Benedict Cumberbatch Could Have Been True Blood’s Vampire Bill

The year was 2008. Barack Obama was in the last leg of his ultimately successful bid for the U.S. presidency and the wildest thing on television aside from election coverage was a quirky little show on HBO called True Blood. The campy vampire soap opera quickly gained a reputation for the way its entire cast chewed up scenery, spit it out, and made audiences beg to scoop it up off the ground. Read More >>
