True Blood Exclusive: Mom's the Word for My Name Is Earl Alum

True Blood is introducing the woman who gave life to late werewolf packmaster Marcus, and they found one tough mother to play her.

True Blood Spoiler Alert: Meet Eric’s Vampire ‘Sister’ 

My Name is Earl character actress Dale Dickey — who knows a thing or two about channeling formidable, backwoods matriarchs (see: her acclaimed, award-winning performance in last year’s Winter’s Bone) — is joining the HBO hit as Annie, Marcus’ werewolf mother.

Powerful and respected within the pack due to her late son’s position, Annie is determined to perform a particular ritual. Might said ritual involve making Alcide pay for whacking her demon spawn?

Dickey is set to recur throughout TB‘s upcoming fifth season.

      Dickey played a character on one Breaking Bad episode. Remeber the ATM machine junkie couple with the kid that Jessie encounters?

        YESSSS! I was just thinking that!

        Junkie dude: “You’re a skank.”
        Dickey’s character: “I ain’t no skank.”
        Junkie dude: “Skank skank skank skank skank!”

        Love it!

    Its drepressing seeing such a great actress playing a lame-ass supernatural creature as TB Were. Weres are poorly written and boring characters on the show; their not as interesting as shifters or vampires.
