This is some casting news I can really get my teeth into. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robert Patrick (Terminator 2) has landed a recurring guest role in HBO’s True Blood.
Patrick will star as Alcide’s father, Jackson Herveaux. “Patrick will first appear in a flashback episode that depicts Alcide (Joe Manganiello) and Debbie Pelt (Brit Morgan) as teenagers in the 1980s. At the time, Jackson was said to be a “powerful, inspiring and heroic” guy, but in the present, he’s given up on life.”
Patrick will make his onscreen debut this August 5th in Episode 9. He will appear in three episodes.
