The CW's Vampire Diaries has started locking in its cast. According to the Hollywod Reporter, the first in the coffin will be Steven McQueen. No, he's not back from the dead. This is Steven R. McQueen, the Steve McQueen's grandson. McQueen will be playing Jeremy, the dreamy younger brother of the heroine, Elena (who has yet to be cast).
After a string of guest roles in various TV dramas, this will be the 21-year-old's first starring role. Vampire Diaries is executive produced by Scream's Kevin Williamson and is based on the book series of the same name.
