If you're in the mood for afternoon eye candy, this extended clip from the upcoming series The Vampire Diaries may be just the ticket.
Adapted for television by Dawson's Creek creator Kevin Williamson, The Vampire Diaries is based on a book series by L.J. Smithand will air on The CW. In the books and the TV series, a pair of vampiric brothers (one good and one evil, of course), battle for the soul of a beautiful girl and the town where the brothers grew up when they were human.
There's another clip online that features Ian Somerhalder's (Lost) dark side as the evil brother Damon more than this sneak peek. While it the character doesn't appear to be quite as enjoyably evil as Spike or Angelus from the Buffyverse, Somerhalder does seem like he's having fun being the seductive bad guy.
From the look of those two clips, Diaries' visuals appear to fit nicely with The CW's current paranormal hottie show, Supernatural, while having a darker and less humorous tone. If nothing else, the female lead comes off as less annoying than Kristen Stewart's Bella in Twilight -- an immediate plus in my book!
