The cast of The CW’s hit show “The Vampire Diaries” — Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley, Zach Roerig, Michael Trevino, Steven R. McQueen and executive proudcers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson — were on hand at Comic-Con on Saturday to dish about Season 4 of the blood-sucking teen drama.
“The Vampire Diaries” Season 4 has been shooting for a week, Williamson revealed, and the cast was ready to talk about where the season is headed, who will be back and what’s different in the “season of change,” as Williamson referred to it.
Season 3 of “The Vampire Diaries” ended with the shocking reveal that Elena (Dobrev) has been turned into a vampire. “It’s gonna be hard to make Elena different from Katherine,” Dobrev told the Comic-Con audience said of her vampire doppleganger. “It’s gonna be tricky.”
Somerhalder hinted that his character Damon will return to his evil ways in Season 4. “Damon is not a nice guy,” Somerhalder told the Comic-Con crowd of his character’s attempts to be kinder in Season 3. “This year, he said, ‘I did everything you wanted me to do. I tried everything you wanted me to try, and you know what? It didn’t work … This is who I am, if you don’t like it, you can go bleep yourself.”
When Williamson, who served as a moderator for “The Vampire Diaries” Comic-Con panel, asked about who the cast would want their characters to be romantically linked to, Roerig joked that he wanted to see his character Matt and Sheriff Forbes get together, while Wesley said he wants Stefan to “jump in bed with Elijah.”
Will we be seeing Katherine in Season 4? Plec said “not until Klaus is no longer a threat.”
What about Alaric since Matt Davis left for his upcoming CW series “Cult”? “We certainly don’t like living in a world without Matt Davis,” Plec responded, noting that hi contract with his new show would in fact allow him to make an appearance.
The “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie is one step closer to filming each and every day that passes. On July 13, Ian Somerhalder seemed to be the clear frontrunner amongst fans, but Ryan Gosling is also a favorite. Both actors have different qualities making them perfect for the role of Christian Grey in the film, but it’s unknown if either of them are even in talks with movie execs.
According to Entertainment Wise, Gosling actually has the edge over Somerhalder. “‘Drive’ star Ryan Gosling is currently the favourite with odds at 2/1 followed by “Vampire Diaries” hunk Ian Somerhalder at 5/2 (sic),” the site reports.
The “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie is going to be one of the biggest of the year, competing with box office greats like “The Hunger Games” and “Twilight.” Women all over the world are talking about the film and how great it’s going to be—if “their” version of Christian Grey is cast. As for Anastasia Steele, well that’s stacking up to be quite the race as well.
Actresses that could potentially play Ana include Kristen Stewart, Nina Dobrev, Alexis Bledel, and Emma Watson. However, according to the poll that Entertainment Wise refers to, the frontrunners are “Ted” star, Mila Kunis, and Scarlett Johansson.
If you could cast the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie, who would be your Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele?
Actor Ian Somerhalder is teaming up with Ketel One vodka for a new, and rather interesting contest. The prestigious vodka company is offering the gentlemen of today’s world an opportunity to showcase their game changing ideas with “A Gentleman’s Call: In Pursuit of an Idea that Matters.”
The campaign is a nationwide search for an original idea that “champions the lifestyle of the modern gentleman.” Ketel One is looking, specifically, for inspiration or endeavor that will raise society’s behavioral bar.
If you head on over to the official website, you can check out more details. The contest ends on the 29th of July and over on their site, five projects will be selected. Out of the five, there will be one grand prize winner chosen by consumers across the country. If that grand prize winner happens to be you, Ketel One will give you $100,000 to invest to turn your idea into a reality.
Along with Somerhalder, the company is also teaming with Co-Founder and CEO of the Movember Foundation, Adam Garone and celebrated actor Carlos Ponce, to help run the contest.
Overall, it sounds pretty interesting and some of the ideas that have been submitted so far are pretty neat, my favorite being the “Free the Internet” idea. If you’re the creative type, and have a winning idea, go on and enter.
You never know, your call may be answered by Ketel One.
