Lafayette’s finally getting some.
As I first teased in Ask Ausiello, True Blood has been quietly searching for a thirtysomething Latino actor to play a love interest for Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) during the drama’s upcoming third season. Well, the search is over!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the role has gone to Southland’s Kevin Alejandro.
Alejandro will play Jesus Velasquez, a good-natured Latino orderly who’s caring for Lafayette’s mother (played by Alfre Woodard).
