True Blood's Michael McMillian: Steve Newlin Is 'General Patton In Armageddon'

We recently caught up with Michael McMillian at WonderCon and chatted with him both about True Blood-- on which he plays anti-vampire church leader Steve Newlin -- and his comic book writing for IDW and Archaia. McMillian describes Newlin as seeing himself as "General Patton in Armageddon." He also drew parallels between what is going on with the character and his Fellowship of the Sun and current events:

"This character really speaks to the world that we live in today, where many different groups of people are using hate as a justifiable method to fulfill their agendas...that it's okay in certain religions and cultures to hate someone for being different than you. That's something I find absolutely horrifying and amazing about the times we are living in right now."
