Thanks to the ever reliable Michael Ausiello, we now know who has been cast as Mason Lockwood. Taylor Kinney of Trauma. Here’s the scoop, and the story is developing, so stay tuned for udpates.
Ex-Trauma EMT Taylor Kinney is joining the cast of Vampire Diaries in the recurring role of Mason Lockwood, younger brother of late Mayor Lockwood, sources confirm to me exclusively.Described as Tyler’s (Michael Trevino) “cool” uncle, Mason is sexy and athletic (duh) and possesses an easygoing charm. Though he has more control than his nephew, he can “flip in an instant” if crossed.
Kinney will make his first appearance in Diaries’ second-season premiere on Sept. 9.
So what do you guys think? Nice, huh? I hope he’s not too bad… Let me know what you think in the comments!
