The Vampire Diaries: Look for Joseph Morgan’s Debut as Klaus on April 21st

Published

on

The current break in airings of “The Vampire Diaries” will be over on April 7th, and then fans of the series will have just a two-week wait before seeing how well Joseph Morgan fares in the role of original vampire Klaus. If his co-star Ian Somerhalder is correct, we can expect him to be “magnificent”.

Joseph Morgan is Klaus in The Vampire Diaries@IanSomerhalder tweeted tonight: At dinner with Julie Plec, Paul Sommers(TVD director of photography),Elena, Stefan,Elijah,and Klaus. This got us a little curious as to when exactly Klaus might be making his debut, and thanks to EW.com the date of April 21st has been confirmed.

Per EW, Morgan’s casting is in line with what exec producers have teased all along. Exec producer Kevin Williamson [said] the role would go to someone younger. “It has to be someone that we truly believe was in a relationship with Katherine because that’s where it started. He seduced her and whisked her away,” he said.

And exec producer Julie Plec, who revealed back in December that a couple hundred actors had already read for the role, told us they liked the idea of choosing a relative unknown. “That’s what excites me: This idea that there might be somebody out there that no one’s really familiar with yet that can be a new fresh face that we can exploit…in all the good ways,” she said. “The big important elements of this character are charisma and gravitas. You’ve got to be able to be afraid of this guy, whether you’re afraid of him because he looks scary or because he’s so charming that the fact that he can snap your neck with his pinky would take you by surprise.”

It was in a recent interview with Examiner.com that Somerhalder praised Morgan, whose credits include “Hex”, TV mini-series “Ben Hur”, and the upcoming Immortals, as “a magnificent guy [whose] acting abilities are way up there.” When asked about how the characters in the show are taking the arrival of the epic vampire, he said, “I think everyone’s on their toes now because he’s a bad-ass.”

Look for a synopsis of the April 21st episode soon, and for more visit the official “The Vampire Diaries” website.

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
