It’s less than a week until the season 4 premiere of True Blood, but that hasn’t stopped news from popping up about season 5.
TVLine reports that Scott Foley has joined the cast of True Blood as Patrick, an old army buddy of Terry’s that pays him a visit down in Bon Temps. Foley is set to first appear on the hugely successful HBO drama on the season 4 finale, with his role carrying over into the show’s fifth season. (It’s not been announced how long his arc will be, but the finale could be used to springboard Foley into a season-long guest spot.) Foley may be best known for his role as Noel Crane in Felicity, but he’s made well-received TV guest appearances, including roles in Cougar Town, Grey’s Anatomy, and Scrubs.
It’s also not been revealed what purpose Patrick is serving in the show (is he human, what’s his secret, what are his ulterior motives, etc.), but to get someone like Scott Foley, my guess is that he’s going to be pretty darn important down the line. My advice? Sit back and watch the show build its way to what is sure to be another insane(ly good) guest appearance from a solid actor.
Are you excited about the upcoming premiere of True Blood? What role do you think Patrick will be playing in the rgand scheme of things? Do you think he’s human or something supernatural?
