We don’t know much about The Vampire Diaries newcomer, the “scary-hot” Connor. E! Online reports the vampire hunter will arrive in Mystic Falls early in Season 4, and he can wield some weapons. Since it’s summer, and we have nothing to do but speculate, we’re offering some choices on who TVD should cast for the role of Connor. Disagree with our picks? Let us know in the comments.

Jason Dohring: We want the erstwhile Veronica Mars to be in everything, and now that Ringer has been cancelled, he’s free to hunt vampires. Plus, he once played a vampire in the short-lived Moonlight.

Henry Cavill: The future Man of Steel might be a tad busy, but he knows Joseph Morgan (Klaus) from his recent turn in Immortals. Get on the phone, J.Morg!

Max Irons: Jeremy Irons’s extremely attractive offspring Max certainly has the looks to fit right in in Mystic Falls. The only thing holding him back from slaying some vamps? Two upcoming movies: The Host and Vivaldi.

Taylor Kitsch: While Savages seems poised to be a hit, Mr. Kitsch has had lousy luck at the box office recently. Come back to TV, Taylor! We’ll never reject you.

Diego Boneta: ABC Family loves to supply The CW with its talent pool, and this ex-Pretty Little Liar can bring his dreamy eyes to TVD anytime. Better snap him up before his recent Rock of Ages appearance turns him into a giant star…

Dave Franco: Little brother to James, Dave hasn’t had quite the success of his full-of-feelings sibling, but staking the undead on TVD could change all that.

Hunter Parrish: Now that Weeds is in its final season, someone needs to give Hunter Parrish a job. He’s too cute not to be on our televisions. Plus, his name is Hunter. Kismet.
