Lafayette's Boyfriend on 'True Blood' Found


Kevin Alejandro would be the hot gay Latino who got involved in a relationship with the Merlotte's cook in season 3.

One more name is tossed into the "True Blood" bowl as one of the new characters in season 3. The casting directors have been looking for an actor to play a hot gay Latino named Jesus Velasquez and they have apparently found a match in Kevin Alejandro.

The 33-year-old actor will be a major character in the new season because Jesus is slated to be Lafayette's new love interest. Jesus is to take care of Ruby Jean Reynolds aka Lafayette's mother, who is played by award-winning actress Alfre Woodward, and becomes entangled in a relationship with him. No clue yet when he would start popping up on the show but THR said he would appear in almost every episode of the season.

Alejandro is one of the regulars on "Southland". The cop drama was canceled by NBC but had been picked up by TNT for a re-rerun of season 1 starting January 12. The rating will then determine whether TNT will extend it beyond the 6 episodes of season 2 which have been in production. It is confirmed that Alejandro would be able to juggle between the two even though "Southland" gets the pick-up.

"True Blood" had begun the third season production before Christmas with the premiere target of June. News is still awaiting for the casting of bikers Louie, Gus and Jimmy, Alcide's girlfriend Debbie Pelt, NYU grads for Jason's threesome partners, elderly woman named Olivia and African American couple Betty and Marvin.
