Two guys from True Blood are set to spice up ABC’s midseason drama GCB. Kevin Alejandro and Grant Bowler both signed deals to appear in the show’s debut season, and will even share an episode.
GCB (formally titled Good Christian
Bitches Belles) has cast Alejandro as Danny – a local butcher who offers to supply meat for Booby-licious (that’s a Hooters-like restaurant in the show) on the condition that Marisol Nichols’ character Heather goes on a date with him.
Alejandro is in one episode, while Bowler will appear in at least two – playing Mason Massey, a “frozen foods magnate and thoroughbred horse breeder.” Sparks fly when Bowler meets with Cricket (Miriam Shor) to negotiate stud fee for his prize horse.
Booby-licious? Dating for brisket? TV dinner-making horse breeders? Okay, these descriptions have us really intrigued. GCB is from Robert Harling (Steel Magnolias) and producer Darren Star (Sex and the City). There’s no premiere date yet, but here’s the show’s trailer:
