Deadline reports that “Vampire Diaries” star Matt Davis has been cast as the male lead in CW’s “Cult” pilot.
Davis is set to star opposite Jessica Lucas in the pilot, which WBTV co-produces with Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s Fake Empire.
Written by Rockne O’Bannon, “‘Cult’ centers on Skye (Lucas), an inquisitive young production assistant on a wildly popular television show called Cult. After a rash of disappearances and a likely murder, she joins Jeff (Davis), a journalist blogger whose brother was among those gone missing, in investigating the rabid fans of the series who might be re-creating crimes seen on the program in real life.”
In addition to starring in “Cult,” Davis will be available to make guest appearances in future seasons of “Vampire Diaries,” where he plays high school history teacher/vampire hunter Alaric Saltzman, though he will no longer be a regular.
