Also, in the accompanying article, creator Alan Ball dissed Twilight indirectly:
"To me, vampires are sex. I don't get a vampire story about abstinence. I'm 53. I don't care about high school students. I find them irritating and uninformed."
Gotta love it.
Our only complaints about the cover and photo spread would be...
a. You can't see Alexander Skarsgård's butt.
b. We love Alexander Skarsgård, Anna Paquin, and Stephen Moyer... but there are so many other hot hot hot hot hot members of the cast that we also would've loved to have seen naked on the cover of a magazine (or at least inside the magazine). Such as...
Joe Manganiello, Kevin Alejandro, Nelsan Ellis, Sam Trammell, Rutina Wesley, Deborah Ann Woll, Kristin Bauer, and Evan Rachel Wood (to name just a few)
One can only hope for the future.
(Note, we didn't include Ryan Kwanten, the hottie who plays Jason... not because we don't think he's naked-magazine-cover worthy but because he so rarely wears clothing on the show that at this point it's sort of unnecessary at this point.)
