No, this isn't some kind of spoiler to the fate of Mehcad Brooks' on True Blood
but it does make you wonder if Eggs isn't sticking around for season 3, especially if you've read my article earlier this week
Brooks, who has also appeared on the popular TV drama Desperate Housewives
as Matthew Applewhite, is set to return to ABC as part of the cast of the network's midseason drama, The Deep End
. This dramatic comedy follows four young new lawyers with different backgrounds who enter one of the most prestigious law firms in Los Angeles, Sterling Law.
If you've never heard about The Deep End
, I don't really blame you. The show, which mixes personal and professional lives with sex, greed, romance, hasn't garnered much buzz ever since word got out that it's going to be part of the network's fall midseason slate. And while the show isn't dreadful, it did earn mixed early reviews.
Who knows, maybe the addition of Brooks will make it better. The True Blood
actor, who serves as Tara's love interest for True Blood's second season and Maryann's possessed accomplice, will be playing an associate at the high-end Los Angeles law firm where the show is set, according to The Hollywood Reporter
Brooks joins the previously announced cast, consisting of Matt Long as Dylan Hewitt, Ben Lawson as Liam Priory, Tina Majorino as Addy Fisher, Norbert Leo Butz as Rowdy Kaiser, Leah Pipes as Beth Bancroft, Billy Zane as Cliff Huddle, Clancy Brown as Hart Sterling, and Rachelle Lefevre as Katie Campbell.
So the question remains: what does this mean for Benedict "Eggs" Talley on True Blood
? Do you really think that Eggs has a place on the show next season? Fans will have to find out when True Blood
concludes its second season on September 13.
