KEVIN ALEJANDRO JOINS "TRUE BLOOD"
Released by Rick Porter/ From Inside the Box
Kevin Alejandro, a member of TNT's "Southland" ensemble, is joining the cast of "True Blood" for its third season.
Alejandro will play a love interest for Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis), according to The Hollywood Reporter. His character, Jesus, is an orderly who's helping care for Lafayette's mom (Alfre Woodard). He's scheduled to appear "in almost every episode" of season 3, which will debut in the summer.
He's also still attached to "Southland." The former NBC series debuts on TNT on Jan. 12, but the cable channel is planning to see how it performs before deciding whether to go back into production. That leaves some room on Alejandro's schedule for "True Blood."
