Well, Stephen Moyer, who played the vampire Bill for seven seasons on HBO’s True Blood, has gone from romancing Anna Paquin to following in her footsteps.
Moyer has joined the untitled X-Men series from creator Matt Nix (Burn Notice) as the lead. The show focuses on two parents who, upon learning their children are mutants and hunted by the government, go on the lamb and find refuge with an underground group of mutants.
Moyer’s character, Reed, is the dad in this scenario, and the father of recently-cast Jamie Chung’s Blink.
This show is said to take place within the same world as the X-Men films (Moyer’s True Blood co-star, Paquin, played Rogue).
More casting should be announced soon, so stay tuned as more develops.
