Who Is Austin Stowell? Nina Dobrev Might Have A New Actor Beau Who Is All About Fun... And Dolphins — PHOTOS

Step aside Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed, because it looks like we might have another hot Hollywood couple on our hands. It seems Nina Dobrev is dating Austin Stowell, according to E! News. On Wednesday, Dobrev and Stowell were reportedly kissing at the Hallmark Shoebox relaunch and 29th-birthday event in West Hollywood. Per an E! source, the two actors showed up together at the celebration, where they looked "very comfortable and happy together."

They seemingly went to the event together with a group of friends, but reportedly the two actors "spent a lot of time together at the Hallmark card station laughing and scooping up some of the witty offerings on display to take with them." E! also reports that Dobrev even said how much she's loving living in Los Angeles (she recently moved there after exiting The Vampire Diaries).

Hmm... do you think of one of those reasons is because of Stowell? There's a good chance, especially since two weeks ago they also attended a lovely and charitable dinner party with friends, including Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul. Whatever the case, if these two are a couple, they sure make one gorgeous duo.

Until we have confirmation, let's focus on Stowell and who the heck he is. I don't know about you, but I know quite a lot about Dobrev, especially since she starred as Elena Gilbert on TVD and once dated Ian Somerhalder. However, when it comes to Stowell, my knowledge is slim. So, here's what you need to know about the actor and possible beau of Nina Dobrev.

Dolphins Are His Middle Name

Anyone recall seeing Dolphin Tale and Dolphin Tale 2? Well, Stowell starred in both as Kyle Connellan. Also, he loves posing with dolphins, but who wouldn't? The creatures sure are beautiful and magical.

In addition to Dolphin Tale, you might also recognize Stowell for starring in TNT's Public Morals (as Sean O'Bannon), Oscar-winning film Whiplash (Ryan), and The Secret Life of the American Teenager (Jesse). Stowell will also be starring in Steven Spielberg's upcoming Bridge of Spies as Francis Gary Powers. The film also features Tom Hanks, Amy Ryan, and Alan Alda.

He Loves His Dog, A Lot

When you have a dog that cute, how could you not adore it immensely?

He Knows Cory Matthews

I repeat, Stowell knows Cory Matthews, aka Ben Savage from Boy Meets World. Now, I don't know if these two are friends, but they definitely got a picture together, which is enough to be jealous about, right?

He Likes To Have Fun

Based on the 30-year-old's Instagram, it sure looks like he loves to have fun and has a great sense of humor. I totally see why Nina might be attracted to him.

He Adores His Family

Most importantly, Stowell cherishes his family, which is something to admire him for. Family sure is everything.

Yep, Nina, I approve — if you're dating this very attractive man, who has a lot to offer.
