"True Blood" is gearing up for the finale of its fourth season Sunday night, and actor Nelsan Ellis, who plays flamboyant, forthright medium Lafayette Reynolds, promises that it will be one to remember -- and not just in terms of momentous events for his character and his partner Jesus, played by Kevin Alejandro.
"The finale turns Bon Temps upside down," the actor said, speaking recently by phone from New York, where he was shooting a feature film tentatively titled "Gods Behaving Badly." "Lafayette and Jesus are directly in the middle of it, and it doesn't end well. No finale in the history of 'True Blood' has been worse than this one in terms of the cliffhangers.
