The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder Gets ANIMATED About Season 4 (VIDEO)

BACKSTORY: Although the gracious publicists of The CW allowed us to film our Comic-Con interviews with with Steven R. McQueen, Zach Roerig, and Michael Trevino, we were not allowed to do so for the show's trio of marquee stars. But it wasn't because Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev, and Ian Somerhalder were divas or anything like that, it probably had more to do with other, fancier, paper-based outlets having exclusive rights to on-camera interviews. Who even knows!? Anyway, we were limited to audio-only recordings, which, since the actors at that time still had no real knowledge of the upcoming season, meant the interviews weren't the most informative ones I've ever experienced. But one major thing I took away was just how hilarious Somerhalder is. Seriously, he worked that roundtable like no other, and any written transcription of his answers will never be as funny as his in-person riffing. So in order to try and do him justice, I came up with THIS video workaround. Hope you like it!

The Vampire Diaries Season 4 premieres Thursday, October 11 at 8pm on The CW.

Can we elect Price President? Or at least President of TV.com? Or at least the CW?

Has TV.com given you the pay raise you deserve? While they're at it, they should get the CW and MTV to chip in too. I swear, sometimes I just go through the motions of watching the shows just to read your recaps. That's how I started on Teen Wolf and TSC. You're beyond awesome. :)

at the risk of sounding fan-girl i really think that we are kindred spirits except for i don't draw and don't really get computers and haven't talked to famous people (except a member of sugar ray who was decidedly NOT mark mcgrath) but yeah except for all those things we are def. soul mates

(real talk: i think you're one of the most fantastic of the fantastic people i'll never meet)

Paper-based outlets? They still have those? A paper about TV in the age of the Internet is like a papyrus about books in the time of radio. Also, what exactly does a paper-based outlet do with an on-camera interview? Flip-book?

Haha OMG I love this! I can't wait for the new season to start. I can't wait to get back to your photo recaps. Side note: I watched both seasons of teen wolf (after the season 2 finale go figure. thanks internet) so I could fully appreciate your photo recaps. Turns out that show is awesome too lol.

I miss Teen Wolf already, but I'm getting TVD fever so bad right now. Circle of life!

Aww, don't use the word "Circle" It just makes me think of the secret kind.

Same here. Everytime someone says "circle", I fall into a sadness that only lasts for a minute or 2.

Once you get into Teen Wolf, there's no coming out. It sucks you in and it doesn't let you go! Kind of like TVD does to people too, except I like Teen Wolf more now.

I kinda do too now in a way :O weird how that works.. Of course, once I see Klaus on screen and everyone from TVD I'm sure there will be some sort of temporal paradigm shift.

Haha true. I was avoiding watching the show because I have fully grown out of my mtv watching phase of life, but then I was really bored one night and my TiVo was empty and a new obsession was made lol.

I would actually recommend Awkward. to you as well. It's on MTV like Teen Wolf, but in my opinion, it's one of the best and most well written comedy series today. You've gotta watch it!

Trust me, it's worth it! *temps temps temps*

Ah don't tempt me. I'm trying to cut down on my tv watching (I'm not very good at that though lol).

How did Price become so awesome did he just wake up to it one morning like a massive hangover of cool awesome-ness?

I love this foray into a new genre... the cartoony short film. I already laugh so hard that I tear up on your TVD recaps (Dude... Werewolf Gatorade!) Thank you so much for making my day better whenever there is a new post from Price.

Thank you Price for making life funnier, therefore, better.

That makes my day, thanks so much. And the answer is no, I don't wake up in the mornings.

Yay, hopefully I'm the first one to comment. I just registered so I can finally start commenting on your posts. I've been reading your stuff since midseason 2 of TVD and I love your work. I even go back and reread the posts just to laugh. Is it weird that while I'm watching TVD or Teen Wolf I think about what you will say in your post the next day? (That's just a testament to how much I love these posts.) This was hilarious, love the art/animation, not sure how you created it but love it. Will continue to comment now that I've registered.

I tried to comment first, literally minutes after the post, but it didn't come through:(



Anyway, that was hilarious. Can't wait for the show and the recaps to come back.

Price, you're the best! This fall won't be nearly as exciting as last season when you were Photo recapping TVD and The Secret Circle (RIP Show. <3 you. Miss you) though. But we'll make it through!
