Joe Manganiello Talks True Blood's Wacky Sex Scenes

Originally posted 07/16/2012 08:30AM

The only thing tighter than their lips are their abs, but the cast of True Blood let a few spoilers slip Saturday during a panel at Comic-Con – and it looks like Bon Temps is in store for a particularly steamy summer.

"I sexually eviscerate another cast member in one of the episodes coming up," werewolf hunk Joe Manganiello revealed, after showing off his body-rolling skills to the packed room of thousands of fans.

But the lucky lady in question may not be Anna Paquin's Sookie Stackhouse, who got hot and heavy with Manganiello's Alcide Herveaux earlier this season.

Anna Paquin: Sex Scenes with Alexander Skarsgard Are 'Completely Comfortable'

Originally posted 06/28/2012 08:00AM

Some actors admit to awkward moments filming love scenes.

Anna Paquin is not one of them.

Although her husband and father of her baby-on-the-way, Stephen Moyer, 42, costars with her on True Blood, the actress has no qualms about filming sex scenes with fellow cast mate Alexander Skarsgard.

"We feel completely comfortable together," Paquin, 29, tells Redbook in its August issue hitting newsstands July 10. "Steve and Alex are buddies. It's nothing like, 'Oh, hi, nice to meet you. Now take off your clothes and go into the fog.' Everyone is respectful of each other's boundaries ... They're all very gentlemanly about it."

New Vampire Tara Goes Wild on True Blood

Originally posted 06/15/2012 06:40PM



On True Blood, Tara has always been a tough-as-nails woman. As a newly made vampire, she's absolutely fierce.

In new clips from Sunday's episode, Tara (Rutina Wesley) demolishes the kitchen at the home of her best friend Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin).

Sookie and Lafayette (Celsan Ellis) can only look on in awe – and fear – as Tara zooms around destroying pretty much everything in her path.

Let's hope Lafayette manages to grab that bottle of True Blood for his hungry cousin before it's too late.

True Blood is back. And the witches are not!

HBO's supernatural hit returned Sunday night with its season 5 premiere, and probably the biggest question on everyone's mind was, "Is Tara alive?"

Well to find out, fans had to wait until the end of the hour-long episode, which picked up right where season 4 left off – literally.

Review: True Blood Is Crazily Entertaining

True Blood Is Crazily Entertaining

A mix of gore, sex and camp humor, True Blood is constitutionally so unstable, it never has to worry about jumping the shark: It could waltz with a penguin too, and who'd know?

The first episodes of season 5 are a mess, with little of the cohesion provided by last summer's strong, seizing guest performance by Fiona Shaw. But the show is still crazily entertaining.

Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) are pawns in the growing fundamentalist vampire war. We're ushered into oppressively corporate vampire headquarters and learn all sorts of silly arcana about these monsters. For example, did you know vampires can suffer developmental disabilities? This is revealed in a bizarre plot twist that plays like a sick joke.

Toast True Blood with Bloody Good Cocktails

What better way to kick off the campy new season of True Blood on June 10 than with a couple of blood red cocktails.

Basil Hayden's bourbon teamed with L.A. mixologist Joel Black to come up with two drinks inspired by the HBO hit's supernatural themes and the show's gutsy leading lady, Sookie Stackhouse, played by expectant mom Anna Paquin.

Fans who want to imbibe while Sookie, Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and a host of supernatural creatures battle it out in Bon Temps, might want to try – what else – a spicy True Bloody Mary or a sweet floral cocktail dubbed Sookie's Virtue, which includes red grapes and raspberries.

Pregnancy apparently isn't keeping Anna Paquin off of her feet.

Fresh from True Blood's latest season premiere event, the expectant starlet accompanied hubby Stephen Moyer and some castmates to new Hollywood night club Lure to celebrate at the after party.

"Anna showed off her baby bump and talked about the joys of pregnancy," an onlooker at the club says.

Fellow fan favorite Joe Manganiello (who stars in the upcoming Magic Mike) was also present at the party, "enjoying food, music and attention," the source says, adding that he "was courteous to his fans and was even taking pictures with some of them."

Anna Paquin Shows Off Her Baby Bump at True Blood Premiere

Originally posted 05/31/2012 10:25AM

Anna Paquin's own big premiere is still several months away, but the actress showed off her growing baby bump Wednesday at a Hollywood screening of the new season of True Blood.

"I feel fantastic," she told reporters. Paquin, 29, who's expecting her first child with husband and costar Stephen Moyer, sported a stylish black dress, with her bump noticeably larger than last month, when she stepped out at the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

"It's always amazing," Moyer told PEOPLE of being a dad again (he has two children – Lilac, 10, and Billy, 12 – from a previous relationship). "I love my kids so much. And the fact that Anna is pregnant just adds more crazy to the bundle of fun."

True Blood Season 5 Teaser Premieres – Can You Dig It?

Originally posted 04/02/2012 09:05AM



The new season 5 teaser for HBO's True Blood begins, appropriately enough, with an ending – a grave-digging scene, with Sookie (Anna Paquin) burying a body.

Is it the body of Tara (Rutina Wesley), last seen getting shot in the season 4 finale? That's just one of many questions raised by the quick flashes we get of the new season, which premieres in June.

It's not all doom and gloom, though. We also get glimpses of Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) kissing ... well, somebody. And Eric and Sam (Sam Trammell) shirtless.
