Pretty actor/model/actor-model Steven R. McQueen has departed his role in the TV show The Vampire Diaries, where he played "pretty fella who never does anything but his sister his really into vampires," in order to... well, no-one knows what he plans to do next. But the actor has long been lobbying for the chance to bring the DC superhero Nightwing to the screen, and with a Nightwing-based Titans TV show in development at TNT, it seems likely that McQueen has landed his dream role.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec pointedly noted that McQueen would be welcome to return to the show, "unless he finally gets his wish to play a superhero and he’s unavailable." As hints go, that seems like a heavy one. But is McQueen the right heartthrob to play comics' premiere hunk?
