True blood stars dating real life

20 May

OK, I just watched episode 1 of this new HBO series, created by Alan Ball ("American Beauty," "Six Feet Under"), and there is simply no question in my mind that it's going to be one of the hottest things on TV. Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin, from "The Piano") is a waitress in a local eatery during the day and at the local bar at night.

She's pretty normal, except that she can read minds.

Anna Paquin plays precocious and telepathic Sookie Stackhouse who falls in love with brooding vampire Bill Compton, played by Stephen Moyer.

Except that the hook of this series is that vampires "came out of the coffin" on national TV a couple of years earlier. There is not a clunker in the cast, or an off moment in the writing. In the latest episode: Arielle Kebbel dishes on how she told her parents about her Fifty Shades Freed role, and Black Panther stars name the real-life heroes that inspired their characters.

On "The Office," Nancy Walls played Carol Stills, the woman who reluctantly dated and then broke up with Michael Scott (Steve Carell) after he gave her a creepy Christmas card with his head superimposed on her ex-husband's body.

In reality, the two got married back in August 1995, long before they played exes on TV.

Mac and Sweet Dee definitely don't get along on "Always Sunny," but the actors who play them -- Rob Mc Elhenney and Kaitlin Olson -- have been married since September 2008.

Yes, that means she stuck with him even during the "fat Mac" stage.
