Prom star Thomas McDonell has lined up his next role.

The newcomer has joined the cast of Tim Burton's Dark Shadows.

The movie is a big-screen take on the 1960s gothic vampire TV soap opera. Johnny Depp will portray Barnabas Collins, a self-loathing vampire living in a Maine manor who is searching for his lost love. McDonell, who has already garnered comparisons as a "young Depp" in industry circles, will play the young Barnabas.

Michelle Pfeiffer, Jackie Earle Haley, Eva Green and Bella Heathcote will also star in the flick from Warner Bros.

You can catch Thomas as "Jesse" in Disney's Prom, in theaters April 29.
