Joseph Morgan (BBC)

Could this be Klaus?

TV Line is reporting that English actor Joseph Morgan has been tapped to play the part of the frequently mentioned, though never seen, king of evil, Klaus. The much hyped publicity surrounding the search for the perfect actor for the role hinted that it might be someone obscure and unexpected and it looks like that is the case after all.

Morgan is 30 years old and best known in the US for his roles in the films "Master And Commander" and "Alexander." He's also appeared in independent films like "Mister Lonely" and starred in several TV series on UK television. The busy actor currently has five films in post production. No word yet on when we'll be seeing him on The Vampire Diaries but will keep you informed of more information as it becomes available.
