can compete looks-wise, and the guy who plays Franklin, acting-wise, but this guy is by far the best male on the show. I hope he also spends next season in bon temps. be a shame to go back to being the Askars show after flaunting this puppy.

    @JM That’s right, but still, Nevada took over Louisiana after her “death.” But from what I’ve read regarding the show, I don’t think it’s Lorena that dies. I know that Sookie stakes her in the book and puts her body in Russell’s pool. But I don’t see that happening. I’m pretty sure Lorena makes it through the season undead. Or at the very least, to the end of the season.
    I find it interesting though that they have it implied Eric realizes that Russell was the one that killed his father. Perhaps he’s the one that dies? Especially given what Eric is all about this season (revenge).

    I completely agree… sooo happy he is a regular. I liked ASkars but this guy puts him to shame completely. He may not be the best actor but he is better the then emotionless performances we see from ASkars. I would like to see Alcide in Bon Temps and have a meatier role…. and less clothing.

    @ Ashley – Joe has a BA in Drama (A 2000) from Carnegie-Mellon University. He’s not stupid nor is he a bad actor. Check your facts before you make disparaging remarks about someone.
