Here is what appears to be a perfect fit for the perfect actor!  News this afternoon has none other than former General Hospital and Bunheads star Nathan Parsons (Ethan Lovett, GH) cast as the new James replacing Luke Grimes in the upcoming seventh season of the hit HBO vampire drama, True Blood!

TV Line broke the news that Parsons will take over the role from Grimes who asked to be released from his True Blood contract, because the actor did not like the creative direction of the character, which is brooding and soulful and a vampire!

A source close to James explained to TV Line that “Grimes initially joined the show because he wanted to work with (his Forever co-star) Deborah Ann Woll.  But when he started reading the scripts for Season 7, he was disappointed to learn that they were going in a completely different direction with James.”

True Blood has the character of James set to be the center of a romantic triangle when the series returns this summer!

What do you think of the casting of Nathan Parsons in the role of James on True Blood?  Weigh-in!

I don’t watch True Blood BUT I think that Nathan Parsons will excell in any role he is given. I miss him on GH. He has a heaping measure of charisma.

Guess he won’t be coming back to GH for awhile. Maybe they can get Jonathan Jackson to show up for a little bit once Nashville’s shooting ends.

Congratulations Nathan! I loved you on GH. In my opinion, you needed better air and story line on GH. I am sure you will be great on True Blood! I hope you will drop in on GH during your breaks.

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
