Forget red or black. Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) wants viewers of The Vampire Diaries to associate his character with the color green! In an interview with E!Online, Ian insists it makes total sense for Damon to ditch his 1967 Camaro for a $100,000 Fisker Karma, a luxury hybrid he describes as “sexy as hell.”

Said Ian, “The Camaro is a cool car, but you stand behind the exhaust too long and you get sick,” said the environmentally conscious celeb. “Damon has a lot of means to get the car. It looks like a Camaro, but it’s bigger and more beautiful and it’s completely green.”

Of course, Ian doesn’t just talk to the talk. This weekend, his own non-profit organization, the Ian Somerhalder Foundation (ISF), is holding a benefit called The Influence Affair, which aims to bring together high-powered individuals committed to real environmental change. The event will also celebrate ISF’s Get Dirty for Earth Day beach cleanup, which takes place on Saturday. Naturally, Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) will be on hand for the event, and Malese Jow (Anna) will also be attending the shindig along with other celebs.
