Jason Dohring, Detective Will Kinney, The Originals

Veronica Mars and Moonlight’s Jason Dohring will be human Detective Will Kinney in The Originals season 3!

The Originals will have a new human when Veronica Mars and Moonlight alum Jason Dohring joins the season 3 cast as Detective Will Kinney!

Like Rebecca Breeds, who will play Aurora, and Andrew Lees, who will play Lucien, Jason‘s character of Will Kinney will appear in the season 3 premiere.

Jason has been in a number of shows on The CW, beginning with his three seasons as Logan Echolls on the UPN/The CW series Veronica Mars and in the recent Veronica Mars movie. The UPN network was the precursor of The CW network. Other shows on The CW he’s been in includes The Tomorrow People, Ringer, Supernatural, and most recently The Messengers.

Jason is also no stranger when it comes to fangs! In addition to The CW shows, he also starred as a rich, mischievous 412 year old vampire playboy, philanthropist, and hedge-fund trader named Josef Kostan/Josef Konstantin, BFF of vampire PI Mick St. John played by Alex O’Loughlin, on the beloved CBS series Moonlight in 2007-2008. If he still has his fangs, they may come in handy if human Will Kinney turns into vampire Will Kinney!

Detective Will Kinney is smart and confident with a very clear sense of right and wrong, who is out to bring the forces of evil to justice. And while Kinney doesn’t know exactly what’s going on in New Orleans, he has a strong suspicion that something strange is going on beneath the surface of the city.

Jason, 33, is married and has two children, a son named Owen Riley, and a daughter named Lilly.
