'Moonlight' Fans Are Bloody Invested
Devotees stage blood drive for not-cancelled drama
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Moonlight" fans are joining forces with the Red Cross and YouChoose.net to organize a nationwide blood drive in support of the series. Already more than 3,000 fans have pledged to donate a pint.
In addition, the trade paper is reporting that the fan actions are expected to prompt Alex O'Loughlin, the show's blood-sucking star, to take a new role as Red Cross spokesman.
While "Moonlight" has routinely lost viewers between "Ghost Whisperer" and "Numb3rs" on Friday nights, CBS gave the freshman drama -- subject of extensive casting and showrunning tumult both before and during the season -- a vote of confidence with a four-episode post-strike order.
"Moonlight" returns to CBS on Friday, April 25.
