British actor Rob Kazinsky is joining ‘True Blood’ as a sexy fairy with deep ties to Sookie & Jason.
Just when you thought Sookie (Anna Paquin) didn’t have enough suitors on True Blood, another eligible bachelor is making his way to Bon Temps. HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site TVLine is reporting that Rob Kazinsky will romance Sookie in season six as Ben, a “highly charismatic” fairy who helps Sookie and Jason (Ryan Kwanten) solve their parents’ murders.
Ben will almost certainly butt heads with Eric (Alexander Skarsgard), who is Sookie’s only other available suitor as of this moment. Alcide (Joe Manganiello) has his hands full with girlfriend Rikki, while Billith (Stephen Moyer) — well, just look at him!
Fans of Charlaine Harris‘ original Sookie Stackhouse novels — myself included — are likely disappointed that Sookie’s new love interest isn’t Quinn, the sexy weretiger she shacks up with in the series’ fifth book. As of yet, there are no plans to add him to the show.
What do YOU think of Ben? Are you tired of all the new love interests for Sookie, or do you think they make a good match? Drop me a comment with your reactions to this news.
