"I get a little bit jealous that Damon’s kind of the bad boy. When Elena picks Damon, it’s like, he’s so bad, but so good. Meanwhile, Stefan is kind of like the stable, good guy. Personally, I don’t like that because I’m not that in real life. But, at the same time, Stefan has proven himself to be pretty erratic. I absolutely went bonkers when I got to play Ripper Stefan. It was like a dream come true to play Stefan as a dark, malicious guy. Saint Stefan can be great, as long as he’s flawed. I like when he breaks the rules every once in a while."

Paul Wesley wants to be bad.

Lots of people have been talking about a potential spin-off, which we’d all love to do. Claire [Holt], Joseph [Morgan] and I have talked about it. This family is so uniquely creepy, and the writers are slowly starting to humanize them and make them into truly compelling characters. I’ve always said that it would be neat to watch an R-rated version of this family, kind of like ‘The Sopranos.’ I see them as gangsters living in some sort of corporate vampire world, living in New York. There would be swearing and violence and all sorts of mischief. Forget ‘True Blood,’ this would be the best show ever.

Please make this happen.

Matt just gets too close to Elena, when she’s obviously supposed to be with a vampire.

Yeah, and also, the only way that you could have a love story line with Matt and have it be exciting is if it was with some other crazy vampire, and Matt just decides, “To hell with it. Let’s see what I’ve been missing.” He’s going to have a crazy wild time because at this point, on our show, two humans doing it missionary style is just not going to be exciting.

"Caroline and Tyler. The writers have already come out to the press saying that they’re really comparing it to Romeo and Juliet’s love story, which is very very sweet and very romantic and thrilling, but they die at the end, which doesn’t sound very exciting for Michael and myself in keeping a job! So, hopefully it’s not too Romeo and Juliet."

— the very lovely Candice Accola talking to my colleague about Caroline and Tyler. OMG you guys.

"[Stefan & Elena’s relationship is] really sad and really painful. And eventually, without giving too much away, I think it turns into the antithesis of everything it was."

New to ‘The Vampire Diaries’? My colleague picked 5 episodes you need to see before the new season.

Ian, Nina and Paul (yep, we’re going first names!) talk season 3, that KISS, going on benders and a strip club in Mystic Falls.

I just hope that Damon and Stefan and Klaus can go on a bender or two. - Ian said.
