This past season on True Blood, we didn’t exactly get to see a lot of Lafayette’s (Nelsan Ellis) mother dearest, the always offensive Ruby Jean (Alfre Woodard). And now, according to Entertainment Weekly, Alfre is headed to Private Practice to play the mother of a less-dramatic man, Sam Bennett.

Alfre’s episode of Private Practice will air in November, but we would bet we haven’t seen the last of Ruby Jean either. Especially not after Jesus' (Kevin Alejandro) head paid Ruby a visit last season ...

Would you guys like to see more of Ruby Jean? Will you watch Alfre’s Private Practice episode?
