Rejoice, VD fans!!
Vampire Diaries has just casted their first gay character and he is a certified bowl full of yumminess!
Chris Brochu has been tapped by the ever so popular CW show to star as a charming gay student at Whitmore who bonds with Elena and Caroline — but wait! Apparently he has a secret agenda coming into the show!
Dun, dun, dun!
As if this show couldn't get any crazier, right?!
The actor is set to join the current season of the CW drama and has been in a number of shows like NCIS: Los Angeles, CSI:NY, etc., so, it's pretty obvious this cutie has the acting chops to take on this new character!
