Ladies and gents: The great vampires vs. werewolves battle of the aughts will rage on into the next decade ... but in a new venue. According to Entertainment Weekly, True Blood has cast a lupine crush for Sookie, whose beloved bloodsucker Bill was kidnapped by a silver-wielding mystery foe in the recent finale.
Sigh. Is there anything better than a supernatural love triangle?
And now for the frosting on the cake: The new character, Alcide, will be played by Joe Manganiello, who won us over as One Tree Hill's bartender/extreme basketball player/and Brooke-boyfriend, Owen!
If the HBO series follows the book's storyline for Alcide, he will be brought in by Eric to help Sookie search for Bill. Long nights on the road with a handsome manwolf? There's bound to be a little attraction.
What do you think of the casting? Did you like Owen on One Tree Hill?
