Hoyt Fortenberry is a rare breed - a genuinely nice guy. It's easy to seem kind and to give the appearance of caring, but in Hoyt's case he really means it. Sookie could testify to this, having read the minds of almost everyone in Bon Temps.
Jim Parrack as Hoyt
But Hoyt would never dream of putting his friend in a bad light on purpose, of course.
Unlike Jason, Hoyt's very shy when it comes to women. It might have something to do with his domineering mother Maxine, one of the biggest, nosiest gossips in Bon Temps. He still lives with her, which probably doesn't do much for his love life.
Hoyt is played by Jim Parrack.
