True Blood's Deborah Ann Woll Joins Zac Efron In Are We Officially Dating
Given the popularity of her character on True Blood, it's a wonder Deborah Ann Woll's feature career hasn't exploded in recent years. She's played a few movie roles and has some in the works, and she's done some guest-starring roles on other TV shows, but most probably associate her best as the kind-hearted but sometimes-troublemaking baby vampire Jessica on the HBO drama series. As mentioned, she does have a number of upcoming feature projects, which now include Are We Officially Dating?
Earlier this month, we shared word that Miles Teller was joining Zac Efron in Tom Gormican's romantic comedy Are We Officially Dating?. The film is based off a Black List script and follows three friends in New York who are each on the verge of falling in love when they make a pact to remain single. Deadline reported this week that Deborah Ann Woll is set to play the ex-wife to one of the trio.
No additional specifics on the nature of her role or how big a part it is were mentioned, but this is certainly a great bit of casting news. True Blood may fall into the drama category, as a vampire-series drenched in blood and melodrama, but Woll has proven her ability to handle humor well with her character Jessica. A role like this could really help her show off her sense of humor even more, especially if she isn't the friendliest ex-wife.
Among her feature credits, Woll appeared in Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris' Ruby Sparks and is set to appear in Highland Park, Meet Me in Montenegro and Rosaline, not to mention the sixth season of True Blood, which is set to air next year on HBO.
