Supernatural and Vampire Diaries fans have not seen the last of Sebastian Roché. As the actor tweeted this week, he’s now shooting the thriller Safe House, starring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. What’s interesting: The first trailer for the film hit the Web earlier this month. Roché’s character — Heissler, a German foreign intelligence agent who is a senior officer — was just added for additional scenes.

Washington stars as a renegade CIA agent who comes back on the grid after a decade on the run giving up assets and selling military intel. The South African safe house the agency is holding him gets stormed by mercenaries, and the rookie “housekeeper” (Reynolds), who hasn’t seen any action inside those walls, escapes with him but doesn’t know who to trust. The film hits theaters February 10, 2012.
