Eric is a goodie, Episode 2x12 Title, New Casting Call

True Blood Spoilers about the upcoming episodes, casting calls and episode 2x12 title.

If Alexander Skarsgard waxing poetic on his character Eric is a goodie, then, yes, my friend, we have more True Blood goodies:

Eric was kind of misunderstood. A lot of people would come up to me and say, 'Oh, you're the evil...the bad guy.' I always had to defend him because there's more to him than that," says Alexander.

I actually got a chance to show that [this season]. I mean, he is a badass, of course, but I'm just happy because as an actor, you shouldn't play the same note for two years. You have to show different layers and go deeper and show that there's more to the character than that. And I've had fun this season because I have been able to show that he does have a sensitive side, a loyal side. He doesn't care for a lot of people, and not for a lot of vampires either, but the ones he cares about he's very, very, very loyal and devoted to.

Next week on True Blood, when poor dead zombie Daphne's (Ashley Jones) body is discovered, people start to suspect that Sam (Sam Trammell) killed her.

Sookie and Eric grow closer over the next few episodes, after our fave Viking vamp is injured and needs her help.

Evan Rachel Wood joins season two of the HBO hit as Sophie-Anne, the Vampire Queen of Louisiana. Wood will make her first appearance in the August 30 episode when a desperate Bill (Stephen Moyer) seeks Sophie-Anne's advice.

When asked about Wood's participation on the show, creator Alan Ball told

"She's incredibly talented and expressed an interest in being on the show." Ball is tight-lipped about her character's significance, though, saying that she will be "more important to some than others."

True Blood 2x12 episodes will now be called "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'"
