Robert Patrick is sitting pretty. Just weeks after the cancellation of ABC’s submarine drama, the Last Resort co-star has been snapped up as series regular on HBO’s True Blood. Patrick, who appeared in a three episode arc during the show’s fifth season, will return to play Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) father.

Patrick, who is known for his role as the unstoppable mech in Terminator 2: Judgement Day, will also appear in Identity Thief, Gangster Squad and Lovelace in 2013.

True Blood returns to screens in Summer 2013.
