Nina Dobrev, Melanie Griffith, Amanda Seyfried, Uzo Aduba, Peter Dinklage, and Pablo Schreiber are just a few stars who will be participating in the 14th annual benefit, The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway.
The title of the benefit is essentially what it is. Over a dozen of chosen actors, six writers, and six directors are challenged to come up with six original short plays over the course of 24 hours — which is a VERY short time!
o get a feeling of how much time these artists have, we’ll break it down for you.
On November 16th, the playwrights will meet at 10 p.m. and MUST finish a 10 minute play by 7 a.m. the next morning.
Then, the actors will rehearse the plays for the next 12 hours and at 8 p.m. on Nov. 17th, the plays will be performed in front of an audience at the American Airlines Theatre!
Other stars who have agreed to participate include: Sasha Alexander, Jamie Chung, Billy Crudup, Rachel Dratch, Michael Ealy, Seth Green, Bryan Greenberg, Taran Killam, Zoe Kravitz, Justin Long, Aasif Mandvi, Stephen Merchant, Diane Neal, Jay Pharoah, Sebastian Stan, Julia Stiles, Tracie Thoms, and Michael Kenneth
“Just the thought of it actually hurts me a little.”
This is what The Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec has to say about the idea of a seventh season without any of her main cast members.
Us, too, Julie. Us too!
As E! News previously reported, only two of the show’s three leads—Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley—has signed on for a seventh season, which would kick off next fall, if the CW decides to pick up the series. Season six is currently airing—and kicking some serious creative ass—on Thursdays. (A new episode airs tonight.)
TVD’s ratings have been holding steady, averaging about 2 million viewers (last week’s episode was its largest audience since March), but the decision of a seventh season likely won’t be made until early 2015.
So what are the chances that season seven will happen? And would TVD’s producers and the CW really consider continuing the show without any of the main trio—Nina, Ian or Paul? If one of them decides not to continue?
I sat down with Julie to try to get some answers. See what the TVD mastermind has to say in the exclusive video right here….

Hold onto your fangs, The Vampire Diaries and The Originals fans, because we’ve got some major crossover scoop guaranteed to make you freak out!
Our Kristin Dos Santos sat down with one of the busiest and most kickass showrunners in the biz, Julie Plec, aka the lady who’s brought us some of our favorite couples in pop culture, and she had some awesome scoop to share with us about which TVD star is swapping shows for an episode on The Originals this season and why.
And we’re not exaggerating when we say that it’s as amazing as you could ever hope for.
Watch our interview with Plec above now to find out who’s crossing over!

Who’s ready for yet another impressive role from doppelganger expert Nina Dobrev?
That’s right, the TVD star is about to show off her acting chops once more by introducing another doppelganger via flashbacks to the TVD/Originals universe.
“There’s a lot of people that could cross over, and when we plan our crossovers, we like to think of the most clever way to integrate The Vampire Diaries mythology into The Originals mythology,” Plec tells us. “There was a character’s name introduced a long time ago in season three in association with Klaus [Joseph Morgan] and Elijah [Daniel Gillies] and how they became vampires and a girl that they both loved a long time ago who was the original doppelgänger, Tatia. So Nina Dobrev will be visiting The Originals for a nice little storyline in our fifth episode which airs November 3.”

The Vampire Diaries’ days may be numbered—if one of the show’s main stars doesn’t come around.
The core TVD trio—Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley—have been in talks with the studio, and so far, only two of the three actors have signed on for a seventh season, E! News has learned. The remaining star (either Nina, Ian or Paul) is unsure whether he or she wants to continue, according to multiple inside sources familiar with the talks. (Warner Bros. does not comment on contract negotiations.)
The Vampire Diaries, which launches its sixth season Oct. 2, has been a hugely successful series for the CW, giving the fledgling network in 2009 its highest-rated premiere ever (5.7 million viewers). Season five averaged more than 2 million viewers, which is still pretty strong by CW standards.
If all three main actors (Nina, Ian and Paul) were to sign on for a season seven, the show would have a good shot at a seventh season pickup. We also hear it’s possible that the network would consider continuing the show without all three stars, shifting the focus to some of the other beloved characters.
