    Who?

    A character who was in 2 episodes last season that no one can remember his name? LOL.

  • Rono

    Bye.

  • Jagger Dagger

    Luke Grimes needs another manager.

    i hate when shows change the actor of a character its so annoying.

  • thesnowleopard

    Isn’t True Blood ending after next season, anyway?

  • Davie

    So the actor left due to the direction the character was heading in? Whether or not you like True Blood, its been quite a successful series one way or another, I can’t imagine exiting a role on the final season of True Blood will look good on his acting resume, but hey what do I know

    Sounds like they changed what they expected out of the role. Not that he walked. He’s probably peeved if anything.

    He is the actor cast in “50 Shades of Grey” movie, so I am pretty sure he felt he didn’t need the last season of True Blood.

    Slow. News. Week.

    I wish they’d scrap the character completely now, he’s not important for the final season.
