Exclusive: 'True Blood' finds fresh meat in Camp and Jones

Annacampjonestrueblood_l
True Blood has just cast its first new roles for season 2, and both picks are bloody fantastic!

First up, Broadway babe Anna Camp — she’s currently horsing around with Daniel Radcliffe in Equus — has been tapped to play the series-regular role of Sarah, the hot-to-trot wife of Steve Newlin (aka the Fellowship of the Sun’s big kahuna). And The Bold and the Beautiful‘s stellar Ashley Jones has booked a six-episode arc as Daphne, a new Merlotte’s waitress — and I hope, I hope a new love interest for poor Sam. (P.S. soap fans, no, she won’t be hanging up Doc Bridget’s well-worn stethoscope; the two-time Daytime Emmy nominee will juggle blood transfusions and blood-suckers.)

So what do you think, guys? Are you psyched about the new additions? Or are you too busy counting down the days (and days and days) ’til HBO’s Golden Globe-nominated smash kicks off its second season? Tell me about it below.

    I don’t really know of either of them – I just love the show & am so excited for its golden globes nods :O

  • Dominick

    I CAN’T WAIT!!! After watching the 1st season, I’ve now read the 1st 3 books in the series and asked for the rest for x-mas. The books only get better and better

  • Dixie

    I hope that Ashley Jones gets a better storyline than she has on B&B!

    CAN’T WAIT TILL NEAXT SEASON. I READ THE BOOKS AFTER THE FIRST SEASON WAS OVER. IT ONLY TOOK ME 2 WEEKS TO READ THE FIRST 7. I READ 2 BOOKS IN A 24 HOUR PERIOD. WE HAVE A HOUSE FULL ON SUNDAY NIGHTS WHEN THE SERIES WAS RUNNING, NOW WE ARE ALL HAVING A HELL OF A TIME FINDING SOMETHING TO GET INTO. SO SUMMER CAN’T COME FAST ENOUGH FOR US. KEEP THE UPDATES COMING.WE LOVE TO HEAR WHAT’S GOING ON. I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE SOME OF THE OTHER PEOPLE THEY CAST…LIKE FOR STAN AND LEIF AND THE BELLBOY. AND TO SEE IF THEY ARE EVEN GONNA USE THEM CHARACTERS. THE SHOW IS ALOT DIFFERENT THAN THE BOOKS, BUT I LOVE THEM BOTH..IT’S LIKE TWO DIFFERENT STORIES WITH THE SAME PEOPLE..I DON’T MIND ONE LITTLE BIT…KEEP UP THE INFO.

    Great casts!
    Im eagerly looking forward for the next season!
    This was 2008 best new show!
    Wondering if they are gonna follow the books storyline or do like they do on Dexter; make up their own!
    I cant wait! =)

    I don’t know them really either. I’m going through withdrawls and counting the days till True Blood comes back with Season 2.

  • greg

    They’re both cute- so that’s a plus. My question is- Is Lafayette really dead?!? Please someone say its not true! We have a house full every sunday to watch and everyone of us Boo’d and Hiss’d when he disappeared and then they found a body in the car that sure as heck looked like him- Say it Aint So!

  • To Greg

    Do you really want to know if he’s really dead? Read the book.

  • To Greg Again…

    I would tell you myself but I don’t want to get in trouble for spoiling.

  • Ann

    I am desperately awaiting the new series. I hope the two additions will be a plus to the show. If not…oh well!!

  • Sanna

    Honestly, I just want the new season to start. I’m sure both will be a good add to the cast. But I just want to read something new about Bill and Sookie, hehe

  • Chele Belle

    @greg: As to the existence of Lafayette, well let’s just say I HOPE & PRAY that Ball’s deviates from the books.

  • Dr. No

    Very nice, very hot, very True Blood worthy.

  • Jen W

    I can’t wait for the new season!! But here’s a tip…if you want more Sookie & Bill read the books! They are so AWSOME!!! I can’t stop reading them!

  • Lauren

    Love the show, love the books. I am True Blood obsessed!
