Paul Wesley joins CBS All Access' Tell Me a Story, reuniting with Vampire Diaries co-creator
Wesley will co-star on the psychological thriller that reimagines the world's most beloved fairy tales from Kevin Williamson, co-creator of The Vampire Diaries and creator of Dawson's Creek. Wesley, in his first regular TV role since The CW series ended last year, joins Danielle Campbell, former star of Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals, Billy Magnussen and Kim Cattrall. According to Deadline, Wesley will play "Eddie, a derelict and troubled individual whose petulance is fueled even more by his problems with drugs and alcohol. Although he works as a bartender, he also splits his time as a low-level drug dealer and part-time thief with his older brother Mitch, who never fails to treat Eddie as the lowly delinquent that he is."
