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!

  35. 135

    His eyes are beautiful i've been a fan of him since he was on Lost! fuck me he's hot and those books are pretty good!

  36. 136

    Thanks but no thanks. You will never find me on the opposite fence from Rob's. Ian will never be as god damn hot as Rob. I may will watch that show but I def won't waste my drool or panty pudding for a guy like Ian. Mmm no thanks! I need moar Rob news!

  37. 137

    RPattz >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Ian WHO?!

  38. 138

  40. 140

    Re: EyesRadioLies – it isn't going away soon………………………………..

  41. 141

  43. 143

  46. 146

    oh please. no competition. hes fucking pretty and thats not hot.

    rob needs to not change a damn thing. he is unique, sexy and perfect :)

  47. 147

    Very Hot but no ROB

  48. Dark says – reply to this


    PErez .. Have you never seen RULES OF ATTRACTION ? Ian kills it in that little Film

    SEE IT

  49. 149

    Perez you just made my day!!!!! This GOD is fifty billion times hotter than that disgusting pattinson creature. And this one looks so clean too.

  50. 150

    Re: JohannaSweden – So true, Eric is HOT. I love true blood by the way, trumps shitty twilight everyday of the week.

  51. 151

    Re: dodgerchick – you stupid bitch. The vampire diaries is from 1991, The true Blood books from 2001, stephanie meyer didnt even begin to write Twishit until 2003. Not to mention that she ripped off both of them for ideas, the plots are so similar its disgusting, and that she can't write worth a damn. Twilight is stupid and its yesterday's news….. Oh and by the way, ALL CAPITALS IS FUCKING ANNOYING YOU MORONIC SKANK.

  52. 152

    ummmm not EVEN CLOSE!?

  53. 153

    I remember him from Young Americans. He was pretty then and he is pretty now.
    I mean he is no Rob, but he is attractive. Apparently he is a major dick in real life, too.

  54. 154

    R-Pattz need not worry. He is unique…different than every pretty boy out there.
    That's why he's popular now, because Hollywood needs a true actor with character. Someone who stands out from all the rest. Plus he's such a nice guy and oozes sex appeal! Summitt should take care of him….he's got a great future if he makes the right choices!

  55. 155

    check him out in rules of attraction, so good. he plays a gay college student and hooks up with james van der beek (aka dawson).

  56. 156

    Delish. But no one can replace RP

  57. 157

    Robert Pattinson is the only Robert Pattinson. Robs sexy. This guy not so much.

  58. 158

    dear lord Rob is not the hottest thing on the planet. seriously.

    and this guy is perrrfect for Damon! He's a really great character haha

    oh those books came out waaaayyy before twilight and are 100 times better. News Flash ppl there are better vampire/love stories out there AND they have actual sex scenes lol and no real vampires don't sparkle

  59. 159

    Somerhalder's an improvement on Zefron, but in no way does he compare with Rob, bcos as far as I can tell Rob does not wear blusher.

  60. 160

    Re: Jilly LaVern

    God thank you for mentioning that

    LJ Smith has a serious called Night World and I swear SM ripped those books off with the description of edward. Hell in the first freaking chapters it talks about the character James crooked smile and green eyes… hmm wonder who else has a crooked smile and green eyes… please twilight is garbage when compared to REAL vampire stories

    there's way to many fan girls in this world

  61. 161

    Re: dodgerchick

    you need to get some better reading material

  62. 162

    that is blasphemy.
    this guys tooooo pretty. like gayface kinda pretty.
    robert looks like a grimey - beautiful MAN. it hurts to look at robert he's so beautiful.
    downgrade for you perez. downgrade for you!

  63. 163

    Oh, yeah he played Boone on LOST! This is going to be good!

  64. 164

    Hey to the few girls who actually KNOW the series! I've always been alone in my love for the Salvatores and Elena/Bonnie/Meredith and Matt. Ive read the books so much they fell apart. And yes, Twilight is a rip off of BOTH of those series without the sexual tension or the uh…REAL vampire rules of darkness. I bought the series combined in two books, AND her new one! Im glad it's focusing more on Damon. Bad boys are awesome.

    Ian Somerhalder is hot..but *raises hand* Damon has "Eyes as black as oil". STEFAN's are "green as oak." Ians eyes, while gorgeous, are noticeably and shockingly blue!

  65. 165

    Mmm..he's lovely. But the Vampire Diaries weren't that great…hopefully the show will be better. I'd totally watch just to see this guy. LOL I'd love it if they'd make the Morganville Vampire books into a series or movies. ;)

  66. 166

    Don't get me wrong… I love love LOVE Rob… and this Ian guy is a little old for me …but check out those sexy baby blues!!!!!

  67. 167

    Pft, scary face. Rob's the better looking vampire hands down.

  68. 168

    Rob is a dog. Period. He looks like someone took a pan and slammed it into his face -REPEATEDLY- until it caved in. (Side profile says it all)

    Twilight also sucked, just like all of those lame-ass books. Rob himself even said it reads like some housewife's fantasies. lulz.

    Ian is a better actor, he DAMN SURE looks better, and we wouldn't even know who Rob is if it wasn't for that movie about vampires that "sparkle" and don't have fangs. >.> I hope his show does well, and for God's sake, please don't DAZZLE anyone.

  69. 169

    RoBeRt pattinson is W3Ird, FUGLY (!!!!), and FUGLY!!!!!!!!!!!.
    and this guy is WAY HOTT!!!!.
    he makes such a better vamp!!!!, he should have played edward!!!!!!!!.

  70. 170

    Don't ruin a good book series, television!

  71. 171

    They def dont sparkle, in fact someone burning and turning to dust is part of the story. And Perez, shes not a WOMAN torn between to vampires. Shes a 17 year old girl.

  72. 172

    nope, looks like zac to me. i need dirty, rough, mean & does he have the accent? no. not the next.

  73. Ooch says – reply to this


    OMGGGG honestly I didn't watch Lost but I thought he was sexy in Rules of Attraction…ya for Ian Somerhalder!!!!

  74. 174

    nope he shouldnt be compared to Rob Pattinson thats mean to do so! Robs on a whole other level! Maybe this guy could be hot if you cut him outa this picture and put Rob there hehehe =}

  75. 175

    I hate that now people are all of a sudden trying to make so much money off of vampires just because Twilight did good…… Twilight did good becuase it's awesome not because it's about vampires……though it helps lol :D

  76. 176

    Robet Pattinson ftw!

  77. 177

    Boone!……he was on the 1st season of Lost
    and he really does look similar to chace crawford

  78. 178


  79. 179

    OOOhEEEmGeee!! thissss oneeee'ss really really HOTT!

  81. 181


  82. 182

    This guy is fucking hot! Robert whatever his last name is always looks drugged… and he's soooo fucking ugly.

  93. 193

    Meh! I hated him on Lost.Rob is totallly hotter than him. The CW bloows ass..who even watches that trash.

  94. 194

    He is so freaking hot! Why couldn't he play Edward. His eyes are stunnnnning.

  95. 195

    he's girlish pretty. its not flattering for him. oh well who cares.

  96. 196

    Ian Somerhalder is "bi-curious" according to a friend of mine that has known him for many years.

  97. 197

    both as sexy :)

  98. 198

    wow. and i bet he showers! bonus!!
