Congratulations are in order for Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore). The Vampire Diaries star tweeted that he’s filming a new movie during the show’s summer hiatus, and many fans are hoping he’s scored the role of Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation.

The blue-eyed actor tops many people’s list for who should play the sexy Christian. But Ian isn’t giving any hints as to whether he’ll be cast in the film version of EL James’s erotic trilogy. After spending the weekend at a TVD fan convention in Barcelona, Ian tweeted, “5:41AM- bye-bye beautiful Barcelona- back to LA to break down the new movie with the one and only Ivana Chubbuck (my acting coach and guru).”

Looks like we won’t get a definitive answer from Ian about his new movie role just yet. And there’s bad news for fans who were hoping both Ian and his girlfriend/TVD co-star Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) would both appear in Fifty Shades together. She’s already been cast in another movie filming this summer: Let’s Be Cops.

Guess those fan-made trailers will just have to suffice.
