The Originals returned to its Tuesday night timeslot this week with one of its best episodes to date, Season 1, Episode 10 (“The Casket Girls”). However, it looks like a few fang fans missed the memo. The ratings for the winter premiere were down slightly from Episode 9, with a 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demo. But don’t worry, Originals fans. It’s still one of the most highly rated shows on the CW.

'The Originals' exclusive: Nathan Parsons sinks teeth into juicy recurring role

Get 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.... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/the-originals-nathan-parsons-sinks-teeth-into-juicy-recurring-role.html

Even Hayley would make a likely choice, since she has a past... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/6SwCtCT_WLg/2014-01-15-spoilers-marcel-heading-mystic-falls
