According to Comic Book, IDW Entertainment President David Ozer cited Ian Somerhalder as the ideal choice for the V-Wars adaptation, revealing his work on The Vampire Diaries has offered the actor a "keen understanding" of the vampire genre. Surprisingly, his role in V-Wars has Somerhalder hanging up his fangs to assume the role of the very human Dr. Luther Swann, who is introduced to the horrific world of vampires when a mysterious disease transforms his best friend, Michael Fayne, into a murderous predator who feeds on other humans. As the disease spreads and more people are transformed, society fractures into opposing camps pitting normal people against the growing number of these vampires. Michael then goes on to become a powerful leader of other vampires.
The streaming giant has given a 10-episode order to V-Wars, a new bloodsucking drama based on the series of books of the same name edited by Jonathan Maberry (Rot & Ruin, Dead of Night) and published by IDW. However, numerous actor's Vampire Diaries fans are sure to follow him to the V-Wars Netflix series for the latest chapter in his career.
