We recently asked Tom Wisdom fans what they would like to see him do next. There were plenty of responses and there seemed to be a similar interest among them. One being of the cold, pale, and dead sort that you would find on the hit HBO series, True Blood.
Tom isn’t a household name; most would remember him when described as the Captain’s young son that got his head chopped off in the 2007 blockbuster, 300. That could be to Tom’s advantage, though. Alan Ball, the creator of True Blood, has stated in previous interviews that they tend to shy away from casting A-list actors. The reason being? So viewers of the show see the characters, not who’s playing them. Smart move Mr. Ball.
Standing in at 6’3″ with dark hair, blue eyes, and light skin, one fan explained why Tom would be perfect for the show: “He would be good at the ‘stillness’; the quiet menace of a vampire. It would be the perfect part. He could look a lot like Midnight Mark — leather trousers, open shirt, pale skin, sunglasses, and the wild hair. And he could also be a ruthless killer and kick-ass fighter! Beauty and blood, all rolled into one incredibly sexy guy!”
Does Tom fit the description of a particular vamp from the Southern Vampire Mysteries? Not as of right now, but the writers of the show do not follow the books completely. They come up with new story lines and new characters so that the show isn’t just based on Sookie’s point of view.
Another recommendation by fans was for Tom to play the part of Jared in the upcoming film, The Host – based on the book with the same title written by Stephenie Meyer, who also penned the Twilight Saga. Regardless of what Tom does next, fans are hoping to see him in something very soon!
