I am here in Beverly Hills. I’m ready for my closeup, Mr. DeMille! (That’s from “Sunset Boulevard,” for you younger readers.) Actually, I’m here to do some meetings and to do a cameo for “True Blood.” It’s much cooler here than it is at home, to my surprise.

Yes, season two. I think this’ll be a bar scene. Yes, there’s a picture of Alan and me behind the bar. There was also a picture of my daughter’s softball team on one wall for much of season one, though it’s down now. I figured Sam would support the local teams.

It was fun. It was also a learning experience. This scene takes place in daytime, so none of the vamps were there, and Anna didn’t have a line in the scene, either. But I got to visit with Rutina (Tara), Sam (Sam!), Terry (Todd Lowe), and Arlene (Carrie Preston). It was good to run into Chris Bauer (Andy) when I went outside to get some air, and while I was eating supper at the Farmer’s Market, I ran into the late great Denise Rattray (Karina Logue).
