Find out what 3 big stars auditioned for True Blood!

Recommended Posts

Believe it or not, it’s now been 10 years since we first met Anna Paquin’s Sookie Stackhouse and Stephen Moyer’s Bill Compton in HBO’s “True Blood, which premiered back in September 2008. At its best, the series was a wildly entertaining good time driven by one hell of a fun cast, which also included Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley and Alexander Skarsgård.

Speaking about the show’s cast, series creator Alan Ball reflected over the weekend during a 10th anniversary screening of the pilot that it could’ve been very, very different.

Benedict Cumberbatch came and read for Bill,” he said of the role that eventually went to Stephen Moyer. And that’s not all. Jessica Chastain read for what would be Anna Paquin’s role of Sookie Stackhouse. But perhaps most juicy was the news that Jennifer Lawrence was almost a were-panther in Season 3.

“She was great,” Ball said of Lawrence. “But… because she was going to be Jason’s girlfriend, and she was 17 at the time, were like, ‘No that’s gross.’”

I love this show, the whole louisiana southern vibe, the soundtrack, it's really underrated imo. The first 2 seasons are the best
