Exclusive: Bret Easton Ellis, From Bedrooms to Living Rooms?

Is TV ready for Bret Easton Ellis? Ever since the 1985 release of his best-selling tale of L.A. youth-gone-amoral, Less Than Zero, young Hollywood — including television faves like James Van Der Beek, Ian Somerhalder and Austin Nichols — have populated the feature-film adaptations of Ellis' edgy, unsettling novels. Now, with the 25-years-in-the-waiting publication of the engrossing Zero sequel, Imperial Bedrooms, Ellis is gearing up to take on the small screen.

On the CW's breakout hit The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder plays a nearly 170-year-old man who — perhaps unwittingly — became a vampire as a teen.

"Right now, where I am, doing what I'm doing, it's exactly where I want to be," he says.
