Jim Parrack’s “True Blood” character Hoyt Fortenberry might be a fangbanger, but it appears that the actor himself also likes to drink a little blood. Parrack revealed to “Vulture” recently that he likes to indulge in some blood sucking for real. After the opening night for “Of Mice And Men” on Broadway, Parrack mentioned the strange habit and now says that it’s no laughing matter.
He revealed, “I was being literal. I like the real deal.” When asked why, he said, “Um, I guess for the same reason some people want alcohol? Or for the same reason some people want, I don’t know…milk? Or Kool-Aid?”
It’s not something that he likes to drink on a regular basis, however, and said that he only partakes in the bodily fluid a couple of times a year. He explained, “It’s more like on an impulse. When you make me spell it out like this, it sounds strange, but I just want to be clear — that night, I was being literal. There was something about that night where I had that impulse. I guess the best way to put it is sometimes I just like the way it tastes.”
With regard to whose blood he’s sampling, he added, “I’m absolutely particular.”
