Gahd, we love a man in uniform.


Paul Wesley may be best known for playing Stefan in The Vampire Diaries, but he's swapped fangs for handcuffs in film The Baytown Outlaws, which sees him take on the role of cop Reese.

Also starring Billy Bob Thornton and Eva Longoria, the movie described as a "violent and breathtakingly-paced road-romp through the Deep South" - and tells the tale of three hillbilly brothers who agree to help a woman save her son from an abusive father, only to find themselves caught up in all sorts trouble.

You can watch Paul getting his cop on when the flick is released on DVD on 26th December, but to tide you over until then, we've got our hands on an exlusive interview with Wezzers. HUZZAH.

Watch the video below to see Paul talking about the joy of playing someone 'flawed' rather than the oh-so-noble Stefan, and how some people believed he was an ACTUAL cop. 

 

Whaddya think - are you liking the look of P-Wez in uniform?

The Baytown Outlaws is available on DVD and Blu-Ray from Decemeber 26th.
