Alan Ball Adds Swede to HBO Vampire Show

Teen girls aren’t the only ones getting into those sexy sexy vampires! Alan Ball, who created the morbidly hilarious Six Feet Under, is making his own show about them, based on Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire book series. Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard, a son of Stellan Skarsgard (Good Will Hunting, that evil guy in Pirates of the Carribean), has joined the cast of Mr. Ball’s True Blood. The show centers on the love story between a vampire, Bill (Stephen Moyer), and Sookie (Anna Paquin, X-Men‘s Rogue), a waitress who can read people’s minds. Mr. Skarsgard, a tall dark and handsome type of course, will play a vampire and Viking who has been alive for more than a thousand years.
