Will Ian Somerhalder star in the wildly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie? That question was posed to The Vampire Diaries star during his Chelsea Lately appearance on Wednesday.

Ian Somerhalder might take on the role of Christian Grey in the movie adaption of 50 Shades of Grey.

The Twilight Saga doesn't actually conclude until November 2012, but Ian Somerhalder doesn't care. He's already making a pitch to fans of that franchise.

“The whole Twilight thing is about to be over," The Vampire Diaries stars says in the latest issue of Rolling Stone, when asked about his show's competition. "And teenage girls can’t watch True Blood with their parents - that would just get weird. So we’re getting ready to kick some major ass this season.”
