510 Hoyt season 5 jim parrack hoyt fortenberry ep 10 gone

So long, sweet Hoyt (photo credit: HBO)

Last night’s episode (#510, ‘Gone, Gone, Gone’) of True Blood was so emotional, especially the scenes with Hoyt, Jason and Jessica. Is Hoyt gone for good? TVGuide.com talked to Jim Parrack about leaving the show.

Is this really the end for Hoyt?
Jim Parrack:
I mean, the real honesty is that I don’t know. I know that [executive producer] Alan Ball told me that they didn’t want to kill him, that Hoyt’s going away because Hoyt’s had enough. But Alan was adamant that one of the reasons they wanted to do that was to leave him the option to have a return.

I think that if it did end this way and Hoyt never came back, it would be good storytelling because it’s just a complete journey from somebody who was utterly dependent upon other people, never stuck up for himself, or got to think for himself and then to fall in love and all the betrayal and hardships and him saying, “You know what, I’ve got to take care of myself.” I think it told a whole story.

Let’s talk about filming the glamouring scene, as well as the scene where Hoyt doesn’t remember Jason. How hard was that for not only you, but for Deborah and Ryan?
Parrack:
It was tough for all of us. Those were my two best friends on the show. When I found out, when Alan called me to tell me what was going to happen, I didn’t want to tell everybody right off. I pulled Ryan and Deborah aside and they both got emotional and I got emotional. The day that we shot the scene, which I haven’t seen it yet, it felt good. I think it was easy enough for all of us because there were parallels there. What was happening in the imaginary situation was us saying goodbye and the three of us were also saying goodbye.

Jim Parrack Will Star in ‘Black Dog Red Dog’

JimParrackPremiere other projects movie jim parrack True Blood star Jim Parrack and the star of Child Of God, Scott Haze, will star in a new film titled Black Dog Red Dog, set to be produced (and also possibly star) James Franco.

The film, which will be made up of a series of short films directed by the students of Franco’s NYU class, is based on a book of poetry by Stephen Dobyns which won the National Poetry Series award in 1983. Franco recently posted videos of the pre-production phase of Black Dog Red Dog and they can be viewed on James Franco T.V.

James Franco produced a similar project last year with the poetry book Tar. The film starred Franco along with Jessica Chastain, Mila Kunis and many more well known names.

Parrack, Franco and Haze are close friends, having worked together on each others’ various directing and acting pieces in both stage and film. Franco’s work is always fantastic, especially when it comes to poetry in film. This was most evident with his recent directorial effort The Broken Tower, which followed the life of the poet Hart Crane. It was one of my favourite films of the year and you can read my review here.

Parrack has been solidifying himself a place in Hollywood with the incredibly popular True Blood and Haze, who envisioned, built and founded The Sherry Theater in North Hollywood, has starred in film and TV, as well as written, directed and starred in critically acclaimed plays including Devil’s Night and Angel Asylum. On top of that, from what I’m hearing about Child Of God, I think people will be paying a lot more attention to Scott Haze very soon.

Black Dog Red Dog will begin shooting next month and we will bring you more information as it arises.
