'True Blood' scoop: Denis O'Hare crowned King!

dennis-ohare_lInsert your own fresh meat joke here: Off my just-completed one-on-one with Alan Ball, I’ve learned that True Blood has cast Tony winner Denis O’Hare (Take Me Out) as the king of Mississippi.

The veteran actor’s name may not be a household one, but you’ve for sure seen him. He’s appeared in roughly a million movies (Milk, Duplicity, Quarantine) and pretty much that many TV series, too (most notably a 10-episode run on Brothers & Sisters).

O’Hare joins True Blood as a series regular. He’ll debut early into the show’s third season, slated to air next summer.

Thoughts? Happy that Evan Rachel Wood’s queen won’t be the only royal on tap for the future? Sound off below.
