New casting calls as of this morning – of most interest the casting of Portia Bellefleur, Claude and Earl (Sookie’s grandfather and Gran’s husband – according to Bill’s geneaology project).
I’m literally running out the door right now, will be back with some thoughts later.
Thanks to Melodie at Bookies Love True Blood Facebook for the heads up.
