Vampires for Christmas?

With his HBO show True Blood on hiatus – and his August wedding to costar Anna Paquin still a fresh memory – Stephen Moyer plans to read the classic children’s tale Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! at Universal Studios Hollywood for a special Dec. 11 live performance, a rep for Universal tells PEOPLE.

The event will kick off the theme park’s 18-day Grinchmas celebration. Besides Moyer, who plays True Blood’s vampire Bill Compton, the reading will also feature the Grinch’s faithful dog Max, a heap of (through Hollywood magic) fresh snow and a “Whoville Whobilation” on the original sets where the 2000 live-action Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, starring Jim Carrey, was filmed.
