nathan parsons the originals bunheads abcfamily 'The Originals': Nathan Parsons sinks teeth into juicy recurring roleGet ready for one more werewolf in New Orleans: Zap2it has exclusively learned that actor Nathan Parsons has signed on for a juicy recurring role on The CW’s “The Originals.”

Parsons (“Bunheads,” “General Hospital”) will debut in episode 13 (Feb. 4) as Jackson, one of Haley’s werewolf acquaintances. He has the underlying ruggedness of a werewolf raised in the Bayou, but he’s magnetic, smart and strong-willed — the natural trusted leader of his pack.

Could he cause some friction in the budding Haley/Elijah relationship?

Parsons starred on “General Hospital” for three years, and was most recently seen as Sasha’s sexy older crush in the second half of the late, lamented ABC Family series “Bunheads.” He was also just cast as the new James on the final season of HBO’s “True Blood.”

“The Originals” airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
