The top choice will not come as a huge shock to anyone who’s been following the conversation about casting this movie: Fans picked Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder, who had 18% of the votes.
The next runners up were Twilight star Robert Pattinson, and True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard. It’s been nearly a week since Sons of Anarchy actor Charlie Hunnam left the project.
