EW has an exclusive first look at David Anders on The Vampire Diaries. Check it out! And beware below, if you don’t want to be spoiled.

Vampire Diaries execs didn’t have to cut through any bloody red tape to cast David Anders as Elena and Jeremy’s uncle, Jonathan Gilbert. “When we started talking about this role, I immediately thought, ‘What about Sark from Alias?’ executive producer Julie Plec recalls. “We called his agent the next day and the day after that [the deal was] done.”It’s fair to say Anders’ arrival in Mystic Falls will be slightly more complicated. The Alias and Heroes alum makes his debut in the April 15 episode when it comes time for Elena and Jeremy to sell their father’s doctor office. “He has to sign the escrow papers but he isn’t quite ready to give the office up,” explains fellow e.p., Kevin Williamson. “But like everyone else in town, he’s there for something [else]. His intentions are not pure.”

We wouldn’t have it any other way. Would we?

Thanks to @VDiaries_se for the heads up on this video from TV Guide Magazine! There has got to be one out there of Melinda’s hug from Paul!! Where is it!! LOL

Well, well. We have quite a bit of buzz about Spencer Locke’s role on The Vampire Diaries floating around on the Internet and Twittersphere since we posted about her casting the other day. So here we go. Both TV Guide Magazine and MTV’s Hollywood Crush has the scoop. Including a new episode title for what I belive will beEpisode 19. Check it out from Hollywood Crush!

Oh, Twitter, what did we used to do in the days before you existed in our lives? Thanks to a Hollywood Crush informant, we came across a juicy tweet from “Big Time Rush” star Spencer Locke today (it was posted March 1) that read: “packing for Atlanta, GA! so excited to be working on Vampire Diaries :) not so prepared for the freezing COLD!what to bring..what to bring..”Spencer has plenty on her plate these days — she recently appeared on “Cougar Town” and will be seen in the upcoming sci-fi horror flick “Resident Evil: Afterlife” — so we just knew whatever was bringing her to Mystic Falls had to be pretty worth it. Here’s what we know so far: A rep for the CW series confirmed to us that Spencer will be featured in an upcoming episode titled “Miss Mystic Falls” and her character’s name is Amber.

From our quick “Vampire Diaries” research, we can’t seem to find a trace of that name in the book series, which means she’s another genius creation from the minds of exec producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec. We have a feeling she may be working closely with Malese Jow, who plays feisty vampire Anna, as she tweeted a picture of her and Spencer yesterday along with this note: “Proceed extensive assemblage”! hottest new crew around! Taking over HOTlanta! http://twitpic.com/179x6f.”

Perhaps the episode title suggests they’ll also be a beauty pageant? If that’s the case, then may the best giril win!

Yesterday, I stumbled upon a tweet from Spencer Locke that she was heading to Atlanta to be on The Vampire Diaries. And then Malese Jow tweeted this. I’ve searched high and low for any casting news and I haven’t found it yet. Maybe someone can shed some light for me? I might just tweet her and ask her myself. Here’s her IMDB profile and a short bio from TV.com.

At a young age, Spencer Locke already seems to have a bright future. She went to Hollywood with a manager at age 11 and landed her first gig as a guest star on Without a Trace in 2004. Although she is a sweet and cheerful person, she has been known to play sassy popular girls such as Bitsy on Ned’s Defied School Survival Guide and Candita on Phil of the Future. She is probably best known as the former girlfriend of the loveable Jacob Smith. One of her best known roles is that of K-Mart in the film Resident Evil: Extinction. She currently lives in California where she is managed and supported by the Lane Management Talent Agency. Spencer has appeared in the Kidz Bop commercials and is breaking out as a talented young actress that deserves a second thought.

UPDATE: Thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, we have the following info on Spencer Locke, it appears her role on The Vampire Diaries will be guest starring.

Well this is just beyond adorable! Damon Weaver interviews Katerina Graham at the 2010 NAACP Image Awards.

This article from William Keck of TV Guide Magazine is one of many circulating the net from the Paley Fest.  But here, Keck addresses the cliffhangers we were left with in the last episode, Elena’s search for her mother, and where our favorite witch Bonnie will be.

Many of the cliffhangers fans were left with when the last original episode aired will be addressed on March 25, when the next original episode, titled “A Few Good Men,” airs. Paley guests were treated to an advance screening of the episode, which (trust us) takes Damon’s cruelty to a whole new level. By the end of the hour, you’ll be left wondering how Elena can ever even speak to him again. “Some truths are revealed and the episode ends on a major bang,” teases Paul Wesley (Stefan). He’s not kidding.

With Elena (Nina Dobrev) just having learned she’s adopted, she begins a dangerous search for her birth mother, whom keen viewers know shares a connection to Alaric Saltzman. The revelations, says Nina Dobrev (Elena) will “intensify her love/hate relationship with Damon. His actions to achieve what he wants are truly horrible.”

But the episode offers more light-hearted moments, as Damon takes part in a charity bachelor auction alongside Alaric. “It’s a lot of fun,” teases Ian Somerhalder (Damon). A future episode will find Damon meeting up with Matt’s mom, Kelly (The O.C.’s Melinda Clarke) at a bar. “Much to the chagrin of Matt,” Somerhalder says. “They hit it off and end up hooking up.”

One face was absent from the episode — Katerina Graham, who plays Bonnie Bennett. She’ll be off the canvas for three episodes “grieving the death of Grams”, explains creator Kevin Williamson. “She goes off to stay with family, but comes back with an attitude.”

Adds co-executive producer Julie Plec: “Bonnie’s been nothing but supportive of Elena’s relationship with Stefan up until this point, but given everything that’s happened — the tomb didn’t quite get closed and Grams died for nothing, it’s going to be difficult for her to be a good friend.”

SPOILER ALERT! Here’s an exclusive first look from EW! Damon and Kelly Donovan, aka Matt’s mom who is portrayed by Melinda Clarke from the March 25th episode A Few Good Men. And below, Julie Plec sheds some light on their “hook up”.

he Vampire Diaries‘ brooding bloodsucker Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is in for one hell of a tasty treat when The O.C.’s Melinda Clarke blows into Mystic Falls as Matt’s hard-partying, absentee mother, Kelly, on March 25. “The two of them hit it off instantly and form a bond that results in some hard-core flirtin’ and sexin’,” coos exec producer Julie Plec, who notes that “Damon isn’t just about the high school girls. He’s a worldly guy, so watching him sex it up with a real woman was very exciting.”
