Next to Alexander Skarsgard, Michael McMillian is one of my favorites among the True Blood cast thanks to his side line work of writing the True Blood comics. E.J. Scott, the boyfriend of Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica on True Blood) conducted an interview with McMillz, talking about his childhood, going to school at the Interlochen fine arts boarding school in Michigan (not too far from where I grew up), mental illness and depression, what he thinks about former goworker Amanda Bynes, his friendship with Alexander Skarsgard, and his plans for future comics.

Variety is reporting that Samuel L. Jackson is in talks to play a role in the “Tarzan” reboot that Alexander Skarsgard is slated to star in. Jackson had previously been considered for a role in the movie, but scheduling conflicts had made it difficult for him to participate.
