As Alaric, Matt Davis may have met his end on The Vampire Diaries, but the actor is back tonight on the CW's newest drama, Cult . Matt stars in the small-screen thriller as an investigative journalist. When his brother goes missing, he discovers that a TV series about a creepy-but-charismatic leader and his followers — and the show's obsessive real-life fans — might be behind the disappearance. During our chat, Matt gave us some clues as to how the mystery will unfold this season, weighed in on whether there's any possibility that Alaric will return to The Vampire Diaries, and talked about a cause close to his heart: saving rhinos from poaching. Cult premieres on the CW tonight at 9 p.m./8 p.m. Central. On Lindsay: H&M jacket.
