The actor will play a werewolf named Ray Sutton on the first two episodes of The Vampire Diaries this fall, TVLine reports. And since nothing runs smoothly in the fang-centric drama, he'll of course encounter trouble in the form of Klaus (Joseph Morgan) while in Tennessee. Only two episodes? Let's hope he doesn't meet an untimely end!
Gallagher, 26, recently played the camera shop employee who loved good times and the older sister of Charles (Riley Griffiths) in this J.J. Abrams' big-screen action flick Super 8.
The Vampire Diaries stakes returns for Season 3 on Thursday, Sept. 15 at 8/7c.
