Aside his role on Last Resort, Robert Patrick has been cast in a recurrent role as Jackson Hervaux, Alcide's father, on HBO's True Blood.
According to The Hollywood Reporter:
Patrick will first appear in a flashback episode that depicts Alcide (Joe Manganiello) and Debbie Pelt (Brit Morgan) as teenagers in the 1980s.
At the time, Jackson was said to be a "powerful, inspiring and heroic" guy, but in the present, he's given up on life. Jackson, as a way to repay his father's debt to Eric (Alexander Skarsgard), also stands as the reason that Alcide first agreed to help Sookie (Anna Paquin) search for Bill (Stephen Moyer) during Season 3.
He's scheduled to make his debut in Episode 9, slated to air Aug. 5 and titled "Everybody Wants to Rule the World."
