Two of our favorite horror shows are already casting for next season, with two people added each to Dexter and True Blood.

First up, True Blood has added two young women to the cast in Amelie Rose Blaire and Jurnee Smollett (our name of the week!)!

Smollett, who charmed my heart on Friday Night Lights (and has been on The Defenders, Cosby, Full House and a bevy of other TV shows), will play Nicole, “a do-gooder who possesses the rosy outlook of someone that life hasn’t beaten down yet. She’s not concerned with money and more concerned with the doing what’s right.”

Blaire will be Willa, the daughter of the new Louisiana governor, played by newcomer Arliss Howard.

HBO’s competitor, Showtime, has also added two new names to its premier show, Dexter. British actress Charlotte Rampling and Sean Patrick Flanery join the cast.
