GLAAD’s ‘gayest show on tv‘ is coming to it’s final season. Late last year there was a casting call for Lafayette to get a boyfriend named Drake, a”cross between Jim Morrison and James Dean…and insanely good-looking vamp [who] is a compassionate protector with a poet’s edge.”
The sarcastic casting note continues:
The series-regular role calls for a twenty-something actor who is comfortable performing in simulated (and near-naked) sex scenes with another man in front of the director, assistant director, stage manager, script supervisor, camera operator, first assistant camera, second assistant camera, boom operator, production sound mixer, key grip, best boy grip, gaffer, lighting technician, makeup artist, hairdresser, costume designer, a half-dozen production assistants and Sally with craft services (who shouldn’t be peeking in but probably will be).
There’s no sight of either in the teaser below. But, I already know I’m not ready to say goodbye.
‘True Blood’ returns June 22 at 9p/8c on HBO. #TrueBloodForever
