Ian Somerhalder only recently finished his filming for the latest season of The Vampire Diaries, but after a short European jaunt, the actor is more than ready to through himself into another project it seems
The hunk revealed that he’s heading back to work this week and starting preparations for his new movie role, leaving fans wondering if reports that he is taking on the lead in the new Fifty Shades Of Grey film are true.
Ian hasn’t stayed in one place for long, ever since he finished work on his hit CW show, he has barely even seen his girlfriend and co-star Nina Dobrev, but last weekend he revealed that he’s heading back to LA to begin work with his acting coach on his latest script.
“bye-bye beautiful Barcelona- back to LA to break down the new movie with the one and only Ivana Chubbuck (my acting coach and guru)”
He didn’t head straight home though and added:
“Quick stop in Amsterdam-so beautiful here….”
His tweet caused a bit of a frenzy on Twitter with thousands of his dedicated followers asking if he had indeed signed up to play the role of the twisted Christian Grey in the upcoming film adaptation. Of course, Ian is becoming more and more popular with casting bosses with every season of The Vampire Diaries that airs, so it could be any movie at all he’s talking about, however he does consistently keep being linked the Fifty Shades Of Grey lineup.
He’s not the only star being linked to the new film though and other reports have suggested that Magic Mike star Alex Pettyfer is also being considered and it’s been claimed that the hunk has even shot some test scenes for director Gus Van Sant.
Meanwhile, it’s been a bit of a time since we’ve spotted Ian with his girlfriend Nina Dobrev and despite the fact that he was in New York for a few days last week, the pair didn’t seem to reunite and on May 1st, when Nina attended the Great Gatsby premiere in the Big Apple, she did so very much alone.
‘The Vampire Diaries’ star looked stunning when she walked the red carpet in NYC at Avery Fisher Hall at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and she wowed the waiting crowds and photographers in a Versace frock from the Spring 2013 collection.
Somerhalder was pictured in the city earlier that day, however sources say that the couple didn’t cross paths, before he jetted off to Europe once again.
We hope there isn’t trouble in paradise!
