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.

    I hope he's not the only black actor they're going to have but as of yet he's the only one I've seen so far...

    I'm several eps behind, but enjoy Vampire Diaries. Will definitely be checking the spin-off out; they've got a solid start with the actors they're pulling from VD.
