A huge congratulations goes out to Ian Somerhalder!
In case you haven’t heard the great news yet, the Vampire Diaries actor received a major honor at the 3rd Annual Noble Awards. The ceremony was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Friday evening (February 27) in Beverly Hills, Calif. and brought together some of the entertainment industry’s biggest philanthropists and humanitarians, including Patricia Arquette, David Arquette, Rosario Dawson, Jonathan Muray, and Gary Sinise. On behalf of Showtime’s Years of Living Dangerously, Ian showed up to receive a trophy designed by kids in the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ internal program, who were also in attendance. (For those unaware, Ian was actively involved with the film’s efforts in raising awareness on environmental issues.)
Best of all? Ian’s former Lost co-star Harold Perrineau, who played Michael Dawson on the popular ABC series, gave a heartfelt speech before his friend took to the stage.

Julie Plec is continuing to build her own repertory company.
The prolific producer has cast The Originals newbie Claudia Black in her CW pilot Cordon, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Based on the original Belgian series created by Carl Joos, Cordon examines what happens when a deadly epidemic breaks out in Atlanta and a large city quarantine is quickly enforced, leaving those stuck on the inside to fight for their lives. It tells the story of loved ones tragically torn apart, and how the society that grows inside the cordon reveals both the devolution of humanity and the birth of unlikely heroes.
Black will co-star as Dr. Sabine Lommers, representing the department of health and human services, she is the face of the government’s response. Determined to keep the public from panicking, she battles not only the deadly disease but the public’s perception as well.

A crooner is an actor as much as he is a singer. A voice that’s capable of transmitting blood and tears, of carrying the flesh and bone, the body of the singer through the airwaves: that’s a perfect crooning voice. Perhaps this is why actor Michael Malarkey chose the path of the crooner to explore his musical inclinations. In his songs, Malarkey makes use of his histrionic abilities to infuse life into his lyrics. The results? Scroll down and hear for yourself.
Fighting against the stigma that’s usually attached to actors-turned-singers is not easy. It is also not impossible. Malarkey, who was born in Beirut and, in his own words, is used to being an outsider, is trying to break that stigma by penning his own heartfelt songs and exploiting his capacity to transfer emotions through his voice. Fans of The Vampire Diaries, the show where Malarkey plays a vampire called Enzo, are probably already fans of his debut EP, Feed the Flames. For the rest of us, MTV IGGY spoke to Malarkey himself, in order to see what it’s all about.
