There is clearly something to the rumor that True Blood co-star Ryan Kwanten might be gay, because it keeps popping up. But new hints suggest it might be his Jason Stackhouse character who will come out gay as HBO debuts its fourth season of the vampire drama on June 26.

Speculation over Kwanten's sexual orientation was first prompted by a post earlier this month that asked, “What HBO star is going to be coming out of the closet soon?”

The ante was raised when celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, who is gay, wrote on his personal Mario Lavandeira Facebook page that Kwanten is gay and social media website said the blind item was referring to Kwanten.

Now comes a new hint, this time from Michael Ausiello, who reported at his website that series creator Alan Ball was altering the sexual orientation of one of the show's straight characters.

“I'm not going to reveal any more clues about the character,” Ausiello wrote. “However, I will say that, having witnessed the big reveal, it doesn't feel gimmicky. In fact, after the initial shock wears off, I imagine you will do what I did and go, 'Yeah. Makes total sense.'”

Would that makes sense? Kwanten's character on the show is a womanizer.
