Ian Somerhalder is sizzling hot, even when stepping outside of his Vampire Diaries role. The actor stars in an upcoming series of short films that are environmentally friendly.
According to a report from Hollywood Life, Somerhalder plays Agent Black in a film series called Time Framed. Black is a character who battles environmental evil and plots to steal an energy device that could provide clean energy worldwideÂ—and he does all this while looking sexy.
Ian has a long history of helping out with environmental causes. The brains and bucks behind his own foundation, he was instrumental in helping clean up the gulf coast last year following the BP oil spill.
This is the first time, however, that the handsome vampire has taken his love of environmental issues to the big screen. Girlfriend and The Vampire Diaries co-star Nina Dobrev was beyond excited to tweet news of Ian's upcoming film. She let her followers know when a short teaser promoting Time Framed was released.
"It's finally out!!!!" she tweeted on Thursday. "First teaser from a short film series that @iansomerhalder produced with SinFactory Media. Directed by Sinisha Nisevic!"
