Look out, New Orleans. There’s a sexy werewolf heading to town.

Bunheads stud Nathan Parsons is making his debut on this week’s episode of The OriginalsSeason 1, Episode 13 (“Crescent City”). Nathan will be playing Jackson, one of Hayley’s (Phoebe Tonkin) werewolf acquaintances. Word in the Quarter has it that Jackson has the ruggedness of a Bayou dude but is equally magnetic and smart — making him a well-balanced leader.

While his past acting credits include Bunheads and General Hospital, it seems Nathan is taking a turn for the supernatural because he’ll also be starring as the new James in the final season of True Blood. Fangtastic, right?

We’re slightly worried that the addition of this handsome creature may just put a damper on all of our Halijah feels, as the two are currently at odds over Hayley not being completely truthful with Elijah (Daniel Gillies) about her part in giving Sophie (Daniella Pineda) the location of Celeste’s bones.

In this week’s episode, Hayley throws a party for her furry clan, but festivities are interrupted when uninvited guests arrive. Meanwhile, Father Kieran and Cami will be having their own drama while St. Anne’s church is poised to make its grand re-opening. And leave it to Klaus to throw some danger into the episode by doing something that has “dangerous repercussions that affect everyone involved.” Sounds about right!

Are you glad they’re introducing a new werewolf into the mix? Do you hope he hits it off with Hayley? Hit the comments and let us know!
