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!
