Director Alan Ball's third season of
True Blood will add another gay character, the Hollywood
Reporter is reporting.
Hunky Kevin Alejandro will play Jesus
Velasquez, a Latino orderly who becomes involved with flamboyant gay
prostitute and blood dealer Lafayette Reynolds.
Little is know about the character but
Weekly's Michael Ausiello, citing a “True insider,”
spilled the beans: “Lafayette is getting a boyfriend!”
Alejandro continues to be listed as a
regular on Southland, the NBC to TNT police drama that
features television's gruff gay cop, training officer Jon Cooper
(played by Michael Cudlitz). New episodes of Southland are
expected to premiere in March after the cable network broadcasts the
show's first season starting January 12.
Season three of True Blood began
filming in December.
