Somerhalder appeared on the big screen in Scott Mann's The Tournament, opposite Robert Carlyle, Ving Rhames and Kelly Hu. The film is about a battle that takes place every 10 years between 40 of the world's deadliest assassins.

On stage, Somerhalder starred off-Broadway in Trip Cullman's Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead, an unauthorized parody of Charles Schulz' comic strip Peanuts that follows the travails of a grown up Charlie Brown and the original gang as their beloved beagle dies.

Somerhalder co-starred with Eddie Kaye Thomas, Eliza Dushku, America Ferrera, Ari Graynor and Logan Marshall-Green.

Somerhalder recently starred in Lost City Raiders, opposite James Brolin. He also starred in the miniseries Marco Polo, playing the title character opposite Brian Dennehy and B.D Wong.
