Michael Malarkey is on his way to Mystic Falls.
The actor will come on board multiple episodes of The Vampire Diaries Season 5 as Enzo, described by Deadline insiders as a "charismatic but tortured" figure from Damon Salvatore's past.
It's unclear what brings Enzo to town, but he'll look to reconnect with his former friend and debut on December 5.
Malarkey has a history with The CW: he was cast as the male lead in The Selection pilot, a drama that did not get picked up this past season by the network.
But the young actor clearly made an impression.
And he won't be the only person to blast from a Salvatore brother's past this fall: Janina Gavankar has been cast as Stefan's ex and will make her first appearance on The Vampire Diaries next week.
