The new role of “Governor of Texas”- Creighton Burrell has been filled by Arliss Howard. I loved him on the show “Medium”. Can’t wait to see his character on True Blood. He was recently in the film “Moneyball” and is also known for his role as Kale Ingram in “Rubicon”.
The casting call for this new character for True Blood’s sixth season states:
[CREIGHTON BURRELL] Governor of Louisiana (Late 40s-60s) A classic good ol’ boy politician. Governor Burrell has despised vampires since his wife ran off with one, leaving him as a single father to their only daughter, Ali. Governor Burrell is a politically savvy and perhaps overly ambitious fella who tends to let his personal aspirations overshadow his humanity…SERIES REGULAR.
