Actor Quits True Blood

Luke Grimes, who made his True Blood debut as dreamy vamp “James” last season, has left the show. As TVLine first reported, Grimes allegedly asked to be let out of his contract based on the new creative direction of his character.  As James should presumably still be romancing Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) when the vampire drama returns, the role will be recast. 

Cody Longo Cast as Nicholas Alamain on DAYS

Days of our Lives has cast Cody Longo as Carly’s (Crystal Chappell) son Nicholas Alamain, according to TV Guide.  The role was previously portrayed onscreen by Victor Webster and Erik von Detten. In April DAYS fans heard the Nicholas' voice, but the character did not appear onscreen at that time.

Longo appeared on the big screen in 2009’s Fame, while Brothers & Sisters’ fans may recognize him from flashbacks as a young Tommy Walker on ABC. He has also starred in multiple episodes of ABC Family’s Make It or Break It
