Ian Somerhalder Flashes Sexy Smile and Buff Biceps at South By Southwest (PHOTOS)

Ian Somerhalder has been traveling all the country these days. In fact, just a week after visiting New Orleans for Mardi Gras (and flying back to Atlanta just one day later), Ian was off on yet another adventure — this time headed for South by Southwest in Austin, Texas!

The Vampire Diaries actor hit up the annual media festival as guest panelist on “Companies, Non-Profits, & the Future of Impact.” Joined by founders of RYOT, (RED), and Omaze LLC, Ian shared his experience through the philanthropic work he’s done with the Ian Somerhalder Foundation.

“AN AMAZING schedule to be on!” Ian tweeted on Friday, March 7. “Cant wait to talk @RYOTnews & the power of @IS_Foundation UNREAL.”

But it wasn’t all serious business for the gorgeous 35-year-old. Ian also found time to kick back and relax in the Funny or Die Clubhouse + Facebook Pop-Up HQ on Saturday, March 8. After enjoying a bit of bonding time with The Following’s Kevin Bacon, Ian lead a Q&A session on his official Facebook page.

“Thank you for this experience everyone!” Ian wrote when the Q&A was over. “And thank you Facebook for making it possible. You all inspire me… This was amazing dialogue!”
