marco-james-vampire-diaries-casting-season-6TheWrap has learned exclusively that The Vampire Diaries has booked The Client List’s Marco James and Rectify’s Jayson Warner Smith for recurring roles in The Vampire Diaries Season 6!

New blood is just what the doctor ordered for the sixth season of CW’s “The Vampire Diaries.”

TheWrap has learned that Marco James has been cast in a recurring role as Liam, an attractive and smart upperclassman at Whitmore College.

Described as cocky yet good-natured, he’s a med student who comes from a family of doctors. James will make his first appearance on the Season 6 season premiere airing Thursday, Oct. 2 at 8/7c.

Also, if you’re a fan of Jayson Warner Smith, who played the psychopath death row inmate Wendall Jelks from Sundance’s “Rectify,” TheWrap has also learned that he just booked a really minor role on “TVD” for at least two episodes as a guy who runs a high-end hot rod shop. Alexander White Agency reps Smith.

And TV Guide and EW are some Casting scoop to share as well!!
