While talking to Entertainment Tonight, Ian revealed that he's totally down to return to Mystic Falls, but in a way that fans might not expect.
"I actually would love to talk to Jules [Julie Plec]. I would love to go and direct one of [the Legacies episodes]," Ian told Entertainment Tonight. "Because I know Paul [Wesley] went to do it and he called me and he's like, 'Bro, this is f*cking crazy.' Because it's all of our old sets, which is a time warp, 10 years ago. He's just going, 'Dude!' He was actually kind of emotional about it, he goes 'This is crazy!"
Ian also couldn't stop gushing about his memories from the show and how special it still is to him even years after it ended.
"We spent eight years on the show, and now it's two years later, which we're still talking about it while we're working on other things. That's a decade, 30 to 40. That's a very substantial piece of your life," he continued. "But I would actually love to go back and direct one. I love what they are doing. The show looks amazing, it's all of my old team."
While we might not be seeing him as Damon Salvatore anytime soon, just think of all the cute behind-the-scenes stuff he could share if he does get the chance to visit the Legacies set. Now that's something I could definitely get on board of.
