Confession: There is nothing I love more than a great bromance. Whether between real-life guy friends, two fun characters on TV or the actors who play them. There's just something adorably warm and fuzzy about affection shared and expressed between two dudes.
The men in the "True Blood" cast are especially bromantic, and it's awesome. (My favorite example: That scene in the season three finale, when Eric says to Alcide and Bill: "If you two are done eye-f---ing each other, can we go?") In addition to Alexander Skarsgård recently hinting at more Bill-Eric moments, MTV News had a chance encounter with Stephen Moyer, who's equally enthused about the idea.
Before we approached Stephen with the bromance angle, however, we wondered if he'd had a chance to read the season five scripts yet, which we knew were delivered to the cast members recently.
"How did you hear that?" a suspicious Stephen asked when we chatted with him at TeenNick's HALO Awards. (We're MTV, yo. We've got people.) "Yes we did [get them]. I haven’t read it yet. I haven’t had a moment to. It’s been busy the last few weeks and days, so I haven’t had a chance," he admitted. "I was talking about it today, I really must. Anna [Paquin] hasn’t read it either."
Now onto the pressing question: Will we see more of the bromance between Bill and Eric develop next season?
"My missus got to have a go with him last year, so I think it’s my turn," Stephen said with a smile. "I know [Alex] is very excited about that."
Ah, so if Bill and Eric "have a go," what does he think about Joe Manganiello's hope for a Sookie-Alcide hook-up?
"Everybody jump on!" he joked.
