The site has posted the casting side which not only describes Klaus, but it also offers some insight on what’s in store for the show in the near future.
“Klaus is late-20′s to mid-30′s. He’s handsome, charming, intelligent, with a sharp wit. He’s the only person who can out-Damon Damon [Ian Somerhalder]. That’s because he’s got a thousand years on him. Klaus is one of the Originals. Possibly the oldest. But you’d never know it because he keeps up with the times.”
From what we know so far, Klaus is an Original vampire who’s out for Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) blood in order to break an old spell that prevents all vampires from walking in the sun without a ring, and that bounds werewolves to their human form except under a full moon.

Klaus is also after Bonnie (Katerina Graham), Caroline (Candice Accola) and Tyler (Michael Trevino), because they are also key subjects to breaking the ancient spell.
Katherine’s description of Klaus, and Rose’s stories about him, make it clear that this vamp is a ruthless, experienced and extremely powerful, so we’re in for quite a ride once he gets to Mystic Falls.

Vampire Diaries producer Julie Plec did an interview with Entertainment Weekly where she offered a bit about how they thought to introduce Klaus to the series and why.
The mystery of Klaus and when we’ll see Klaus is going to be the same question of ‘When will we see Katherine?’ from last season. We’re gonna learn a lot about him and be hopefully very afraid of him before we ever lay eyes on him. That’s gonna be a nice, big, long healthy tease. It’s so funny, the way we dropped the bomb of his name last episode [Rose said The Originals, the oldest vampires, will be coming for Elena, and they’ll be doing it for him, Klaus], Kevin and I were laughing. We’re like, the book fans are gonna lose their freakin’ minds in this moment, and the rest of America is gonna go, ‘Huh… Alright. Who’s that?’ [Laughs] But it’s one of those moments that you’re like, I don’t care because I know the million book fans are gonna be so excited that it’s worth it.”
So, now that the arrival of Klaus is that much closer, who do you think should get the part? What do you want Klaus to look like?
