Deborah Ann Woll, ‘True Blood’
You know her as: Jessica Hamby
Why we like her: As the freshman vamp sired by Bill Compton, she is discovering her new life with as much vigor as we imagine we would. We always get a glimpse at adults turned into bloodsuckers, but as a teen who hasn’t really lived, Jessica breathes new life into a familiar genre in such a way you don’t know what she’ll do next. She’s almost as endearing as a cute baby vampire … almost.
Where else you’ve seen her: “The Mentalist,” “CSI,” and “Law and Order: SVU”

Woody Allen, The Apocalypse and Three Other Ways To Get A Woman In Bed occupies an important place in the long established “teen comedy meets apocalyptic thriller” genre. The film is centered around Ned, a high-school student with two obsessions: watching Woody Allen movies and getting play from girls. Ned battles his social ineptitude, the challenges of high-school relationships, and of course, impending nuclear disaster on his way to get a girl into bed. Starring Chris Speziale, Deborah Ann Woll, and Eileen Trilli. Produced in 2006. Directed by Daniel Schloss & Charlie Fried
Flying Centipede Productions has posted in their youtube account the entire movie, divided into 13 segments. Thanks Daniel and Charlie for making it available.

Loving True Blood in Dallas bring us with more hints from Alan Ball, during the Virginia Film Festival. You can read the whole stuff here.
OK, here’s a quick rundown of some things Alan Ball mentioned while reviewing ep. 4, Shake and Fingerpop. The cellphone that Jessica glamours from the limo driver is going to figure in season 3. Alan said to remember it. The cool travel coffins that Bill and Jessica traveled in are really for snowboards.
Jessica and Hoyt will have competing love interests. According to Alan it doesn’t look good for them to be together.
