Nina DobrevIf there's one thing a girl can count on from bad-boy bloodsucker Damon Salvatore, it's a well-timed, pithy quip that completely sums up her feelings on, well, everything. And, wow, does he deliver in an extended promo for the season five premiere of "The Vampire Diaries" when he deadpans, "If I have to hear the word 'doppelganger' one more time, I'm going to have to learn how to spell it."

Yes. This. (Though, after four years covering The CW series, that's one spelling we've finally mastered.) Regardless, while "The Vampire Diaries" is known for its dizzying plot twists, all these lookalikes running around may prove just too much for us to follow without the aid of a flowchart. Case in point: In the clip below we see Elena (along with bestie Caroline) embracing college co-ed life while her doppelganger soaks in boyfriend Damon's bathtub, inches away from locking lips with ex-boyfriend Stefan's doppelganger Silas. Follow?

Maybe you should just watch for yourself...

When you think of actor Daniel Radcliffe, what's the first thing that comes to mind? [Pause] It's sex, isn't it? It's okay. No, really. Don't be ashamed. We're right there with you. After all, with upcoming steamy turns in "Horns" and "Kill Your Darlings," how could you really associate the 24-year-old with anything else? (We do hear he starred in some sort of kiddie series that was fairly popular in the U.K....)

Anyway, when we caught up with Daniel at the Toronto International Film Festival—being the ace reporters that we are—we had to get his best tips on the art of sex acting. Two words you'll want to remember: Tom Hanks. Learn it. Live it.

Click play on the clip above for the latest installment of MTV's After Hours!

Welcome to Whitmore College!

The CW has released a slew of new images from the season-five premiere of "The Vampire Diaries"—appropriately titled "I Know What You Did Last Summer" (shout-out to Kevin Williamson!)—capturing Elena and Caroline's first days as college co-eds.

"They're really committed to enjoying life and enjoying college and being college freshmen. It's a good plan—too bad it's not going to work," executive producer Julie Plec told Hollywood Crush regarding the girls' matriculation. "Of course things will go instantly, terribly wrong, because that's what always happens, but they remain committed to trying to have a true college experience and it bonds them in a really good way."

Willem DafoeThe oft-pondered question of who would play curmudgeonly author Peter Van Houten in the big-screen adaptation of John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars" has finally been answered. Willem Dafoe has landed the role, rounding out the cast of the currently in-production project.

Director Josh Boone took to Twitter today to announce the news himself, writing: "One of my favorite actors, Willem Dafoe, will play Peter Van Houten in #tfiosmovie!"

"The Fault in Our Stars" centers around teen cancer patient Hazel Grace Lancaster (played by Shailene Woodley), who meets and falls in love with fellow Cancer Kids Support Group member Augustus Waters (played by Ansel Elgort). Van Houten's novel, "An Imperial Infliction," is referenced early on as Hazel's favorite book, and without giving too much away, the author plays an important role in Hazel and Augustus' love story.

Catching FireWith just 12 weeks until "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" blazes into theaters, Lionsgate has kicked off its "TickTock" countdown, promising new goodies each week until the film's November 22 release date. Today's morsel: the release of Coldplay's soundtrack single, "Atlas."

The track marks the first time the Grammy-winning band has recorded an original song for film. And in signature style, they've delivered a single that is soaring yet melancholy, which pretty perfectly captures heroine Katniss Everdeen's standing by the end of this second installment. (Click to download the track from iTunes.)

GleeIf you've never met the colorful Sgt. Pepper, brace yourself. After no shortage of teases hyping the fifth season of "Glee," FOX is finally giving us a (somewhat) substantial look at the two-part premiere.

The 30-second clip is awash in all things Beatles—from the Fab Fours' mod suits to the technicolor costumes of the faux Lonely Hearts Club Band—offering a surprisingly upbeat look at what will surely be a trying season following the death of star Cory Monteith. His tribute episode will air October 10.

"We've been shooting it. It's horrible," Naya Rivera told MTV News of the heart-wrenching episode. "So many, so many [memories]. He was an amazing guy and I definitely miss him."

Hailee SteinfeldFew actresses are poised to have as auspicious of an autumn as Hailee Steinfeld. In October, the 16-year-old will play one-half of the most famous star-crossed pairings of all time, stepping onto the moon-lit balcony as Juliet in "Romeo and Juliet," adapted by "Downton Abbey" creator Julian Fellowes (a project she told us all about late last month). Then, in November, she'll launch into outerspace for the big-screen adaptation of "Ender's Game," starring Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford. Yet, Hailee somehow found time to pose for the October issue of Teen Vogue and chat with their interviewer all about her surprisingly down-to-earth existence.

"Whether I'm a bit of an old soul or not, I am who I am, and that doesn't change, whether I'm with adults or with my friends," Hailee explained of balancing her very adult responsibilities with her teen sensibilities. "When I'm in this adult world, I get to play dress-up and be a big girl and meet older people. It's the best of both worlds."
