    True Blood is overrated and so are its actors. I appreciate the other picture more.

    I like the shot with If I can Dream, the looks was in contrast with the pic. I mean, Their eyes look unemotional despite the hotness of the pic. Besides the True Blood pic looks so gay.

    I’ve never seen the Dream show but it looks more like they might start getting it on then the true blood one, not that is necessarily the goal of ether picture.

    Wow, PETA isn’t even trying anymore. Usually they wait more than a week before ripping off someone else’s ideas.

    Ceelo Says:

    Anna Paquin spoils the True Blood pic, and the Justin Gaston fella looks like Billy Ray Cyrus, which isn’t good, so I’ll say it’s a tie.

    True Blood for sure. Love all the blood splattered everywhere, its way more artistic, edgy and a bit quirky and well as hot. The other pic isn’t bad or anything but it just looks like 3 people trying to look sexy.

    @burnt bacon: Must have been really hard for PETA to rip off True Blood all the way back in July. Maybe the organization has some sort of time machine allowing them to flash forward to see the True Blood promo cover, then go back a month to JULY to take their shot. Magic, I tell you. Maybe they also used a blinding ray on dumbasses who can’t even freaking see the JULY caption in this entry.

    The True Blood one of course! The fake blood splattered everywhere might be a little corny but it’s all about the hot people in it…doesn’t Stephen’s butt look yummy here?

    @burnt bacon:
    why do people insist on commenting without reading the article first?
    It clearly says, the PETA ad was from July 2010, the RS pic from August 2010, how’s ripping whom?

    (Just wish True Blood’s Stephen Moyer were replaced with Alcide because Stephen is a little too old and he’s really starting to look like his real age.)

    I seriously hate Tru Blood, however I must admit that their picture is a hundred times hotter than the one from If I can dream.

    Anna is so lucky to be nekkid rubbing up against Alex. Just look at her right breast – it’s tightly against his ribcage. And she’s in very close proximity to his delicious man meat! Mmmm mmmm mmmmm ohhhhh yesssss

    Boston Girl Says:

    Vampire Bill (Stephen Moyer) doesn’t fit in at all. All these actors – both males and females – are young and hot. Bill looks like he’s desperately holding on to whatever remains he has left of his youth.

    Keep dying those gray sideburns Bill, but they won’t turn the clock back! LOL

    True Blood Copied PETA Says:

    @rol: I know, right?! PETA Ad was from July 2010. TB Ad was from Aug 2010. It seems TB copied PETA, not the other way around! I love TB but PETA is such as amazing non-profit, so their ad is actually a lot more important than a TV show ad.

    Crystal Says:

    @Sasha: How can True Blood clean up after Twilight when it’s way more popular than True Blood and the Sookie Stackhouse books will ever be.

    I can’t stand Twilight, I think it’s badly written and the movies badly acted but it doesn’t need True Blood to clean up after them. It’s the reason why Vampires are currently a hot trend right now.

    Carla Nelson Says:

    You gotta remember that the twighlight stars don’t have to get nude or naked they are big time. The TB cast is pulling out all stumps but according to the polls I’m sorry AS came in at number forty six. After seeing Ian Solamander I have to give it ti this young man he got the looks. Now he is sexy he has the looks that go with the word. Yes they are overated and I can see that they are trying to hard to compete with these younger audience. You got it going on when you don’t have to take a shred of clothing off to get an audience. AS has lost his appeal long time ago with me and Bill two. I don’t watch TB for the nudeness I can take it or leave but I have seen better bodies than these two men put together. To tell you the truth Alcide whips rings around this two anyday.
