Casting* is currently underway for the role of Carter, a "handsome and rugged" African-American carnival worker who flirts with Bonnie and picks a fight with Tyler. The role is said to be shooting between July 23 and August 3."
I can come up with 4 plot lines to how this all went down, but I'll save my ideas and wait for the brilliant writing of Julie and Kevin to play out on screen.
Thanks to VampireSite.net for posting and SnowVamp for the heads up!
