“When do you ever get to see Alan Ball and Chris Meloni doing body rolls?” Joe Manganiello asked me shortly after the True Blood panel. When but at Comic-Con? After the trailer shown at the panel seemed to indicate that Pam is making Tara into a stripper, Joe, of course, took the opportunity to demonstrate his Magic Mike skills. And mayhem ensued (as in show creator Ball stood on his chair to show his moves, and Meloni did his version later, too).
The crowd was already worked up about sexy supes after the Vampire Diaries panel, where the stars themselves brought up all sorts of naughty ideas. Zack Roerig suggested that Elena could use Matt’s blood, or his body, for comfort now that she’s a vampire, and then went on to say he thinks Matt should get it on with Caroline’s mom, Sheriff Forbes. Not to be outdone, Paul Wesley said Elijah and Stefan should hook up. Later on, he floated the theory that vampire sex lasts only half a second, so it could even be done in line at Starbucks. That lead Ian Somerhalder to quip that vampire sex had happened right there in front of the audience and we didn’t even know it. Oh, we’d know it, Ian. We were watching you veeerry closely.
My point is, it was sexy vampire (and werewolf and shifter) day at Comic-Con for me. Kate spent her time with the casts of Glee and Breaking Bad, then dropped in on Entertainment Weekly’s celebration. It was the kind of day we wish we had vampire speed or time-travelling skills, because we wanted to be all of the places at once. Not that being in just one place didn’t have its rewards. Stay tuned for stories from all of our interviews from Comic-Con 2012!
