Lord, have mercy. Ian Somerhalder may be the hottest male actor of my generation, and I’m not the only one who thinks so! He’s currently staring as moody, mercurial Damon Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries, and is dating his costar Nina Dobrev. He’s one of those I-do-everything-and-still-look-amazing guys–he has a foundation to protect the environment, tweets like a boss, and is fan favorite to star in the upcoming, uncast movie adaptation of the erotic novel trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey.
While presenting at the People’s Choice Awards, he and actress Casey Wilson got a bit cozy during a funny opening skit, during which she warns him not to cross the invisible line between them. In typical Damon fashion (I assume Damon and Ian are of the same mind on all things, right?) Ian crosses the line and gets very close to her, giving a sexy, angry smoulder. I’m surprised her hair didn’t catch fire just from proximity!

Check out the picture of Ian and Matt Bomer at the PCAs! Is it just me, or is it too much beauty for just one picture? Would Matt make a better Christian than Ian?
