A slice of True Blood casting news for you this morning. Christopher Heyerdahl is joining the show’s fifth season. The actor is going to play a vampire, familiar territory for him because he recently played a bloodsucker in the Twilight films as the Volturi named Marcus (that might mean something to some of you).
In True Blood, Heyerdahl is taking a recurring role as “Dieter Braun, an ancient, powerful vampire who plays a large part in the intelligence of the Authority and especially enjoys enhanced interrogation,” says Deadline.
The actor also appears in Hell on Wheels, Caprica and Supernatural.
True Blood season 5 begins June 24.
