The spoiler drought may be OVER, woohoo! First solid piece of news for season 6 is a bit of casting information, courtesy of TVLine.
Look below the Read More for details.
True Blood has made its first major Season 6 hire, and it’s pretty bloody fangtastic. Acting vet Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner) is joining the HBO smash as a series regular, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Hauer will play Macklyn, a mysterious and sinister figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason.
Hauer is well known for his portrayal of Blade Runner‘s Roy Batty, a renegade robot trying to evade capture in Ridley Scott’s classic sci-fi film. But the Dutch actor has a varied resume that includes parts in movies like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Batman Begins and Sin City and guest roles in TV’s Smallville and Alias. In 1988, he won a Golden Globe for his work in the TV movie Escape From Sobibor.
True Blood‘s sixth season is slated to premiere in June.
My thoughts: Of course, my first thought was that Hauer might be Warlow, but barring that, I’d say he may be a fae relative of some kind. Oooh, and late thought! The name on the contract was “M. Warlow.” Could that Macklyn Warlow? And another total aside: check out pictures of young Rutger Hauer, who bears a strong resemblance (IMO) to ASkars : http://www.rutgerhauer.org/
