Chris Zylka is about to get wrapped up in The Secret Circle's coven, TVGuide.com has learned.

The Secret Circle: No crossovers with The Vampire Diaries

Based on the novels by L.J. Smith, the upcoming series centers on orphaned Cassie (Britt Robertson), who returns to her family's hometown to discover she is a member of a covert coven — including Phoebe Tonkin's Faye and  Thomas Dekker's Adam. Zykla will play Billy, a chiseled and charming neighbor of Cassie, who also has a romantic history with Faye and is quite the foil to Adam.
