The Originals


No need to try and remake Three Men and a Baby, Hollywood, the CW is already on it!

The Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals shocked viewers when it was revealed that Klaus (Joseph Morgan), a hybrid, got Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), a werewolf, pregnant. Like, really, really shocked. Fortunately for the expecting duo, they've got a great support system in vampire brother Elijah (Daniel Gillies).

We chatted with Morgan and Gillies on the red carpet at the CW's Upfront presentation in New York City, where they recast the classic '80s film with their characters! Plus, they revealed what fans of The Vampire Diaries can expect from The Originals when it debuts this October...

Sorry, Charles Michael Davis, but you are definitely not Tom Selleck! "I hope with Charles as well as we can go for the Three Men and a Baby," Morgan jokes of the baby plot on the new series, before Gillies adds, "I'll be Tom Selleck, you can be Steve Guttenberg!"

Along with the fans, Morgan admits he was completely caught off guard by Klaus becoming a father, saying, "I knew it was going to be her baby and I still didn't clue in that I was the father of it!"

And as for how The Originals will differ from Vampire Diaries, Morgan explains, "It's going to be darker, a little sexier and edgier. Vampire Diaries was more about these kids growing up, a coming-of-age high school story; our show is more about creatures embracing their true nature and reveling in that."
