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!

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.

I didn’t realize actors could just quit because they don’t like the direction their story takes.

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
