Nina Dobrev played some serious death games in the finale to the CWâs âThe Vampire Diaries," and it turns out thatâs only the beginning. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nina has just joined the cast of the indie action movie âDeathgames,â also starring Kellan Lutz and Samuel L. Jackson. The movieâs plot leads us to believe that this could be Ninaâs goriest onscreen endeavor yet!
âDeathgamesâ tells the story of Ninaâs characterâs husband (Kellan), a young man who is kidnapped and enslaved in a modern gladiator arena, in which men must battle to the death for entertainment via the Internet. Samuel plays the mastermind of the online gaming program who coordinates the fatal fights.
Any other recognizable faces in the cast, you wonder? You will also recognize James Remar, who plays Dexterâs father in the Showtime series âDexter" and was, ironically enough, Stefan and Damon's dad on "Vampire Diaries." Derek Mears, who is fresh off playing the infamous Jason Vorhees in âFriday the 13th,â continues his dark streak as Brutas Jackson.
âLostâ star Daniel Dae Kim has joined the filmâs cast after leaving The Island for good. So, regardless of whether youâre brave enough to watch âDeathgames,â Nina will certainly be in excellent company.
