Most people would be disappointed to learn their character was being killed off. For The Vampire Diaries' Matt Davis, it was a blessing in disguise.
Just call Billy Grimm the Pied Piper of Cult.
On the new CW series, premiering Monday, Feb 17 at 8/7c, Robert Knepper plays actor Roger Reeves who is playing cult leader Billy Grimm on the show-within-the-show called Cult. Matt Davis stars as Jeff, a journalist who is prompted to...

Can a meta show be too meta? The creator of Cult, which features a show within the show, hopes that answer is no.
The new CW series stars Vampire Diaries alum Matt Davis as Jeff, a journalist who is prompted to investigate the rabid fans of a show called Cult when his brother goes missing. Jessica Lucas plays an inquisitive production assistant on the show whom he teams up with during his search. The series leads viewers to sometimes question if they're watching the "inside" show -- which stars Robert Knepper as cult leader Billy Grimm and Alona Tal as the cop searching for him --or the "outside" show which follows Jeff. The executive producer of the inside show, Stephen Rae, is also mysteriously labeled as the executive producer of the outside show that the audience is watching.

The Vampire Diaries hunk Matt Davis will soon be back on your TV!
Cult will premiere...
The Vampire Diaries has added one more vampire.
Elena met her fate in the Season 3 finale after her fateful trip over Wickery Bridge left her on a slab in the morgue. But don't worry: She will be back next season, along with her portrayer, Nina Dobrev, who joined the rest of the cast and executive producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson at their Comic-Con panel, moderated by TV Guide Magazine's Debra Birnbaum, on Saturday dish about the upcoming season. (Turns out, Elena was supposed to become a vampire in Season 2, so this has been a long time coming!)
Comic-Con is just around the corner, and on Wednesday, Warner Bros. released their full 2012 lineup for the international geekfest held each summer in San Diego.
When The Vampire Diaries returns for Season 4, the friendship between Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline (Candice Accola) that fans have been clamoring for will finally be further explored.
"I always look at Caroline as Stefan's future [best friend] Lexi [Arielle Kebbel]," executive producer Julie Plec said during this weekend's ATX Television Festival panel, moderated by this reporter. "You've seen little pockets of a friendship spark between them, and I see Caroline in the long run of the series becoming that important in Stefan's life."
KNOPE CAN DO! On a thoroughly charming Parks and Recreation finale, eternal idealist Leslie Knope achieves her lifelong dream of being voted into office — and Amy Poehler captures every nail-biting emotion, from overwhelmed pride at casting a vote for herself to premature despair, an ultimately genuine joy and gratitude to all the friends who made this possible. Her opponent Bobby Newport isn't the only one who's relieved — and geez, show, Paul Rudd is such an adorable boob (the way he stares at a boom mike like it's a chew toy), can't he stick around as a mascot or something? Pawnee City Council may not be Washington, D.C. (where Ben appears to be heading, casting a long-distance pall over the celebration), and a 21-vote margin of victory isn't much of a mandate, but who cares when you have friends like a whisky-laden Ron Swanson, who tells Leslie when she's down that the team rallied to her cause because "that's what you do when you care about someone: You support 'em win, lose or draw." Awww.
"I just want you to know that I'll always be here to look after you, Jeremy. You'll never be alone, OK, I promise."
Those were the final words The Vampire Diaries' Alaric Saltzman (Matt Davis) uttered to Jeremy who realized he was saying goodbye to his former teacher, default guardian and now ghost.
