The CW has cast the two leads in Supernatural: Tribes, its planned Supernatural spinoff, and one of the main roles belongs to Nathaniel Buzolic, best known to Vampire Diaries fans as a deceased member of The Originals.
The actor will portray David Hayden, a shapeshifter from one of Chicago's ruling monster families. He's living as a human when we meet him, having given up the supernatural life years prior.
Lucien Laviscount (Episodes, Skins), meanwhile, will take on Ennis Roth, a police academy member whose fiancee is murdered and who therefore aims to hunt down the monsters who rule the Windy City.
Supernatural: Tribes will focus on the underbelly of a fictional Chicago, tracking Hayden and Roth in their missions to take out the city's evil forces.
Both new stars will appear on Supernatural Season 9 Episode 20, which will serve as a backdoor Tribes pilot.
