If you’ve ever seen Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Cool Hand Luke, or The Color of Money, then you are aware of legendary actor Paul Newman. Well, starting in Season 3, Episode 11, “Our Town,” his grandson Daniel Newman (One Tree Hill, Heroes) will be joining the Mystic Falls crew on The Vampire Diaries. Newman will play Daniel Warren, a mysterious stranger.

We know how well mysterious strangers usually fare on TVD, and considering Newman has roles in The Great Gatsby and The Dark Knight Rises coming up, it seems unlikely that this newcomer will be cooling his heels at the Grill for long.
