For those of you that have read the books, the name John Quinn is very important (and anticipated). There has been no mention – yet – of John Quinn appearing on the show. I wouldn’t think he would appear before Season 5 so this is premature – but a fun topic for fans of the Southern Vampire Series books.
In Dead As A Doornail, Charlaine first describes Quinn. “He was very tall…had big shoulders and arms roped with muscle. His head and arms were the brown of a Caucasian with a real tan.” If you haven’t read the books I don’t want to give away what is most special about him.
My friends and I would love to be around when (if?) they do the casting for Quinn. As my friend Nicole says, it is important that not only does he have the look, but that he says “Babe” as sexy as he sounds in her head when reading the books.
We thought it would be fun to come up with some candidates to play Quinn. My first choice is Jason Momoa (Nicole agreed, and she is picky). He does have a lot of hair, but does Quinn really need to be bald? Jason is 6’4″, 31 years old and Hawaiian. I first drooled over Jason when he played Frankie the bartender in the TV show North Shore in 2004. He’s also appeared in the TV shows Stargate: Atlantis and The Game. Jason will soon be starring as Conan in Conan the Barbarian, and you can watch him next Sunday at 9:00 p.m. on HBO in the Game of Thrones which airs right after True Blood. His character’s name is Khal Drogo.
What do you think? Any preferences of your own?
