True Blood’s Chris Bauer is Headed Back to Theater: “I’ve told my children to think of this as though I’m going for a life-saving operation”

Chris Bauer is ready to take some time away from fighting vampires on HBO’s True Blood

The actor, who plays Sheriff Andy Bellefleur, will be appearing in a New York stage production of What Rhymes with America starting in December.

“I’ve told my children to think of this as though I’m going for a life-saving operation,” Bauer told Timesleader.com.  “The opportunity to work on a play from the ground up in my favorite theater with all new people, makes me feel like there’s a real potential for reinvigoration.”

Since Bauer hasn’t done theater since acting in 2010 in David Mamet’s Romance, the actor noted that he has to work on getting back into the rigors of doing stage work.  “There’s a level of fitness that’s required to give an audience what they deserve.  You just do not get the strength in those muscles on television.”
