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?

Mads Mikkelsen!


Eric Braedon, who plays Victor Neuman on a soap opera, he has all the looks of evil, older and very mature, and very cold blooded.


Allan Hyde, he played Godric in True Blood


I say Julian McMahon - he played the perfect Source of evil in Charmed. He can totally pull this off ;)


Cam Gigandet. Most definitely Cam Gigandet.


If u want evil than theres no one better than Liev Schreiber. He would really be able to represent the animalic/predatory nature of a Vampire.


Gaspard Ulliel! DEFINITELY!


It'll be great if they can get David Boreanaz on the show.


Either of them would do great!!
Matt lanter
David boereanaz
Liam neeson
Or a totally fresh face!!!


Either James Marsters or David Boreanaz would be TOTALLY AWESOME AS KLAUS!! Julian McMahon would also be excellent! Jenson Ackles or Jared Padalecki would be awsome also! Just too many choices!!!!
