The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, and though season 5 will have a lot of new faces (check them out here), some things will remain the same: We’re counting on Damon (Ian Somerhalder) to still have the show’s best lines. Below, revisit some of his best insults. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Ian Somerhalder (1-8 of 8)
Four years ago today, something supernatural happened: The Vampire Diaries premiered on The CW. And just like that, we fell into the world of Mystic Falls, Va., where the hot new guy in town had a sexy (albeit dangerous) secret, Bonnie was “psychic,” Jeremy was in his drug phase, Elena was sick of faking a smile, and no one knew what a “moonstone” was.
That, of course, would all change, just as we, the viewers, would change right along with it as TVD exposed us to countless wonderful things. Here’s our list of the 20 things we want to thank The Vampire Diaries for giving us:

'Fifty Shades of Grey': Bret Easton Ellis tweets that Robert Pattinson was E. L. James' first choice for Christian
After countless rumors, fake magazine covers, secret conversations, and fan-made movie trailers, Charlie Hunnam has officially been cast as rich-playboy-with-a-secret Christian Grey in the big-screen adaptation of E. L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey. But that doesn’t mean he was the author’s first choice.
According to Bret Easton Ellis, who had once expressed interest in writing the screenplay, James pictured Robert Pattinson in the role of Christian, who’s described in the books as having dark copper-colored hair and, of course, those unforgettable gray eyes.
Ellis tweeted that not only was Pattinson James’ first choice, but that fan favorites Matt Bomer and Ian Somerhalder were “never in the running.” Check out Ellis’ tweets below: READ FULL STORY
The official Teen Choice surfboards have all been handed out, but after absorbing Sunday’s two-hour awards ceremony on Fox, I felt there were simply not enough awards! This year’s bonus prizes are…
A wetsuited Rebel Wilson thought it was funny there’s a group called One Direction, because “That’s also the name I gave to my asshole.” Lovely!
CHOICE BEST AND WORST MULLET
Aggghh, don’t touch it! READ FULL STORY
In honor of March Madness, EW is launching a tournament to determine the Greatest TV Couple of All Time. But before we can finalize the brackets, we are turning to you, our hopeless TV romantic readers, to decide which five couples — all part of a love triangle on their respective shows — make it out of a qualifying round to fill the final slots. Today, we’re debating Stefan & Elena versus Damon & Elena on The Vampire Diaries.
It’s the age-old tale of two brothers, one girl, a whole lot of lust. Blood lust actually. In the Vampire Diaries world, the only thing that can come between Salvatore brothers Stefan and Damon is Mystic Falls’ very own doppelgänger, Miss Elena Gilbert. And it just so happens that between the brothers is where Elena tends to stay (and we can’t blame her). Elena has perfected the art of choosing one Salvatore, only to change her mind episodes later. To be fair, she doesn’t have an easy decision. I mean, have you seen those two?
If you have, then you should understand why we can’t choose between them. We love Damon’s blue eyes and snarky comments just as much as we love Stefan’s green eyes and brooding ways. But in order to determine the Greatest TV Couple of All Time, a choice has to be made. Put yourself in Elena’s shoes: Stelena or Delena. READ FULL STORY
It’s time for Mystery Date: Supernatural Edition! While the whole vampire craze may be drawing to a close (Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 comes out on DVD March 2) 2013 is still on track to be a huge year for those that love the supernatural. Apologies to viewers who enjoy their zombies more in the style of Walking Dead, but it’s looking like the biggest trend is more romance, less death and destruction. Warm Bodies, in theaters today, centers around a love story between zombie R. and a human, Julie. It’s a great read – and surprisingly, in between the killing and the brain eating, a wonderfully original and charming boy-ish meets girl tale.
Which got us thinking: Readers probably have their personal favorites when it comes to the guys that portray these vampires, zombies, and werewolves (Ian Somerhalder, Robert Pattinson, Alexander Skarsgard, etc.) But what if we took the actors out of it? Based solely on the plotlines in the current books/movies/television shows, which supernatural should you, a “normal” human with a slight love on danger, attempt to begin a relationship with? The answer may surprise you – or help you justify a couple all-too-real conversations about an alleged hypothetical situation (ahem).

There’s a hoard of Vampire Diaries loyals in the world who would love to have lunch with Ian Somerhalder, and now, here’s their chance. The bonus? It’s for a very good cause.
Charitybuzz is hosting an auction that will award the highest bidder a chance to have lunch with the Vampire Diaries star in Atlanta. (Place your bid here.) All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, and specifically go toward the organization’s plans to open up an animal sanctuary.
“A big component of ISF is not just habitat or species conservation, it’s animal protection and youth education,” the actor tells EW exclusively. “There are too many animals that are abused, mistreated, and abandoned. They’ve been ostracized, they have behavioral issues, and they’re starving. It’s just unbelievable what we’ve done to the animals, and I think that’s why this is so important.” READ FULL STORY
