When it was first announced that actor Luke Grimes had left the cast of "True Blood," it was allegedly over creative differences.

Schneider was not immediately available for further comment when contacted by The Huffington Post.

But a long view of the series shows that it began as a frequently laughable exercise in insanity and has never wavered from that mission, so those claiming a drop-off in quality are very much misremembering its origins.
