Rick Worthy Cast in Key Vampire Diaries Role

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.

I loved his acting in Supernatural. Especially when he was so dangerous and calm at the same time. I really hope he gets a good storyline in the Vampire Diaries, he deserves one.

Who knows how Bonnie's father will be like but I can't wait to see what else happens throughout season 4. =)

Why do I have a feeling that Wintchsters are Heading Vampire Diaresi if so they better move Supernatural back to Thursday it put on Wed Damonmay pop in the show.


Gonna be great for Paul to have a fellow "Fallen" Alum on his show.


Awesome choice!! I love Rick Worthy, he's a great actor and was awesome on Supernatural as well!! Can't wait to see :)


Good choice!! I'm glad they decided to go with a slightly older actor, rather than the late 30s/early 40s on the initial casting call. He is very good on Supernatural.

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: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
