Ian Somerhalder Jumps on the 'Fifty Shades' Bandwagon in New 'Vampire Diaries' Trailer

Damon Salvatore, The Vampire DiariesThere was a wave of people ready and willing to indulge in the Fifty Shades trilogy when the books first gained popularity, but it seems that The Vampire Diaries's Ian Somerhalder, er, Damon Salvatore is also into Fifty Shades of Grey in this preview of Friday night's season 8 premiere. 


With an sneak peek of the TVD final season, compliments of Entertainment Tonight, we found out that Damon is currently embracing his "winning sense of humor" and "new appreciation for chick lit." Of course, this is a win for all fans alike, as he proves that even in all his jaded ways, no one -- and we mean no one -- is immune to the lusty plot of the raunchy romance novel.

But quite frankly, I'm just about ready to head onto Reddit and write some crazy-intricate fan theory, because there are more than a few connections here.

One being that fans had the highest of hopes for Ian playing Christian Grey all throughout the film's casting process. And, two, Fifty Shades was originally fan faction based off the cult classic Twilight -- another vampire hit that his wife, Nikki Reed, played in.  

I don't know exactly where this fan theory is headed -- I just know in my heart that there's something there. Because who believes in coincidences? Certainly not me.

So, in the meantime, I'll be penning the most unfathomable theory, but I'll be sure to get back to you when it comes to me.
