He’s best known for his work on “General Hospital,” and now Nathan Parsons is about to become part of one of the hottest shows on premium cable.

The “Teeth” actor has been cast in the role of James (previously played by Luke Grimes) for the forthcoming seventh (and final) season of “True Blood.”

Last year, HBO announced that the fan favorite series, starring Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard, would come to a close following the next round.

Programming president Michael Lombardo explained, "True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO. Alan Ball took the books by Charlaine Harris, assembled a brilliant cast led by the magnificent Anna Paquin in the role of Sookie Stackhouse, and crafted a show that has taken its many devoted fans on an unforgettable journey.”
