Calling Alcide

A casting call has finally gone out today to find an Alcide.

Leaving this a little late dontcha think? He’s supposed to appear in E03 and they’re already filming.

The casting call is….interesting.

ALCIDE: Good-looking, rough-around-the-edges, articulate, heroic, and decent, but not what he seems. He gets along well with Sookie. There’s even an attraction between the two. Very strong recurring.

Not what he seems? I hope this is just a reference to his tendency to get furry and grow teeth. Other than that, I think Alcide was pretty much the what-you-see-is-what-you-get type. But knowing Ball he will probably end up with some nefarious agenda just to keep things “shocking”.

My pick for Alcide is Henry Cavill…he looks exactly as I picture Alcide.

Who would you guys like to see playing Sookie’s newest furry suitor?


You can stop looking now Alan, I found him.

    Thanks for doing this site with the mobile option. I do my non work Internet surfing on the iPhone only. Finding this Sookie site has made my day.

    They’re only just sending out a casting call now?? Uhhhh that’s nuts, haven’t they been filming for over 2 weeks now?

    The “not what he seems” came straight after “decent”, so I automatically thought of the fact that Alcide has deceived Sookie in some instances ie Colonel Flood’s funeral, the packmaster contest. Again with the pessimism!

    I do like Henry Cavill for Alcide but I have submitted quite a few different actors:
    1. Sam Worthington – http://pics.brizzly.com/KCC.jpg – Doesn’t have the dark hair, but def rough enough.
    2. Jared Leto – http://pics.brizzly.com/KDK.jpg – YUMMMMMMMMMM
    3. Misha Collins – http://images.huffingtonpost.com/2009-11-05-mishacollins.jpg

    I do like Jared Padalecki too, but he is very pretty and probably too tall. We don’t want anyone who will equal our ASkars in height!

      They do, don’t they? :/

      I’m re-reading CD at the moment and I’ve been picturing Henry Cavill as Alcide while I’m reading. I think he’s the one.

    I think Henry Cavill would be perfect! He was amazing in The Tudors, and he has that “scruffy” look about him. While I think he will add more hottness to the show…noone is comparative to ASkars!

    I like HC and SE fairly well of the suggestions I’ve seen so far, but none seem quite right. I guess in my head Alcide was not built like Eric but was shorter (not short, but definitely not over 6 foot) and brawnier…like a linebacker or something. I’m trying to find a pic but no luck yet.

    Ok, so what about Mark Wahlberg? A little older (a good thing in my mind), definitely shorter, bulks up well. Can pull off scruffy. Probably too well-known, but still…he’s not exactly what I had in mind, but as close as I can find for now.

    Luca Calvani?

    How do you say YUM in Italian?

    Holy Moly!
    Phwoar. OK Luca Calvani, definitely high on my list.

    That first pic you posted I thought his eyes were too dark – but I think it’s been altered. The other pics his eyes are green (the green eyes are high on my list of must haves).

    This pic – I’m seeing it. *fans self*

    Luca Calvani is perfect! Rugged, handsome… looks like a strong silent type. And freaking hot!

    Henry Cavill or Luca Calvani… Luca Calvani or Henry Cavill… ‘Be or not to be…’ Could both of them acting as Alcide?! )))))))))
