I decided to finally check Lost out after friends raved about it, but also after Ian Somerhalder, that dude who plays Boone in Lost, cut me in the drink line at the 100 Monkey's concert in Vancouver. At the time, I only noticed him b/c he was hanging out next to Ashley Greene, and because I was pissed that he got a drink before me. However, I guess Ian is now starring as another type of Vamp in the 'Vampire Diaries', and he spoke to MTV about how Twilight made his show possible:
"[Twilight] is a huge phenomenon, Lost alumnus Ian Somerhalder, who plays a vampire in the new show, admitted to MTV News. "Quite possibly and inarguably, yes [we have a show because of it], so I'm not going to complain. I haven't seen ['Twilight'] yet, so I don't know how it compares, but yeah, it's good that they're around."Read the rest at MTV.
"Vampire Diaries," based on the early '90s young-adult novels by L.J. Smith, is the story of Elena (Nina Dobrev) who is torn between a pair of vampire brothers, the tortured and well-meaning Stefan (Paul Wesley) and the devilish Damon (Somerhalder).
"Vampires are very hot. It's fun playing a vampire," Somerhalder said. "You're 200 years old. You can fly around. You can eat beautiful girls — well, you can suck on their neck. I don't physically cut them up and eat them. That would be a little sick."
