Yesterday we got our first look at a promo photo Christopher Meloni in character as Roman, the leader of the vampire organization called The Authority in the upcoming 5th season of HBO’s True Blood. Today we get to see Meloni in action as Roman in a just-released teaser video for True Blood. Based on the image we saw yesterday, I assumed The Authority was kind of like a vampire mob family organization. The teaser clip below shows me just how wrong I was.
Whoa. Creepy. But … intriguing. For the most part, True Blood is mostly silly and comical. Yes, there are sometimes some creepy aspects to the show but the comic relief usually tends to defuse audience tension. This tiny tease of The Authority in action is actually … scary. I am really curious to see how this will play out in the forthcoming season. As I said before, I think Christoper Meloni will make an excellent addition to the show. I can’t wait to see him in action, on the show, for reals.
