The Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals has found Klaus' protege.

The Game vet Charles Michael Davis will play Marcel, one of the starring roles in The CW's backdoor pilot slated to air April 25, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

In The Originals, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) returns to the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans, a town he helped build centuries ago, and is reunited with his diabolical former protege Marcel (Davis).
