The Vampire Diaries: Casting for "Protective Parent"

by at . Comments

We will meet Bonnie's father on Season 4 of The Vampire Diaries. This has already been announced by Julie Plec.

But now we can seemingly break the news of that absentee dad's name, considering a casting notice that went out today which calls for an African-American man in his late 30s/early 40s named Rudy Owens.

The note described him as a "protective parent."

Serious Bonnie

Very few mentions of Bonnie's father have been made over the years, with the exception of a couple references to his displeasure of his daughter's involvement in witchcraft.

What will bring him into the picture this fall? It's unclear, but prepare to meet Rudy on Episode 10.

And prepare for Bonnie to take drastic, possibly life-altering action on Thursday's Vampire Diaries season premiere.

So... who should portray Bonnie's dad?

@Sa'ad702: It's a joke. :)

Romany Malco and Anthony Mackie are SO young they might as well be an older brother! They might be over 30 but they are just too young. I'm suprised you never added Michael Ealy to the mix. Kadeem Hardison is about the right age. But he's a comedian. Don't know if he could bring the drama to this show.
The guy who played Lamont Bishop on The Good Wife could be good.

I highly doubt that they can get these actors. Maybe in the first season and Anthony is also to young to play her father.

Seriously you put a choice for Cedric the entertainer? Seriously Matt? There are better choices.

Yeah They would have to pay him more than Ian's salary imo to get hi and it would have be a role of substance which we know anything related to Bonnie or any black character won't get. Stay far away from this, Morris, with your fine self.

I highly doubt that Cedric, Morris, and Anthony would ever set foot on the show. I would be shocked if one of them becomes Bonnie's dad.

Late 30s/early 40s seems a bit young for Bonnie's dad. Still, Morris Chestnut would be great in the role. He was the best part of V.
