It seems higher education is going to bring A+ drama for some of our favorites on The Vampire Diaries.

EW has learned that Rick Cosnett has been cast in the role of Dr. Wes Maxfield, a brilliant biology professor at Whitmore College who “makes fast enemies” with new college students Caroline and Elena. And the plot thickens when Caroline and Elena begin to think the prof is “hiding a dark and dangerous secret.”

Aussie import Cosnett is a relative newcomer, having appeared mostly on television shows in Australia and worked in theater.

The Vampire Diaries season 5 premieres Thursday, Oct. 3 on the CW.

Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, and Paul Wesley star in the CW’s romance-infused vampire soap opera.
