Kelly Overton (The Ring Two) and Louis Herthum (The Last Exorsism) will recur on the fifth season of HBO‘s vampire drama True Blood, while Joe Manganiello teases more hairy times ahead for Alcide.
Deadline say Overton has been booked for 6 episodes with Herthum signing on for 5. Both deals include series regular options for next season.
Meanwhile, Joe Manganiello says he’s looking forward to working with another new cast addition, Dale Dickey, and teases trouble ahead for Alcide:
“We’ve got Dale Dickey, who’s joined the cast from ‘Winter’s Bone,’ who is awesome. I can’t wait to work with her and I think there’s gonna be some werewolves who are gonna give Alcide some trouble this season, as well. I’m anxious to see who they’ll cast.”
True Blood Season 5 premieres summer 2012 on HBO.
