Less than a month after being killed off of The CW’s The Originals, Daniel Sharman has booked his next major TV gig.

Sharman has been cast in the CBS medical drama pilot LFE, our sister site Deadline reports, which follows a group of second-year residents at a top New York City hospital who struggle to keep their god complexes in check. Sharman will play a good-hearted surgical resident named Joe.
The English actor joined the cast of The Originals at the top of its sophomore season, playing the role of vampire-turned-witch Kol Mikaelson; a nasty spell cut his (second) life short in the CW drama’s Feb. 16 episode.
In addition to The Originals, Sharman has recurred in MTV’s Teen Wolf and ABC Family’s The Nine Lives of Chloe King.
Captures of Daniel from last weeks The Originals have been added to the image gallery.

With Vincent (guest star Yusuf Gatewood) on the loose and hell bent on revenge, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) will bring Cami (Leah Pipes) to the safe house as he and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) return to the compound. Hayley and Jackson (guest star Nathan Parsons) will devise a plan to bring the vampires and werewolves together to consider a truce, but tensions are going to grow when Vincent places a spell on the compound, trapping the two sides together.
Meanwhile, Elijah (Daniel Gillies) is going to grow concerned when Rebekah fails to show up at the safe house, prompting Klaus to confront Kaleb (guest star Daniel Sharman) for answers. Lastly, after accepting her mother’s offer to jump into a new body, Rebekah (guest star Maisie Richardson-Sellers) will turn to former Harvest girl ,Cassie (guest star Natalie Dreyfuss), for help when she finds herself trapped inside an insane asylum. Danielle Campbell and Charles Michael Davis also star. Rob Hardy directed the episode, and it was written by Ashley Lyle & Bart Nickerson.

Here’s your first look at Daniel as Caleb in the new season of The Originals.
Looks like Daniel will be jumping from one supernatural show to another!
From werewolf to witch!
The Originals has cast Teen Wolf fan favorite Daniel Sharman in a major season two role, E! News has exclusively learned. Go on, take a moment to process the awesomeness of this casting news. We’ll wait. Got all your squealing out? OK, let’s move on!
So who will Sharman, who is also known for his work in feature films such as Immortals and The Last Days of Edgar Harding, be playing on the CW hit when it returns for its sophomore season? Kaleb, the handsome, devilish and charming new witch in the French Quarter’s coven.
Intent on wreaking havoc, wooing women and causing as much chaos as possible, Kaleb has been deeply wounded by a horrific family upbringing and covers his emotional bruises with a wicked sense of humor, as well as a wicked temper. When you’re on his good side, there’s no better party. Get on his bad side? Well, you’ll regret it.
Also known for his time on the UK series Masterpiece: Inspector Lewis, Sharman is set to make his debut in the season two premiere.
Sharman’s new gig on The Originals reunites him with Joseph Morgan, as the British actors both starred in the 2011 hit film Immortals.
I have added two pictures of Daniel from his first event of 2014 to the gallery.
