Another hunter heads to town.

Mystic Falls is going to be crawling with vampire hunters this season. It has just been announced that Paul Telfer has been cast by the series as the latest man poised to kill off the local vamp population. The Scottish actor will be playing Alexander, who may or may not have a mysterious connection with Rebekah (Claire Holt).

You may have already spotted Telfer for his roles in "Spartacus," "Hercules" and "Miss Conception." His first air date has not yet been announced.
