Aug 17th: Nina Dobrev was set on fire for Flatliners, for real

Jen | Categories: Nina Dobrev, Non TVD Projects | Comment

It’s no secret that looks can be deceiving, something The Vampire Diaries‘ Nina Dobrev has first-hand knowledge of. This is especially true of her upcoming film, Flatliners, a remake of Joel Schumacher’s cult classic in which Dobrev’s character is put through the ringer, to say the least — from burns, to resuscitation efforts, you name it. During a recent interview with EW, Dobrev proved there’s more to playing an unconscious person than meets the eye.

First though, the most striking (literally) of her stunts is one Dobrev admits might not even make it into the final cut: a burn that engulfs half of her character’s body. Though technology has made obvious leaps and bounds in the nearly three decades since the original Flatliners, these flames weren’t just courtesy of CGI.

Are the residents of Mystic Falls about to make their way to Riverdale?

Probably not, but Julie Plec, co-creator and executive producer of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, is going to be stopping by to direct an episode of the Archie Comics-based series on The CW.

In a stream of tweets that began after she realized she’d picked up a Teen Choice Award on Sunday night, Plec wrote, “And by the way, congrats to #Riverdale for dominating the TV awards. I’ll be there directing an episode for them this fall. Very psyched.”

Jen | Categories: Casting News, Non TVD Projects, The Vampire Diaries, Zach Roerig | Comments Off on ‘Vampire Diaries’ Actor Zach Roerig & More Set For ‘The Last Full Measure’

Jeremy Irvine, Ethan Russell, Zach Roerig and Cody Walker round out the cast of Todd Robinson’s Vietnam War pic The Last Full Measure from Foresight Unlimited. They join the ensemble led by Sebastian Stan, Christopher Plummer, William Hurt, Samuel L. Jackson, Amy Madigan, John Savage and Bradley Whitford.

Based on the true story of a present-day cover-up investigation, the pic follows young Pentagon investigator Scott Huffman as he battles the political machine in Washington. As we are brought back to what happened in one of the bloodiest battles of the Vietnam War through the eyes of the survivors, Huffman teams with the veterans of Operation Abilene to convince Congress to finally award the Medal of Honor to a courageous Air Force Pararescue Jumper Pitsenbarger, who saved many lives as his own was sacrificed.

Jul 19th: Younger Exclusive: The Originals’ Charles Michael Davis Has a Charming Proposal for Kelsey

Jen | Categories: Charles Michael Davis, Non TVD Projects, TV Appearances, TV Series, Videos | Comments Off on Younger Exclusive: The Originals’ Charles Michael Davis Has a Charming Proposal for Kelsey

Season 4 of Younger just got better.

Charles Michael Davis will bring his good looks and undeniable charm to the series tonight and TV Guide has an exclusive look at his first appearance.

The Originals star is set to play Zane, a dashing book editor from a rival publishing company who isn’t afraid to speak his mind. In the exclusive clip above, he hijacks a secret meeting Kelsey (Hilary Duff) set up with one of his authors. Instead of getting mad, however, he laughs it off and invites her to “make it up to him.”

Could he be the new guy in Kelsey’s life? We don’t have official confirmation yet but she is back on the market after dumping Colin (Jay Wilkison) for good a few weeks ago. We all know she has a tendency to date men who look the same so perhaps it’s time to switch up her aesthetic.

Younger airs Wednesday nights at 10/9c on TVLand.

Jul 17th: Paul Wesley talks the difference between directing Shadowhunters and The Vampire Diaries

Jen | Categories: directing episode, Interviews, Non TVD Projects, Paul Wesley, The Vampire Diaries, TV Series | Comments Off on Paul Wesley talks the difference between directing Shadowhunters and The Vampire Diaries

After spending eight years in the supernatural world of The Vampire Diaries — and directing five episodes of the series — Paul Wesley decided to stop through New York to visit the arguably more supernatural world of Shadowhunters. Wesley directed Monday’s episode, which sees Clary and Jace embark on a mission while Simon contemplates telling his family the truth about what he is. But before Wesley could step behind the camera, he had to brush up on the new, very complicated Shadow World.

“They sent me a PDF with a bit of backstory on all the characters,” Wesley tells EW. “Then, honestly, I went on the Wikipedia page and looked at that.”

Jul 17th: Shadowhunters Director Paul Wesley Teases Jonathan vs. Valentine, Reveals What Left Him ‘Physically Destroyed’

Jen | Categories: directing episode, interview, Non TVD Projects, Paul Wesley, TV Series | Comments Off on Shadowhunters Director Paul Wesley Teases Jonathan vs. Valentine, Reveals What Left Him ‘Physically Destroyed’

Considering his history with vampires, love triangles and complicated family dynamics, Paul Wesley directing Monday’s episode of Shadowhunters (Freeform, 8/7c) feels almost serendipitous.

Still, the former Vampire Diaries star tells TVLine (with a laugh) that he was “very surprised” the Powers That Be would trust a newcomer to the franchise with such a critical episode, adding, “I guess they foolishly put some faith in me.”

To his credit, Wesley boasts quite a bit of experience behind the camera, having directed five episodes of his own series throughout its eight-season run on The CW. And just like his episodes of The Vampire Diaries, Wesley says his main goal here was to look underneath Clary & Co.’s supernatural drama.

Jul 13th: Shadowhunters Cast Gushes About Paul Wesley’s Directorial Debut

Jen | Categories: directing episode, interview, Non TVD Projects, Paul Wesley, TV Series | Comments Off on Shadowhunters Cast Gushes About Paul Wesley’s Directorial Debut

If you were worried about Paul Wesley’s first directorial debut on a show that he didn’t happen to star in, the cast of Shadowhunters is here to put your mind at ease.

Wesley’s episode of Shadowhunters, which airs July 17, has a whole lot of magic, vampire drama and even a few werewolves, which are all right up Paul Wesley’s alley. And though he may not have been as familiar with the show as he obviously was with The Vampire Diaries, it sounds like he took to it like a fish to water.
