Exclusive: Coming up necks on 'Vampire Diaries' — Sean Faris!

sean-faris_lThirsty for some Vampire Diaries scoop? Former Reunion eye candy Sean Faris is sinking his teeth into a juicy multi-episode arc on the fangtastic CW hit, sources confirm to me exclusively.

Faris will play Ben, an ex-high school football star-turned-bartender at the Mystic Grill. “He’s Matt’s buddy,” says a Vampire insider. “He gets entangled in the group when a broke Matt takes a job at the Mystic Grill.”

The Vamp source also hints at a possible romance between Ben and one of the show’s females. But which one? Let the speculation begin in the comments!

    oimg my 13 year old fanatsies come true i still watch sleepover just to see him i hope the relation ship is between him and caroline great way to set up a love triangle between him and matt

    • FH14

      Seems a bit old for Caroline. My guess would be the aunt. Her only other love interest was eaten by Damon and Vicki.

      • cmh

        He’s got to be younger than Damon. (However old he’s supposed to be to the real world).

    • Lily

      I don’t know why but even after the last Thursday’s episode, I don’t think Matt as a love interest for Caroline. Just can’t see this happening. I hope they stay just friends, nothing more.

      • Alley

        Totally agree Lily! Matt needs to become a werewolf but NO to a relationship with Caroline – I don’t find her character sympathetic at all. Too bad Damon didn’t have her for dinner.

      • Emily

        Matt becomes a werewolf? Is that in the books?

      • ash

        in the books tyler is the werewolf

      • Elle

        Why is there always a werewolf in these vampire novels? That kind of bugs me. First, Sookie Stackhouse novels, then Vampire Diaries and now Twilight. What is that about? Let me guess, the werewolf will be the vampire’s rival. So played.

      • Connie

        Actually, it goes as thus: First, The Vampire Diaries, then Sookie Stackhouse novels and now Twilight ;) And TVD didn’t have werewolves in the original trilogy, they were added with book four. But still, yeah u’re kinda right.

  • Ely

    he is sooooooo much hotter than that picture michael! i expect better… but ya im super excited.

  • Michael


    Sean Faris is BACK on TV?!?! I love this man. Life as We Know It, Reunion, Never Back Down?? Seen them all! I’m so gonna get over my hatred for the CW and watch this now!!

  • Emma

    YES. I agree with this so much.

  • David

    I think “Ben” should be a gay character. Sean Faris is hot, and I want to see him steam up the screen with Damon. Damon TOTALLY seems like the sexually open type. Let him play with the boys! Make it happen, writers. More homoeroticism.

    • Sarah

      Yes. A thousand times yes. Let Ian Somerhalder and Sean Faris steam up the screen together!

    • Phil

      AGREED! All the lesbo action on PrimeTime makes me vomit as a gay man….

      david i loveeeeee the way u think :-)

      • Steven

        I totally agree!

      • Kd

        I second that!

  • briggs313

    I had to sit through the film “Never Back Down” to see him and Cam Gigandet duke it out shirtless, and it was so worth sitting through the crappy plotline and writing … this is the best casting news ever!!

    • Tara

      Haha that movie was filmed at my high school.

  • redalert

    This is sooo AWESOME!! REUNION was my first TV addiction. Great to see 4 of the 6 cast are on TV:

    Dave Annabel- Brothers and Sisters
    Chyler Leigh- Grey’s Anatomy
    Amanda Righetti- The Mentalist
    Sean Faris- Vampire Diaries

    Awesome awesome awesome!!!

    PS. FOX I still hate you for cancelling Reunion

  • KTB

    Please let him fall for Bonnie, I love her character and I’m hoping we have a non-vampire love story in the future where death isn’t right around the corner for all parties involved

  • Michelle

    I watched Reunion (loved it) but I swear I can’t remember who Sean played. *hides*

    • martha

      he played the boyfriend/husband to the curly haired girl who had the baby girl at the end of high school with his best friend

    • xjeffie33x

      he’s the one that was in the wheelchair, to make it easier lol.

      • Michelle

        OH! *facepalm* Thanks y’all!

  • Briana

    Life. Is. Good.

  • Phil

    That picture is probably the first pic of Sean Faris that 1. I didn’t think was hot and 2. I had to actuallly read who was joining the cast. Michael PURGE that picture!!! It does the man NO justice! Do u not like Sean!? Why would u use such an awful picture?! He looks like a skinnier Michael Buble..

    • Katie

      Hey, don’t be hating on Michael Buble.

    • Katie R

      haha… @ Katie. I almost said the exact same thing. Katies think alike

  • Corey

    Is there much a thing as too pretty? Well, we all know is going to get killed now. I’ve never been a big fan of his (I’ve actually set through that sumber party flick)…

  • Tha Phoenix

    PLEASE make him and Bonnie get together, they’d make such a goodlooking couple…

    I still watch old episodes of Life As We Know It to see this guy…

    That was a kick-arse show; why cancel that and not shitty shows like Melrose Place?

  • martha

    i think he will be with elena. that would totally cause some tension in the show.
