Preston Jones Joins True BloodGoon
I honestly have not been following along with the new vampire series on HBO True Blood. For one I don't have the channel and two it just doesn't look that exciting. But since the show is going into a second season the fans must be there to warrant it. Today Variety announced that Preston Jones would be joining the cast in Season 2 with a recurring role which has not yet been revealed.
Alan Ball, creator of Six Feet Under, returns to HBO with a new series based on the novel series Southern Vampire by Charlaine Harris. The series follows Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic barmaid who finds comfort in the company of vampires since they have no brainwave activity for her to read.
She and her brother Jason were raised by her grandmother after losing their parents in a flood and she tries to keep her telepathic ability a secret. Thanks largely in part to the creation of a Japanese-made synthetic blood called True Blood (where the series takes it name) vampires have make their existence known to the world. Sookie works at the bar 'Merlotte's' which is owned and operated by her boss Sam Merlotte who has a secret of his own.
