TV Guide has the exclusive scoop on the casting of Klaus’s brothers Finn and Kol:
British actor Caspar Zafar (La Femme Muskateer) and Australian actor Nathaniel Buzolic (Out of the Blue) have been tapped to play the recurring roles of Finn and Kol, respectively, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively. Both brothers have a bone to pick with Klaus (Joseph Morgan), especially since they’ve been locked up in those coffins Klaus has been carting around for so long.
The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, Jan. 5 at 8/7c on The CW. Zafar and Buzolic will first appear in Episode 13.

According to E!Online Spoiler Chat Kristin Dos Santos, someone new is coming to Mystic Falls:
hezzy76: oh for the love of all things hot please anything vampire diaries!
You want hot? Then hot is what you shall get! The show is currently looking for a handsome, tall and physically imposing guy to take on the possibly recurring role of Finn (Glee shout-out?!). While he’s quiet, Finn does have a dark side. Any casting suggestions! Hit us up in the comments!
Thanks to the ever amazing EricandSookieLovers.com for the heads up. Two new characters that will be recurring for season 5 and possibly beyond have been announced:
Kelly Overton (The Ring Two) and Louis Herthum (The Last Exorsism) have landed major recurring roles on the HBO vampire drama True Blood. Overton has been booked for 6 episodes and Herthum has been tapped for 5. I hear that the deals for both include series regular options for next season. Overton, repped by Innovative Artists, will play a dirty, beautiful werewolf named Rikki who demands to know what’s become of the pack leader. Herthum, repped by Main Title and Progressive Artists, will play a particularly large Marine-type werewolf who refuses to bow down before the new pack leader.
