Ian Somerhalder is well-known for playing vampire bad boy Damon Salvatore on The CW's The Vampire Diaries, but he's showing a whole new side of himself with his role in Netflix's V Wars, which drops on Dec. 5. Based on the bestselling books by Jonathan Maberry, the new series follows Dr. Luther Swann (Somerhalder) in a world where a mysterious disease has turned humans, including his best friend Michael Fayne (Adrian Holmes), into murderous predators.

After starring on The Vampire Diaries for eight seasons, you're probably wondering why Somerhalder would want to do another vampire show. While the actor totally understands people's fascination with him jumping back into the supernatural world, it's actually the differences between the two projects that drew him to V Wars in the first place.

"They're so unbelievably different," Somerhalder told Popsugar about the two shows. "Vampire Diaries had sort of a Ya-trajectory,

"Well, I don't wanna say what we're doing to celebrate because it's a surprise for her, and she might be watching. And if she is, then I wouldn't want the surprise to be spoiled," etonline.com quoted Nick as saying.

Nick Jonas Insists Priyanka Chopra Knows His Age After She Accidentally Got it Wrong

Nick Jonas Insists Priyanka Chopra Knows His Age After She Accidentally Got it Wrong
You didn't think Nick Jonas' fans were going to let this slip by, did you?  In a recent Instagram post celebrating Nick and designer John Varvatos' newly-launched tequila line, Priyanka Chopra mistakenly referred to her husband as 27-years-old instead of his actual age, 26. As she put it, "So proud. When you own your own tequila at 27!"  It didn't take long for internet trolls (with clearly little else to do) to begin calling out Chopra's mistake, which should be easily forgivable given that Jonas is turning 27 in just a matter of days. The singer celebrates his birthday on Sep. 16, so it's possible Priyanka is planning a blowout bash for her beau and...

Behind the Jonas Brothers’ Emotional New Documentary ‘Chasing Happiness’
Kevin, Nick and Joe Jonas are back with a vengeance, and Monday night’s premiere of their documentary “Chasing Happiness” proved it. It was full Jonas Brothers pandemonium outside the Regency Bruin Theatre in Westwood, with fans lining both sides of the street and waiting for hours to catch a glimpse of the reunited band. But the brothers say they never expected the rather impressive welcome back that they’ve gotten from fans, because they weren’t expecting to be back themselves.

“We weren’t intentionally doing a comeback in this doc,” Kevin Jonas told reporters on the black carpet at the documentary’s premiere. “[But] with all the time we spend together and going through the process and finding each other again in that capacity, led to us wanting to do the Jonas Brothers again. And then of course led to new music and then the album coming out on Friday.

‘Game of Thrones': HBO Reveals Length of Series Finale Episode
HBO has confirmed the air dates and estimated runtimes for the final six episodes of “Game of Thrones,” including the series finale.

And though the first two episodes of the show’s eighth and final season are just shy of an hour — as TheWrap previously reported they would be — the final four are all super-sized installments. And yes that includes the long-awaited series finale, which clocks in at an hour and 20 minutes, and Episode 803, the big Battle of Winterfell one that took 55 nights’ worth of shooting to complete.

An individual with knowledge tells TheWrap there is a possibility the runtimes are subject to slight further adjustment from here.

SXSW Review: ‘Nothing Stays The Same’ Plays a Transcendent Tune with a Formulaic Approach

Nothing Stays The Same: The Story of The Saxon Pub functions as both a local interest story and something deserving of greater attention. The battle to keep Austin weird is very real as skyrocketing property values and a tech boom have priced out artists that have been responsible for making the city what it is. The story, thankfully, has a happy ending as one of the film’s executive producers, Greg Keller–a real estate agent who feels partly responsible for “selling Austin”–decides to preserve its funkiness.

Directed by Jeff Sandmann, Nothing Stays The Same is a minor documentary with excellent, occasionally transcendent performances by Austin luminaries like Bob Schneider, The Resentments, and Patrice Pike who graced the stage of the South Lamar Boulevard pub. Those of that have been making the trek to Austin for SXSW for the last ten years know have rapidly that neighborhood has changed.
