Ian Somerhalder arrived at the 2012 CW UpFront in New York City on Thursday (May 17) looking very sexy in jeans, t-shirt and leather jacket. The Vampire Diaries was there to promote the fourth season of the show – which will air on Thursday nights in the fall.
MTV caught up with the actor and asked about the possibility of him playing Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.
He said, “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.”
Mentioning if the S&M parts of the book made him hot under the collar he admitted, “A little bit, yeah, there’s blushing.”
Later on the actor took to his Twitter page to thank fans for the day.
He wrote: “You are awesome NYC fans. Wow, the faces today that I’ve seen- so sweet. Truly”
