True Blood newcomer Kevin Alejandro says season 3 is going to be “really fuckin' sexy.”

Alejandro is the latest gay character in Director Alan Ball's vampire drama airing on HBO.

He plays Jesus Velasquez, a Latino orderly who becomes involved with flamboyant gay prostitute and blood dealer Lafayette Reynolds.

Speaking to gay glossy Out, Alejandro talked about his character's love life: “Jesus is a nice balance to Lafayette – the yin thing. They're opposites, but it works. They keep each other in check.”

NBC was first to nab Alejandro for their Los Angeles-based police drama Southland. The series, which features television's gruff gay cop, training officer Jon Cooper (played by Michael Cudlitz), will return for a third season on cable network TNT, which picked up the show last year.

This season of True Blood, Alejandro assures, is going to be “really fuckin' sexy.”

“I think it's going to open a lot of eyes,” he adds.

The 34-year-old Mexican-American actor also played gay on the second season of HBO's Big Love.

Alejandro married his wife Leslie in 2004 and the couple has one child.
