World premiere of Dermaphoria, starring The Vampire Diaries’ Joseph Morgan and Ron Perlman, to open 13th edition of the London festival.
The line-up for the East End Film Festival (June 13-25) has been revealed.
The 13th edition of the festival – which runs for 13 days – will open on Friday 13th June with the world premiere of Dermaphoria. The US film is the second feature from Ross Clarke, the east London-based filmmaker and DJ who directed homeless documentary Skid Row in 2007 and co-founded music festival Lovebox.
Based on a novel by Craid Clevenger, Dermaphoria follows an experimental chemist who wakes up in a New Orleans jail with amnesia, accused of arson and links to a drug-manufacturing ring. The cast includes Joseph Morgan (The Vampire Diaries), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Walton Goggins (The Shield), Anwan Glover (The Wire) and Kate Walsh (Grey’s Anatomy).
The Originals star Joseph Morgan (Klaus) has some serious game in the People’s Choice Awards’ “Against the Clock,” a 30-second game of rapid fire questions. During his time on the hot seat, we learn what he and Klaus have in common, on which show he’d most like to guest star, and who he ships Klaus with: Caroline (Candice Accola) or Cami (Leah Pipes).
OK, so he kind of evaded that last question with a cheeky “Camoline” answer — or maybe he really ships the two characters together? Either way, we can’t help but love the enthusiastic spirit with which JoMo dove into answering the questions. If you were wondering, Daniel Gillies (Elijah) is both the co-star who most frequently makes him break character on set and the person he sees most often offset; he wants to guest star on The Walking Dead; and he desperately wants Robert Knepper (perhaps best known as Prison Break’s T-Bag) to guest star on The Originals. Also, the thing Joseph and Klaus most have in common: their face.
We can’t help but admit we’re most intrigued by this Cami or Caroline question. As The Originals progresses, it seems more and more clear that the show is presenting Cami and how Klaus reacts to her in a very similar way as Caroline and her relationship with Klaus on The Vampire Diaries. Both Cami and Caroline are optimistic blondes who aren’t afraid to stand up to Klaus and tell him exactly what they think of him. They are also two of the most moral characters on shows filled with immoral “heroes.” While Klaus caters his actions for almost no one; he seems to try to be better for both Caroline and Cami.
The only difference at this point seems to be that Klaus repeatedly professed his feeling for Caroline through both his actions and words. Thus far, he has made no such romantic advances on Cami, though he does seem to be rather jealous of her relationship with Marcel (Charles Michael Davis). Is Klaus interested in Cami or does his heart still lie with Caroline? (Caroline, duh.) Are the two mutually exclusive. (Er…probably not.) We’ll be interested to see how the Cami/Klaus dynamic develops as things get worse in the French Quarter. And, as always, we can’t wait until Caroline makes what is hopefully an inevitable appearance on The Originals — not only so we can see her reunited with Klaus, but to see how she and Cami get along.
Who does Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley most want his on-screen, hero-haired counterpart Stefan Salvatore to go on a date with? Joseph Morgan (Klaus) from The Originals, of course. We’re just going to assume this would be everyone’s answer.
The revelation came as part of a People’s Choice Awards’ “Against the Clock” video, which has Paul answering rapid-fire questions for 30 seconds. Yes, it’s as adorable as you might think. In addition to his Stefan/Klaus shipping, he named Daniel Gillies (Elijah) as the co-star who most often makes him break character and who he sees the most off-set. This makes our hearts melt a little bit. We think Paul may secretly (or not so secretly) be looking for an excuse to hang out on The Originals set. (Maybe he should direct an episode?)
This isn’t the first time Paul has expressed regret that the relationship between Klaus and Stefan could not be explored in greater depth. Last November, he dished about the “unresolved bromance between Stefan and Klaus.”
“I think there’s an unresolved bromance between Stefan and Klaus that I think was really short, in my opinion,” Paul said. “They really cut it short, and I thought it was very unfortunate because I think they had really cool stuff in the 1920s flashbacks, and then it was like, ‘Bam.’ It just ended. I think that they had a really interesting thing going for a minute, and for some reason the writers did not want to pursue that. So, it would be nice to do that.”
Well, never say never. There’s always a chance that Stefan could make his way over to
or vice versa. Given that both are leading characters on their respective shows, we wouldn’t say the possibility is high — and we doubt if they’d be able to stick around long enough to explore their relationship in-depth — but you never know!
