A few weeks ago we were surprised to learn that relatively recent 'True Blood' addition Luke Grimes would depart the series in advance of reprising his series regular role as Jessica's vampire paramour, James. Despite the commotion, however, a replacement has been found. 'Bunheads' alum Nathan Parsons will step in for the role of James, but what might have caused Grimes to exit the role?
True Blood' season 6 naturally thinned the herd a bit, moving into a seventh and final run that reset the focus on smaller Bon Temps vampire stories, though it seems the cast has suffered an unexpected loss. Late season 6 arrival Luke Grimes had his suave vampire character James upgraded to series regular for the final year, but will now be recast.
Prior seasons of HBO's 'True Blood' have shifted the supernatural focus to everything from werewolves to witches, but like its previous year 'True Blood' season 6 seems to belong to the vampire. In addition to the recent casting of 'House's Karolina Wydra, 'Brothers & Sisters' star Luke Grimes has joined the supernatural soap's sixth season as yet another beguiling vampire, but what does the latest bloodsucker have to do with The Doors frontman Jim Morrison?
