tbs7025

The video below shows a casting video for a new character “Brigette”. This character will portray a “hot microbiologist” on season 7. SPOILERS don’t peek unless you wan’t spoiling. (no news as to who will play this role yet)

From the dialogue it sounds like the “Chuck” person killed a vampire the night before. Also you can hear the name Willa. Willa states that she used to know Chuck (when she was still human).

True Blood Season 7 On Location New Images Bellefleur Home

DSC_7217

True Blood is busy filming their final season. Yes season 7 will be the last one for the show. The location used was located in Los Angeles at the home used for the “Bellefleur” scenes. The home is where Sheriff Andy and his half fairy daughter and Arlene live. Chris Bauer was the only cast member on set while I was there (Had to leave early sadly). When Chris saw that fans were across the street he came on over and took photos and signed autographs.

It really is a small world since there were 2 groups of fans who were from Germany and it turned out they were from the same city! Ingo was in town after filming a music video for ATB and the ladies (one was named Chris )  were also on vacation. It is great meeting fans from all around the world!

The filming was interior shots so we could not see that but could hear them saying “rolling” , action and cut. There was also a large curtain/blue screen and scaffolding in front: Continue reading

New photos of Alexander Skarsgard and his team mates for Walking with the Wounded have surfaced. Yes Alex stripped down again! Huge thanks to santress for the find and to Eonline for the article!

In a new recently released photo from his South Pole charity trek back in December, the super-sexy True Blood hunk strips down again to celebrate his team’s journey across Antarctica for Walking With the Wounded.

In the photo, which was taken on Dec. 13, 2013, Skarsgård stands in the snow in only tiny black briefs, boots and a hat (check out those abs and pecs!). On his face he wears a fake yellow beard and sunglasses.

Meanwhile, the 37-year-old actor’s Team Noom Coach teammates sport similar stripped-down costumes with underwear, fake beards and hats. The gang all stand together for the chilly photo op.

The whole team carried beards with them during the 200-kilometer trek to provide lighthearted entertainment when morale was low during the arduous journey.

Main Street Films Aquires Joe Manganiello’s “LA Bare”

1609612_631280513575715_1328589570_n

MAIN STREET FILMS ACQUIRES JOE MANGANIELLO’S “LA BARE” FROM 3:59
 
High profile Slamdance premiere results in competitive deal-making for theatrical release
PARK CITY, UT – Main Street Films announced today the acquisition of Joe Manganiello’s La Bare.  Manganiello’s production company 3:59 Inc., run by brother Nick Manganiello, produced the crowd-pleasing documentary.  The Magic Mike star’s directorial debut gives an insider’s look at the history, the lives and the culture of the most popular male strip club in the world, La Bare Dallas.
The movie premiered Sunday night as one of the most high-profile films in Slamdance history.  The appetite was strong and tickets were hard to come by for the sold-out, raucous premiere, which was attended by the La Bare dancers featured in the documentary, and followed by a Q&A with Elvis Mitchell after the screening.  Slamdance’s President and Co-Founder, Peter Baxter, had this to say about the screening, “During programming, we knew the audience would go wild for La Bare and they certainly did!”

Main Street Films’ Chairman, Craig Chang, and President, Harrison Kordestani, were amongst those in attendance, and after seeing the audience reaction to the film, made their opening offer in the lobby of the Treasure Mountain Inn less than five minutes after the credits rolled.  The deal is mid-six figures for North American and Chinese rights and said to include a theatrical guaranty and commitment for a minimum 20-market US release to take place in Summer 2014.
“Our mantra is ‘engaging entertainment’ and that’s across all genres,” said Harrison Kordestani, President of Main Street Films. “From indie, action, romance, drama, comedy, and now documentary…Main Street Films is committed to creating a diverse universe of films that have a unique voice and vision.  We are really impressed with what Joe has produced and are excited to partner with him on distributing La Bare in North America.”
“I was immediately impressed by Main Street’s excitement, vision, resources and character,” said the pic’s director Joe Manganiello.  “I got that sense in my gut right away that this was the right company to help launch 3:59′s flagship film La Bare, as well as form a strong partnership for future projects.”
World-renowned DJ, Zach “Z-Trip” Sciacca, composed the music for the film, enhancing the project with an additional layer of emotional depth and hipness, and played the packed after-party where multiple distributors were trying to find time to discuss a deal with the Executive Producers and film reps, Shaun Redick and Ray Mansfield, of Movie Package Company.
Pic adds another dimension to an already over-achieving career for Manganiello, who can count television star (True BloodHow I Met Your Mother), film star (upcoming SabotageMagic Mike, Raimi’s Spider-Man series), and successful author (Evolution with Gallery Books, a Simon & Schuster company) amongst his career accomplishments to date.  Now add film auteur.
The deal was negotiated by Harrison Kordestani on behalf of Main Street Films and by Executive Producers Shaun Redick and Ray Mansfield of Movie Package Company.

True Blood Season 7 Meet the New James

blog

True Blood has found it’s new “James”. Nathan Parsons has been cast to play the role of James. Luke Grimes who had played the character and love interest for Vampire Jessica had asked to be released from his contract.

TVLine reported that : “He initially joined the show because he wanted to work with [his Forever co-star] Deborah Ann Woll,” explained a source close to the actor. “But when he started reading the scripts for Season 7, he was disappointed to learn that they were going in a completely different direction with James.”

Per Ausiello:  ”According to a True Blood insider, James will find himself at the center of a surprising love triangle in Season 7.”

Another love triangle! Hmm Jessica/James/Jason perhaps?

True Blood Season 7 On Location Filming Photos Morrocan Flair

DSC_0025 (1)

True Blood season 7 filming started this week. Earlier in the week Stephen Moyer and Chris Bauer were spotted on location filming for the final season premiere episode.

photo-10Last night I was able to see the show filming in another location at a hotel in Los Angeles. The hotel was built in the 1920′s and was originally a YMCA. The decor is a Moroccan theme with vivid colors, detailed tile work and many Persian style rugs. (felt as if I were back in the Middle East where I lived for 2 years).

DSC_0028 (1)

This location seemed very suited for the action that was listed in the casting call for episode 7.01 titled “Jesus is Gonna Come”.

DSC_0029 (1)

The shots were interior ones towards the back of the hotel and also downstairs (those images are above).

DSC_0027

It was great to see Kristin Bauer van Straten. When she saw us she came right over and was all smiles for our photos.

photo-5

There was a car with a cute dog waiting with it’s owner and Kristin rolled down her window to say hi to the pup. She is such a big animal lover (and great activist for animal rights). The pup was so cute and was all wags and even ‘talked’ to her (cute little barks).

TBS79Spotted Audrey Fisher busily putting the finishing touches on the wardrobes of the many extras on location. She really out did herself with all the different looks for this episode. There were a few extras milling around and came over to us. It was fun seeing them break character with us and then go into their ‘character’ and speak a few words of Arabic.

Saw a few other possible spoilers so I won’t post about them yet. They work so hard on the show I don’t want to ruin all the action. It will be sad to see the show in the final season. Waiting sucks but at least they are busy filming now!

The gallery below contains photos from the on location filming for 01/08/14. The images with watermark are the ones I took. There are a few from the hotel website that I included to show some of the areas we were unable to see due to the filming.

UPDATE:  This actor was seen at the location. Could not tell what his role was but sure it was a vampire one. Found this on tumblr stating that he has been cast as Nizor : Not confirmed if he is playing Nizor but I can see that part for him.  imdb has him listed as playing Nizor for the True Blood season 7 premiere. I am not sure he will be in any other episodes (see casting call..)

Casting call stated:
[NIZOR] Male, Persian, late 30s to 50s. This burly vampire involved in a game of Russian roulette in a Moroccan bar derives courage and comfort from his faith in Allah…GUEST STAR

With the safety of all those involved at the forefront of Expedition Director, Ed Parker‘s mind, the following decision has been made going forward for the Virgin Money South Pole Allied Challenge:   Continue reading
