True BloodActor Denis O’Hare has taken a slight swipe at Twilight; the hugely success (with teen girls) film franchise starring Robert Pattitinson. O’Hare is no stranger to the world of vampires having played the baddie gay vampire Russell Edgington, the Vampire King of Mississippi, in the third season of True Blood.


Real vampires don’t sparkle, they don’t glisten, they can’t go out in the day and they definitely aren’t celibate! Come on!” – Denis O’Hare speaking to


However, the actor did reveal he also gets crazy requests from vampire fans.


“People ask me to bite them,. It happens a lot. In my rough neighborhood of Fort Greene in Brooklyn, I was inside a Bravo across the street from me and this big Dominican guy who was working there was like, ‘Hey man, can you bite me?’ And I’m like, ‘You’re not going to beat me up afterwards?’ But I did it, and we took a picture!” – Denis O’Hare speaking to


The actor recently revealed he could return to True Blood in the future. Last year Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder also had a slight dig at Twilight claiming his series would beat the vampires of the film franchise in a fight.
