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!

Steve Marsi is the Managing Editor of TV Fanatic. Follow him on Google+ or email him here.


only one... Mads Mikkelsen. His face also reminds rutger hauer (The Hitcher) who inspired Klaus character.


James Van Der Beek!!! Almost all of the Dawson's Creek crew is on the CW or has guest roles. James showed up on Tree Hill a couple of seasons back. Bet he'd make a great Klaus. Ian and Kevin and maybe some of the others already know him. But if he does, no "Rules of Attraction" scenes between Klaus & Damon!!!


How about Chad Michael Murray?


Burn Gorman or James Marsters


two words.
Chuck. Norris.


..Ryan Gossling (All good things), or Edward Norton..


What about Ryan Gosling
he was awesome and twisted in All good things. I think he would be bad ass with the salvatore brothers


omggg dawn I totally agree with you that it should be Henry Cavil lol i was totally thinking that it should be him for the longest time and im glad someone else agrees


How about someone who looks just like Brad Pitt in the movie "interview with a vampire". That would be Hott!!


Possibly Jason Behr.
