‘The Vampire Diaries’ spoilers: Michael Trevino excited for new ‘role’

Expect a different side of Tyler.

Even though Michael Trevino will technically still be playing the character of Tyler Lockwood when “The Vampire Diaries,” there is going to be a rather nice twist to it — Tyler will be possessed by Klaus during at least the early portion of the season.

So what does Trevino think about the twist? Speaking out in a brand-new interview with TV Guide, the actor certainly sounds more than excited about the challenge of taking on this role:

“I’d like to take a crack at playing Klaus. I think it would be fun … Joseph Morgan could take a break.”

Executive producer Julie Plec has already suggested that she would like to see Morgan return to the show in some capacity, but the show will have to explain first how Klaus’ body ends up being salvaged following the burning during the season finale. Before that happens, though, we expect all sorts of ratings confusion when it comes to Caroline — who is probably going to believe that her boyfriend is suddenly very charming in an Old World sense.

Are you excited to see what happens with Tyler now that he is possessed? Check back all summer — we’re going to have plenty more in the way of “TVD” scoop!
