Exclusive: Is True Blood Casting Alcide's Father? (Plus Other Season 5 Intel)

The fifth season of True Blood promises to be a hairy one — the show is hunting for actors to play werewolves galore, including one who sounds suspiciously like he could be Alcide’s father!

The lycanthrope in question, J.D., is said to be a hard-bodied fiftysomething who isn’t likely to share a water bowl with the new pack leader anytime soon. And since 1) that sounds a lot like Alcide to begin with, and 2) his pop features prominently in Charlaine Harris’ fifth Sookie novel, well, you can do the math!

My picks to play the part? Maybe Andy Garcia? Mitch Pileggi, who just took another recurring role in the Dallas reboot… or what about Mr. Intensity himself, Vincent D’Onofrio?

We’ll also be meeting: former pack leader Marcus’ mother, Annie; a hot young she-wolf named Rikki who’s determined to sniff out the deceased’s fate; a couple of beta dogs charged with interrogating someone (my guess? Sam); Holly’s teenage sons, Rocky and Wade; a corrupt judge (aren’t they all?); a humorless vamp named Cat (to… balance out the canine/feline ratio?); and a couple of sexy spoilers for Jason and Jessica’s romance.

Add all that to what we already knew — that Salome (yes, the Salome) will feature prominently in the season, and so will Eric’s vamp sis, Nora — and it’s obvious that we’re in for another jam-packed season. Your thoughts? Any ideas about who you’d like to see cast as Alcide’s father? Hit the comments below!

    • In the books two wolf types investigate the disappearance of Debbie Pelt for the Pelt family (and Debbie’s even more crazy sister).. good chance they are for that and not as suggested. AND the person they interrogate is Sookie.

      • In the book Sookie shoots Debbie Pelt and Eric buries her body, then Debbie’s sister and parents come looking for her and interogate Sooking. Not the same storyline as True Blood.

    • I have to agree. At first, I thought Vampire Diaries was going to be really juvenile, but it has turne out to be quite the contrary. The characters are complete & well written. ‘True Blood’ has become very campy-more camp than I care to watch. (Also, I find ‘bad’ Stefan more interesting than ‘bad’ Eric. Who Knew?)

      • Why is it that whenever someone has a negative impression they are insulted? This is a discussion, a place to share thoughts and opinions. Allow people to have theirs, just as you have yours. I greatly enjoy this show and although I felt this last season was a bit of a let down, I keep watching in hopes it will pick back up. If fans do not voice opinion, how will producers understand how to fix the show?

      • I disagree completely, the love scenes between Eric and Sookie are the best I have ever watched on T.V. They brought back parts of my life when I was deeply in love. I admit this season has changed my life forever. In this day of one night stands its refreshing to see that love is still alive though it might not be forever. Eric should have received any Emmy for those scenes with Sookie.

    • I agree KenBud. I know that Hollywood has to make things more palatable to capture the movie and TV viewers attention spans, but I don’t understand why they need to stray so far from the books, or throw in so many extra characters. Has there been any mention of Quinn for season 5?? That’s what I’m waiting for!

    • Oh my god if we could just meet Quinn.. I think the series would get even better. I loved the books with Quinn in them, as much as I’m typically in love with Eric and Sookie. It would be fun to see him portrayed.

      • That kind of stinks… Quinn was a great character in the books, I was kind of looking forward to see who they would put for that character. Oh well, Alcide will have to do then! Lol. And I agree with someone else on here about Ian McShane being his father. He has that burley kind of swag about him!

      Comment by cris – October 26, 2011 02:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • if you stopped watching after the sixth episode, you really can’t judge. every show needs to find its footing in the beginning, and TVD wasn’t any different. starting with Stefan coming out as a vampire and continuing to the present season, this show is awesome.

      plus, really, it’s juvenile to bash shows because everyone has their own opinions. especially if you don’t even watch it!

    • Believe me, Jake. I felt the same way about the Vampire Diaries. However, over the seasons it has gotten ‘aged’ well. It is no longer about teeny boppers. It has well-written scripts & not much less ‘high school’ stuff. The acting has really improved also. Check it out now-this season & also last season. It just keeps getting better & better. There have been one or two missteps (Never leave a vampire for dead and ‘not’ cut off his head!) but it is still a great show.

    Comment by Sarah – October 26, 2011 03:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Well, seeing as they killed off Godric after making him Eric’s sire, they can’t really go with the Appius storyline- and scenes with Appius and the kid playing Alexei would have been too icky even for True Blood. So they get to make up new siblings. Can’t be worse than the original “brother”. Ewww.

  • Sam Elliott.

    Reading the books, I saw a young Sam Elliott as Alcide, then a more recent Sam Elliot as Jackson Herveaux.
    Joe Manganiello as Alcide is a happy improvement on my imagination, but I can still see the auld Blue Jean Cop as the senior Herveaux, even if Mr E is knocking on a bit now!

And if you really do watch tvd, then you would know pam could take on the vamps like caroline, stefan, damon, but vamps like katherine, klaus, elijah and the originals would sorta destroy her, no offense

  • What about ALAN RICKMAN, RON PERLMAN, TOM SKERRITT, SAM NEILL

    Jeffery Dean Morgan or Sam Elliot either one sharing the screen with Alcide and my husband is really gonna like the aftermath of watching that hour of tv!

    Kinda bummed to hear Quinn wont be a character in the show, hope that there is still ALOT of animal action the next couple of years. I know that Alan Ball is brilliant and I love his work but I really dont like how Bill has turned out. But I’m not whining, I really appreciate the fact that he didn’t kill off Lafayette in the 1st season like they did in the books.

    Charlaine Harris and Janet Evanovich keep on writing and I’ll keep on reading.

    Alan Ball keep on making terrific escapism TV like you have for quite some time and I’ll always watch it.

    be a bit shorter than Joe M.
    And he’s got to be about 48??

  • In Season 2 of TrueBlood, Eric’s family died so how is it that he has a vampire sister named Nora?

    • Godric made her too, it’s not his biological Viking sister.

    • According to the spoilers, Godric made a progeny named Nora about the same time Eric sired Pam, this younger “sibling” works as a double agent for the Authority and has been helping Eric ever since. According to True Blood’s flawless mythology, that would make Nora a vampire sister to Eric, much like Sookie serves as a “stepmaker” to Pam. Eric’s nuclear family is expanding next season!

  • Although Stephen Lang is my top choice, he’s probably busy with Terra Nova right now. So I’ve got to agree with many other on here – Jeffrey Dean Morgan, all the way!

  • ANDY GARCIA! OMG! He’s sooo sexy! Although I’d like him better as a vampire,I’ll still take him as a wolf!

  • I really think they need to bring in Quinn. He plays such a big part in Sookie’s life. And he is in 3 books so why not have him. I cant wait to see the Vampire conference but that is still a season away. As for Alcides dad I think Sam Elliott would be a great choice. That scruffy totaly hot manly man like Alcide. YUM!

    • Sam Elliott would be great, the voice and the look Perfect

  • So many of you are talking about who they are going to cast for this and that next….I stopped watching….personally I hate it now it has strayed sooooooooooooo far out away from the books that it’s not even worth watching anymore ( and I was one of their biggest fans and loved the show). Alan you need to wise p son and realize the books are one of the biggest sellers and most read series of books out there….if the books carry such a following why in heaven’s name would you want to stray so far away from them? I read alot of forums/blogs on TB and in every one the one thing most people complain about is WHY you do this. If I was Charlaine I wouldn’t even want my name associated with the show anymore except to say the character names come from my books because other then that they have turned your wonderful books into crap!!!!

    Just my opinion so don’t freak out on me about it.

    • I read the books and love them. I watch the show and try not to see them as one and the same, just the names are the same. I nearly stopped watching in season 2. That was such a freakin mess

  • I would say Javier Bardem would be great as Alcide’s father

  • antonio banderas would be great but then again where wouldent he be great. I am not sure True Blood wants some one that big name.

  • I personally read the first book then stopped reading, it was a chore to get through the first in my opinion, I found the book crap. The killer was revealed much better in the tv series and people need to realise the series is only based on the books, it doesn’t necessarily have to follow everything. I’m fed up of the book fans spoiling everything telling everyone what’s going to happen next and they can’t wait for this scene or that scene. I’m glad they didn’t kill Lafayette off in the first one, he’s brought so much to the show, but if people don’t like it they don’t have to watch, they can just go and read the books. Not sure why they feel the need to keep searching out forums and telling everyone though.

    On a side note Jason keeps saying Bubba alot in season 4, I wonder if they’re going to turn someone wrong in season 5 and make a sort of Bubba type vamp? I’m so glad they didn’t follow the books and bring Bubba into series 1, that was the lamest plot ever!

    • The books and the TV show are SO different. Different series entirely and I think that the HBO show is entertaining for TV, but the books are just way more enthralling and have more story line because…well they are novels…and the reader creates the world in their own head. That’s why the books readers have such strong opinions I think. I agree that book fans should just understand the the TV show is not the book series and just go along with the entertainment of both. To each their own!
      PS…If you couldnt get through the first book…it is similar to the first season, jump on the second one! Like I said, they are both entertaining in their own right!

  • I agree Bill, Sookie and Eric were a bit corny in love but I thought the witch plotline more than made up for it! How can no one comment on that new direction of the show? I am all for more Alcide and no need to introduce another love interest for Sookie… Tru bebbies will continue to watch and haters will whine, if you don’t enjoy tru blood don’t watch it!!!

  • Actually, in the book series (the book released last year to be precise) Eric had a BROTHER, not a sister, so TB is not too far off with the sibling thing. In the book, the “brother” was actually Alexei Nikolaevich, the Haemophilic son of Czar Nicholas II of Russia.

  • First of all, Joe M. is so Italian, and everyone is picking hispanic actors to play his father.But the person I am most interested in is Quinn. As far as I am concerned, no one could play him except Vin Diesel, he would be so perfect to play the weretiger. And is everyone as disappointed as I am with this season, that they changed the fact that when Eric got his memory back that he DID NOT remeber that he was in love with Sookie? That storyline lasts 3 books and creates such an interesting arc with Sookie being so heartbroken and having to pretend everything is back to normal.
