What business does a beloved ‘Alias’ alum have in Mystic Falls? Who is Cam’s new man? Is ‘Brothers & Sisters’ shedding a sibling? Here’s a round-up of the latest casting scoops out there.

SARK ATTACK: Fresh off his abruptly-ended ’24′ run, ‘Alias’ alum David Anders is joining ‘The Vampire Diaries‘ as Jonathan Gilbert, Elena and Jeremy’s trouble-making uncle, EW.com reports. (Of note, Joe Knezevich played a similarly named ancestor of Elena’s in a recent flashback.) Anders debuts sometime in April.

ADDITION SUBTRACTION: E! Online hears that ‘Brothers & Sisters‘ is in the process of phasing out the character of illegitimate Ryan Walker, who was introduced last season and played by Luke Grimes. “He didn’t really fit with the cast from the very beginning,” shares a source.

STRANGE LOVE: As teased last week by Fancast’s Big Tease column, ‘Bones‘ Cam is getting a man, and he’s a doctor no less. Now, EW is saying he’ll be played by Elon Gold (‘Stacked’). The potentially recurring role begins in April.
