With Lionsgate recently announcing television rights to Sylvia Day's "Crossfire" novels, fans are wondering who will play Gideon Cross in the first book-to-TV "Bared to You," and one of the possible contenders include Ian Somerhalder.

According to IBTIMES, fans are now looking to Somerhalder, 34, to play the sexy and seductive Gideon Cross in the highly anticipated "Bared to You" television series.

Somerhalder plays the popular vampire Damon Salvatore in CW TV series "The Vampire Diaries." His brooding looks and sexy smile make him one of the top contenders for the role.

Fans are looking elsewhere for Somerhalder since recent news surfaced that "Fifty Shades of Grey" author E.L. James does not want him to play the lead role of Christian Grey in her upcoming movie.


"Crossfire's" Gideon Cross has similar characteristics found in Christian Grey: a handsome billionaire with a dark past. For this reason, Ian Somerhalder becomes a potential actor for the upcoming TV role, and the actor's casting situation was comparable to a door closing shut but a window opening somewhere.

There are many other sexy actors up for the part of Gideon.

IMDb came up with some casting potentials. Those actors include Matt Bomer, Tom Welling, and Taylor Kitsch. IBTimes said that "Man of Steel" Superman actor Henry Cavill or British supermodel David Gandy could play Gideon.

Lionsgate announced on Aug. 5 that it optioned the rights to the "Crossfire" series.

The synopsis was revealed:

The CROSSFIRE series centers on Eva Tramell, a young up-and comer in the advertising world, and billionaire businessman, Gideon Cross who are both trying to overcome their devastating and abusive pasts.  As they are intensely drawn to one another, both physically and emotionally, the two must find a way to heal each other in order to move on and establish a healthy romantic relationship. Populated with a diverse cast of secondary characters and a vibrant Manhattan setting, CROSSFIRE is both a contemporary and timeless tale of love and the fight for redemption.

"Bared to You" is described:

Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness...

He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I'd never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily...

Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other's most private wounds... and desires.

The bonds of his love transformed me, even as I prayed that the torment of our pasts didn't tear us apart...
