Listen Paul Wesley, I know you said that you don’t want be shirtless on The Vampire Diaries anymore, but for all that is holy in the world please, please, please be shirtless again! Your body…it’s beautiful.
Sadly, we won’t see Paul shirtless tonight as he makes his directing debut on the hit CW show. And it’s all his fault!
Apparently the writers had written something rather sexy for his character Stefan and Nina Dobrev‘s Elena, but Paul went the romantic route instead.
He told Entertainment Weekly radio, “I pitched it to the writers – I was like ‘Guys, I think this should be romantic and not sexual,’ and they fell for it. Suckers!” Ugh. Boo, Paul! Boo! But also, yay Stelena!
So now that Paul is done filming the fifth season of The Vampire Diaries, he’s jumped right into the Tribeca Film Festival. He’s a juror for the 2014 Narrative Short Film Competition, which means he’s some pretty hot shit. I like this serious, directorial side Paul. I hope we see more of it.
Launch the gallery to check out all the photos of the actor in New York City today. And make sure you check out tonight Vampire Diaries episode to appreciate his directing skills!
