To all the people who keep email me wanting to be an extra in The Vampire Diaries…well, here ya go!
Covington’s newest TV show, “Vampire Diaries” is having an open casting call for paid, non-speaking extras on Sunday, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express at 9159 Access Road.
Interested parties don’t need to have any experience but should bring a recent photo of themselves, no larger than 4 inches by 6 inches. Applicants will be required to fill out a form with contact and other general information; they will also receive a document describing all of the details of being an extra, Extras Casting Director Marti Cherrix said.
Extras will be paid $7.25 per hour plus overtime for any hour worked over eight in a single day.
Even though the show is based on high-school characters, Cherrix said she is looking for all types of people and all age ranges, because the show will have many general scenes which require all types of people, like restaurants and shopping centers.
“We want all range of types and ages, because extras are there to create background. I provide the textures and balances,
like painting a picture on film; I’m there to provide a realistic scene,” Cherrix said. “Certainly if we’re shooting a high school scene, you’re going to have younger people, but you’re also going to be some teachers and principals. In a restaurant, there may be parents and some grandparents. We try to portray an everyday slice of America, what people really look, try to keep it in the real world, not just the reel world.”

According to Variety, The Vampire Diaries air date will be on September 10th. Excited we finally have a date!
The CW will kick off its fall campaign on Sept. 8 with the sophomore year of “90210″ and the bow of “Melrose Place.”
Net has also decided to flop the time slots of its Monday dramas, which will send “Gossip Girl” to the 9 p.m. hour.
It’s the second year in a row that “90210″ is the centerpiece of the net’s fall launch campaign, and CW is hoping that anticipation will be high for the remodeled “Melrose.” CW is getting a jumpstart on its competish by launching the week of Sept. 8, but it won’t be quite as quick out of the gate as last year, when the net’s fall sked launched on Labor Day.
The rollout continues Sept. 9 with the two-hour preem of “America’s Next Top Model,” followed Sept. 10 by the preem of “Vampire Diaries” and return of “Supernatural.”
The Monday slate returns on Sept. 14, though the “Gossip Girl”-”One Tree Hill” slot swap will take effect July 6 with repeat segs. The regular Wednesday slate of “Top Model” and newbie drama “A Beautiful Life” arrives on Sept. 16.
CW’s Friday lineup of “Smallville” and “Top Model” repeat will not materialize until Sept. 25. On Friday Sept. 11 and Sept. 18, the net plans to run repeats of its new dramas.
CW will also rerun segs of its new series on Sundays through Sept. 27, when it formally returns five hours of program time to its affiliate stations. CW confirmed last month that it is bowing out of Sunday programming in an effort to strengthen its overall primetime perf (Daily Variety, May 5).
CW also confirmed to its affiliate stations this month that it will give back one hour of its two-hour Monday-Friday daytime block as of the 2010-11 season. At present it programs the 3-5 p.m. block with yakker “The Tyra Banks Show,” one original and one repeat seg. As of 2010-11, it will return the 4-5 p.m. hour to affiliates.

I was browsing around over at TVweek.com and found this nice plot summary for The Vampire Diaries posted…so I kinda stole it. ;-)
“THE VAMPIRE DIARIES” (New Series)
Four months after the tragic car accident that killed their parents, 17-year-old Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev, “DeGrassi: The Next Generation”) and her 15-year-old brother, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen, “Everwood”) are still trying to cope with their grief and move on with their lives. Elena has always been the star student; beautiful, popular and involved with school and friends, but now she finds herself struggling to hide her sadness from the world. As the school year begins, Elena and her friends are fascinated by a handsome and mysterious new student, Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley, “Army Wives”). Stefan and Elena are immediately drawn to one another, and Elena has no way of knowing that Stefan is a centuries-old vampire, struggling to live peacefully among humans, while his brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder, “Lost”) is the embodiment of vampire violence and brutality. Now these two vampire brothers ─ one good, one evil ─ are at war for Elena’s soul and for the souls of her friends, family and all the residents of the small town of Mystic Falls, Virginia. Based on the series of books by L. J. Smith, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is from Alloy Entertainment and Bonanza Productions Inc in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Kevin Williamson (“Dawson’s Creek,” “I Know What You Did Last Summer”), Julie Plec (“Kyle XY,” “Wasteland”), Leslie Morgenstein (“Gossip Girl,” “Privileged”) and Bob Levy (“Gossip Girl,” “Privileged”). Marcos Siega (“Dexter”) directed the pilot.
Damon Salvatore | Stefan Salvatore - (5 Comments)
Ahhh I love late night Tweets from the Vampire Diaries team. You always get all the juicy scoop. According to one of the executive producers, Julie Plec, it turns out that Damon’s and Stefan’s last name on the show will be Salvatore after all. Whitmore is out. Can I get a hallelujah?
She also goes on to say that the correct pronunciation is Salvatore and not Salvatoreee and that it is Stefan not Stefahn. That’s fine by me because that’s exactly how I have always pronounced the names.
