As previously reported, David Anders is coming on board The Vampire Diaries this spring in the role of Jonathan Gilbert, Elena and Jeremy's uncle.
In a new interview, the former Alias/Heroes/24 star spoke about his character, making it sound like neither Stefan nor Damon will be pleased to see him...
On his character: Just like his great grandfather, the original Jonathan Gilbert in 1864, he knows far too much about vampires, more than he should know about vampires. So I'm a know-it-all and I hold the information that I have over Damon and Stefan's heads threatening to expose them in Mystic Falls if they don't play ball with me. There is a lot more than that which I can't really go into.
On interactions with Damon: I've been having a lot of stuff with Damon, Ian Somerhalder's character, and my character is not at all afraid of Damon. We find ourselves in a bunch of pissing contests going toe to toe. My character proves to be a good foe for Damon.
On Jonathan vs. Alaric: [Alaric] is kind of aligned with the vampires, with Damon and Stefan, whereas I am not aligned. That's another good tête-à-tête we have cooking up too between me and Alaric. There is plenty of opportunity for duels.
