People like Ian -- so give us more!  
I don't get it. I do not get why Hollywood, the entertainment industry, magazine publications, etc. are not taking notice of this! Last year, in Entertainment Weekly's year-end entertainer poll which had 12 options to vote for, Ian Somerhalder came in second behind Ryan Gosling -- who was EVERYWHERE last year -- as sexiest male entertainer. Well, the list is out for this year. Technically, Ian came in second again at 16%, because Channing Tatum (I don't agree, but again, dude is EVERYWHERE) and Michael Fassbender were tied at first with 19% (so really, he was third, but still!). Ian also won the favorite TV actor category with 21% of the vote. (BTW: Nina Dobrev, came in 4th place -- the only other TVD person).

Bottom-line, the guy is popular. He really, really is. So why do we not see more of him? I don't get it.

It could be a choice of his to back off? Just wondering if he wants to focus more on ISF and Nina (now that they are public). Not doing as many interviews, etc, that sort of thing maybe.

Channing Tatum as Sexiest Man Alive was a travesty & the first time People got something absolutely WRONG.

I've never found Channing attractive, at all.

You are not alone.

Thank goodness!
And I never saw Magic Mike...never saw the point to it LOL

Yeah, never saw it either.

Eh, I wouldn't say first time because I've certainly disagreed with their choices before, LOL! But, yeah, I liked CT in 21 Jump Street, but in everything else I've seen him in, no. And he's just not sexy to me at all.

I'm not even talking so much doing other work -- although we do know that he has auditioned for some stuff -- but like magazine covers and stuff. He gets a few things, but they aren't even remotely the bigger, more nationally known magazines (I mean GQ, Men's Health, Men's Journal, Details, EW, Rolling Stone, etc., these are all magazines he could conceivably get covers for... yet, nothing). We should just see more of him, see his name more out, see him treated more like a potential for things... but he's relegated mostly to 'oh, he's just on the CW, no1curr! PEOPLE CARE!

It's usually linked to being on a teen tv show.
People don't take him too seriously (idiots)

And it's also part of privacy...I think he values it a lot.

I'm not talking about things that invade his privacy, but like being up for other roles, even put out there. We know he's auditioned for stuff and nothing. Magazine covers/articles, he only gets random, not very big stuff except for a few triangle-TVD related stuff.
bangel_4e: elenadressbangel_4e on November 30th, 2012 12:35 am (UTC)
Yep, unfortunately he's not 100& out there..I think it's mostly the tv show's fault (LOL)...a rare number of actors and actresses can rise from their tv show role and do something else...almost never movies but definitely other tv shows.

Eh, TV stars and movie stars are crossing over all the time now. It's not the rare thing it was before at all. There's still time for something to happen with Ian. I'm hopeful.

Late response that's late... ITA that he should get more roles etc., I think he can flex his acting chops and I sincerely wish that he gets the chance.

P.S. FLIST reactions to the latest ep makes me wanna get caught up on Season 4 pronto (still haven't seen a single ep, wanted to wait until the pre-Xmas break batch was complete)

THIS SO HARD!

Well, you have two more episodes to wait through. I could NOT do it. Man, when I would have had to wait until 11:30 to watch the last episode, I was all screw that! I found a livestreaming video to watch at 8:00.
