True Blood execs have cast the role of the Louisiana Governor Truman Barell. Arliss Howard (Medium and Moneyball) will play him.
Arliss Howard will be series regular for True Blood's sixth season!
Truman is described as a good boy politician who has a major beef with vampires ever since his wife ran off with one, leaving him as a single father to their only daughter. Politically savvy and ambitious, Truman tends to let his personal aspirations overshadow his humanity.
True Blood's season six will premiere in June. The actual premiere date is TBA.
