Ian Somerhalder: Young Hollywood Hottie

Ian Somerhalder drops by the Young Hollywood Studios for an interview on Friday (October 15) in Los Angeles.

The 31-year-old actor Vampire Diaries star may be getting a new love interest on the hit CW show.

Former Supernatural actress Lauren Cohan has been cast as Mystic Falls’ newest vampire, Rose, who possibly catches Damon’s (Ian‘s character) eye!

After the season wraps in April, Ian is headed to Africa and Central America with the Pew organization and Conservation International.

“Then I’m going to Washington for a Congressional Delegation that is going to be totally crazy,” he told the Los Angeles Times. “But I want to be able to get in front of Congress and explain the ideas that we have and how to go about them.”

    Hot AND intelligent, the guy is just perfect.

  • Just Kidding

    I think he is a respectable person. He really does care about the environment and animal welfare.

  • Tina

    The Vampire Diaries is a great show. Season 1 was excellent. The only problem with it now is Ian (Damon) is totally whimpy now. He follows Elena around like a lost puppy dog. This guy used to be so hot when he would chase different women and be te tough guy. Now when he is on screen you know what to expect. Damon acting all whipped. BORING!!!!

  • Lilakoi Moon

    His eyes are SO blue. I’d get drowned in them. I hate it when guys have eyes THAT piercing blue…. ‘cuz I can’t look at ‘em straight in the eyes for long. I have to look down :D …………. I know I’m weak!

  • rocknmovies

    At 31 he is not that young anymore…

  • Ginger

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Damon cannot have a girlfriend because he has girlfriends already in the viewers like me and my friends. HAHAHAHAHAAA…

    I like the new Damon… I like how he hurts people and then later on you know why. His character makes you mad and then makes you love him even more!!!! I’m sure it’ll be like that all through the series!! Love him!!

    But now Mason is the bad guy!! And He’s a hottie too!!

  • Sian

    He’s gorgeous but the hair always looks so bad. Please, Ian’s stylists, get it together.

  • Dasha

    OMG those eyes!!!

  • taryn

    i just love Ian his eyes r mesmerizing !

  • CanadaGirl

    Ian’s crooked grin is sweet. I’m glad that he’s on another show. When he was killed off of Lost I was really sad because I liked his character and he’s quite handsome to boot. Physically, he looks good, but I do think he needs to put on a few though as he seems to have lost a bit of weight.

  • Dieanna

    OMG! his EYES!!!! i think i just died!!!

  • Ash

    his face is weird- -

  • Not impressed

    Demonic eyes. Great mask for Halloween.

  • Lisa2


    When I saw the pictures of him, before I read the comments, I was thinking the same thing!!! He really does have the Rob Lowe eyes and jaw line.

  • used to be a fan

    Loved loved the Vampire Diaries in the beginning. Not so much now they should change the name of the show to the Damon show. Way to much attention is put on him chasing his brothers girlfriend. I mean he was great in the beginning not now. It is just weird going after a woman your brother has slept with. Yuck

  • Alison

    @Tina: OMG tina I totally agree with you. They don’t intend to break up Stefan and Elena so why have Damon pinning away after Elena all the time. Damon is missing his swagger.

  • polkat


    but also not old

  • We all change

    It’s called character evolution, people. Are you the same person you were last year? How about 5 years ago? If so, then you need to re-evaluate your life because people change, and characters on shows are supposed to be a reflection of real life, hence, they need to change too.
    If a character remains stagnant there would be no plot. Conflict drives the plot, character development. etc. The show is obviously building towards something. We just don’t know what that is yet., obviously.

  • monice


    you right , he looks like him, but in my opinion Ian is better actor, and nicer person. While Rob was busy getting “busy” in the national convention and partying with the Bratt Pack, Ian is fighting for a good cause and he is super nice to his fans.

  • amy

    I agree with some of the comments Damon should stay with a good thing. He is better when he is a ladysman. Playing with alot of different It is just so boring having hime chase after his brothers girlfriend. Well unless your into Jerry Springers He so much better as an actor when he is being a kickbutt kinda character. Rather then a puppy dog.

  • Chris

    Makes Brad pitt look like the grim reaper!! lol, this guy is just amazingly good looking!

  • Marieme

    Another hero for Mother Earth. Yay!! Ian really cares about issues that matter.
