Boone Carlyle may have been the first major death on Lost, but Ian Somerhalder will rise as a vampire on the CW's new pilot, Vampire Diaries according to Variety.

Ian Somerhalder as Boone Carlyle

Somerhalder will play Damon, a smug vampire who goes from playful to evil at the snap of a finger.  Also joining the cast will be Zach Roerig (Friday Night Lights) as the jock Matt and Kayla Ewell (Entourage) as Matt's sister.

These fine looking young actors already join action legend Steve McQueen's grandson, Steven R. McQueen.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

Elena: Why don't you ever let anyone see the good in you?
Damon: When people see good they expect good. And I don't wanna live up to anyone's expectations.

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.
