Charles Michael Davis from BET’s The Game, has signed up to co-star in a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries on the CW, titled The Originals.
Already attached are Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies and Phoebe Tonkin in a new series that will center on the Original family of vampires…
… as Klaus (Morgan) returns to the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans — a town he helped build centuries ago — and is reunited with his diabolical former protégé Marcel (played by Charles Michael Davis). Wicked, wild and charismatic, Marcel is a former kicked-around street rat who now calls the shots in the supernatural playground of New Orleans. As a modern-day vampire, he’s fierce and bold, able to accomplish as much with his charm as he is with his strength. Elijah (Gillies), intent on helping his self-destructive brother find redemption, must side with Marcel’s enemies in order to keep Klaus in line.
I assume all of that means a lot to those of you who watch The Vampire Diaries series.
But it looks like Mr Davis will be playing quite a hefty role.
Davis can next be seen in a recurring role on Grey’s Anatomy.
