Arliss Howard takes a position of power in True Blood season 6

Y'all familiar with Cowboy from FULL METAL JACKET? You think fanged faeries and sprites stand any chance against that badass? Hell nah!

According to TV Line, Arliss Howard (seen right) has landed a major role on the 6th season of HBO's "True Blood." Howard will play Louisiana Governor Creighton Burrell, described as a good ol’ boy politician who has a major beef with vampires ever since his wife ran off with one, leaving him as a single father to their only daughter. Politically savvy and perhaps overly ambitious, Creighton tends to let his personal aspirations overshadow his humanity.

Ha, his wife ran off with a vampire? Cold blooded!

In terms of TV, Howard has recently appeared in "Rubicon" and "Medium." He also appeared in MOMEYBALL last year, his first film role since 2009 (THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE).

I have to say, with Rutger Hauer and Robert Patrick already set for TB season 6, now Howard...the show sounds more and more watchable by the day.

Expect the show to return around summertime.
