Actor Ian Somerhalder aims to find ‘Common Ground’ in Congress with agriculture-focused documentary

TV fans know him from “The Vampire Diaries” and Netflix’s “V Wars,” but now, thanks to his work in Washington, lawmakers know Ian Somerhalder as an advocate for regenerative farming.

The performer isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty as he works to break through the partisan gridlock with his new documentary touting the benefits of regenerative agriculture, “Common Ground.”

“You could almost argue that we are so divided that the only thing that we have in common is the ground: The soil is our common ground,” Somerhalder told ITK of the new film, which he executive produced and helped narrate.
