After some casting choices that were disconcerting to Vampire Diaries purists, it seems that the choices for vampire brothers Damon and Stefan might receive the stamp of approval from fans.
In quick succession, Variety reported that Ian Somerhalder had been cast as Damon, while The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Paul Wesley had landed the role of Stefan. Somerhalder is probably best known as Boone Carlyle on Lost. Wesley was most recently on 24, but I remember him best as Lucas Luthor, Lex’s younger half-brother on Smallville.
According to Televixen reader and Vampire Diaries expert Sheryl, these are two excellent choices for the blood drinking brothers. I’m thrilled at the prospect of seeing Somerhalder on my TV again soon. I think he’ll look really good in fangs!
So what do you think? Did the PTBs finally get some casting choices right for The Vampire Diaries’ pilot?
