Look out, Damon Salvatore.

Shaun Sipos is coming for your woman.

According to E! News, the former Melrose Place star will return to The CW this fall as Aaron on The Vampire Diaries Season 5, a college student with a tortured past who bonds with Elena over their mutual, dark family histories. Sipos is expected to stick around for at least a few episodes.

And he won't be the only Whitmore man to make an impression on one of TVD's leading ladies: Kendrick Sampson is on board as Jesse, who is expected to cozy up to a certain blonde vampire freshman.

The Vampire Diaries Season 5 kicks off on Thursday, October 3.

seriously this show is going to be love triangle again. Elena really so lucky. always had hot boys with her. I think the show is really stupid. just get back to more stefan. poor him


As an apparent spoiler Jeremy is going to be roomies with Damon. How delicious!


All new cast members look very attractive just saying. I do wonder if Jeremy will be back or not. Will he?


Seriously this show couldn't go "dark" if the CW gave them an ultimatium of being cancelled. Where do these writers come up with these types of characters? From bad fanfiction?
Love this guy on Melrose Place though, him and Katie Cassidy made the show, the rest were idiots.


I am 20 years old and I live 5 hours away from where you shoot. Is there any possible chance I can get a role on the show?


I loved him on the Melrose reboot! The CW sure likes to recycle their actors.
