Marshall AllmanMaybe someone is headed to prison on the upcoming third season of 'True Blood.' Why else would the show cast two alumnus from 'Prison Break?'

First up is Marshall Allman, who didn't always have as much to do as we would have liked in the role of Lincoln Burrows' son, L.J. On a show known for over-the-top characters and plot lines, Allman's take as L.J. always felt authentic with emotion and conviction.

Sounds like a perfect fit for the world of vampires and other things that go bump in the night. Allman is on tap to play shape-shifter Sam's younger sibling Tommy, according to the Ausiello Files.Marshall AllmanMaybe someone is headed to prison on the upcoming third season of 'True Blood.'

Shannon LucioAlso tapped to join the cast of is Shannon Lucio, who played Trishanne, a GATE receptionist/undercover agent, on 'Prison Break.' But fans might know her better as Lindsay Gardner from 'The O.C.' or even her turn this season on 'Grey's Anatomy' as Amanda.

Even though we've already seen Bill's (Stephen Moyer) wife, Caroline, in a flashback, Lucio has been cast in the role, with a much meatier arc planned. In other words, we can look forward to more flashbacks to Bill's human life before he was turned into a vampire during the Civil War era.

'True Blood is fresh off a season of staggering numbers for HBO. As many as 5.3 million viewers tuned in last season, making it the network's most-watched show since 'The Sopranos.'
