'True Blood' Season Five Trailer & Photos with Chris Meloni & Scott Foley

By: Colby Scott

So here's some info on True Blood Season Five, including photos that came out last week of Felicity / Grey's Anatomy star Scott Foley in the show, and the trailer with super sexy Law & Order: SVU's Chris Meloni that was released today.

First off, TVLine reports that we won't see Foley naked and having insane sex like so many of the other characters do on the show. “It’s so disappointing because I went on a diet, I got into great shape, I lost weight… and nothing,” he said. So who is his character on the naughty nocturnal series? “I’m not a vampire, I’m not a werewolf, I’m not a werepanther, I’m not a fairy, I’m not a shapeshifter. I’m just a guy coming into town trying to finish something he started back in Iraq.”

As for the ever-handsome Meloni, he plays an ancient, powerful vampire who gets involved in Eric and Bill's lives. Since a lot of the characters are hyper-sexual, we can only hope to see some skin. However. this short teaser has a whole Eucharist-drink-my-blood vibe to it, and we do get to finally see him in fangs. It's a quick shot, which is why it's nice to have the photo of Meloni in a suit below. You know, so we can linger on it a bit longer.

Check out the trailer first, then scroll down for the photos and to learn where you can find a larger True Blood Season Five gallery.
