Peter Mensah True BloodSpartacus‘ Peter Mensah is joining True Blood‘s upcoming fifth season in a recurring capacity.

According to our sister site Deadline.com, Mensah will play Kibwe, a ruling member of the Vampire Authority.

What does this mean for his role as gladiator sensei Doctore on the Starz drama? Probably nothing. The show’s third season doesn’t go into production in New Zealand until April, leaving Mensah plenty of time to squeeze in a trip to Bon Temps.

  • He has a great charisma on screen!
    I remember him as General Perry in the scenes of Terminator : The Sarah Connor Chronicles set in the future; i wish he had told us more about Cameron’s (played by the beautiful and talented Summer Glau) real motivations.

  • I will not watch vampire stuff. Peter deserves better. But acting is a job, and a check, as I know. He was a titanic presence in Spartacus. I would love to see him in stronger roles, and in films. He has a dignity, a gravitas, an intensity, indeed a sexiness, that would fit MANY genres. He may be 53, but he could be in his late 20′s from his screen presence. Hope his agent realizes this. A gem this man is. A gem. And I am an old, disabled white guy, so no hidden agenda here. Just an admirer of great acting, and a huge footprint from an actor.

  • Oh, yeah! Doctore in Bon Temps! Sweet. Will he playing kiss-ass Vampire? Peter Mensah is such a brilliant actor, he is big deal in Spartacus, maybe one of the reason why show is big hit. See you in Bon Temps Doctore!
