The Vampire Diaries is currently on a little break before filming begins on season four, and this means the free time has allowed the stars of the series to think of other projects. One of the stars of this hot vampire series, Ian Somerhalder, has eyes set on one steamy project. He wants to take on Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey.
Somerhalder is not the first actor to express interest in the sexy role. Discussion about Fifty Shades of Grey has taken over Hollywood, and fans have even chimed in with their perfect matches for the characters in the erotic novel. Somerhalder said the following about taking on the role in an interview recently:
“I think it would be an amazing thing. One interesting thing is, by the virtue of playing Damon for now a few years, [he’s] 170 plus years old, in love with an 18 year old, I officially have a lot of experience seducing younger women. I’m not saying, I’m just saying.”
Somerhalder did admit to blushing over the novel and some of its content. However, Candice Accola also said her co-star, the man behind Damon Salvatore, would be an ideal fit for the character of Grey.
Would Somerhalder fit the role? Has Damon really prepared him for such a role? That is hard to tell. Damon has a dark side to him, and he has a way with the ladies. It would be interesting to see him tackle something outside of The Vampire Diaries again.
What do you think? Do you want to see Ian take on Fifty Shades of Grey?
