Ian Somerhalder has jump-started his post-Vampire Diaries career with a role as Harkin Langham in The Anomaly.

We caught up with him on the set of Noel Clarke’s smart sci-fi drama, which has the gimmick of a man trapped in time – 9 minutes and 43 seconds to be exact here – until he can figure out what the hell is happening to him.

Here’s what he had to say.

Here’s what he had to say.

It’s a metaphor for sticking it to The Man

It has this Memento meets Bourne Identity thing. This man (Clarke) has found himself in the midst of a corporate biotechnological revolution. He’s just fighting to survive and understand it.

It’s a tangible metaphor for us. We are living in a biotechnological revolution where we are the guinea pigs.

There’s a Radiohead song where one of the lyrics is ‘We are the dollars and cents, and the pounds and pence,’ and that’s what we equal to these big a** companies.

Seriously, it’s really profound

The film raises a great question. By mid-century the population will be nine billion, which is a lot of people.

You have to ask yourself, by virtue of the fact that we are exceeding our resource pool at such an alarming rate, who and what is going to slow us down?

Dr Langham (Brian Cox) has in a very unethical way. He’s thought, ‘Instead of people killing each other and destroying the world, I know how to keep peace and slow this process of us destroying ourselves.’

This is what he’d do if he had 9 minutes 43 seconds left on Earth

I would call all the family and friends that I could. I’d probably post something on Twitter or Facebook.

Then I would sit under a tree or at the beach with a camera and basically throw out some really thoughtful notions to the public to please think about what it is that you need as opposed to what you want.

We need to slow this depletion of our resource pool and give back as much as we take because it’s the only way we’re going to survive.

The Anomaly is out in cinemas this Friday
