The Vampire Diaries: Casting for Mr. Salvatore

by at . Comments

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!

Maurice Bernard would be perfect. He's a great actor.

or maybe Jean Claude Van Damme. or Maurice Benard. I would also say Antonio Sabato, Jr. but he might be too young. He's Italian though.

Stephen Moyer...If he can at least. He would make a good guest star!!

Jeffrey Dean Morgan should definately play Giuseppe! He looks like a mix of Stefan and Damon!
