    This isn't fair!! They're both great and I love both of their characters. And those saying Ian can't act... well he's better then Kristen Stewart which is more then any one can really ask for.

    LOL, Ian Somerhalder is an awful actor. Dumb teenage girls wouldn't recognize talent even if it hit them in their faces.

    How if the he** did Jared Padalecki lose? That's insanity.
    I see it coming down to Jensen vs. Ian, and Jensen will win. That's how he rolls these things.

    Both of these are great actors, and both portray their characters really well, but i'd go with Ian every time...no one else could pull off a complex character like damon salvatore and make everyone love him. =D
