It's still to be determined who will play Christian Grey in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie, but it's reportedly become clear who will not be cast:

Ian Somerhalder and Garrett Hedlund are both out of the running, according to insiders, along with Stephen Amell, narrowing the list of candidates.

Hedlund, 28, was reportedly approached about playing the S&M-obsessed lead in the film version of E.L. James' erotic novel, but turned it down.

"Doing a possible trilogy was too big a commitment, and producers wouldn't let him do just one film," says the source of Kirsten Dunst's boyfriend.

Ian Somerhalder, 34, is out too - though he openly coveted the part.

Ian Somerhalder offered a fan Nina Dobrev's phone number at Comic-Con yesterday in what could best be described as an awkward moment.

The two co-stars appeared at the annual San Diego pop culture extravaganza for a panel Q&A discussion to promote The Vampire Diaries Season 5.

Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, who dated in real life but broke up earlier this year, have remained cordial and professional by all accounts.

That doesn't mean things aren't weird at times, however.

At one point, Nina joked in response to a question, "Is there anyone Elena hasn't made out with?" when an audience member shouted "Me!"

Ian replied, "Give me your number. I'll set you up."

Is Ian Somerhalder moving on from Nina Dobrev with Malese Jow? Probably not, but a cozy photo of the two on Twitter has gotten people talking.

Somerhalder, 34, recently appeared at the 2013 BloodyCon in Germany along with Jow, 22, who has also recurred on The Vampire Diaries as Anna.

According to a new report, the question was never popped, but the answer was unofficially given.

With fans still trying to determine what happened between Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev - did the actor cheat? What did his Tweet about people changing mean? - an insider tells In Touch Weekly that Dobrev is simply "too young" for Somerhalder.

“Ian was starting to talk marriage while Nina’s just getting started on her career,” the source tells the tabloid. “Nina still loves him but isn’t ready to make that huge commitment."

Those close to the stars insist they remain close and that their split will not affect filming on The Vampire Diaries Season 5.

Ian and Nina did appear side-by-side at The CW Upfront in New York City this month, smiling and waving to the crowd. We bet these two end up back together.

Ian Somerhalder split with Nina Dobrev last week and then was accused of cheating on the actress.

But he took Twitter this weekend not to address that personal situation, but to call out Justin Bieber for a bit of monkey business.

With Bieber being asked to pay for his pet Mally - who was seized by German customs after Justin entered that country for a concert and is now in an animal shelter, her fate unknown - the beloved actor and animal enthusiast called out Bieber yesterday.

"@justinbieber i hope the welfare of this animal is a priority for you.Its on you to set a good example man," Somerhalder wrote.

The most notable part of the The CW's Upfront event in New York today?

No, not the CW 2013-20414 schedule, though that is sort of interesting.

Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev reuniting! At least on stage!

The Vampire Diaries stars, who recently called it quits after three years of dating, were "consummate professionals" at the big presentation to advertisers.

While Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder avoided a red carpet run-in, the stars joined network president Mark Pedowitz on stage. Hot (and awkward)!

The breakup of Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev is the talk of the web, with crushed fans everywhere scratching their heads and looking for answers.

While neither has officially commented, Ian posted a cryptic Tweet after news of the split broke, and now a recent comment of hers is sparking speculation as well.

The general consensus is that The Vampire Diaries stars are at different points in life and just drifted apart, while remaining best friends, there may be more to it.

Last month, before the split became public, the actress wrote:

“Quote of the day: Ask for forgiveness, not permission.”

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder's breakup was bound to happen, friends say, but that doesn't mean any bad blood will surface on The Vampire Diaries set.

"There was no mean spiritedness behind of either of their motives" for ending their three-year romance, a source close to the couple explains.

Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, who were together for three years,"will continue to work together and remain best friends," a second insider adds.

The split, in some ways, was bound to happen.

The couple's ten-year age gap - he's 34, she's 24 - may have played a major role in the split, as Nina "decided she wanted to experience other things."
