Joseph Morgan is laughing off all the reports that he was cast in Fox’s upcoming X-Men series Gifted.
The mistake was made when a photo was posted of the “cast” and Joseph was in it because he happened to attend the table read.
“It was funny to see that unfold and to answer so many freaked-out phone calls,” Joseph told MTV.com. “I just did it as a favor to Bryan Singer and to Fox, coming in and reading. I met Bryan before, and I just felt like it would be a fun way to be involved in that world. I had no idea that [executive producer Lauren Shuler Donner] was going to take a photo and say, ‘Hey, this is the cast!’ It’s a great project, but obviously I’m busy. It was pretty funny to see all of the articles and then the retractions.”
Joseph is a big fan of the comics though. He added, “That’s why I wanted to at least go in and help out at the table read. But we’ll see what it will lead to.”
Klaus did a big thing for Caroline in the series finale of The Vampire Diaries…and it might just hint about his and their future on The Originals.
Speaking with MTV, Joseph Morgan gave us so many questions about that moment that we’d love to have answered right now.
“Does [the letter] mean he’s safe? Because he’s obviously written the letter some time in the future, so does that mean he survives the whole season?” he asked.
“Or is he writing it at some point in Season 4? The more you open that Pandora’s box, the harder it is to close it,” Joseph said.
All his questions about this make us wonder about it all.
IS this in season four, or season five, or even years beyond? And the most important one — why aren’t they together yet in that moment?
Guess, we’ll have to wait and see…we mean, Caroline Forbes is rumored to be coming to New Orleans sometime. Right?
Klaus Mikaelson is many, many things, but the one thing that Joseph Morgan hopes fans get really excited about this season is his relationship with daughter Hope.
“That’s been the most exciting part of the season for me, the most fun for me to play,” he revealed in a new interview. “The idea of this character meeting his daughter really for the first time, since she’s a speaking, thinking person now as opposed to a baby.”
Hope will be played by cutie Summer Fontana in the new season, which kicks off tomorrow.
Another thing that Joseph knows fans will love? “The introduction of the evil force, the Big Bad of the whole season, which happens in Episode 4, which is going to set the tone of the season.”
He added, “The last two minutes of Episode 4 are incredibly exciting. It’ll be interesting to see what people think after so much time away.”
Joseph Morgan is opening up about his character Klaus Mikaelson’s role in The Vampire Diaries finale!
The Originals star’s character had a very small, but important role in the finale, but Joseph shared with TooFab that he had no clue what was going to happen.
In the Vampire Diaries finale, Klaus gifted his ex Caroline with a $3 million donation for her Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted.
“I didn’t know about it before,” Joseph said. “I kind of expected they would do something, because, you know, leave no stone un-turned for the finale I guess. How much was the check?”
When Joseph learned about what Klaus did, he was in shock. “Oh wow, there you go!”
Along with the check, Klaus sent Caroline a super sweet note to his ex.
“Dear Caroline, I have often imagined the paths your life might take, but your chosen future is more noble than I ever fathomed. Please accept this contribution to your virtuous cause. I do look forward to thanking you in person, someday. However long it takes. Yours, Klaus.”
And you can let that deep breath you took yesterday out — Joseph Morgan is NOT leaving The Originals.
After a photo surfaced of Joseph at the first table read for Gifted (which might not be the official title anyhow), everyone freaked out just a little bit at the possibility that Joseph could be leaving the CW show.
However, that’s not the case at all.
According to EW, Joseph was just lending a helping hand and sitting in on the table read, likely reading lines for one or more characters who were not available to be there.
Woah, Joseph Morgan just got a new job!
The Originals star, who plays Klaus Mikaelson on the CW show, was pictured at Gifted‘s first table read on Friday (March 10).
X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner shared the news on her Twitter with a pic of the cast, which also includes Blair Redford, Jamie Chung and Natalie Alyn Lind.
This doesn’t mean that Joseph is actually leaving The Originals though, as we have no idea what his role is on Gifted anyhow.
It could very well be just a guest spot…either way, we can’t wait to find out more about it!
Our favorite The Vampire Diaries couple Klaus and Caroline might appear together another series!
Following the series finale of TVD, executive producer Julie Plec dropped some hints about future episodes of The Originals and another potential spinoff!
“Obviously our timelines did not match up, so Caroline and Klaus are not coming face to face in this season,” Julie told THR.
She added, “That being said, we do have crossover elements in the upcoming season of The Originals that’s about to start airing and it all brings it back to what I see as a future for either The Originals or another piece of the franchise to launch off of the end of The Originals. So I look forward to being able to play around in that sandbox and see if I can make something of it.”
We sure hope we get to see more of Klaus and Caroline in the future!
If you’re a fan of Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Caroline (Candice King) as a couple on The Vampire Diaries, rest assured that the writers won’t leave you hanging.
We recently caught up with executive producer Julie Plec, who confirmed that the fan-favorite couple Klaroline will be referenced in some way in the upcoming series finale.
“All I can say is…look, here’s the thing. There’s a lot of battling and warring in the shipping fandom over Caroline’s future and who she’s meant to be with,” Julie told us. “All we wanted to do was basically say, look, this was a relationship that was important to us too, so we’re not going to ignore it.”
Of course, this doesn’t mean Caroline is going to run off with Klaus. She is married to Stefan (Paul Wesley), after all. But it’s nice to know that the writers wanted to honor that relationship before all is said and done.
“We are fans of the show of the too, as writers, and we want to see each character and each relationship come to its proper end, however we want to define that,” Julie said. “And we thought long and hard about these decisions. We feel, as fans, we enjoy how it ends and we hope other people can see that too.”
The Vampire Diaries series finale airs Friday, March 10 @ 8PM on The CW.
