Is 'True Blood' Resurrecting Russell?
Alan Ball knows how to keep the coffin sealed on True Blood secrets but last July, actor Denis O'Hare revealed in an interview that Russell Edgington -- Mississippi's former vampire king who Bill & Eric buried "alive" after he punched up a boring newscast -- would be coming back to Bon Temps!
He said: "They were definitely bringing me back, it was just a matter of if they wanted to bring me back the last couple episodes or bring me back at the beginning. So they decided to do it at the beginning of season 5."
And now it seems like we have unofficial confirmation of Russell's resurrection thanks to the first True Blood season 5 promo, which HBO unearthed last night.
True Blood premieres this summer on HBO.
