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.

Anna to the Rescue As Finola Hughes Returns To General Hospital

If you caught the end of Monday’s episode of General Hospital, just as Cassandra Pierce (Jessica Tuck) was ramping up her efforts to threaten Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez) on the pier, she is stopped in her tracks by none other than Anna Devane!  And with that, it signals the return of all-time GH favorite and powerhouse actress, Finola Hughes, who has been off the ABC daytime drama series for an extended period of time.

With the return of the mighty Hughes comes some intriguing romantic storypoints in that: the man who proposed to Anna before she left Port Charles, Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton), has found out that he is a father to Hayden’s (Rebecca Budig) child.  Previously, he thought the child had died, but Hayden lied and thus the two have moved from icy towards each other, to growing closer.

What will happen when Anna finds out what has gone in Port Charles while she was away?

ABC and GH released this week’s promo which teases a moment where Anna announces she has returned while Finn and Hayden are together.  You can check that out below.

Now that Finola is back, what are your hopes for Anna in story? Finding the bad guys and finding love with Finn, or will her story take another twist and turn that no one saw coming? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

General Hospital Receives Honor From Ruderman Family Foundation

General Hospital was one of five television shows that has been named and honored by the Ruderman Family Foundation for their accurate depictions of people with disabilities.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the soap received the recognition for the casting of Maysoon Zayid who portrayed Shilohs’s (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) lawyer, Zahra Amir.

Zayid is an actress and disabilities advocate living with cerebral palsy. In addition, Maysoon is also one of America’s first Muslim women comedians.  Zayid said landing on GH was a “lifelong dream,” after finding it difficult to land roles due to her disability.

Along with GH, the foundation’s seal of authentic representation went to: Netflix’s Tales of the City and Raising Dion, and BBC/HBO’s Years and Years and Audience’s Loudermilk, great company for the ABC daytime drama series to be included with.

Jay Ruderman, president of the Ruderman Family Foundation expressed in a statement. “By giving credit where credit is due in Hollywood, we hope to inspire a broader, longer-term, industry-wide sea change when it comes to authentically casting actors of all abilities.”

In addition, Frank Valentini, executive producer of General Hospital stated: “Our goal has always been to provide stories that are authentic and relatable for our viewers. Having the opportunity to welcome Maysoon Zayid onto the show was exciting for us. She is an incredible talent and was a perfect fit to guest-star as Zahra Amir. It takes all kinds of people to tell a story; especially those that are rich and entertaining enough to resonate with our audience.”
