'True Blood' casts new vampire and werewolf via 'Ugly Betty'
HBO confirms to Zap2it that Grant Bowler -- Wilhelmina Slater ( Vanessa William)'s once-boyfriend Connor Owens on "Ugly Betty" -- will play a werewolf, the ringleader of a biker gang.
The network says actor Theo Alexander -- whom you may recognize from small roles on "Pushing Daisies," "Chuck" and "CSI: New York" -- has also been hired. He will play the love interest of Russell Edgington ( Denis O'Hare), aka the vampire king of Mississippi.
Both characters will reportedly pack a little bite... apart from, you know, any actual biting...
