(Photo : Origin) Ian Somerhalder fuels Christian Grey love and support.

"Vampire Diaries" heartthrob Ian Somerhalder receives constant Christian Grey love from "Fifty Shades of Grey" fans daily... and what's not to love? The 34-year-old actor is sweet, sexy, intelligent, charming, sexy, funny, personable... oh, and did we mention sexy? Somerhalder recently posed (naked) for the March cover issue of the popular poetry and alternative magazine, Origin. And from the looks of it, he's totally Mr. Grey worthy... again, what's not to love?!

Check out the cover photo for Origin magazine that was just released on March 1. Not only is the gorgeously-toned Somerhalder shirtless, but he's obviously out to support a good social cause for our future generation!


So Somerhalder isn't exactly "naked," but the headline does read "The Naked Truth" - so we can still dream, right?! Just the sort of sexual mystery and intrigue associated with "Fifty Shades!"

As several "Fifty Shades" enthusiasts already know, Somerhalder remains a top-contender to snag the coveted role of the kinky and seductive Christian Grey. As Mstarz originally reported:

Some fans think that Somerhalder has the perfect look and attitude to portray the suave, handsome, and successful businessman Christian Grey. Those piercing eyes and that silky brunette mane could probably do the trick, and his role as the sexy, "bad boy" vampire Damon Salvatore in the hit novel/television series "Vampire Diaries" leaves some fans swooning. The only setback would probably be his age - Grey is only supposed to be 27 at the start of the "Fifty Shades" trilogy. But the fact that Somerhalder is already in his mid-30s doesn't seem to affect many "Fifty Shades" enthusiast... in several recent Mstarz polls, he remains neck-in-neck will fellow fan favorite Matt Bomer. A sneak-peak trailer for Somerhalder's latest acting project - a series of six short films entitled "Time Framed" - also has some fans and critics buzzing that the short clip would make the perfect screen test/audition for "Fifty Shades." Check it out:


Somerhalder can definitely rock that sexy and suave suit-and-tie.

The former "Lost" hottie has even managed to snag the attention of erotic authoress EL James... well, sort of. This seductive image was posted by a "Fifty Shades" Twitter fan page last month:

@BookTemptations: "All I can see of his face is his beautiful chiseled mouth and strong jaw.#FiftyShadesDarker @E_L_James."


And James actually responded, with the simple:

@E_L_James: "@BookTemptations :D."

James (who lives in London) and Somerhalder (who works mainly from Louisiana) both recently spent some time in LA... wonder if they ever got together to catch-up and discuss the actor's Mr. Grey potential?

No official casting news yet... but do fans still think Somerhalder could make the perfect Christian Grey?
