True Blood Stars Are Everywhere – Get Used to It

True Blood, the most popular show on HBO this summer ever is getting some serious attention. Who doesn’t love sex, violence, gallons of blood and some supernatural story-lines? We certainly do. Because of this ridiculous amount of fame, the cast of the show that’s practically putting Twilight out of its pussy misery are starting to crop up in a bunch of different places.

Deborah Ann Woll, you may know her as Baby Vamp Jessica or even That Really Hot Ginger, is joining the ensemble drama Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You.

The drama tells the tale of an isolated youngster (Toby Regbo) who must contend with his dysfunctional family the summer before he heads to college. Ellen Burstyn, Marcia Gay Harden, Lucy Liu and Stephen Lang are already on board.

The Baby Vamp plays the protagonist’s sister, who is dating a married professor and writing her memoirs, hoping to cash in on the youthful memoirs craze. The film, which shoots next month in New York, is based on the novel by Peter Cameron.

It’s no surprise that the rest of the cast of True Blood are everywhere as well. Alexander Skarsgard is a couple of weeks away from shooting Battleship, while Stephen Moyer is starring in a feature version of 1960s TV series The Big Valley.

Woll’s success doesn’t stop with the memoir movie. She began booking roles the day after she wrapped shooting the third season. She got a role in Catch .44, a crime drama with Bruce Willis and Malin Akerman, then moved straight into Seven Days in Utopia, a sports drama with Robert Duvall and Melissa Leo.
