Smith will play a brooding vampire named Keith in the HBO drama, our sister site Deadline reports, and will immediately become infatuated with none other than Arlene Fowler-Bellefleur.
In addition to romancing Bon Temps’ newest bar owner, Keith will also be the drummer in fellow vampire James’ band. (Former Bunheads bartender Nathan Parsons recently took over the role of James, following Luke Grimes’ exit.)
After recurring on 90210 in its final season, Smith later appeared in Beauty and the Beast. He will next be seen in Nicholas Sparks’ Deliverance Creek on Lifetime.
