Give it up to The Originals for having the greatest casting department in the history of TV. Because they just cast our favorite Veronica Mars star for season three, and we can barely keep ourselves together right now. This is just too good.

Jason Dohring. Has joined. The Originals. This is not a drill, people!

The man all Marshmallows knew and loved as Logan Echolls on the CW/UPN's canceled-too-soon series Veronica Mars is heading down to New Orleans this season, E! News has confirmed. And his story is going to be epic.

Dohring will first appear in the third season premiere of The Vampire Diaries spinoff series as Detective Will Kinney, who is described as smart and confident with a very clear sense of right and wrong. Detective Kinney is out to bring the forces of evil to justice. And while he doesn't know exactly what's going on in New Orleans when it comes to supernatural beings essentially ruling the city from the shadows, he has a strong suspicion that something strange is happening beneath the surface of the city. Yeah, go with that instinct, dude. We think you're getting warm!

This isn't the first TV role Dohring has landed since his time playing the loveable bad boy on Veronica Mars (which he also reprised for the movie last year). He's spent some time on a bunch of other CW shows, like The Messengers, The Tomorrow People, Ringer and Supernatural, as well as CW Seed's web series Play It Again Dick, the Veronica Mars spinoff/parody.

The Originals season three premieres Thursday, Oct. 8 at 9 p.m. on the CW.

THR first reported this casting news.
