"When Alan Ball's pulpy, sexy vampire mystery series True Blood premiered on HBO, viewers found themselves in the company of a gay character the likes of which they hadn't seen before: Lafayette Reynolds, a gender-bender Jack-of-all-trades just as likely to win a barfight as he is to borrow your lip gloss." -Interview with Nelsan Ellis from "True Blood"

Borrow my lip gloss? Oh, any day! Look at those welcoming lips...sigh...
I much prefer Alan Ball's version of Lafayette than Charlaine Harris book version. Mostly because we get to see him on screen often and he has more than a few lines...lets just hope he survives season 1! Oh, did I mention he is cute? There is nothing more attractive than a man who can wear gold pants and still kick some racist punk ass when needed. True Blood is just full of yummy men!
