Check out who just got cast as True Blood's newest hottie vampire

There’s gonna be one more bloodsucker in Bon Temps as the HBO fantasy series returns later this year. The cast of True Blood just got a whole lot hotter.

Actor Riley Smith (90210, Beauty and the Beast) is set to join the cast on True Blood’s upcoming seventh and final season as Keith, whom Deadline describes as “a sexy, rock ‘n’ roll vampire with a romantic side.”

*Spoilers ahead*

Keith will be a drummer in James’ (Nathan Parson) band and will become smitten by freshly widowed Arlene (Carrie Preston) on first sight. Ooh la la! Whether Arlene will return the hot vamp’s affections will remain to be seen.

Here's the new guy:

Not bad, not bad at all. Plus, no sparkles, so, WIN.

There’s no date yet for the return of the bloodsucking hit HBO series, but it should air soon after Game of Thrones finishes its fourth-season run in the early summer.

Are you guys excited to see Arlene get a new squeeze? Even one of the undead kind?
