JDB Actor BINGO: Day VII

bingo 007To finish off the first week we’ve got he of the creepy pale eyes, Ian Somerhalder! Ian was born and raised in a small town in Louisiana, and first started modelling before becoming an actor. He appeared in two CSI’s and a Law & Order before being cast as Adam Knight in Smallville, one of  the most interesting characters to ever be unfortunately connected to a Lana subplot (and I was really hoping he’d evolve into the show’s version of Bizarro).  Ian followed up Smallville by being the first Lost castmember to be cast, and also the first to be killed off back when the people who died weren’t just the problem actors on the show. You can see him next starring in the terrible looking The Vampire Diaries on the CW.

Cool trivia from IMDB: The surname “Somerhalder” originates from his adoptive great-grandfather. His biological great-grandfather, a wealthy English landowner, got one of his mistresses pregnant and paid an immigrant worker of his to marry this woman and give the baby a name, which was Somerhalder. The biological great-grandfather’s name was Hull. Ian Somerhalder is a much better name than Ian Hull.
