thomas-dekker-getty.jpgWe were thrilled when " Life Unexpected's" Britt Robertson was cast as Cassie in "Secret Circle," and we've been waiting with bated breath for more news about Kevin Williamson's CW pilot. Now, TVLine reports that " Sarah Connor Chronicles" star Thomas Dekker has snagged the coveted role of Adam.

Adam is feels a connection to Cassie, the new girl in town, right off the bat. One problem - he's in a relationship with Cassie's friend Diana, and has been since they were children.

One more problem? He's the oldest member of a secret coven of witches. Cassie is about to discover that, she, too, is a witch -- and an important one at that.

23-year-old Dekker is best known for his work on "Sarah Connor," but he's also got an impressive film resume that includes a role as a cancer patient in "My Sister's Keeper" and the upcoming "Foreverland" with Juliette Lewis. He'll next be seen in "Cinema Verite," an HBO original movie about the first-ever reality TV family.
