The CW’s Wyoming Project has cast its lead actor.

Sean Faris, who recently starred in several episodes of The Vampire Diaries as Ben, had nabbed the lead part in the pilot, which is produced by Gilmore Girls’ Amy Sherman-Palladino.

Smallville fans may remember him from years ago in the episode “Nocturne.”

The character he will be playing is named Gideon Thorpe, a horse trainer who is responsible for taking care of his three younger sisters after the death of their parents. Hopefully he’ll have Matthew Fox on speed-dial to find out how it’s done.

Also cast in the pilot as Faris’ younger sister is Renee Smith.
