True Blood Cast Makes TV Guide Highest Paid Stars List

TV Guide posted a listing of “TV’s Highest Paid Stars” in their August 13, 2012 issue. The True Blood starts Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer made this list. For all the naysayers who still think Alex is not a lead actor (I know not any that visit this site regularly feel that way) take note that he is paid the same as Anna and Stephen. Congratulations to all the actors who made the list! ( I remember after season 1 Anna was the only one who made their list and it is great to see that her pay has doubled since then)

True Blood Triangle Twist

True Blood season 4 spoilers have been tricking out in faster speed post PaleyFest! The newest TV Guide (scan shown above) writes about a few of the spoilers chatted about during PaleyFest . The newest one involves a new twist on the romantic triangle for season 4. No not an Eric/Sookie/Bill romantic triangle- this one comes from Joe Manganiello. Ontheflix.com wrote

Joe Manganiello who plays werewolf Alcide on the hit show,described a sexy scene that goes down,involving Alcide,Eric,and Sookie. He said it’s like a “sandwitch.” Hmm, very interesting. Anna followed up with a tease,saying that when werewolves shift back,they don’t have any clothes on.

So it sounds like fans will have quite an interesting “sandwich” for season 4! Yes waiting sucks!
