As we tweeted earlier, Deadline is now reporting that Joseph Morgan has officially signed on to play “Klaus”. TV Line’s Michael Ausiello was originally the one to break the news. Ausiello also reported the other day that Klaus will make his debut in the April 21st episode.
Joseph Morgan has now been signed to play him. Morgan, who’ll next be seen in the Henry Cavill-starrerImmortals, played supporting roles in the Peter Weir-directed Master and Commander, and Oliver Stone’s Alexander. He plays the title character in ABC’s upcoming miniseries Ben Hur. He was set for the show after more than 100 actors read for the role all over the world. Morgan’s deal was made by WME, Richard Koenigsberg Management and London-based Curtis Brown Group.
