Sean Faris Heading to the Vampire Diaries


EW has learned that Sean Faris (“Reunion,” “Forever Strong,” “Life As We Know It”) will be the newest cast member on the CW’s hit “The Vampire Diaries.” He will play Ben, an ex-high school football star-turned-bartender at the Mystic Grill in a multi-episode arc. “He’s Matt’s buddy,” says a Vampire insider. “He gets entangled in the group when a broke Matt takes a job at the Mystic Grill.” There also might be some sparks between his character and one of the female co-stars, but it wasn’t revealed who. Guess we’ll have to wait and see!
