Kevin Alejandro Joining True Blood


Kevin Alejandro (“Southland”) is joining Alan Ball’s vampire drama “True Blood,” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Alejandro, expected to appear in almost every episode of the HBO series’ upcoming third season, will play Jesus, a Latino orderly who is taking care of Ruby Jean Reynolds (Alfre Woodard) at her care facility and becomes involved with her son, Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis).

Alejandro continues to be attached as a regular to “Southland,” which recently moved from NBC to TNT.
