Does Elena want to publish her diary? Is Damon about to be left at the altar? Find out what Tree Hill’s resident book editor/runaway bride is doing in Mystic Falls!

I always geek out when an actor from one of my favorite shows crosses over to another — so imagine the dopey grin on my face when I first read that One Tree Hill‘s Michaela McManus is joining the cast of The Vampire Diaries! Michaela’s character Jules will arrive in Mystic Falls in December, and according to the all-knowing Michael Ausiello (via Movieline), she’s out for blood. Mason Lockwood‘s blood specifically, as she’ll be playing a friend of the late werewolf (I’m still in mourning.)

I know I can’t be the only person excited about this. I’ve been a huge fan of Michaela’s ever since her days on Tree Hill, as her character, Lindsey, was the one person who said what everyone else was thinking — and that includes calling Peyton (Hilarie Burton) a bitch. Which she was.

Here’s hoping she doesn’t end up as vamp food!
