When we next see Damon Salvatore and Elena Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries, they will be together, in love and happier than ever.

But what obstacle might get in the way of their future? Well... he's 172 years old and she's only 18, Ian Somerhalder jokes in the following interview.

Seriously, though, folks, there's a "dark underbelly" of Mystic Falls that always seems to cause trouble for Delena, along with most of the couple's close friends. How might that come into play on The Vampire Diaries Season 5?

And how can you help this actor give back to important causes, such as animal rescue and environment protect? He makes a simple request in this exclusive chat with our friends at TV Fanatic. Check it out now:

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

  • Ian Somerhalder Waves
  • Nina Dobrev Smiles

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.

Images like this one have surfaced and ignited the reports they're an item:

Afterwards, Malese shared the above image ... clearly enjoying herself.

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!

Ian and Nina Picture

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 Vampire Diaries stars Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev made a fan's life - and fortunately, she'll have a lot more of it after a successful lung transplant.

Nina and Ian, maybe the world's hottest on-and-off-screen couple, paid a visit to 14-year-old Kayla Miller in the hospital, where they posed for this pic:

Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Fan

"Sending congratulations to @kayla_0507 and her family. We all secreted this. Her life has been saved. I'm smiling ear to ear," Dobrev wrote on WhoSay.

The Vampire Diaries fan had her life-saving surgery last weekend.

Luckily, no heart attack ensued when Somerhalder leaned in.

Nina Dobrev hasn't read Fifty Shades of Grey yet, but with her name floating around as a possible fit for the female lead, she might want to get on it!

"All I've heard is that it's very scandalous, to say the least," the Vampire Diaries starlet told MTV. "I haven't read it, but I'm intrigued ... who knows?"

"I mean, well, I guess we'll have to see."

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder

With co-star and real-life boyfriend Ian Somerhalder expressing interest in the role of Christian Grey, it's no surprise Dobrev has been linked to Anastasia Steele.

Working with Ian a second time isn't as appealing to Nina as you night think, though. She said if she did play Anastasia, she'd prefer another guy.

"I don't know if that's a good idea," she said of herself and Somerhalder both starring in the movie adaptation of EL James' erotic love story trilogy.

"I think it's best for any of the actors on The Vampire Diaries to kind of do their own things ... and create new characters ... if it's the same people, the fans will alway see me as Elena and they'll see him as Damon if we do a film together."

Forgive us for ripping off a previous CW marketing campaign, but: OMFG.

There really is no alternate reaction to the trio of covers Entertainment Weekly just released in honor of The Vampire Diaries, specifically stars Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley. All three are featured across the main cover and two collector's items, and nary a shirt is to be seen...

  • Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder Naked!
  • Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev EW Cover
  • VD on EW

Copies of the issue go on sale Friday, while inside producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson dish on the challenge of writing for a show with dueling, passionate fan bases.

"When we want Stefan and Elena to have a moment together, how can we do that and not have our Delena fans outraged?” Plec asks.

We've got an idea, Julie: just take Damon's shirt off. That will satisfy all viewers.

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.”

  • Vampire Diaries Trio
  • Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev

For more hot shots of this gorgeous cast, visit the official Rolling Stone website.

The season will include a blood-thirsty Stefan, as previewed in this trailer, along with a closer relationship between Elena and Damon, Caroline and Tyler.

How does the cast get along overall? It's "a total frickin' lovefest," Somerhalder said, and he should know: the actor is dating Dobrev.

Which vampire-themed franchise do you like best?
