“True Blood” isn’t even off the air yet, but cast members of the HBO supernatural drama are already booking new gigs. Deborah Ann Woll, who plays vamp Jessica Hamby on the show, will join the cast of Netflix’s “Daredevil” show in the role of Karen Page. It’s the lead female part on the show, since Karen Page is Matt Murdock/Daredevil’s longest running love interest. She’ll be joining Charlie Cox (“Stardust,” “Boardwalk Empire”) who will be playing the superhero. In the comic, Page is Murdock’s secretary, and is introduced in the very first issue. No word on whether she’ll be in the same role in the show.

Also starring in the upcoming show are Vincent D’Onofrio as villain The Kingpin and Rosario Dawson in an as yet unnamed part that will probably be cool because Rosario Dawson is cool.

There’s only one problem: Will Woll have to dye her trademark red hair? Page is drawn as blonde in the comic. Of course, Murdock himself is supposed to have bright red hair, so maybe they can just switch.
