ian somerhalderEver been sucked into an Internet rabbit hole of audition tapes? It's a great way to kill 36 hours and possibly lose your job, but hey, it's worth it. Take this video of Ian Somerhalder for example. Here he is auditioning for Lost back in 2005 or 2006, reading for Boone, and man, it's obvious from his first few words that the guy's got talent. Eyebrows, and talent. Can't help but wonder if he's done a tape like this yet for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie ... and if he has, we're going to need to see his reading of Christian ASAP, if not sooner.

Watch Ian nail the audition for Lost. Sexy, steamy, authoritative, and chews like a man. What more do the Fifty Shades casting directors want?

Do you think Ian will make a great Christian Grey?
