Ian would relate the World Cup biting incident to his vampire show! According to the TV star, there may be a new vampire on the loose, and he just might be on the Uruguay National Football Team!
Looks like Ian Somerhalder found someone new to add to the cast of The Vampire Diaries. After Luis Suarez bit a player during the World Cup on June 24 (yep, this happened), Ian posted a picture on Instagram of a poster of Damon in Vampire Diaries with the soccer star over his shoulder — and he even had some apropos fangs! Too funny!
Ian Somerhalder Pokes Fun At World Cup Biter Luis Suarez
On June 24, during the Uruguay-Italy World Cup match, Luis bit Italian soccer player Giorgio Chiellini on his shoulder. Italian players were outraged that Luis wasn’t punished for the chomp, but meanwhile the meme-making internet had a field day!
And guess who was included in that funny bunch — none other than Ian! He posted a fake TVD poster featuring himself and Luis (fangs included) on Instagram and wrote, “Umm.. Apparently there’s a new cast member joining @vampirediaries…@luis16suarez!! #WorldCup2014 #LuisSuarez #IanSomerhalder.”
It sure looks like it, Ian!

This wasn’t the first time Luis used his teeth to foul another player. In 2013, he was banned for biting Branislav Ivanovic and in 2010, he was caught another time biting Ottman Bakkal.
His past aggressive biting behavior will make it that much easier for him to be banned this time around. However, since the players were so close, Luis can argue that he simply hit his mouth on Giorgio’s shoulder. Let’s see what happens!
Do you think Luis purposely bit Giorgio, HollywoodLifers? How about Ian’s post — pretty funny, right? Let us know what you are thinking!
