William O. Perkins, founder and president of LLeju Productions, announced today that Paul Wesley, star of The CW’s “The Vampire Diaries” has joined the cast of The Baytown Disco.

The Baytown Disco, featured on 2009’s “Black List” of Hollywood’s top unproduced projects, follows the foibles of three redneck brothers who get more than they bargained for after agreeing to help a woman get her son back from his seemingly-abusive father.

Wesley’s previous credits include roles on “24,” “Army Wives” and Killer Movie.
