The CW's new fall series, The Vampire Diaries, is casting a new series regular to debut in episode six. The character, Alaric Saltzman, is a fan favorite from the series of books upon which the series is based. He is a young twenty-something history teacher whom executive producer Kevin Williamson described to me as "hot." The series will also be casting several local residents in Virginia, where the show shoots, to play several townspeople, including students' parents, the town sheriff and a pastor. Applicants must not have an aversion to sharp pointy teeth.
