Ryan Kwanten Dishes On 'True Blood' Season Five

KwantenTrue Blood's new season got off to a fast and furious start last week, and where that show will go next is anyone's guess.

While the cast is absolutely forbidden from discussing specific details, Parade magazine managed to get Ryan Kwanten, the drool-worthy actor who plays Jason Stackhouse, to offer a few details on where his character is headed.

Kwanten also spoke out about Stackhouse's acceptance of [SPOILER] nemesis Rev. Steve Newlin, who has come out as a "gay vampire American."

"When you look at Jason in season one he had a very tunnel view of the world and some would say an ignorant view. And now, that speech he gave to Newlin was 'Look, I accept who you are, whether it's a vampire, whether it's a gay man, or both. But that's not the way this dog barks,'" he said.

"That's a huge step for Jason to change his spots...Towards the end of the season, which we are shooting now, he puts the things he has learned into practice and starts to show his true colors."

'True Blood' Teases Flesh, Fangs of Season 5: VIDEO


The first True Blood teaser for Season 5 has arrived:

The first to actually show new footage and characters from the upcoming Season 5, the short 30-second clip gives a montage of scenes with a voiceover from an assumed Authority member (which will be led by Law & Order: SVU star Christopher Meloni as Roman). Clearly, the movement to have humans and vampires coexist isn’t on their agenda.

“So as the beetle nourishes the lark,” the ghostly voice says. “So shall human nourish vampire.”

Movies: Colin Farrell Scares in "Fright Night", Channing Tatum Strips in "Magic Mike"

I know it's tempting but do not invite him in.

Colin Farrell has something of a wolf's reputation as a celebrity and it serves him well in Fright Night, a remake of the 1985 vampire comedy, while playing a shameless monster. Yet, for all his rabid dog violence as vampire Jerry -- "a terrible name for a vampire!" --  the most adorable moment in his performance is positively kittenish. While stepping around a beam of sunlight during one action setpiece he hisses at it with instinctual annoyance. You can't scare sunlight away, dumb Jerry! It's a silly bit of actorly business but the new Fright Night soars whenever the cast or director are having a bloody good time.  Good times at the movies are as infectious as vampirism, though thankfully more common. 

Full disclosure: I've never seen the 1985 Fright Night and affections for previous versions usually dull love for new takes. But a quick bit of research suggests that the new version uses the same basic characters and set-up but plays fast and loose with the twisty details and basic temperament. The premise is ingeniously simple and relatable. What if you found out you lived next door to a monster? Charley (Anton Yelchin) resists the question at first, betraying his former best friend Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) in the process, but soon he comes to know the truth: his next door neighbor is indeed a vampire. Jerry is rapidly eating the population of an isolated and rather transient suburban town outside of Las Vegas. Charley, his girlfriend (Imogen Poots) and his mom (the sadly wasted but always game Toni Collette) may be next. Enter, sort of, Peter Vincent (David Tennant of Doctor Who fame) theatrical magician, vampire killer and total poseur.
