"True Blood" casts vampire, werewolf

By Nellie Andreeva

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - HBO series "True Blood" is adding two more hunks to the fold for next season.

Up-and-coming actor Theo Alexander and "Ugly Betty" heartthrob Grant Bowler have landed recurring roles on Alan Ball's vampire drama.

Alexander will play Talbot, an "intensely beautiful" vampire, the boyfriend of Russell Edgington (Denis O'Hare), the vampire king of Mississippi. Talbot has an acerbic sense of humor and loves to cook despite vampires' inherent lack of cooking talent.

Bowler will play werewolf Coot, the menacing ringleader of a biker gang.

Greece-born Alexander has several guest shots on his resume -- appearances on "Chuck," "CSI: NY" and "Pushing Daisies" -- and recently booked a role in the feature "Losing Control."

New Zealander Bowler has had a recurring role on ABC's "Ugly Betty" as fugitive Connor Owens, the scheming squeeze of Wilhelmina (Vanessa Williams).

Alexander and Bowler join "Prison Break" alum Marshall Allman, who was recently cast as a regular, playing Sam's (Sam Trammell) long-lost younger brother. Production on the "Blood's" third season started Wednesday in Los Angeles.
