‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 5: Ian Somerhalder, Russian talk show star?

Ian SomerhalderIan Somerhalder’s tour of Russia continued this weekend following an appearance at a Q&A session with fans, and it ended up leading him to a place in which there is sure to be some hilarity a little later in the week.

In a new post on his Instagram page, the actor did his part to tease what is going to be an appearance on a Russian talk show a little later in the week, and it sounds like at least one person in the audience got an opportunity to be a little closer to Ian that he ever bargained for:

“Just finished Russian Talk show Ivan Urgant! So fun talking The Ivana Chubbuck Technique and doing a sexual fantasy exercise with some unsuspecting audience member.Thank you Irina for letting me mentally undress you TV.The show airs on May 29th in Russia. (sic).”

Hopefully around the time this special ends up airing, we will get more of a sense of the sort of fun that Russian TV can provide (which we are excited to see, given that we are not a connoisseur of this sort of programming). This can be a fun way to not only see how an actor like Ian works with a different sort of audience, but also have an opportunity to see how a very different sort of audience reacts to a big-name American star like Ian. The actor’s tour is set to continue around Europe and Asia over the months ahead, but he will be back in America later this summer for both Comic-Con and “The Vampire Diaries” season 5.
