Last week, producer Kevin Williamson teased a future flashback episode of The Vampire Diaries.

But he didn't share this exciting news, which we just uncovered: During the installment, which airs on January 21, viewers will meet Damon and Stefan's father, Giuseppe!

The Lost Boys

When The Vampire Diaries next flashes back, we'll meet the man that brought these two into the world.

In a casting notice sent out by The CW, Giuseppe is described as a handsome, no-nonsense businessman of Italian heritage. He's in his mid-40s, "with a stern demeanor that hides a fierce devotion to his family and growing fears for their future."

Any suggestions for who should take on this role? Share them now in our Vampire Diaries forum!

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
