“Gossip Girl’s” Simon Miller is coping with life as a hottie

HollywoodNews.com: When someone is proclaimed to be a hottie on “Gossip Girl,” they have to be especially hot — because Armani advertisement-level attractiveness is the rule of the day on the CW series that returns Monday (9/26) in its new 8 o’clock timeslot. Such is the case with Simon Miller, whose return as Patrick is causing a stir amongst “Gossip Girl” fans.

“I’m always shocked when I see someone saying ‘Simon Miller Hottie,’ or the hottest guy. I’m like, ‘You’re kidding,’” he insists. “I was definitely a late bloomer. I was more like the brooding poet type when I was in high school. I never felt like I was going to be one of the popular kids,” he says. “But acting, for me, has always been a way to explore other people I could have been in life.”

Miller is also still surprised to get recognized when he’s out and about.

'Vampire Diaries': Simon Miller signs on as the leader of the pack

Ancestry is key on "The Vampire Diaries," and the Lockwood family is no exception. We're about to learn a lot more about the Lockwood family curse -- in case you've been living under a rock, they're werewolves. Now, Simon Miller has been cast as the patriarch of the Lockwood pack, George Lockwood.

Miller, a professional photographer, is a relative newcomer to acting, though you might recognize him from short roles on "Gossip Girl" and "CSI" or his indie movie "Between Love & Goodbye."

With those good looks, I completely believe that this guy could've spawned Michael Trevino and Taylor Kinney.

Miller's first episode is "Memory Lane," the fourth episode of Season 2. Ladies and gentlemen, we have flashbacks! The episode, which is currently shooting in Atlanta, will introduce the Lockwood ancestors for the first time.
