This show just knows how to cast… que chulo.
Meet Joseph Morgan, the man behind the most feared Vampire to walks the streets of Mystic Falls since Katherine strolled into town. That’s right, he’s our Klaus and I’m very happy about that.
Mr. Morgan hails from Wales, U.K. and you may have seen him in Hex and other British TV shows as well as Master and Commander.
Are you happy with the casting?
Collider recently sat down with The Vampire Diaries Executive Producer, Kevin Williamson. Here’s a little of what he had to say …
Question: How far along are you in the writing for the rest of this season?
KEVIN WILLIAMSON: Right now, we’re writing 216 and 217, so we are building up to the 22 episodes. We’re going over the hill and now we’re going to catch the momentum going down, where it’s going to get fast and furious. The last four or five episodes are leading up to the entrance of Klaus and whether he will achieve his whole goal, which is to sacrifice the doppleganger.
Will that be in the season finale, or will that happen prior to that?
WILLIAMSON: I think there will be a little bit, here and there. There are so many different storylines and story components of it, that it gets divided over the last three episodes.
Will the werewolf-vampire tensions drive Caroline and Tyler apart?
WILLIAMSON: Yeah, 100%. In the very next episode, things begin to unfold in a way that doesn’t bode well for their budding relationship and their friendship. Tyler starts asking questions, and we’ll see that blow open. And, don’t forget there’s Matt (Zach Roerig) waiting over there, in the middle. There’s a little triangle there as well, with a human, a vampire and a werewolf. Tyler got through his transformation and Caroline was there for him, and they have this kinship now, of this curse. Now, we take it to the next level and play it out. It’s very tragic. I wish I could just squeal and tell you everything that’s going to happen, but over the next three episodes, it gets tragic.
Have you cast Klaus yet?
WILLIAMSON: We have not cast him yet, but we’re heavily casting right now.
Do you have candidates?
WILLIAMSON: No. There’s about 100 auditions that I have to weed through.
Is there a type that you’re looking for?
WILLIAMSON: No. I want that really great actor to surface and then go, “Wow, I can write for him. He’ll work really well.” We’re looking at people that might be familiar to an audience, but most importantly, we want the right actor, so I’m guessing it will probably be someone we don’t know. Keep in mind that Klaus is a character who, in his history, seduced Katherine in Bulgaria, so imagine someone that would have been suitable for her and not an old man.
This is just a small taste of what he had to say. To read the full interview, click here.
Ian Somerhalder was recently interviewed by Zap2It and we’ve got the video …
Nina and Candice recently dished to TV Squad about what to expect when the show returns …
TV Guide’s Natalie Abrams is reporting that Stefan and Elena will soon take a romantic trip to her parents’ lake house. While there they will have a talk about the logistics of a vampire-human relationship.
But, it won’t be all about romance and their relationship though …
Paul Wesley warned:
“They just want to be a normal couple that goes on vacation. Of course, danger is pursuing them.”
So, what is this danger? Is it Klaus? Elijah? Katherine? The Wolves? Who knows, but we’re bound to find out soon!
Lionsgate has announced the official release date for their highly anticipated film adaptation of The Hunger Games.
The movie is set to hit theatres on March 23, 2012.
Gary Ross will be directing the adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ young adult bestseller.
Hunger Games is the first in a trilogy of science fiction novels that have developed quite a large following of young and old alike.
Personally, I’m anxiously awaiting this film’s release, even though it’s more than a year away. How about y’all? Will you see the movie?
Toby Withouse, creator of the original British version of Being Human recently praised the US version …
Recently, Ryan Love with Digital Spy inquired about his feelings for the new version which airs on the Syfy network he stated:
“I’m thrilled with it – I think it’s absolutely fantastic. They’ve taken the format and made it their own. What’s fantastic is to be able to watch the show as a fan and not as somebody who’s sat rocking and dripping and crying in front of the computer for months to make it. I’m thoroughly enjoying watching it. The performances are great, the writing’s fantastic – it’s terrific.”
The British version of Being Human is coming to the US …
According to EW, BBC America will begin airing the shows 3rd series on Saturday, February 19th.
So, are y’all as excited as I am? I’m only hoping now that they decide to re-air the first 2 seasons beforehand so I can catch up!
