VAMP JUICE

‘True Blood’ Planning Lots Of Gay Sex For Lafayette And New Boyfriend

Lafayette-reynoldsThe future looks bright for Lafayette Reynolds, the True Blood token gay that can rock daytime drag as convincingly as he can shake up a group of bigots. Insiders following production of the show’s seventh and final season are reporting the flamboyant, magical drug dealer will skip certain death and end the series with a bang—a bang courtesy of a valiant new boyfriend.

Little is known about Drake, the new boyfriend who may or may not be played by Drake himself (probably not, but it would be pretty hot). Producers are currently auditioning the role, which they describe as a twenty-something “cross between Jim Morrison and James Dean…and insanely good-looking vamp [who] is a compassionate protector with a poet’s edge.” (On second thought…it might actually be Drake.)

The new man in Lafayette’s life is allegedly a “serious” boyfriend—serious enough to lay it on his new man at the drop of a hat. According to the casting notice, Drake’s role sounds like that of an emotionless sex machine written into the story because everyone on set wants to watch him have (simulated) sex with Lafayette:

The series-regular role calls for a twenty-something actor who is comfortable performing in simulated (and near-naked) sex scenes with another man in front of the director, assistant director, stage manager, script supervisor, camera operator, first assistant camera, second assistant camera, boom operator, production sound mixer, key grip, best boy grip, gaffer, lighting technician, makeup artist, hairdresser, costume designer, a half-dozen production assistants and Sally with craft services (who shouldn’t be peeking in but probably will be).

Sounds to me like Sally is behind all of this. I just hope she’s able to maintain the craft services table between those peeks.

    This show had such an amazing first season but it was all downhill after that…..happens to most shows, but I’m glad this one is finally being put to rest.

  • B Damion

    I really enjoyed this character very much. I just couldn’t stop laughing at some of his antic’s lol.

    But,this doesn’t seem realistic. Why would Lafayette a very femm man end up with a very good-licking(lol) James Dean type white boy?

    I mean…is it me or? does this really happen?

  • JennyFromdabloc

    @B Damion: I agree, not believable. Lafayette is fun but the least sexy character on the show. Thankfully this is the final lap for True Blood.

  • TrueWords

    Yes, the show has tumbled low and happy for it to end

  • KiraNerysRules

    I think that totally believable. You guys are making it sound like feminine guys are not attractive or that white guys would not be attracted to feminine black guys. It may not be popular, but I prefermore feminine guys. I think the actor who plays Lafayette is really sexy.

  • KiraNerysRules

    That being said, the show is terrible, now.

  • KittyLitter

    @B Damion: Lafayette isn’t exactly “femm-” he’s gone through so many changes throughout the series.
    If this is the only thing that seems unrealistic about this show then you have serious problems.

  • Charlie in Charge

    Suck it haters, Lafayette perfectly blends masculine and feminine throughout the series and already had one great relationship with a mystical hottie.

  • jimbryant

    Note how True Blood is only introducing the male-male element in the show’s dying days. Where has it been up to now? Astutely avoiding it?

    Let’s not beat about the bush here – True Blood has been very homophobic towards the concept of male homosexuality. The show deserves to be criticized for its homophobic attitude towards male-male sexuality.

    Character’s been downhill since, what, Season 3? I don’t want mopey, angsty Lafayette. I want AIDS BURGER Layfaette.

  • Jonty Coppersmith

    @B Damion:

    I’m white and your comment is offensive. Why would you assume a good looking white guy wouldn’t be attracted to Lafayette?

  • Kangol

    @Jonty Coppersmith:

    Thank you, B Damion’s comment is both r@cist and homophobic. Desire cannot be reduced to formulas like “young white gay butch man”?”middle-aged black femme man.”

    I do want to know why this show has had to kill off the non-white boyfriends and girlfriends of both Lafayette and Tara over and over. What is that about?

    The writers really need to think about breaking out of their ethnocentric mindset. Pronto. And please let Lafayette evolve from something other than a straight person’s black gay stereotype. Yes, ma’am, huntee.

  • Kangol

    Well, there was a does not equal sign above between “young white gay butch man” + ”middle-aged black femme man” that didn’t show up. People from both categories CAN end up together. That’s what was intended.

  • balehead

    Feed this lame-ass show an “Aidsburger” already….

  • Pistolo

    All the sex scenes in the world can’t save this show. But Eric nude was pretty nice. That got my attention. Penis or bust (no, by bust I do not mean boobs).

  • Sebizzar

    @jimbryant: You can’t be serious…. you obviously haven’t watched enough of the series, otherwise you’d know there have been at LEAST 5 hott gay/homoerotic scenes. And you’d remember Lafayette’s ex who was prominent in seasons 3, 4, and 5!

  • Sebizzar

    @jimbryant: Oh and you’d also remember the obvious gay rights references within the “vampire rights”.

  • Charlie in Charge

    @jimbryant: You’re clueless, there have been numerous gay males on the show including:

    Lafayette Reynolds
    Jesús Velásquez
    Steve Newlin
    Russell Edgington
    Talbot Angelis
