With the release of True Blood: the Final Season and the Complete Seasons 1-7 Box Set on November 10th in Britain, a bloody Bill Compton has been spotted roving London. He may not be nearly as handsome as our beloved Bill, but it’s cool to see the powers-to-be having some fun and choosing Billith to represent True Blood.
As was previously reported, Stephen Moyer, Kristin Bauer van Straten, and Tara Buck will all be present at Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo. The True Blood panel will take the stage on Saturday at 2:00 p.m.

According to IMDB and Empire Magazine, Steve has been cast in an untitled movie that has already started filming. Though it still hasn’t received a title, it has some well known names attached to it. Besides Steve, the cast includes Will Smith, Alec Baldwin and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
The film will take a look at how American football players suffer from major head injuries and life-long debilitating problems as a result of repeated concussions and the efforts by the National Football League to deny it.
As of now, there’s no information on what role Steve will be playing or when the film might arrive, but at least we know we have a couple of future projects of Steve’s to look forward to.
‘Parkland’ director Peter Landesman is directing the film, which adapts Jeanne Marie Laskas’ GQ article Game Brain. The piece followed Dr. Bennet Omalu (Smith in the film), a forensic neuropathologist who made the crucial first discovery of concussive head trauma in an NFL player and strove to bring awareness to the general public. Described as a sports take on ‘The Insider’ – putting a human face on a story about a thorny issue and the commercial interests involved in making sure the news doesn’t spread too far – it also boasts the likes of Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alec Baldwin, David Morse, Stephen Moyer and Albert Brooks.
Stephen Moyer, Kristin Bauer van Straten, and Tara Buck are slated to appear at Comikaze in Los Angeles on November 1st. They’re set to appear on the Hot Topic Main Stage.

It must be raining, ‘cuz it sure does feel likes it’s pouring Stephen Moyer. All it takes is a long dry spell to make 2 photos of Steve in 2 days feel like an abundance of hotness!
This photo was shared by Dan Mor , who plays Sillaeus in Killing Jesus. Dan surely knows his adjectives, as he described Steve as ‘great’, but maybe next time he can add ‘drool worthy’, ‘Mr. Sexy’, or even something as simple as ‘HOT!’
Thank you, Dan Mor for sharing your photo on Instagram.
Looks like Twitter is a fangirls best friends these days. Yesterday, we had camels. Today, we have Steve!
Aneurin Barnard, a Welsh actor who is playing James in Killing Jesus, tweeted this photo of Steve and himself drinking some Moroccan tea and … hopefully enjoying it.
And one more tweet to share, this time it’s from Steve.
Hopefully, the left knee cap is Steve’s bad knee, since it might be quite a while before Steve gets a comfy pillow without trading for it. I’m sure Steve’s got a list of things that the Missus will have waiting for him upon his return to Venice.
We’ve been hoping Steve would share some photos from the set of Killing Jesus, but I’m sure like you all, we hoped he would be in them. So far, it’s not the case, though Steve did share some pictures on FaceBook and Instagram that made us chuckle.
As we’ve said in the past, beggars can’t be choosers.
Everyone in Stevedom is aware that he’s jetted off to Morocco to portray Pontius Pilate in the upcoming film, Killing Jesus. It’s been relatively quiet since Steve tweeted updates about his travel adventures to the Sahara, but Eoin Macken (Antipas) shared this photo on his Instagram yesterday. Does the guy behind him look familiar?
Simply Moyer received our invitation to the 17th Annual Friends of CLARE Tribute Dinner, which will be held on November 13th in Santa Monica, CA. The event remains a True Blood affair, as Joe Manganiello is slated to receive the Friends of CLARE Tribute Award, an award that was presented to Stephen Moyer in 2010. We’re not sure if Steve will be back from Morocco in time to attend the dinner, but he is an event co-chair, and also sits on the CLARE Board of Directors.
Proceeds from this event will benefit CLARE’s mission of providing effective and compassionate treatment and recovery services for alcoholism and substance abuse to individuals, families, and the community.
We’re one step closer to a new project with Stephen Moyer. Last week we learned he had been cast as Pontius Pilate in a new Bill O’Reilly mini series, Killing Jesus. Today, Steve is on his way to start filming this Nat Geo adventure in Morocco. One step closer …
Steve has arrived in Morocco:
All fans in Stevedom are aware that today, October 11th, marks Steve’s 45th birthday. Once again, we’ve decided to celebrate the special event with a collage commemorating twelve months of Steve.
All in all, it’s been a pretty extraordinary year for Steve, from the birth of CASM Film’s first feature, Free Ride, to the death of True Blood and our beloved Bill Compton. In between, Steve entertained millions with his captivating portrayal of Captain Georg von Trapp in The Sound of Music, lived out a boyhood fantasy when he represented Team England in Soccer Aid at Old Trafford Stadium, jumped into the social media platform when he joined Twitter, Instagram, & Facebook, and launched his own iTunes App, Weev. Don’t think anyone could blame him and the missus for taking some well deserved R&R in the months leading up to his 45th.
We at Simply Moyer wish Steve a fantastic birthday and a year filled with health, love, and happiness.
Anna Paquin has issued a special request! She’d like people to wish her delectable husband, Stephen Moyer, a Happy Birthday! All you’ve got to do is download Weev onto your iPhone to add your birthday message to Steve. If you haven’t downloaded Weev already, just click on Anna’s picture above! What are you waiting for? Time to join the Weev conversation!
From Bill Compton to Pontius Pilate!
Hallelujah! News of Steve’s first role, post Bill Compton, has just been released. He’ll be among an all-star cast in National Geographic Channel’s TV movie, “Killing Jesus”. In this huge endeavor, Steve will be playing Pontius Pilote, the Roman governor who ordered Jesus’ crucifixion.
Based on the best-selling book by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, the film chronicles the life of Jesus of Nazareth through the retelling of the political, social and historical conflicts during the Roman Empire that ultimately led to his death.
Starring with Steve will be Kelsey Grammar, John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings), Emmanuelle Chriqui (Entourage) and Haaz Sleiman (The Visitor) playing Jesus.
The film “Killing Jesus” will break new ground in chronicling the life of the most famous human being who ever lived,” said O’Reilly, who also serves as an executive producer. “The superb cast and script reflect much thought and research. Viewers are in for something very different and very special.
Killing Jesus will premiere globally on National Geographic Channel in 2015 in 171 countries and 45 languages, and in Spanish on Nat Geo Mundo. The movie hails from the Emmy-nominated team behind Killing Kennedy, including O’Reilly, Scott Free Productions’ Ridley Scott, David Zucker, Mary Lisio and Teri Weinberg. Heather Moran and Charlie Parsons will exec produce for NGC.
Filming begins this autumn.
This is the most awesome of tattoos! @tiffys1983 has made her body a canvas for Bill Compton. The tattoo of this heroic vampire was finished the other day and she has since shared the photo on her Twitter account and also tweeted it to Steve.
I expect quite a few ladies are going to be mobbing you in the future, @tiffy1983. Just keep reminding them … Bill is Mine!
How fun is this? Teespring is offering limited edition hoodies, tanks and t-shirts with It’s A Moyer Thing printed on the front of your choice of item. They come in multiple colors and styles, but you don’t have much time left to order if you want Moyer on your chest. And no worries, we WOULD understand if you do.
Thanks to Cerise for sharing her find.
