ClevverTV has a new video from The Vampire Diaries 100th Episode Celebration party, where TVD actors; including Joseph Morgan, Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Phoebe Tonkin, Paul Wesley, Steven R. McQueen and more, are put to the test and have to tell which character said a certain line in the show.
You can see Joseph twice from 3:00 on.
Joseph Morgan yesterday (November 9) attended The Vampire Diaries 100th episode celebration in Atlanta, GA. “Thank you Vampire Diaries for changing my life and stuff ,” the actor tweeted.
More photos will be added as soon as they’re out.

While promoting The Originals in New York city this September, Joseph also visited Entertainment Weekly, where he was invited in to different staffers’ offices to see what he’d like to steal from them.
The actor admit he wants what his former protégé-turned-rival Marcel has. “I’ve been trying to get Julie [Plec] to let me wear a vest for two years. It’s a British thing. I just like the idea of it. What I would call a waistcoat. And then one of Marcel’s henchmen, his right-hand man Thierry [Callard Harris], shows up — vest in every scene. And my thing was, Klaus has a few necklaces. From the beginning I’ve done that. And then I’m like, ‘Here’s Charles Michael Davis with a cool necklace. But not only that, leather wristbands.’ And he looks like he spends every day in the gym. On the backdoor pilot, my stand-in was this sort of weedy-looking white guy. Charles Michael Davis’ stand-in was this hugely buff guy. I was like, ‘Look, this is how they see us. These two guys together.’” However Joseph got a new stand-in when the show’s filming moved to Atanta: “Now my stand-in’s too handsome,” he says, laughing. “He’s like a younger, more handsome version of me. Now I’m intimidated by my stand-in. I’ve been shot in the foot.”
Assistant Managing Editor Dalton Ross’ office
On the way here, we make an unscheduled stop in TV critic Melissa Maerz’s vacant office, where Morgan gets momentarily lost in the former music critic’s CD collection before joking that he’d take her ”antique,” an old Samsung television set, and “throw it through a window to demonstrate how rock ‘n’ roll I am.” We arrive in Dalton’s spacious abode. Initially tempted by the whiteboard walls (“You could have a lot of fun with those,” says the artist), Morgan’s a big fan of The Walking Dead, which Dalton covers, so he makes a beeline to the box showing the small replica of the Governor’s zombie head tank that accompanies the special edition season 3 Blu-ray. He’s disappointed when he finds the tank missing from its box. But then he spots it on the coffee table. “It’s here!” he says. “But where are the heads though?” He’s dejected again when he sees that Dalton hasn’t yet assembled it. Luckily, the season 2 set only requires you to put a screwdriver through the eye of a zombie — just like Andrea did in Dale’s RV. Picture time.
You can view more photos, and have a good laugh while following his short trip at Entertainment Weekly.

Joseph and the rest of The Originals cast attended 2013 Summer TCA Party 2 days ago. Some HQ photos have already been added to our gallery.
Yesterday the cast also attended a panel where they talked the upcoming spinoff.
On Vampire Diaries, Klaus is often seen as the most villainous character in Mystic Falls — and when he arrives in New Orleans, he’s overpowered by his former mentee Marcel. The shift for Klaus is a change even for the actors.
“We’re used to Klaus coming in with a bull in a china shop mentality,” Morgan said, “dominating like a one-man army but Marcel has an army of vampires. He has the numbers. He’s running the city and he has the witches under his control. I don’t really know what his secret weapon he possesses is but he has all the magic in the city and all of his inner circle of daywalkers and nightwalkers …. He’s going to have to employ a little bit of his backstabbing methods to get where he wants to be to take back the throne.”
Added Charles Michael Davis: “Plus, Marcel is a really popular guy in New Orleans. I don’t think you earn any points for killing the most popular guy.”
Plec talked about the differences between The Originals and TVD, joking that it’s like “We graduated high school and went to college.” College of course being a metaphor for New Orleans, where Morgan said, “It’s like the lost boys . . . party all night and sleep all day.” Both Plec and Morgan asserted that this show embraces being a vampire, rather than struggling with the guilt of it, like we often see on The Vampire Diaries. Happily, Morgan promised “vampire parties” and “crazy indulgence.” Bring it on!
Some of the live tweets during the panel:

It’s been a while. How are you all doing?
I’d like to post an update about the hiatus and quickly go through everything Joseph has been up to lately.
Three weeks ago I announced a short site break. Two weeks with a group of 9 kids (aged from 5-10) passed way too quickly. After 2 days home (that I of course wasted sleeping), I was on the road again. Yesterday, I finally got back home and before I could even start unpacking, I had to fill my suitcase with clothes for another week at the seaside. Anyway, I don’t want to give any more promises saying the website will be updated in a week. It might take another week, month or maybe just a few days. If I get wifi in a country I’m going to tomorrow, I’ll try to update everything from there. Thanks for all your lovely e-mails and messages! Made me smile so big.
Now let’s go though everything new…
• As you probably know, Joseph attended Comic Con International in San Diego last weekend. He was there with The Originals cast and attended two panels, TV Guide’s Fan Favorites panel on Friday and The Originals panel on Saturday.
More interviews can be found bellow.
• Luke Massey’s film we are all crazily excited for has changed its name from ‘Warhouse’ to ‘Armistice’. They can now be found on twitter under @ArmisticeMovie. And that’s not all – new poster has been revealed (pictured right)! The colours are breath-taking.
• Do you wish you could just fast-forward the time and stop in October? Well, Comic Con trailer for The Originals spinoff is now online. Do you like it?
• Joseph worried that no one would show up for the show’s panel at Comic-Con. Yes, that’s right. Joe told TV.com he was asking himself “Is anyone going to show up?” before the panel.
• Video: The Originals’ cast feels like a family.
• Filming for Dermaphoria has wrapped. Major Dodson, who plays a younger version of JoMo in the movie shared: “So honored to have played the younger version of Joseph Morgan as Young Eric Ashworth in Dermaphoria.” Joseph has recently been spotted on The Originals set again.
Guess who made it to the TV Guide’s ‘Sexiest Superhuman Characters’ list? Bingo!
• Can Klaus be a good dad? Find out what JoMo thinks at Digital Spy.
Some videos from Comic Con:
I have been collecting photos whenever I was home so I believe I have most of them saved on my laptop already. As much as I’d love to upload them now, I’m leaving for vacation in 4h and still have to finish packing, so I’ll leave that for the next time.
Thanks again for all your support.
