True Blood's fifth season hasn't slowed down on the casting yet. True-Blood.net is reporting Robert Patrick has snared a recurring guest star spot this year.
The Terminator 2 and "X-Files" star has been cast as Alcide's pop, Jackson Herveaux, in the season's ninth episode "Everybody Wants to Rule the World." Apparently, his character will be introduced during some flashback sequences in which we get to see Alcide and Debbie in the '80s.
Given how the season started for Alcide, we wonder how flashbacks play into his arc...
