True Blood’s Lafayette recognized by Rolling Stone!

Our favorite Short-Order Cook/drug-dealer Lafayette (played by Nelsan Ellis) has been recognized by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the 15 Most Groundbreaking Gay Roles on Television.  ***WARNING: Book 2 spoiler in the text below!***

Here’s what RS had to say about him…

Thanks to creator Alan Ball’s brilliant thinking, Bon Temps’ most flashy short-order cook/V dealer is alive and well instead of dead in the back of Andy Bellefleur’s car (his character’s fate in Book Two of the Sookie Stackhouse novels). Although Lafayette embodies certain gay stereotypes (eyeliner, lipstick, jewelry, he prefers the ladies’ room – “I is gorgeous”), he is easily one of the most trustworthy characters in a world filled with devious vampires, werewolves, maenads, shape-shifters and, most recently, a witch – the latter of whom just happens to be Lafayette’s new boyfriend. Hookah, please!

Usually I’m not a happy camper when a tv series alters the flow of a novel series with major character or plot changes, but in the case of True Blood (based on the Sookie Stackhouse/Southern Vampire Chronicles by Charlaine Harris) I couldn’t be happier about the Lafayette extended-storylines.  He’s one of the few characters I actually like better in the tv series than in the books!  Way to go Nelsan!  Keep up the awesome.  *grin*

PS:  Kurt & Blaine from Glee were also recognized!  LOVE Glee!!!
