Paul Wesley has an agenda up his sleeves while playing a villainous character in this new clip from his movie Amira & Sam, provided exclusively to JustJared.com.
The movie is about an army veteran’s (Martin Starr) unlikely romance with an Iraqi immigrant (Dina Shihabi) that is put to the test when she is faced with the prospect of deportation.
Paul plays the veteran’s cousin who offers him a lucrative opportunity at his hedge fund, helping to secure wealthy veterans as new clients. However, all is not as it seems.
The movie is now playing in select theaters and on VOD.

Jan 30th: (SPOILERS)Paul Wesley, Dina Shihabi and Sean Mullin Talk AMIRA & SAM and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES

Film school was a game changer for writer-director Sean Mullin. Not only did his 11-minute thesis film, Sadiq, score a number of accolades including Columbia University Film Festival honors and a nomination at the MTV Movie Awards, but then it turned into a highly effective calling card when he tried to get his first feature as a director off the ground. Amira & Sam stars Martin Starr as Sam, an army vet trying to readjust to civilian life. When he goes to visit a former Iraqi translator in New York City, he introduces Sam to his niece, Amira (Dina Shihabi). At first, she wants nothing to do with him, or any soldier for that matter, but when the authorities threaten to deport her, she’s got no choice but to take refuge at Sam’s apartment. While Amira tries to lay low, Sam agrees to help his cousin (Paul Wesley) score wealthy investors for his hedge fund by swaying them with his military background.
With Amira & Sam due for a theatrical and VOD release on January 30th, I got the opportunity to sit down with Mullin, Shihabi and Wesley to discuss their experience making the movie. We touched on making the move from film school to a first feature, what happened when Shihabi had to be rushed to the ER on their very first day of shooting, their serious poker skills, what it was like for Wesley going back and forth between Amira & Sam and The Vampire Diaries, and more. You can catch all of that as well as Wesley’s thoughts on the future of The Vampire Diaries in the video interview below.

“It’s a really beautiful, little heartwarming — I hate to use the word — romantic comedy,” Paul, who plays Sam’s cousin, told On Air with Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday. “But in a really interesting kind of indie fashion. It takes place in New York. Two polar opposite individuals fall in love. It’s really a beautiful New York City film and I’m not just B.S.-ing. I’m really proud of it.”
The film follows Sam (Martin Starr), a veteran who tries to assimilate back into society after a lengthy tour overseas. He visits his unit’s former Iraqi translator in New York City, where he meets an illegal immigrant named Amira (Dina Shihabi), who is facing deportation. Sam offers to keep her safe at his apartment while she sorts out her immigration issue, and their unlikely friendship begins to burgeon into a romantic relationship.
Amira & Sam opens in select theaters and On Demand this Friday. Fans can also catch Paul on The Vampire Diaries every Thursday at 8/7c on The CW. – See more at: http://www.ryanseacrest.com/2015/01/27/vampire-diaries-actor-paul-wesley-talks-new-indie-film-amira-sam/#sthash.IiytMWin.4baHsyuH.dpuf
