True Blood has taken a lot of left turns with its characters, killing them, turning them into vampires, even revealing that they're faeries!
Well, it turns out at least one cast member wasn't happy with the direction his character was going — and it was enough for him to quit! (Guess we should probably say SPOILER ALERT before we say anything more…)
Fans may have noticed that Luke Grimes, who played Jessica's cutey patootie boyfriend James, has been replaced for season 7 with hunky Aussie actor Nathan Parsons.
When Luke decided to leave the show late last year, HBO cited differences in "the creative direction of the character."
Well it turns out that "creative direction" was out of the closet door. James is apparently about to enter a gay relationship with Lafayette!
A source close to the HBO show says Luke was not happy about the homosexual storyline and said he wouldn't do any same-sex love scenes! And when the writers refused to back down, he left the show!
Luke's rep denies this accusation and maintains the actor's exit was all about scheduling. We don't know, the timing is awfully suspicious!
But it's true Luke is a busy bee, working on both Fifty Shades Of Grey and American Sniper.
But we have to ask; is working with Bradley Cooper the best way to stay away from a gay storyline?
We mean, come on, what guy hasn't thought about letting BCoop open his Silver Linings Playbook and do a little American Hustle? LOLz!
