I've just found out the CW has already cast Klaus... so now we can know the face of this evil vampire who's soon coming to Mystic Falls.
His name is Joseph Morgan and this is his face:
Doesn't he look a lot like Mark Pellegrino here?
According to TV-line:
Writes Michael Ausiello, "Sources confirm to me exclusively that English thesp Joseph Morgan is nearing a deal to join the cast as the oft-referred-to-but-never-seen member of the Originals.... Although the 30-year-old actor’s resume consists primarily of British films and TV series, he appeared stateside in Oliver Stone’s Alexander and the Russell Crowe blockbusterMaster and Commander. He also starred opposite Smallville‘s Kristin Kreuk in ABC’s Ben-Hur miniseries."
The casting of Morgan comes after an extensive search for the right actor for the role.
