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 Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello, citing a ā€œTrue insider,ā€ spilled the beans: ā€œLafayette is getting a boyfriend!ā€

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.
