Ian Somerhalder Talks 50 Shades of Grey

Ian Somerhalder Celebrates Earth Day and Hopes to Star in 50 Shades of Grey

Ian Somerhalder brought his good looks to the Earth Day celebration in Santa Monica.

Ian Somerhalder joined other eco-conscious stars in Santa Monica yesterday for a beachside Earth Day celebration. Ian's been on the West Coast since last weekend when he and girlfriend Nina Dobrev visited the first round of shows at Coachella. Nina and Ian shared some PDA in the desert and watched acts like Florence + the Machine entertain the crowd.

This morning Ian was back to business in LA and stopped by KISS FM to chat with Ryan Seacrest about The Vampire Diaries, his Ian Somerhalder Foundation, and worldwide phenomenon 50 Shades of Grey. Ryan asked about Ian's interest in playing Christian Grey to which he replied, "Yes, beyond the shadow of a doubt I think that would be a phenomenal opportunity!" Ian wouldn't admit who he'd like to see play the role of Anastasia Steele, Christian's love interest, but something tells us there are plenty of ladies who wouldn't mind working with him on the project.
