Vampire Diaries Recruits Supernatural's Sebastian Roche to Hunt Klaus

Sebastian Roche is done being an angel on Supernatural and is setting his sights on another CW series — The Vampire Diaries.

Roche will appear in a recurring role as “a very mysterious man who appears to be hunting vampires, most specifically Klaus,” reports EW.com.

Not to be confused with new addition Bill (played by Heroes‘ Jack Coleman), who comes to town to point out the Council’s failings, Roche’s character will be a source of concern for the powerful Klaus.

“He is big, and he is bad, but I would dare not say if he is the true Big Bad or not, trademark Joss Whedon,” Plec tells EW.com. “If you’ve learned anything from the Whedonverse seasonal-structuring school like we have, then there might be some bigger and badder people coming [later].”

Roche’s Supernatural character, Balthazar, met a bloody end at the hands of Castiel last season.

Season 3 of The Vampire Diaries premieres Sept. 15.

    I think he will make a great addition. Sebastian Roche is great at playing a Baddie.

  2. David F. says:

    This guy appears in every single one of my shows: Fringe, Supernatural, Criminal Minds, and now The Vampire Diaries.

    He’s an excellent actor, and I hope he sticks around for a while.

  3. Linda says:

    We never saw Balthazar’s wings so I’m holding out hope he’s not gone for good from Supernatural. :P

  4. megan says:

    Um.. I can not express how much I love this casting. LOVE LOVE LOVE him. Can’t wait for the new season even more now!

  5. Captain says:

    Umm, hello? He’ll always be General Hospital’s Jerry Jacks. THAT is his definitive (and best known) role.

  6. Saracen Riggins says:

    Definitely recognize him from Fringe, which definitely makes me excited.

  7. Amy says:

    Well if I can’t have him in Superntural, I’m happy I’ll get him in the Vampire Diaries! Hooray!

  8. qeee says:

    Good casting, Like someone said he’s been in alot of my fave. shows GH, Supernatural & Fringe. Excited!!

  9. TheDude says:

    Klaus sucks. Not a pun. He just sucks. Hope Balthazar gets to kill him, and QUCIKLY.

  10. Dean says:

    Best casting scoop for season 3 so far. Now TVD just needs to cast Mark Sheppard and Mark Pellegrino. Those two and Sebastian Roche have guest starred in almost every show imaginable.

    • Vanessa says:

      I’m convinced Mark Sheppard’s going to be one of the Originals. They’re ‘English-ish’ and have ambiguous morals after all.

  11. Hana says:

    I truly am regretful that he was killed off of Fringe.

  12. Jamie says:

    Awesome! This guy was fantastic on Supernatural.

  13. Guess says:

    He was AMAZING in Fringe!

  14. Sivat says:

    Joss Whedon reference? A+, Julie!

    I liked Sebastian on GH.

    • Dom says:

      Who doesn’t love a good Whedonverse reference? I love that the TVD showrunners learned a few things from Joss because he has been behind some of my all-time favorite television. Sebastian does such a great job in everything he does and I’m sure he won’t disappoint.

  15. Adriaan says:

    Man was amazing in Fringe! Looking forward to TVD season 3!

  16. jakeydood says:

    Anyone else think he looks like Gordon Ramsay?

  17. O says:

    So happy about this! I really like him!!

  18. Shannon says:

    Sebastion Roche AND Jack Coleman! That makes an awesome show so much more awesome!!!!!

  19. Shar says:

    OHHH NOOOO come back to FRINGE!!!!!!! VD ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww

  20. Melanie says:

    Yaaay!! Loved Balty on Supernatural — looking forward to TVD even more now!

  21. Jamie says:

    OMG, so excited to see him on TVD! He was so deliciously bad on GH as Jerry Jax and so entertaining to watch as Balthazar on SPN. Season 3 is shaping up to be really awesome so far.
