True Blood Season 6: Friday Night Lights’ Jurnee Smollett Joins the Cast!
Another day, another cast member added!
This time it’s Jurnee Smollett — whom TV lovers will recognize as the actress behind Jess Merriweather on Friday Night Lights or Lisa Tyler on The Defenders. Her other credits include stints on Full House and Cosby. She'll play Nicole Janssen, who, according to Zap2it, is a twentysomething girl who couldn’t care less about owning material goods and whose only cares in the world are altruism and justice.
However, as the casting notice elaborates, “Nicole's naive optimism is charming but ultimately vaguely idiotic and dangerous.”
Yikes. Assuming she’s human, it sounds like Nicole’s ill-advised good deeds could make her an easy target for a thirsty vampire...
Then again, she could be a vampire herself...
Unless one of you plans on silver-ing the True Blood writers, we’ll just have to wait to find out more.
