Get ready to make another new acquaintance come Season 6, Truebies. Examiner reports that John Fleck has been cast as Dr. Overlark for the upcoming True Blood saga.

That name makes us think the character is an evil scientist, but apparently Overlark is a vampire-hating advisor to the (fictional) Louisiana governor. Not that the governor needs any help hating the bloodsuckers: Word is that his wife is a fangbanger.

John is a character actor known for roles in TV shows like Weeds, Star Trek: Enterprise, and Carnivale; and movies like Waterworld.

He’ll appear in multiple episodes this season, so he’ll be more than a Fleck in the storyline. (Ba-da-boom!)
