Ahhhh! We can FINALLY put a face to the name!

The Vampire Diaries has cast actor Scott Parks as the menacing and merciless Silas — though his official episodic introduction has yet to be revealed. It better be soon given the May 16th finale!

But what will Ian Somerhalder think of this?! The smoldering actor was recently asked for his casting choice. His response?? Regis Philbin, of course.

He said:

“I mean, it’s The Vampire Diaries, so he’s probably young. But we could flip it a little bit… So, I’m thinking… Didn’t Regis [Philbin] retire? He could come back. He’s not crotchety, he’s awesome. I’m gonna talk to [CW president] Mark Pedowitz and [Warner Bros. TV president] Peter Roth about that.”

HA! Now that would be HIGHlarious!

Well, lovely TVD fans? What do U think about this new addition??

    Another pretty boy, meh I've never really agreed to their casting choices for villians, though i did like Daniel Gillies.

    Eugh, I thought Silas would be Alex Pettyfer. This Scott guy is just a huge NO.

    Re: Louise – Ian is not another pretty Boy, they hit gold when they cast Ian as Damon. Ian's great acting made Damon in to a phenomenal character. Damon is one of the most complex characters ever and Ian plays him brilliantly.

    @lala Obviously this is a dig at Klaus here. Not only is Klaus/JM super goregous and hot, but JM is the best actor on that show. Hence his own spinoff. Take your opinion elsewhere.

    Why don't you just hire Lance Bass to play Silas? He's about as intimidating looking as this guy. Wher'd you pick him up? Is he one of Brendan Frasers little cousins? Lol. Sorry, Silus should be played by someone in their late 40s to mid 50s, who looks more scary. This guy looks younger than Damon and I'm betting he is in real life, since Ian in like 34 now, and playing a 23 year old (who is actually like 170).

    As a Casting Director, I have had the honor of not only working with Scott in the past, but I currently call him a friend. Before you all decide he's a "pretty boy" or that the casting choices are not up to par, WATCH an episode with Scott as Silus… Then critique. Some of you will wish you could retract your unsavory comments here.

    i just met him at the bar the other night. i had no idea he was in the show, until a friend introduced me to him.
    trust me, he looks better in person!
    this picture of him is awful.
