Vampire Diaries 2010 Spoilers: David Anders To Join The Show As Elena & Jeremy's Uncle

David Anders is becoming one of the most versatile villains in primetime as the Alias star has completed recent stints on both Heroes and 24.

He is poised to join The Vampire Diaries on April 15 and will play Elena and Jeremy’s uncle, Jonathan Gilbert. He comes into the show to sign the escrow papers for his brother’s office but isn’t quite ready to give it away to his nephew and niece.

Executive producer Kevin Williamson says that he is clearly in Mystic Falls for other reasons and that his “intentions are not pure.”
