True Blood Season 6 Audition Videos

046

Here are a few audition videos for several new characters for the sixth season of True Blood. The casting audition videos for : Ben, Violet, Nicole, Wes and Governor Burrell. A huge thanks to Ericandsookielovers forum for the videos: link here: (great and fun forum for fans to chat about the show)

Ben: (this actor did not get the part it was filled by Robert Kasinsky): SPOILERS it sounds like the scenes they are rehearsing in the video may be actual lines for the new season. If Ben is a teacher in the scene perhaps he is there to replace Luna (probably died from skinwalking too many times). Sounds like maybe Sookie is there to pick up her things? Character info from the casting call:

[BEN] Mid 20s to mid 30s. Ultra charming, ultra handsome. Needs to feel like the kind of guy women and men are completely drawn to, but also needs to possess a low-key quality, a southern gentility, that Sookie would find familiar and comfortable. His dark side, however, is dark, dark, dark…SERIES REGULAR. ONE-YEAR DEAL.

Audition video for the character of Violet:

Audtion tape for “Nicole” this role was filled by Jurnee Smollett: the character info from the casting call:

[NICOLE JANNSEN] Bi-Racial (African American / Caucasian) Mid 20s.   A true bleeding heart. She’s not at all concerned with money, she’s concerned with the common good and doing what’s right. Probably went to Bryn Mawr and drives an old Saab. Life hasn’t beaten her down yet.  She and her band of well-meaning liberal advocates model themselves after the civil rights activist “Freedom Riders” of the Sixties. A do-gooder to the core, Nicole’s naive optimism is charming but ultimately vaguely idiotic and dangerous…SERIES REGULAR

Audition Video for “Wes” this character will appear in episode 6.05. Character info from the casting call:

WES] Male, Mid to late 20s. Sexy, spiritually and emotionally deeper than any other vampires we’ve seen. Think cross between Jim Morrison and Gary Clark, Jr. with even more of a poet’s edge and an extremely well-toned body. He was made vampire in the 1970s. Wes is smart, compassionate, a good listener, a protector type and he can play the guitar. Face it, he is every woman’s dream but he doesn’t know it. He will be a part of a love triangle with Jason and another vampire. . Actor must be willing to show full rear nudity. Open to Caucasian and all ethnicities.

Governor Truman Burrell (this actor did not get the part- it was filled by Arliss Howard. I saw him at filming 1/31/13). Sounds like Steve Newlin is also in this scene. character info from the casting call:

[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.

Waiting for the new season sucks. Really hope that HBO will release a new trailer for the new season during the Game of Thrones premiere on 3/31/13.

True Blood Season Six Casting Call Episode 6.05

DSC_0188

SpoilerTV posted a new episode title for 6.05 and casting call:

The title of True Blood episode 6.05 is “F**k the Pain Away” and several recurring, guest star, and co-star roles are being cast: recurring guest star Finn, who is a middle-aged prison psychiatrist; three mean recurring/possibly recurring Prison Guards; guest star Justin, who is surprised when his Marine Corps buddy Terry contacts him with a strange request; guest star Jenny, a hooker who’s also a werewolf and will be in 2 episodes; a co-starring truck stop bar Customer, who doesn’t like Alcide’s curiosity; and Somchai, a co-starring beautiful Thai woman who is used to get vampires to participate in therapy. (I may be wrong, but from the role descriptions it sounds like vampires might be put in prison and given therapy.)

There is a song by Cults with the title “Abducted” video below:

Song lyrics:

Lyrics to Abducted :

I knew right then that I’d been abducted
I knew right then that he would be taking my heart
I knew right then no one was above him
I knew right then that he would be breaking my heartHe tore me apart because I really loved him
He took my heart away and left me to bleed out, bleed out
He broke my heart because I really loved him
He took it all away and left me to bleed out, bleed outI knew right then that she’d been abducted
I knew right then that I would be taking her heart
I knew right then that I’d never love her
The reasons I hope the dream hasn’t left her scarredHe tore me apart because I really loved him
He took my heart away and left me to bleed out, bleed out
He broke my heart because I really loved him
He took it all away and left me to bleed out, bleed outHe tore me apart because I really loved him
He took my heart away and left me to bleed out, bleed out
He broke my heart because I really loved him
He took it all away and left me to bleed out, bleed out.The page here on site has all the casting calls for season six to date: True Blood season 6 casting calls
