Things have been quiet on the ‘True Blood’ front since the latest teaser came out. There have been a few cast members already added. Yesterday we got an announcement that Peter Mensah will be joining the cast as the Chancellor for the Authority, named Kibwe.

Look familiar? He is currently playing Doctore on ‘Spartacus: Vengeance’. Previously, he has played the Messenger in ‘300’, and the Horse Clan Leader in ‘Avatar’. He’s no stranger to television screens, playing in ‘Star Trek: Enterprise’, ‘Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles’ and ‘Witchblade’.

The Chancellor for the Authority is not a character familiar with the books. While ‘True Blood’ has strayed from the novels a long time ago, it has been said that there is more focus on the vampires this season, even with bringing Claude into the picture. It should be interesting to see how this season goes, especially after last season’s finale with Bill and Eric.

How do you feel about the new addition to the cast?
