[LUCINDA] Chelsea Ricketts is cast. 
From Ausiello- Lafayette’s getting a new boyfriend — and a serious one at that. After spending much of Season 6 in the shadows, Nelsan Ellis will sashay back to the forefront in True Blood‘s final season — with a little help from Drake. Described as a cross between Jim Morrison and James Dean, this brooding and insanely good-looking vamp is a compassionate protector with a poet’s edge. The series-regular role calls for a twentysomething actor who is comfortable performing in simulated (and near-naked) sex scenes with another man.
Seems the description of this new BF for Lala is the same as the casting call for James/Wes from last season, then we see this at TVLine's news- True Blood‘s upcoming seventh and final season has already claimed its first victim. Luke Grimes, who joined the HBO hit in Season 6 as Jessica’s (Deborah Ann Woll) brooding, soulful vamp-camp lover James, has unexpectedly left the series.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Bunheads barkeep Nathan Parsons will step into the series-regular role previously played by Luke Grimes when the HBO hit returns with its seventh and final season this summer.
As we reported last month, Grimes asked to be released from his True Blood contract due to the creative direction of his brooding, soulful, vampire character.
“He initially joined the show because he wanted to work with [his Forever co-star] Deborah Ann Woll,” explained a source close to the actor. “But when he started reading the scripts for Season 7, he was disappointed to learn that they were going in a completely different direction with James.”
According to a True Blood insider, James will find himself at the center of a surprising love triangle in Season 7. 
EDIT: as I posted previously Jamsie sounds like Lala's new man, I don't think Jess will go for that and drama will follow or maybe she will be happy for them. 
Ausiello has some casting news 
[KEITH], a romantic vampire who moonlights (get it?) as a drummer in James’ (Luke Grimes/Nathan Parsons) band and who takes an instant liking to a certain grieving waitress. Riley Smith has been cast as Keith, he is a musician as well as actor so it makes sense. 
E3: "Fire in the Hole" July 6th, Written by Brian Buckner, Lee Rose is directing.Sookie (Anna Paquin) hatches a dangerous plan to take down the H-Vamps, even as Vince (Brett Rickaby) and his armed vigilantes pose an equally serious threat. Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) gets high with James (Nathan Parsons); Jason (Ryan Kwanten) eyes a family future with Violet (Karolina Wydra); Willa (Amelia Rose Blaire) is forced to find a new place to stay; Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) sheds her past. Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) offers Eric (Alexander SkarsgĂ„rd) a compelling reason to return to Louisiana – and be the vampire he used to be.” I guess this is where Dr Ludwig fits in. 
[PAM'S TREAT] -Ashley Barron cast.  
[PAM'S MALE TREAT] she gets a male treat as well, Paul Black is cast.
[VAMP] Lucas Di Medio cast.
[NAYAT]   Arthur Darbinyn is cast.
[YAKUZA]There will be lotsa Yakuza, Mike Moh, Jon Komp Shin so far (they put out a few casting calls)
[HIROKI]   Louis Ozawa Changchien is cast for E3 and E5.
E4: "Death is not the End," July 13. Directed by Gregg Feinberg, written by Daniel Kenneth
“In the aftermath of yet another bloodbath, Sam (Sam Trammell), Sookie and Jason find themselves the bearers of bad news in Bon Temps and beyond. Pam recalls the events that led her and Eric to Shreveport and Fangtasia. Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) get nourishment from unexpected sources. Following a new lead, Sookie enlists a band of vampires and humans to track down the H-Vamps.”
[VICTORIA] Christian Pitre is cast as a vamper.
[MRS GOODWIN] Stacie Greenwell cast
[DAVE] Bryan Dechart cast.
E5: "Return to Oz," "Lost Cause" July 20. Director Howard Deutch, written by Craig Chester
“Exhausted from her recent travails, Sookie finds herself the unwilling host of a festive mainstreaming party in Bon Temps. In search of an elusive adversary, Eric and Pam head to Dallas and attend a gala fundraiser. Andy (Chris Bauer) makes a life-changing decision; Jessica and James reach a crossroads; Bill loses himself in remembrance of human days
Sookie hosts a mainstreaming party; Eric and Pam head to Dallas for a fundraiser. (wheee!)
[AMBER CRABTREE] Sarah Newlin's Vamp sis Amber and parents make an appearance, the Crabtrees. Natalie Hall is cast
[SCIENTIST LOUIS BODEHOUSE] Brian Patrick Mulligan will return in E5, the scientist character was in "Dead Meat" last season at the VampCamp, didnt know he had our drunkie Jane's last name,hmmm. 
[MR GUS] Mr. Gus--he's a Japanese man who has fully embraced the "everything's bigger in Texas" way of living. The only thing bigger than his lavish, southern lifestyle? His quest for revenge, and trust us when we tell you, you do not want to cross him. (He might be involved in the making of True Blood, factory owner?) Eonline. Tvline's  Mr. Gus info- I can tell you that we’re getting what sounds like a new Big Bad in Mr. Gus. Though he’s a Japanese businessman, he’s apparently been so Americanized that he’d make J.R. Ewing seem Asian. (By which we mean he rocks a 10-gallon hat and speaks with a drawl.) Oh, and thanks to a business back-stab, he’s got a thirst for vengeance that’s described as “infinite.” So, while he’ll appear to be middle-aged, I have a hunch he’s immortal.
UPDATE: Will Yun Lee is Mr. Gus, via Deadline
The casting call below seems to fit in with Mr Gus's storyline (UPDATE) some many yakuza are being cast now, as well as the young Republicans)-
Jon Komp Shin ...Yakuza vs. Vampires ...shootin' the rest of the wk. — at The Lot StudiosBackground / Male / Asian / 20 - 45 / -Seeking Union/Non Union Japanese Yakuza with REAL military experience. Must be available April 10th and 11th. Must be fit.
