Fifty Shades of Grey just got a little hotter. With Jamie Dornan locked and loaded as Christian Grey, producers can move on and cast a few of the supporting characters. Joining the sexy film adaptation is Luke Grimes. The 29-year-old scores the role of Christian’s brother, Elliot Grey.
Grimes was most recently seen on True Blood. He played an imprisoned vamp who got busy with Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll). His other acting credits include playing Ryan Lafferty on Brothers & Sisters, and Maggie Grace’s boyfriend in Taken 2.
I’m definitely on board with this casting. Hopefully producers do as good of a job casting Anastasia Steele’s roommate Kate and Grey’s bodyguard. Still not sold on Dakota Johnson as Anastasia, but whatever. Check out more pictures of Luke below.
True Blood fans brace yourselves. The end of the supernatural series is coming soon. HBO announced the show’s upcoming seventh season will be its last.
Looks like Sookie (Anna Paquin) only has ten more episodes to sort herself out. Will she end with Bill, Eric, Alcide or someone else. According to showrunner Brian Buckner, Season 7 will be a love triangle between Bill, Alcide and Sookie, leaving Eric out in the cold… so to speak. If you saw the Season 6 finale, you know exactly what I mean.
Hopefully, the remaining episodes will include more homoerotic moments like the one Jason (Ryan Kwanten) participated in this year. That was beyond hot.
“‘True Blood’ has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,” HBO president Michael Lombardo says in a statement. “Alan Ball took the books by Charlaine Harris, assembled a brilliant cast led by the magnificent Anna Paquin in the role of Sookie Stackhouse, and crafted a show that has taken its many devoted fans on an unforgettable journey.”
Just as I suspected and hoped for. Alexander Skarsgard isn’t going anywhere. True Blood showrunner Brian Buckner revealed to TVLine.com that the sexy Swede will appear on Season 7 as a series regular.
With that being said, Eric Northman won’t be walking around Bon Temps all fine and dandy when the supernatural series returns. Buckner states that would be a “cheat.” I agree with his comment but how in the hell are they going to resurrect Eric from his seemingly fiery death?
Speaking of toasted crispy Eric… If you recall, when he was atop the snow-capped mountain in Sweden, he was reading a book. Like me, you probably were too busy looking at his nakedness to even pay attention to what piece of literature he had in his hands. Continue reading to find out what book it was.
If you haven’t watched the Season 6 finale of True Blood yet, don’t proceed. Hopefully you have, because last night’s episode was wicked. It was the perfect way to cap off a great season and set the foundation for the upcoming one. My one complaint is that they killed off two of the supernatural show’s hottest vamps.
First there was Warlow meeting his true death. Though I didn’t expect Robert Kazinsky to stay, I hoped producers would find a creative way to keep him. I’m still swooning over that steamy homoerotic scene with Ryan Kwanten.
The other death was a bit more shocking, though expected if you’ve been following rumors surrounding the show. Alexander Skarsgard who plays Eric looks to also have met his demise while sunbathing atop a Swedish snow-capped mountain. When Warlow died, his magical blood powers which Eric drank, made vamps once again susceptible to sun. Ergo Eric bursting into one huge fiery flame.
Hopefully, the writers didn’t kill him off because that would be a huge bummer. Perhaps Pam, who was on a mission to rescue him arrived in time to save him. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait til next summer because HBO and show producers are keeping mum on the topic. Just in case you missed it or you want to see Skarsgard completely naked again, watch the scene below.
I don’t know about you, but I’m really enjoying this season of True Blood. After reading all about the behind-the-scenes drama and the shaky season premiere, I was ready to write off the show, but with a brand new showrunner, the show has rebounded. That supremely hot homoerotic shaving scene didn’t hurt either.
With only four episodes left, HBO debuted a trailer for the remainder of the season at San Diego Comic Con. Be forewarned, there are potential spoilers ahead. Side note: Was anyone else disappointed with last night’s death that producers have been teasing all season long? As much as I would’ve loved a bigger player to meet his maker, I’m just glad the rumors about Eric Northman dying proved untrue. Check out the “True Blood Season 6: In the Weeks Ahead” clip below.
No one lives forever, but True Blood lives to see another day. The HBO supernatural series has been renewed for a seventh season. With Alan Ball stepping down as showrunner during this season, the drama behind the scenes replacing him and the Season 6 episode order cut to only ten instead of 12 episodes, many thought the show was on its last
legs fangs. Apparently, not so.
“True Blood remains a signature show for HBO, and a true phenomenon with our viewers,” HBO president Michael Lombardo said in a statement. “Thanks to Brian Buckner and his talented team, the show continues to be a thrill ride like nothing else on TV.”
As long as they keep filming super steamy scenes like that shaving one featuring Ryan Kwanten and Robert Kazinsky, I’ll keep watching. That erotically charged dream was by far the most homoerotic thing they’ve aired in years. Speaking of that hot moment. Kazinksy recently talked about his experience filming his first “love scene” on the show. Check out his interview below just in case you missed it last week. His accent makes him even sexier.
Since Brian and I had a few friends over on Sunday (joint birthday BBQ), I wasn’t able to watch True Blood til last night. Talk about a belated birthday gift. I haven’t been this captivated SLASH turned on by an episode of the HBO show in seasons.
Arguably, the scene between Jason (Ryan Kwanten) and Ben/Marlow (Robert Kazinsky) was one of the supernatural series’ hottest moments ever. Never have I wanted to have a shaving session more ;) For this alone, Kazinksy needs a spot on my Top 10 Hottest True Blood Guys list. Making the moment even steamier was the use of Miguel’s super sexy track, “Adorn.” Man, I love that song like you wouldn’t believe.
When TB first aired, I was all about Kwanten, but as the seasons aired, Alexander Skarsgård and Joe Manganiello became my favorites. During the latest episode, Ryan made a comeback. Not only was his homoerotic scene with Kazinsky everything, the vision of him doing pullups was a sight to behold as well. Never have I been so mesmerized by sweaty back muscles. Check out his workout and the shaving clip below. Be sure to have a glass of ice water nearby. You’ll need it to cool off.
Well, isn’t Joe Manganiello one generous fellow. Just last month he showed off his Greek god-like body to Men’s Health UK. He’s once again shirtless but this time it’s for the US version. The 36-year-old covers the publication’s June/July 2013 issue and heads to the beach for the inside editorial.
Clearly, the magazine has a hard-on for Manganiello. Not only is he their cover boy, but he recently ranked as No. 1 pick on their Best Summer Bodies list. I don’t blame them. He’s all that and then some. Side note: Did you catch his hot sex scene on the True Blood season premiere this past Sunday? His butt left me absolutely speechless.
“I’m playing a werewolf. I want to look sinewy. I want to look like an animal when the shirt comes off, but I want it to be a bit misleading when I have the shirt on.”
