Courtesy of the CW, we have another new clip from this week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, Family Ties, and it’s all Salvatores and suits.
First up, a reminder: Michael Trevino will be guesting on Buzzworthy Radio tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET. The call-in number is (646) 595-4228. Jasmine Guy will be on Stardish Radio 8 p.m. ET, and that call-in number is (347) 945-5423. They’ll both be answering fan questions, so start thinking of what you want to know about Tyler and Grams – maybe there will be some goodies, eh?
Friday Night Bites is now available for your viewing pleasure on the official CW Vampire Diaries page. (USA only.)
We have a title for episode 8 (#107) – you can check it out in the Episode Index. The episode is written by Barbie Kligman and Gabrielle Stanton, and stepping in for directing duties this time around is Rick Bota. Bota’s credits include Jericho, Raising the Bar, and Close to Home.
Seems Logan isn’t the only Fell hanging around Mystic Falls – we have a Franklin Fell making an appearance, played by Jackson Walker. We’re not sure of his relation to Logan, but there be Fells! That sound you hear is our squee button being pushed – even though the Animal Control van is always there to remind us not to get too attached to various characters. “Anyone, anytime, anyplace” – right?
Michael Trevino will be sitting in with BuzzWorthy Radio LIVE on Monday, September 28th, 7:30 p.m. ET.
Michael Trevino, Tyler from The CW’s Vampire Diaries, will be making an appearance on BuzzWorthy Radio next week… Hear Trevino speak about his role on the series as well as take calls and questions from fans.

They also have yet another interview with Paul at Comic Con. He doesn’t really say much new here, but for posterity’s sake:

UPDATE: CW release – The CW’s new hit The Vampire Diaries to competition: bite me! (Emphasis ours. Heh.)

As the post headline suggests, we’d like to keep comments in general feedback territory. For spoiler-friendly discussion, head to the forum! (You’ll need to register, but it takes two seconds.)
Told you guys we were going to work the American football terminology into the ground. Sorry, it had to be done. (Sadly, the graphics didn’t quite work out, so no little footballs with bite marks. Awww.) TOUCHDOWN! = LOVE. PENALTY! = MEH.
This, ladies and gents, is what we call a tease. E! Online has an exclusive clip from tonight’s episode, Friday Night Bites:
NYLON’s The Insider has a Q&A with Candice where she talks Twilight and True Blood comparisons, being a Japanese pop star, what Vampire Diaries‘ blood tastes like (Nina says it tastes like pancakes), and Caroline Forbes:
I know you can’t talk too much about your character yet, since you don’t want to give anything away, but your manager told me she’s like the Spawn of Satan?
She’s not the Spawn of Satan! No! She’s just misunderstood! Seriously, she’s just got a lot going on. And I love playing her. The lines I get to say, you know, it’s fun to be sassy or unapologetically conniving and manipulative.
Katerina will be sitting with Star Dish Radio tonight to talk about her film/TV/music career and playing Bonnie Bennett on Vampire Diaries. It’s a live interview set to begin at 10 p.m. ET. If you have a question you’re dying to ask her, the call-in number is (347) 945-5423.
Ian talks to New York Mag’s Vulture about Vampire Diaries and Lost:
What was it like for you the first time you saw yourself in the vampire makeup?
It’s a lot of fun because the second that the eyes and the teeth go in, I become a complete different person, and there, all of a sudden, seems to be this license to do things and manipulate people and be somewhat scary. And it’s kind of powerful at times, especially with the lighting and everything. I mean, I notice on set when I have all this makeup on, some of the other cast members are definitely affected by the look of it. It’s a simple look, but it’s very specific and it looks very real, very natural.
