The Vampire Diaries has found its new Alaric.

Okay, not really, but Australian actor Rick Cosnett is set to come on board the CW drama as a professor at Whitmore College named Dr. Wes Maxfield.

As reported by TV Guide, Elena and Caroline's teacher will be both intelligent and conceited, while also holding a secret that likely has a lot to do with certain members of the undead parading around Mystic Falls.

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

Hey, Blondie. Today isn't the worst day of your life. Today and tomorrow, it's a cakewalk. There'll be people around you day in and day out like they're afraid to leave you alone. The worst day? That's next week when there's nothing but quiet. Just a heads up.

Damon
