True Blood – Will They Ever Have “Bubba” Show Up On The Show?

Dear Sara,

True Blood is just about to start a new season. Will they ever have “Bubba” show up on the show? I don’t think it should be too hard for them to get an Elvis impersonator to wear fangs and act a little ‘teched.


Dear Anonymous,

From Day 1 the producers of True Blood have made it clear that they draw inspiration from the Southern Vampire Mysteries of Charlaine Harris but that they were going to be telling their own stories. There are reasons that Bubba won’t appear although I think it would be a hoot to allude to him in an off camera sort of existence like Maris Crane on FRASIER or Jerry Seinfeld’s cousin, Jeffrey. I think I can safely say The King will never appear on True Blood because A. They would not like a legal tussle with the Presley Estate and B. It would be more slapstick comedy than the producers are willing to use.

The name's Sara Bellum, and I'm the editor-at-large here at BuzzyMag - the hostess with the mostess, if you will. I like to think that my first calling is fighting crime and delivering a heaping dose of sweet, sweet justice to all manner of thugs, miscreants, hoodlums, ruffians, and ne'er-do-wells, but unfortunately, violent vigilantism doesn't exactly pay big bucks these days.  

Times are tough, my friends, and I've got bills to pay, so I decided to put my encyclopedic knowledge of all things sci-fi & fantasy-related to use to help me land a day job. To tell you the truth, it's kind of a nice change of pace. My manicures have been lasting a bit longer lately.
