In some of the greatest casting news I’ve heard in a long time, True Blood has finally realized the potential of Kristen Bauer. As the slightly villainous and oh so devious Pam, Bauer steals every seen she’s in. While most of this past season’s True Blood love was directed toward Alexander Skarsgard’s Eric (and rightly so), it’s reassuring to hear that the big wigs also appreciate the very under appreciated Pam

Starting this season Bauer moves to series regular status. More screen time means more laughs. Nice move.
