We thought Ryan Kwanten was rather distracting until we spied the head on Rutger Hauer when he made his on-set debut with the cast of True Blood yesterday. The screen veteran and Blade Runner star was looking rather, err, different.

Hauer's sporting a large white wig as he joins the cast of HBO's hit vampire drama, playing a sinister character called Macklyn who has a connection to Sookie and Jason Stackhouse. Some siblings have all the luck eh?

The 68-year-old is probably best known for playing Roy Batty in Blade Runner, John Ryder in The Hitcher and Earle in Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins. He also starred as the huntsman in the hit TV series The 10th Kingdom. Now there's a blast from the telly past if ever we had one.

We're not quite sure when we'll Hauer's True Blood scenes on Irish screens just yet, so in the meantime, enjoy the snaps. And try not to spend too much time staring at Ryan Kwanten: We know he'll always be your beloved Vinny from Home and Away, but there's work to be done!
