Warning: Contains some spoilers for the end of season 3. The BBC released some promo pics for the upcoming season of "Being Human." If you've been watching the series, you know that Mitchell is gone and Aiden Turner has left the show. Now a new vampire named Hal is moving in, played by Damien Molony.

"I'm actually playing an English vampire," said Molony. "Very, very posh. Very upper class. A stiff-upper-lipped Brit, which is a bit of a push for me accent, but it makes it a lot more fun. I promise you, no! No, no, no—Hal's not Mitchell 2. There's a lot of backstory to play with, and I assure you he's very, very different."

Do you think he'll be enough to replace Mitchell? "Being Human" returns in the U.K. later this month.

In a post on her facebook page, Anne Rice had some choice words about Stephenie Meyer's portrayal of vampires.

"Lestat and Louie feel sorry for vampires that sparkle in the sun. They would never hurt immortals who choose to spend eternity going to high school over and over again in a small town—anymore than they would hurt the physically disabled or the mentally challenged. My vampires possess gravitas. They can afford to be merciful."

As you can imagine, this pissed off a lot of twilight fans
