According to Deadline, Joseph Morgan has officially singed to play Klaus. TV Line‘s Ausiello dropped the bombshell that the actor was negotiating for the role earlier this month. You may recognize Joseph from “Master and Commander” and “Alexander”. Check out the full report over at Deadline.

Finally, Inside TV has more from their chat with Sara Canning. She teases what’s ahead for her character, particularly in the next episode. Read an excerpt here and visit EW’s Spoiler Room for the rest. Poor Aunt Jenna!

Last night’s episode of The Vampire Diaries was certainly a tough one for Aunt Jenna (Sara Canning). Not only did she find herself distrusting her beau Alaric, but then he went and all but confirmed his streak of dishonesty regarding Isobel. And as it turns out, it’s only going to get worse for Elena’s still-clueless guardian.

“We’ll see her deal with it in her Jenna-like way. She’ll deal with some crazy stuff in next week’s episode, too, actually. Something that will shake her up even worse,” Canning teases.

Chats, chats, chats: Zimbio interview with Sara Canning, Dawn Olivieri talks to TV Guide & EW + Steven spills up to The TV Chick

Thanks to Vampire-Diaries.net for the heads up on this Zimbio chat with Sara Canning. She comments on her career before the show, castmate Matt Davis and shooting love scenes with him. Tonight’s episode is also mentioned. Read the entire story over at Zimbio.

Zimbio: What is your typical day like filming on Vampire Diaries?
Sara: Getting up really early. I do a vocal warm-up in my car. Then I show up to set and go into hair and makeup; there’s anywhere from one to six of us in there at any time. The cast are my really great friends but also great people to watch work. We all jive together really well. Last week I shot a scene with six other cast members, it was all of us, for one day, in one room, shooting a bunch of scenes. And we just looked at each other and were like, ‘How good do we have it?’

Guest star Dawn Olivieri was interviewed this week, too. Robyn Ross has a wonderful chat with her up at TV Guide. She teases tonight’s “dinner party”, what the future holds for her and how long Andie will stick around town.

Mandi Bierly caught up with Dawn as well. The star dishes about Damon’s compulsion on her character, how it affects her as well as the struggle she’s going through. Visit Inside TV for all this + some great stories.

Also, The TV Chick posted her interview with Steven R. McQueen today. The actor discusses THE kiss, the consequences of it, the relationship between the Gilberts, etc. And here’s what he’d like to see next for Jeremy:

And what would you like to see from Jeremy coming up in the 2nd half of season 2? He’s really taken on this nice big role.
I think it’d be interesting to see him be more involved with his family legacy and starting to get involved with the training of being a vampire hunter. Whether Alaric takes him under his wing, or Uncle John, and just kind of get mentored in the right direction.

Head over to The TV Chick for the rest of the article.

New stills from The Dinner Party & The House Guest

Many thanks to Vampire Diaries Web for providing these additional stills from tomorrow’s “The Dinner Party”! They’re both featuring Stefan back in 1864, when he wasn’t the better brother. See them in Vampire Diaries Web’s gallery.

Episode 16 stills have been released as well. A few images can be found here and head over to VDW (these guys are just awesome, aren’t they?) for more HQs. Thanks to Nina Dobrev Network for the heads up! SPOILERS TO FOLLOW: As fan theories say, it’s not just Elena in the stills. They suppose Katherine’s set free and she’s the “house guest”. Nina’s look, expression and attitude in the first few stills are very Katherine-esque, to begin with. More to it, she’s wearing leggings as well as holding a whiskey tumbler which is so not Elena. So, we have every reason to think the b-tch is back. However, I believe it’s Elena here since Bonnie wouldn’t exactly smiling in Ms. Pierce’s company. Well done, TVD family!

One-minute promo for The Dinner Party, first still from 216 + song list and ratings for last night’s episode

Mandi Bierly from EW goes to Steven R. McQueen for spoilers. And he doesn’t let us down either. Steven comments on Jeremy’s relationship with Bonnie and John Gilbert. Plus, he tells us whether we’ll see him by Damon’s side again any time soon. The article is up over at Inside TV.

Spoilers selection: Crying wolf promo, synopsis of 215 & 216, episode stills and more

TV Line has recently reported that the search for Klaus is finally over. The legendary vampire will be probably played by Joseph Morgan. As you can guess, this immediately became top “Vampire Diaries” news. Although the actor’s credits include mostly British films and TV series, he does have some intriguing roles. Back in 2003, he starred in “Master and Commander” along with Russell Crow. Morgan has also played Philotas in the biography movie about the life of Alexander the Great (starring Colin Farrell, Angelina Jolie). Something about his face (right) reminds me of Klaus. I think he would make a fierce Original! What’s your opinion? Learn more over at TV Line.

Let’s continue with the tidbits, shall we? In this article, Natalie Abrams reviews the latest TVD spoilers from TV Guide. She comments on the showdown between vampires and werewolves, warlocks Martin, Jr. and Martin, Sr., Elena’s destiny, etc. Great recap, especially if you haven’t had a chance to caught up with the news lately!

TV Guide Magazine also highlights the top moments from “Daddy Issues” in its 7-13 February issue. As usual, spoiler warning for the ones, who haven’t seen the episode yet. HUGE thanks to tariel22 via @tvdfansonline, the scan is up at their site!

Clevver TV caught up with Stephen Amell’s (Brady) cousin, Robbie last week. He spills up about his cousin’s guest role on “The Vampire Diaries”, teasing he’s going be around for two episodes. It means 214 “Crying Wolf” is his final ep. Why is he gone after only two weeks? Are the Salvatore brothers to blame? That, we’ll see this Thursday. For now, enjoy Clevver TV’s report. Thanks, Vampire Diaries Online!

Official descriptions for episode 15 (“The Dinner Party”) and 16 (“The House Guest”) (click to visit VampireSite.net) have been released as well. Airing February 17th and February 24th, respectively.

In addition to “The Dinner Party” synopsis, episode stills have been revealed. Third flashback episode this season = plenty of Stefan and Damon. Head over to Vampire Diaries Web to check the images out.

CW television has uploaded an extended trailer for “Crying Wolf”. This week, “a romantic getaway is about to get some unwanted guests”. All new “The Vampire Diaries” Thursday 8/7c. See you there!

Zap2it & EW: More tidbits from the Vampire Diaries cast

Zap2it‘s @cadlymack hasn’t been doing anything but teasing us this week. Following her video interviews with Kat and Ian, fellow “Vampire Diaries” fan published new snippets from Wesley and Dobrev as well as clips featuring Somerhalder and Trevino (click to check them out).

Before things go terribly wrong, fans of Stefan and Elena as a couple will be pleased to see some sweet, happy moments, including an emotional scene where they discuss the reality of Elena’s mortality. After all, if Elena remains human, she is inevitably going to age and someday die — while Stefan will stay 17 forever. “There’s a lovely scene that we do at the lake house discussing that,” Wesley says. “Touching lightly upon it without hitting you over the head, you know what I mean? It’s really kind of beautiful.”

Read the rest of the chat with Paul here.

“She feels like everyone around her is against her,” Dobrev says. “She has one thing in mind: she wants to sacrifice herself to save her family and her friends, and they are hell-bent on stopping her. It almost feels like everyone is against her. Now, her father comes home on top of everything, and he’s in cahoots with everyone about it.”

The entire Nina interview – at Zap2it.

EW‘s recently caught up with Michael Trevino and Ian Somerhalder, too. Michael speculates what could happen when already too confused Tyler finds about the Sun and the Moon curse. The actor also spoils his character will have some serious choices to make rather sooner than later – and they will have quite an impact on vampires and werewolves both. Visit PopWatch for the full story.

On the other hand, Ian talks about filming while having walking pneumonia. As you probably remember, Mr. Somerhalder was sick in the last two months of 2010 – in other words, from episode 9 to 12. Despite that fact, he didn’t go home (as normal people would do), but continue shooting. Marcos Siega’s return and the possibility of “Vampire Diaries” set cursed are also mentioned. Find the whole article over at Inside TV.

Oh, and there’s a “Where Were We” slideshow up at Entertainment Weekly. It includes tidbits from almost every cast member. Must read!

Spoilers galore: Vampire Diaries in EW, Plec spills to TV Guide & TV Fanatic, PopWatch previews Damon’s bedroom + more

This week has brought “Vampire Diaries” fans a lot of scoop. First, Mega Buzz posted an interesting snippet from Julie Plec saying “the vampire-werewolf conflict is going to go from a simmer to a boil.” The executive producer also comments on Tyler and Jules’s relationship status, visit TV Guide for the entire story.

Julie Plec talked to one more TV Guide reporter – Carita Rizo. In Julie’s chat with her (which you can find here), she discusses Klaus (how surprising, isn’t it?), how the curse will affect Rose and everyone else as well as what’s ahead for Damon and Elena.

Gabrielle Compolongo posted part two of her interview with Plec. The writer compares Klaus vs. Elijah, teases the Originals, the Katherine-stuck-in-the-tomb situation, Luka and his dad, etc. Plus, she answers the question whether Elena and Damon will ever get together. Head over to TV Fanatic to find out, but first, read on to understand what you can look forward to when the show returns.

In a summation, what can you tell us about the second half of season two?
We’ve set a lot of things in motion, and we’re going to come to the end of what we’re calling our werewolf chapter, which will really take that story to a really dark place and really change a lot of characters’ lives, not necessarily in a good way. We are going to dig deeper into the secrets of our new witches and what Bonnie’s role is going to be in their story, and of course, it’s all about the fear of the impending Klaus, and who’s going to be fighting on who’s side, who’s bond is with who, who’s going to betray whom, and is this curse going to be lifted at the hands of a sacrifice that would kill Elena. We’re full steam ahead.

Los Angeles Times has a nice review of Nina’s quotes said at the CW Winter TCA Panel and Party last week. The actress comments on playing the very different from one another Elena and Katherine. She also shares her speculations about whether or not Ms. Pierce will come out of the tomb, if  Elena will keep her promise to Elijah and more. Read the full article at Show Tracker.

Ian Somerhalder hasn’t dallied, too. He recently revealed PopWatch what Damon’s bedroom looked like. Kevin and Julie joined him to talk about his character’s bathroom. According to them, there will be a bath scene in one episode, and a shower scene in the next. We couldn’t ask for more, could we? Check out the rest of the interview over at Entertainment Weekly.

“The Vampire Diaries” is also featured in the latest issue of EW. The Salvatore Boarding House has the spread in HQ, and Vampire-Diaries.net published a great recap of the major hints. Both the scans and the article are up at their site.

Daddy Issues (213) synopsis, latest Candice appearances + various cast interviews

The episode description of “Daddy Issues” has been released, thanks to VampireSite.net. According to the latest spoilers (and Michael Trevino’s tweet), David Anders is coming back in it. The synopsis confirms that. Besides Uncle John’s return, Damon’s shower scene takes place in that episode as well. In conclusion, I already love February 3rd.

CHOOSING SIDES — Johnathan Gilbert’s (guest star David Anders) return to Mystic Falls comes as an unhappy surprise to Elena (Nina Dobrev), Jenna (Sara Canning) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder). Caroline (Candice Accola) lets Stefan (Paul Wesley) know about her conversation with Tyler (Michael Trevino), and Stefan does his best to reach out to a confused and conflicted Tyler. Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) comforts Bonnie (Katerina Graham) after her disturbing conversation with Jonas (guest star Randy Goodwin). When Jules (guest star Michaela McManus) takes a hostage, the situation quickly escalates into a violent confrontation.

Zach Roerig and Matt Davis also star. Joshua Butler directed the episode written by Kevin Williamson & Julie Plec.

Candice Accola has recently attended a few events (our 2011 Winter TCA master post is coming, so stay tuned!). First, she showed up at Give Back Hollywood Foundation & Fashion Forms Giving Lounge on January 13th. Two days later, the actress shone in a black dress at 2011 Art Of Elysium “Heaven” Gala. Visit the links above for high quality photos. HUGE thanks to @CAccolaWeb!

Speaking of, Mandie (the webmaster) has a poll about the recent “Buffy” speculations up over at her site. If you haven’t heard yet, Candice is one of the actresses most likely to star in the upcoming remake. In case you’re interested, Candice Accola Web has links to various articles.

Also, TV Guide and EW posted their chats with Steven R. McQueen and Sara Canning, respectively. Robyn Ross and Steven talk about Jeremy’s crush on Bonnie, his season 2 motivations and more. The video can be found after the break and Robyn’s article is over here. On the other hand, Sara comments on the men in her character’s life – Alaric, John Gilbert and… Original Elijah? There are quotes from Kevin, Julie and Ian included, too. Head over to Inside TV for the entire interview.
