True Blood has just cast its first new roles for season 2, and both picks are bloody fantastic!

First up, Broadway babe Anna Camp — she’s currently horsing around with Daniel Radcliffe in Equus — has been tapped to play the series-regular role of Sarah, the hot-to-trot wife of Steve Newlin (aka the Fellowship of the Sun’s big kahuna). And The Bold and the Beautiful‘s stellar Ashley Jones has booked a six-episode arc as Daphne, a new Merlotte’s waitress — and I hope, I hope a new love interest for poor Sam. (P.S. soap fans, no, she won’t be hanging up Doc Bridget’s well-worn stethoscope; the two-time Daytime Emmy nominee will juggle blood transfusions and blood-suckers.)

So what do you think, guys? Are you psyched about the new additions? Or are you too busy counting down the days (and days and days) ’til HBO’s Golden Globe-nominated smash kicks off its second season? Tell me about it below.
