'The Vampire Diaries:' Meet Silas

The Vampire Diaries’ newest big bad has finally been cast. And no, it isn’t Regis Philbin. (Sorry, Ian Somerhalder!).

Actor Scott Parks—whose most recent credit includes a stint on Homeland as a team agent—has been tapped to play the elusive Silas, the CW has confirmed.

Of course, that doesn’t mean we’ll actually see a lot of Parks in the role. Fans who watched the most recent episode of The Vampire Diaries know that Silas can take any form —  a skill he’ll likely put to good use as the series races toward its May 16 finale.
