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.

Damon

You are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.

Damon [to Elena]
