On June 2nd, The CLARE Foundation will be hosting Art and Silent Auctions to support their recovery programs in the greater Los Angeles area. One of the items up for bid is a tour of the True Blood set, hosted by none other than Stephen Moyer! As most of you are aware, Steve has been a great supporter of CLARE in the past. Click on the caption below for more details.
CLARE has eleven residential, outpatient and community-based programs offering culturally sensitive English and Spanish recovery services to a diverse population of men, women, children, the homeless, those facing criminal prosecution for drug and alcohol offenses and the general adult population. At CLARE, recovery involves individual effort, the support of others, and a clean, secure and sober environment.

I’m sure most of you in Stevedom have seen pics of Steve and his family at a friend’s get-together this past weekend, but here’s one that all y’all might have missed … Steve letting out his competitive side in a game of bean bag toss.
Want a refresher on what went down in True Blood Season Five? On Friday, May 24th at 9:45 p.m. EST, HBO will be airing True Blood Season 6: Authority on Season 5 Preview. I think Ryan Kwanten sums up Season 5 perfectly: “It’s a wham bam, thank you ma’am kind of a season.” Yup.
As the S6 premiere date draws closer, the HBO publicity machine goes into high gear. HBO released some promotional photos for S6, and the cast is looking mighty fine. And as a special gift, we’ve been treated to Bill Compton, in his white Henley.
Thank you, Daddy HBO!

Entertainment Weekly has a first look at Steve directing Anna in the first episode of S6. Steve joked with EW, “I’m really Method, so I did the whole [shoot] naked.” What I wouldn’t have given to be on set that day …
These episode summaries are rather brief, and it also appears that the episode titles have changed again (something that happens every season). But one thing is certain: it looks like Bill’s gonna be front and center of all the action for these first few episodes! As always, don’t proceed if you don’t want to be spoiled!

These summaries should keep our speculation thread quite active in the coming days. Pop on over to our forum and join us for some great discussion if you haven’t already done so.
Last week we got our first look at the international poster for Steve’s new flick, Evidence, and this week we get a peek at a few of the screen caps from the film. The screen caps feature Steve and his costar Radha Mitchell. Evidence is due to hit theaters on July 19th, so mark your calendars!
Directed by The Fourth Kind‘s Olatunde Osunsanmi, Evidence centers on two detectives (Moyer and Mitchell) who attempt to piece together what happened at the scene of a brutal massacre using a number of recording devices found at the crime scene.
“When the police arrive at an abandoned desert gas station after a brutal massacre, they find no evidence at the crime scene except for some of the victim’s personal electronics, which include a video camera, a Flip-cam, and two cellphones. With nothing else to go on, a troubled detective must analyze and piece together the footage from the personal electronics in order to figure out what the hell happened and who the killer is.“
Spoiler TV has disclosed the title for episode #609 – “Life Matters”. Along with this are a few co-starring roles that still need to be cast.
- A crazy vampire.
- A sickly vampire.
- A male vampire who is the sickly vampire’s progeny.
Game of Thrones viewers got a special surprise last night, by way of a new True Blood preview that aired a couple minutes before showtime. No new footage, but there are some familiar voices to be heard!
Another teaser, another True Blood character, but still no Bill. They always leave the best for last!
Free Ride has found a distributor in Cargo Entertainment, which has bought international rights to this crime thriller. Free Ride is the first film to be produced by CASM, a production company owned by Stephen Moyer, Anna Paquin, Mark Larkin and Cerise Hallam Larkin. Not only does Anna star in it with Cam Gigandet, but Steve was the executive producer of this first time endeavor for their company. Now we just need to wait for a release date.
Anna plays a single mom who moves to Florida with her daughters to try and make a better life, but gets caught up in the drug-trade business in the late 1970s. Gigandet plays Paquin’s love interest.
