The Originals Matt Cedeño

The Originals Casts Days' Matt Cedeño as Shadow From the Mikaelsons' Past

As if the Mikaelsons weren’t already up to their perfect jawlines in unwelcome guests, here comes another one.

Matt Cedeño (Devious Maids, Days of Our Lives) will arrive in Episode 15 of The Originals‘ current season, TVLine has learned, playing a “callous, smart and manipulative vampire from the Mikaelsons’ past who comes to New Orleans seeking vengeance.”

“Cortez is someone who was sired by a unique circumstance,” executive producer Michael Narducci tells TVLine. “He has a very interesting perspective, particularly on Klaus. He’s of Klaus’ sire line, but he was not sired by Klaus. He’s a very intriguing character, one of the most dangerous folks we’ve met.”

The Originals returns with new episodes on Friday, Jan. 29 at 9/8c on The CW. Drop a comment with your thoughts on Cedeño’s casting below.

    Too many characters on this show now.

  2. Another guy out for vengeance with magical stuff about Klaus. It’s so repetitive. Though that probably gets him screentime, since anyone not attached to Klaus seems to fall to the sides, and only used sparingly.

  3. Ian says:

    He hot tho.
    Kinda wish Power had used him more though. Not too big a fan of The Originals these days.

  4. Mak says:

    Yes Please…a show can never have too many beautiful people. Can’t wait!

  5. amber says:

    and white nola gets whiter!!!

    also 10$ he stays relevant for a ep and then gets showed in the background cause the writers wanna play out the same tired storylines….Again

  6. Katie says:

    Hmm, I wonder under what special circumstance he was turned? I’m looking forward to it. The more enemies, the more interesting it becomes for me. I want to see how Klaus will tangle with not only this guy, but also The Strix, psycho b**** Aurora, Elijah daggering Rebekah, Cami’s “death” and that’s only half of it! But I’m curious about everyone else, too, especially Vincent, now that Tristian is holding Freya’s amulet over his head to keep him under The Strix’s control. Though, I seriously doubt Vincent will take too much of it before he unleashed hell on the vamps and anyone else that ticks him off. With all the hints that are coming from TO camp, January 29th can’t come fast enough. Bring it on!

    What a looker! Can anybody just come to NOLA just to party?

  8. Honey Jackson says:

    He’s handsome, in a sexy bad vamp way,hope he lights a,”fire” on which female???TO needs some new “bad blood”anyway(actors)& pls.,get rid of the stryx,especially sister dear,who slashed Camis’throat,and I hope Klaus gets revenge,and pls don’t let Cami be dead!Klaus & her just got a moment of happiness!Not fair!

  9. Valerie Mendez says:

    The writers for The Originals truly need to have the character Klaus show his full wolf form, it would be so so so so wicked maybe oneday. Cami being a vampire is going to be interesting to watch. I like the character Aurora, it’s going to be sad when Klaus or maybe Cami , herself
    kills her.

  10. ogboru emmanuel says:

    let klaus kill auora because she is the one bringing the prophesy to past.

  11. Valerie A. Mendez says:

    Now that Klaus’s sire line is broken, Can’t wait to see the side effects on Klaus and the rest of the vampires have. Yes they will be comin hu out of the woodwork after him. I truly hope that the writers come up with a good story line, Bring his sociopath, untrusting, devilish smile,always two steps ahead manipulative self BACK!!!!!!

  12. Honey Jackson says:

    Oh,well! I always like seeing another sexy “vamp” on TO,but this was the shortest “love affair”,ever!LOL!Too bad,He was sexy!
