TRUE BLOOD: Season 5: Kelly Overton, Louis Herthum Cast

Kelly Overton, Louis Herthum

Kelly Overton, Louis Herthum cast in True Blood Season 5. Kelly Overton, Louis Herthum being cast in Season 5 of True Blood introduces new werewolves into the popular and lucrative HBO supernatural series. I would have said the “vampire series” but there are so many things rattling around in the series now it is not truly about just vampires anymore.

On the casting of Kelly Overton and Louis Herthum:

Overton has been booked for 6 episodes and Herthum has been tapped for 5. I hear that the deals for both include series regular options for next season. Overton, repped by Innovative Artists, will play a dirty, beautiful werewolf named Rikki who demands to know what’s become of the pack leader. Herthum, repped by Main Title and Progressive Artists, will play a particularly large Marine-type werewolf who refuses to bow down before the new pack leader.

Fans of terrible videogame-to-film adaptations will recognize Kelly Overton from 2010’s Tekken. This picture set: Tekken (2010): Kelly Overton Gluteus Maximus Muscle Photos shows why she was cast in that martial arts film yet knew no martial arts. Regardless, it looks like werewolves are going to be in vogue next season on True Blood. What are your thoughts on these castings?
