Good news for fans of former Guiding Light star Paul Wesley (ex-Max Nickerson): the popular actor will be back for the upcoming second season of the CBS All Access drama Tell Me a Story.
Wesley played Eddie Longo in the first season of the show, which was a modern-day telling of Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, and Hansel and Gretel. Deadline reports that the upcoming season of the anthology series will focus on storylines inspired by Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella, with Wesley playing a brand-new character.
This time, Wesley is stepping into the shoes of a struggling novelist named Tucker who spends his sleepless nights toiling away in a secluded cabin in the woods and his days trying to prove he's good enough for his beautiful fiancée. But Tucker's romantic existence is all about to come crashing down as a dark secret threatens to destroy his world.
Wesley starred on GL from 1999 to 2000 before going on to star in The Vampire Diaries for eight seasons -- a show he also directed on several occasions and also produced for its final season. His other acting credits include Wolf Lake, Everwood, American Dreams, Army Wives, 24, and Netflix's docu-drama Medal of Honor; while his directing credits include episodes of Roswell, New Mexico and Legacies.
Season one of Tell Me a Story is available to stream at any time on CBS All Access.
