Ian Somerhalder stopped by On Air With Ryan Seacrest yesterday (April 23rd) after partying at Coachella in the desert all weekend. Seacrest brought up the brilliant idea that Somerhalder should play Christian in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey.
“I absolutely would be up for that,” Somerhalder told Seacrest. ”I have the book and I just started reading it. That would be a pretty incredible thing, and hopefully that could pan out, I think.” Get thee to Universal, Somerhalder! “Yes, beyond the shadow of a doubt I think that would be a phenomenal opportunity!” As do we.
Aaaaand what about that amazing kiss last Thursday night on The Vampire Diaries? “It was definitely three years for us on the show, but I think our season is about six months each,” Somerhalder explained of Damon and Elena’s long-awaited smooch. ”You figure about a year and a half of them knowing each other. It’s a pretty big build up!”
Brace yourselves for this next quote, partners. “I spend my Christmas time with my family in Idaho…and I’m sitting there in my underwear looking up at the mountains and having my coffee.” OhMyGod. ”I wrote you [Seacrest], Jann Wenner, and Congressman George Miller holiday cards, in no particular order, and I made sure that they got out immediately that day.” Mmmh, delightful
“It is a giant effort on behalf of the Ian Somerhalder Foundation and all of our amazing partners. In 2006 in Estonia a young businessman looks around and sees all the trash all over his country and says, ‘ You know what this isn’t good. Let’s clean it.’ They rally together a portion of the countries population, and they did it all in one day.”
