"True Blood" fans may know him best as Sam Merlotte, but actor Sam Trammell is now set to step out of Bon Temps for a role in Josh Boone's upcoming The Fault in Our Stars. The Wrap reports that Trammell will play the father of Shailene Woodley's lead.
The script, by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, made 2012's "Black List" of unproduced screenplays with the following official log line:
Based on the eponymous novel by John Green, a teenage girl, stricken with cancer falls for a boy in her support group and the two form a bond as they deal with their illnesses.
Tramell, whose big screen work has previously included films like Autumn in New York and Alien vs. Predator: Requiem, also joins Ansel Elgort and Nat Wolff.
