He may be one of the hottest guys on television, but it sounds like Ian Somerhalder might be heading back to the big screen — or at least he wants to!
The sexy star of The Vampire Diaries revealed that he would "absolutely" love to star in the movie adaptation of E L James' uber-popular book, Fifty Shades of Grey. (Watch out, Robert Pattinson!)
Ian stopped by Ryan Seacrest's radio show this morning to talk about the latest episode of The Vampire Diaries, but instead, the hunky star dished on his desire to star as Christian in the erotic novel.
"I absolutely would be up for that," Ian told Ryan on "potentially" starring in the movie. "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.”
He affirmed, “Yes, beyond the shadow of a doubt I think that would be a phenomenal opportunity!”
We all know Ian could pull the sexiness off, considering he gets a lot of practice on his hit CW show, which just gave all its fans the moment they've all been waiting for this past week on the episode, "Heart of Darkness."
Elena, played by Ian's real-life girlfriend Nina Dobrev, and his character Damon finally shared a steamy, steamy kiss. And this time, it meant something.
"It was definitely three years for us on the show," Ian said of the wait, "but I think our season's are about six months each. You figure about a year and a half of them knowing each other. It’s a pretty big build up!”
