In the good news category, though, iZombie, which stars John Gilbert himself, David Anders, was ordered to series. The show will be run by Veronica Mars guru, Rob Thomas. [HitFix]

Friday Night Bites is a weekly round-up for various tidbits of show and cast/crew news not quite big enough to warrant a blog post, not strictly Vampire Diaries-related, or that somehow just fell through the cracks. Please insert theme song by Explosions in the Sky here and enjoy.

The Vampire Diaries TV SeriesThanks to @CW_VampDiaries for the heads up on IESB’s exclusive interview with Steven R. McQueen (man, we feel a bit guilty for complaining about the lack of Steven press now…). It’s extensive and chock full o’great stuff, including his family’s acting legacy (and forging his own identity as an actor), and he reveals he also auditioned for the CW’s Melrose Place, the challenges of playing Jeremy and losing Kayla Ewell (Vicki), and his upcoming film, Piranha 3-D.

IESB: Was there any hesitation at all, in signing on to play a character that you could end up playing for a number of years?

Steven: Yeah, that was something that me and my agent talked about, but I thought it would be a good experience to learn and stick with a character for a long time, when previously I’ve only been a character for a short amount of time and then have to lose it. I wanted to learn to adapt a character over a long period of time, rather than keeping in the same place. Jeremy is constantly changing. In the beginning, he had all these drug issues and was rebelling against the world. All of a sudden, he had all of his pain and grief sucked out of him, and now he’s in a completely different mental place. It’s almost like I haven’t been playing the same character for a long amount of time, so I’ve enjoyed it.

Read the entire interview at IESB.

And photographer Tyler Shields has just posted photos and video from his shoot with upcoming Vampire Diaries guest star Sean Faris. Um, potentially NSFW, and your monitor/screen might melt – just a warning. Here’s a taster photo – click it to view the rest on Tyler’s website. Let him know what you think as you fan yourself.

The Vampire Diaries TV SeriesTV Guide has a chat with Ian Somerhalder about what’s on everyone’s mind: the issue of Damon, Elena, and Katherine, and what happens when/if Katherine comes back into the picture.

Damon isn’t always upbeat, though. Somerhalder teased an upcoming episode of the CW series (Thursdays at 8/7c) in which he’s anguished. “I had to shoot a scene where Damon was not happy at all. … and my whole day was shot because I was miserable. Normally I walk around set laughing and joking, pulling pranks on people and just screwing with everyone. [Paul Wesley, who plays Stefan] is always so intense, because he’s got so much going on in his mind. I thought, whoa, that’s heavy.”

Read the entire interview at TV Guide.

MTV’s Hollywood Crush talks to Steven R. McQueen about his careers thus far, road tripping with his fellow cast-mates, and his first true taste of the Vampire Diaries hype:

Since Atlanta is pretty far removed from Hollywood, Steven said that the cast felt a completely different taste of their newfound fame when they went back to L.A. for the winter holidays. “In Atlanta we don’t really feel the hype, but going back to LA, I’ll tell you it was crazy. We’d just be in random places and people would just start running up and crying. It was very surreal. It’s a little intimidating, but it was cool.”

Read the entire interview at MTV.

Parade chats with Sara Canning about what’s next for Jenna, the supernatural, and how The Vampire Diaries has carved its own niche in the vampire genre:

“When I did the pilot, I knew, of course, that there was a huge vampire fascination right now, but I guess we weren’t really sure how the show would be received. But it’s developed so well with its own fans. I think a lot of people thought, ‘Okay, this is just going to be another Twilight.’ But Vampire Diaries has a very specific group of fans who are not only interested in the vampire thing, but also the characters on the show and the storylines.”

Read the entire interview at Parade.

Guest star Sean Faris makes his debut on tonight’s episode, Unpleasantville, and Betty Confidential isn’t able to get much out of him other than some insight into who he’ll be playing, but he also talks his recent Men’s Health cover, his cooking, and his idea of the perfect date:

Tell us about your character Ben on The Vampire Diaries.
Ben is a former star football player at the town’s high school and he didn’t really do much with his life, so while his other friends moved on he got stuck in Mystic Falls. He discovers the beautiful Bonnie (Katerina Graham) and they start to hang out for a little bit. I can’t really tell you anything beyond that or I’d get in trouble.

The Vampire Diaries TV SeriesVampire Diaries TV recapper Carina MacKenzie’s interview with Nina Dobrev is up at the LA Times. They cover a lot of ground, from auditioning, living in Atlanta, and leaving Degrassi, to her inspiration behind Katherine, Elena’s discovery about her resemblance to Katherine in The Turning Point, and what fans can expect in upcoming episodes. (She also divulges her favorite episode so far.)

You’ve got a rare opportunity as an actress to be able to play two characters in one show and explore the different ways that Elena and Katherine interact with the brothers. Is there anything that Elena and Katherine have in common?

At this point, I don’t think so. At one point, Stefan describes Katherine and then he talks to someone else about Elena, and he points out their differences. Katherine was very conniving, she was narcissistic, she acted out of her own benefit and for her own selfish needs. She used these two boys as her toys. They were toys for her, and she had a lot of fun with them. I’m so lucky — I just love this show.

Read the entire interview.

Digital Spy’s Tube Talk has posted their own interview with Nina, where she gives her thoughts on Elena’s future, her relationship with Stefan, and pulling double duty in playing both Elena and Katherine. Check out the piece and watch the interview below:

Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello just posted an exclusive first look at the January 28th episode of The Vampire Diaries, which we still believe to be called Unpleasantville (EP12). (Click image to see it in the Gallery.)

[The Jan. 28 episode] finds Stefan, Elena, Bonnie, Caroline, and Damon converging on the high school for a ’50s-themed dance.

The Vampire Diaries, Unpleasantville

Read what else Ausiello has to say over at EW.

And big thanks to Nina Dobrev for posting our first look at recurring guest star Sean Faris (who will be playing Mystic Falls bartender Ben) on the set of Vampire Diaries. Nina says he’s a “really cool cat.”

Remember that poll we mentioned a while back? The one that ruffled so many feathers with its “Second-Hottest Vampire” designation (assuming RPattz was number one)? Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley were included and, well, the results are in – as voted by readers (click the screenshot to go to's Second Hottest Vampire: Paul Wesley

Awards Show Network has followed up their interviews with Candice Accola and Katerina Graham with a brief Nina Dobrev chat:

Speaking of the Vampire Diaries ladies – the new issue of InStyle magazine features a two-page spread with Nina, Candice, Katerina, and Kayla Ewell. And the Jan/Feb issue of Men’s Health has future recurring guest star Sean Faris on its cover. (Thanks to @sabinetbfl and @Joselito4390 for the heads up.) And don’t forget to watch for Paul, Nina, and Ian on the February 2010 NYLON cover.

Thanks to book cover maven Lorraine of L.J. Smith Cover Resource, we now have some much better scans of Brazil’s The Struggle and the U.K. omnibus covers for The Awakening & The Struggle and The Fury & Dark Reunion. Click the images below to see bigger version in the Gallery.

Sean FarisAccording to the Ausiello Files, Sean Faris has been cast to play a new character named Ben, an ex-high school football star-turned-bartender at the Mystic Grill. It makes sense, because we don’t see Sheriff Forbes letting the last one out of lock-up for quite some time after serving drinks to minors in last week’s episode.

“He’s Matt’s buddy,” says a Vampire insider. “He gets entangled in the group when a broke Matt takes a job at the Mystic Grill.”

The Vamp source also hints at a possible romance between Ben and one of the show’s females. But which one? Let the speculation begin in the comments!

Vampire Diaries Online has an interview with Katerina Graham. The interview was conducted with the ever-awesome Ms. Graham by Kaylie Rodrigues for her school newspaper. There’s a whole lot of interesting stuff in there for Katerina Graham fans, from Bonnie and the Vampire Diaries to more personal topics of conversation. Head on over and check it out.

People Magazine has a fun little feature: 100 Sexy Men in 1 Minute. Mostly notable for the fact that Vampire Diaries‘ Mr. Somerhalder and Mr. Wesley both feature it in, but it’s also a bit of fun naming everyone who flashes by while trying to avoid a bout of motion sickness caused by the speed of some of the images. ;)

Finally, we have a scheduled release date for the TV series tie-in cover of Dark Reunion. Like The Fury, no cover yet, but you can get your paws on it on the 25th May, 2010.
