Who Should Play Klaus on The Vampire Diaries?

at . Comments

The Vampire Diaries has set the bar high.

As the oldest, most bad ass vampire in the history of time, Klaus' legend precedes him - and means casting him will be a very tall order for TVD producers.

According to new reports, a face has not yet been assigned to this mysterious character, one intimidating enough to make even Damon "shake in his boots."

Elena and Elijah

You think THIS guy's scary ...

Per Ian Somerhalder, "[Klaus] is the most powerful. A guy you don't want to be in a room with. Ever. In order to kill these guys [the originals], there's such a process."

Same goes for casting them. Elijah is fairly hard core, and if Klaus is supposedly much more so ... wow. Who do you think should play this ultimate blood-sucker?

Moreover, how and when should he be introduced? Should he remain shrouded in mystery for multiple years, a la Jacob on Lost, supremely influential but never seen?

Discuss below!

Diego Klattenhoff would be the best klaus.. look him up on google!!


Henry Cavil...loved him in Tudors.




Henry Cavill is a good option too, but I mostly see Gaspard Ulliel as klaus... I don't know its going to to be interesting who they pick. There are too many thing to take in account for. I can see I dark haired guy with a creepy smile and sly eyes and tall and towering, but I also see a pale, smooth blonde haired, tall, and hot. sort of like Alexander Skarsgard on True Blood. Endless options... but I'm just saying if he isn't hot I'm going to be very angry!


Gaspard Ulliel! he is creepy but super hot! I say parfait!


Rutguer Hauer all the way. hes described as young in the books but I pictured him as older very germanic maybe w a beard and longish hair.


An early post describes Klaus as "very Nordic in appearance, with electric blue eyes and short, close-cropped platinum blond hair. He is described as being handsome despite the fact that his features are often contorted in madness." The only one I see is Jonathan Rhys Myers. The man has GORGEOUS eyes, and the rest is pretty darn nice too, yum. I think he's the perfect age, he's 33 and Ian is 31. Jonathan and Ian would be killer together.


I think Gaspard Ulliel would make a lovely vamp. Especially since he has the looks


I have a list of ideas for who could play Klaus. I hope the casting execs are paying attention... DERRICK O'CONNOR


HAHAHAHAHAHAHA @ TVD_Lover i completely agree!!!!!!! HILARIOUS YOU JUST MADE MY DAY :)
