Upfront about … CW’s The Vampire Diaries

TVD Somerhalder

Today, The CW’s 2009/2010 schedule was released, which revealed new series The Vampire Diaries will air in Smallville’s Thursday at 8 spot, followed by Supernatural at 9 (Smallville will move to Friday nights at 8 for its final season*).

If you’d like a sneak peek at The Vampire Diaries, visit TV Week to check out some clips.

After watching these clips, I have to admit, I’m not too thrilled with the first scene – it’s too heavy on the Twilight-esque angst for my liking. But I do love the scene with the fight between vampire brothers Damon and Stefan. Ian Somerhalder as Damon is striking in the vampy eye candy department!

After watching these clips, what do you think of CW’s Vampire Diaries? Think you’ll give it a chance?

*Updated info on SMALLVILLE – according to EW’s Michael Ausiello, CW exec Dawn Ostroff “hopes next season isn’t the last for Smallville.”

Vampire Diaries – Damon and Stefan Have Been Cast

After some casting choices that were disconcerting to Vampire Diaries purists, it seems that the choices for vampire brothers Damon and Stefan might receive the stamp of approval from fans.

In quick succession, Variety reported that Ian Somerhalder had been cast as Damon, while The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Paul Wesley had landed the role of Stefan. Somerhalder is probably best known as Boone Carlyle on Lost. Wesley was most recently on 24, but I remember him best as Lucas Luthor, Lex’s younger half-brother on Smallville.

According to Televixen reader and Vampire Diaries expert Sheryl, these are two excellent choices for the blood drinking brothers. I’m thrilled at the prospect of seeing Somerhalder on my TV again soon. I think he’ll look really good in fangs!

So what do you think? Did the PTBs finally get some casting choices right for The Vampire Diaries’ pilot?
