Selected Awards and Honors:
Previous Cosmo Awards:
Ian Somerhalder is now best known for television roles on Lost and as the vampire Damon Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries. But in 2002, at the time of his first Cosmo nomination, he was largely unknown, having appeared in the short-lived television series Young Americans and a small role in Life as a House, and for modeling in Abercrombie & Fitch catalogs. Then in 2002 he received his largest silver screen acting role to date as Paul Denton in Roger Avery's adaptation of The Rules of Attraction. The performance earned him a Cosmo nomination, one of only two nominations the film received.
