True Blood fans crossing their fingers for a Sookie Stackhouse and Alcide Herveaux hookup in Season 6 might not want to hold their breath. Alcide’s pack has gotten him a lot of tail before; but now, with his new title, he has a whole lot more field to play.
"Alcide is now the pack master, which means he has lots of dating options," actor Joe Manganiello tells E! while filming an ice cream commercial, "It's good to be the pack master! I remember I asked the producer, ‘What do pack masters do all day?' And they're like, ‘They get all the were-bitches!'"
He does hint at some difficulty for Alcide this season, though: “They're an unruly bunch; they're werewolves. So keeping them in line is a difficult job that Alcide never wanted.”
So Alcide will be a little too busy (in more ways than one!) with his pack to start anything but a platonic relationship with Sookie. But never fear: if it’s just some hot werewolf footage you’re after, there will be plenty of it in Season 6. When asked just how naked Alcide will get, Joe responds, “I'm True Blood naked!”
True Blood Season 6 premieres on June 16 – but good luck waiting that long! We may have a meltdown before then!
