The Next Robert Pattinson?

| Filed under: TV NewsIan Somerhalder


Robert Pattinson better step up his game and take a shower, because there's a new vampire hottie hot on his trail.

Lost alum Ian Somerhalder is joining the cast of The CW's Vampire Diaries as Damon, "a smug vampire who can go from playful to evil in a split second."

Like Gossip Girl, the series is being adapted from a series of books published by Alloy Entertainment. The series centers around a woman who falls for vampire brothers who represent either ends of the moral spectrum.


We love us some vampires!

    robert is pretty AND manly, unlike this schmuck.

  7. 7

    He looks like my Baby chace crawford

  8. Crash says – reply to this


    mMmm he is drop dead GOREgeous!

  9. 9

    This whole vampire fascination should really die already.

  10. Crash says – reply to this


    bite me Damon!

  11. 11

    im looking forward to this series though. is it based on a book?

  12. 12

    Knew first of him on "The Rules of Attraction". He's not just some handsome guy… there's more about him as an actor. Sure he'll rock!! :)

  13. 13

    wowza! Bite me! I still like Rob better, when he looks clean!

  14. 14

  17. 17

    nobody's as hott as r-patz. but this guy IS pretty sexy!

  18. 18

    Love, Love Love, Ian Somerhalder.
    First caught my eye on Young Americans in 2000.
    But I really fell in love with him after his role in The Rules of Attraction.

  19. 19

    OH MY!!! So HOT

  20. 20

    ohhhh he is gorgeous- loved watching him on Lost .. those eyes are beautiful

  21. 21

    he has nothing on robert pattinson. I don't even think efron is that cute and efron trumps this guy.

  22. 22

    nooooo there can only be 1 RPatzz but he still a cutie

  23. 23

    This guy IS hot… but something about Rob is still HOTTER.

  24. 24

    my brother was friends with him in high school…

  25. 25

    now hollywoods ruining the vampire concept..

  26. 26

    Rob's hotter. Sorry.

  27. nci87 says – reply to this


    not a patch on rob pattinson

  28. 28

    His eyes are to die for.

  29. 29

    He would make a pretty girl.

    And I guess the media kills another fad by taking it way too far

  30. 30


  31. 31

    Now that you said that Mario I'm sure He'll carry some mase with him at all times now.Just like Zac and the Rpat dude you stalk

  32. 32

    whoa…. he was on smallville. On smallville he's waaay sexy!!! oh man lol
    STILL Robert has my heart lmao

  33. 33

    He looks like Chace crawford.
    He'd make a Nice 'Ian O'Shea' in the host though [;

  34. 34

    WAAAAAYYY HOTTER than RP. RP looks dirty and drugged out!

  35. 35

    oh holy fuck…i think i might just watch this show

  36. 36

    Um, Ian Somerhalder is WAY hotter than Patterson. Plus, he can actually act and has a personality.

  37. 37

    Now that's one beautiful man right there!!! :)

  38. 38

    He is much hotter than Robert Pattinson, definitely! I would MUCH rather see him as a vampire, especially if he has any kind of acting skills, which that british douche does not. Also, why has no one noticed that Pattinson looks like a fetal alcohol syndrome baby?

  39. 39

    I heart Ian Somerhalder! He was great in "Rules of Attraction," and I'm still bitter that they killed his character off on the first season of Lost.

  40. 40

    He'll do a much better job than Robert Pattinson. How can he not?

    Don't be fooled by Pattinson's self-deprecating manner It's an ACT. He's really an arrogant, immature dick. I knew him pre-fame.

  41. 41

    Looks like you've gone off Rob Pattinson, Perez.
    Rob does not smell. Plenty of people have met him before.
    GOSSIP is not always TRUE you know.

    Leave Rob alone :)
    He's the sexiest man i've seen in a long time.

  42. 42

    He's not as gay, little boy looking as Zac, I'll give him that. He's no R - Pattz. He doesn't sing, have a sexy British accent and is witty. R- Pattz is the complete package.

  43. 43

    looks like a uglier chris pine

  44. 44

    Resembles a younger Rob Lowe. Can't touch Pattinson .. not even close.

  45. 45

    mmmm those eyes

  46. KTiz says – reply to this


    I'm soooooooooooooo excited for this series! WHO'S GOING TO PLAY STEFAN!??!?!?!??!?!?!?

    ps-i still

  47. 47

    Blech. No way.

  48. 48

    Pah !
    That guy ain't got nothin. He's no competiotion to Spunk Ransom

  49. 49

    The first book was kind of a doozy. Yet…it was written in 1991. And if you read Twilight too, you may be tempted to think Stephenie Meyer is a knock-off!!

    PS: That dude is definitely hot.

  50. 50

    Damon is irrestible! Lovely, sexy… evil;) Or is he? Ha-ha. He seems like a pretty good canidate for the part, if you ask me.

  51. 51

    gay face if I ever saw one

  52. 52

    Re: RissaBitch – Twilight isn't at all like this… the only similarity is the cliche vampire/human relationship…

  53. 53

    This dude is cute. Something far more hotter and mysterious about Rob though.

  54. 54

    Ian is pretty, robert is pretty, pretty la la la la lol

  55. 55

    EW PEREZ! He looks like a chipmunk! Him and Rob Pattinson? Really?? Um No competition Rob=sexiest man alive beyotches!

  56. 56

    I dont think they should replace Robert but they should replace the chick.

  57. 57

    wow nice!

  58. 58

    Mmmmmm so pretty! Bet he can be naughty too! Oh no you didnt.

  59. 59

    Wanna see a hot Vampire? Then check out Alexander Skarsgaard (Skarsgård, om du är svensk..) who plays the vampire "Eric Northman" in True Blood.. He's a great actor and he looks like a younger version of his dead, the super-hunky Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgaard (he's in movies like Pirates of the Caribbean, Mamma Mia!, The Exorcist, King Arthur and Angles & Deamons etc.) Alexander is gonna take Hollywood by storm, too! peace

  60. 60

    Yeah, he can bite me.

  61. 61

    he looks WAY more better than Rob Pattinson.
    i'm so gonna tune in to that new show =]

  83. 83

    ever since i saw him on that WB show "young americans" i've thought he's definitely the prettiest guy in the whole world!

  94. 94

    Perez please don't say those things! LOL

  95. 95

    Uhm, no.
