In perhaps the strangest news we’ve heard all year, True Blood’s Jim Parrack basically says it was easy to hire him for the HBO vampire series since he occasionally dabbles in drinking blood.
Nothing like a blood smoothie to get your morning going, people.
Jim apparently revealed he had a knack for sipping on A, B, AB and O (he doesn’t discriminate) on the opening of Broadway’s Of Mice and Men. He wasn’t kidding.
“I was being literal. I like the real deal," he said in a new interview. When asked why, he offered up this response, "Um, I guess for the same reason some people want alcohol? Or for the same reason some people want, I don't know...milk? Or Kool-Aid?"
But don’t worry, kids. He doesn’t drink it on a “regular” basis. "It's more like on an impulse," the 33-year-old actor explained. "When you make me spell it out like this, it sounds strange, but I just want to be clear — that night, I was being literal. There was something about that night where I had that impulse. I guess the best way to put it is sometimes I just like the way it tastes."
Jim, who had played Hoyt Fortenberry on the series since the first season, has a preference when it comes to blood — it just can’t be any blood.
"I'm absolutely particular," he told Vulture. “…It does something to you emotionally. It's hard to describe."
...As hard as it is to understand, Jim — cheers to you, sir!
