at . Comments

He played a vampire on Supernatural.

And now he'll be playing the father of a witch on The Vampire Diaries.

The veteran actor (CSI, Heroes, Battlestar Galactica) has landed one of the most anticipated roles of Season 4, coming on board later this year as the mysterious father of Kat Graham's Bonnie.

Fans know very little about Rudy Hopkins, who has been estranged from his daughter for years and scarcely even mentioned during the show's run.

But we do know Bonnie's dad is not a fan of his child's spell-casting side, and we also know that side has already led to some serious problems for Bonnie early on the Vampire Diaries Season 4.

Look for Hopkins to swoop in to Mystic Falls and try to protect his daughter from the dark forces assembling there. He will debut on Episode 10.

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

Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.

Damon
