‘Southland’ Star Kevin Alejandro Joins ‘True Blood’ Cast

Yet another sexy casting announcement has been made concerning the steamy HBO series, True Blood. The Hollywood Reporter writes that former Ugly Betty star, Kevin Alejandro, will be joining the cast of vampires living in the bayou of Louisiana.

You might recognize Kevin from his role in Southland (which you should be watching religiously, in case you aren’t already) and he will juggle both gigs while waiting to hear if the L.A. police drama will return for a second season.

As for his True Blood identity, Kevin will appear as “a Latino orderly who is taking care of Ruby Jean Reynolds (Alfre Woodard) at her care facility and becomes involved with her son, Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis).”
