Professor Kannell is a minor character on the HBO original series True Blood. Played by American guest starring actor David Dean Bottrell, Professor Kannell is a college professor who aids Sookie Stackhouse with identifying a document.

Professor Kannell is a college professor, teaching at a university located outside of the town of Bon Temps, Louisiana.
Sookie and Jason visit Kannell for help identifying a document they discover under the floorboards of their home. He says that it is not in any ancient language, noting that the symbols are all unique and therefore unlikely to represent letters. ("Gone, Gone, Gone")
