Alexander Skarsgard & Ian Somerholder Want to Star in 'Fifty Shades of Grey': Who Should Get the Part? (POLL)


Fifty Shades of Grey may have started out as Twilight fan fiction, but there's two other on screen vampires that want a shot at playing the sexy Christian Grey. Both Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder and True Blood actor Alexander Skarsgard have expressed interest in playing the lead male role in the erotic novel-turned-movie.

For those of you living under a rock, E.L James' novel Fifty Shades of Grey follows a mousy college graduate Anastasia Steele who falls for a young, sexy entrepreneur named Christian Grey, who then attempts to lead her into the world of S&M.

Alexander, 35, is the latest to put his name in the ring for the part of the sexual exhibitionist, telling Access Hollywood:

"Where do I sign? ... He’s got a sex chamber? My character has that on True Blood. He’s got his little dungeon. ... I was born to play that part."
Not so fast Alex.

You may have some competition with Ian. "I absolutely would be up for that. It could be very, very amazing," The CW actor, 33, told Ryan Seacrest on KIIS-FM this past April. "I have the book and I just started reading it. That would be a pretty incredible thing, and hopefully that could pan out."

Ian added, "Beyond the shadow of a doubt, I think that would be a phenomenal opportunity!"

Who has your vote? Let us know in the poll below, and then check out Celebuzz's dream casting call for Fifty.

    I say Christian Bale could play the part of Christian Grey, the face I pictured as I read the series always was Christian Bale. He has the confidence, sex appeal and looks and body to play the part. He really should be casted.

    Does not have to pass for 27, several of the lead actors who want this role, cannot pass for 27 except for Rob. Age is the least of the film makers worries with this film. He would and is perfect.

    Yeah, Robert would be awesome in the role so much better than many of the others. He would be one of the actors I would pick for the role.

    Mr. Skargard is perfect for the role, tall enough, looks great naked, just darken the hair a bit, inspired casting is what it would be.

    Height?, the man is 5'9", too short and small boned.

  • Jen

    Neither Ian or Henry are, or will ever be Christian Grey for me, one is expressionless, the other does not even fit the description of the character, at all. But then I kind of figure the powers that be already know this. There are several others who would do the role justice. I am hoping that this film will not be ruined by giving into crazed fans.

    I've never taken any interests in hollywood stars until i read this book. I can't help but imagine Christian Bale as Mr. Grey. He is quite sophisticated, handsome and sexy in such a mysterious way, not to mention his acting skills and personality. He defintely fit the role very well. I look forward to see the movie with a real Christian Grey character an not just some pretty boys who just have the look but no inner soul whatsoever.

  • Susan

    OH YES PLEASE!! Henry would be perfect from his body to his hair!!!

    Not Christian Bale, he would ruin my image of CG. I think Taylor Kinney (Lady Ga Ga's beau), would be a perfect fit, he fit's the description in the book and he is absolutely gorgeous. If not, then definately Henry Cavill. CG has his shirt off alot, so the actor that plays him must have a nice body!!

    I truly hope they will choose a relatively unknown actor to play Christian Grey. Although I agre Christian Bale is a good looking actor he is however WAY TOO OLD TO PLAY THIS PART! You would not want Ana's character to played by an older actress, so c'mon get real!!!

  • Catherine
    Catherine

    I think Christian Bale is perfect for this role hands down. He doesn't look his age, he has the look, and the dark side. All the other guys look too "pretty" but Bale has that edge that's perfect for this character!

  • vanessa
    vanessa

    him!!!!!!!!!! i always picture him when im reading <3

  • Tammy89

    I agree 100%! But why do you say that his wife wouldn't let him do the role? Just curious.. :)

  • baleme
    baleme

    Christian Bale is NOT old at all. He can play ANY character convincingly. I'd give an arm and a leg to have play Grey and Anne Hathaway as Anastasia. Look at their names! It match!!!! Cant get enough of these two as Bruce and Selina. Goddamn it. Anastasia char description fits Anne perfectly...eyes too big for her face. They can always make the 2 chars slightly older in the film. But oh well, even if the WHOLE world wants him as Grey, i dont think Christian Bale will take this kind of role. His wife wont let him do it anyway. So even if we beg him, he wont do it. This is too commercial for him (he said no more after Batman) So we'll be LUCKY to have such a talented actor as Grey IF he even agrees. Ian Somerhalder and the rest are good looking, but i dont think they can BE the role...acting chops not there dude. I mean Ian is smouldering, yes, but his acting in VD left much to be desired. The most he can act is always raising his eyebrow and thats about it. Flat lined.

  • Tammy89
    Tammy89

    Come on guys, I dunno if he would even agree for the role. But I would be super happy if he did. Anyone watched Laurel Canyon? The car scene? He left me totally turned on and breathless, and he was just talking! Just imagine what magic he could do in this movie. Since we have to accept the fact that he would probably decline the role, my next choice would be Ian Somerhalder or Mat Bomer. :)

  • dhinie

    The best part about Christian Bale is that he doesn't look his age! I absolutely agree that Christian Bale should be Mr. Grey!

  • nerdangel
    nerdangel

    Christian Bale would make a perfect Christian Grey... He looks good with a shaved face or stubble. He can play a business man and a sexy player. Christian Bale has done and will do a perfect lip curve smile! I do like Ian Somerhalder or Jessie Pavelka also for the role. All 3 look amazing in a suit, have great features, and have the look (in their eyes) of someone who can seduce any female. I'll be honest that the Christian Grey that I pictured was a combination of actors instead of someone real, but that's what's great about reading!

    first of all putting Kirsten Stewart as Anastasia Steele in this glorious movie would do injustice since she is already Bella Swan in Twilight. Do you see the way she acts? There is no essence of passion in her acting. In the fourth Twilight movie where she and Edward were in their "honeymoon", she did not ignite strong passion towards Edward as you can see by her facial expressions. Bottom line she always has that awkward face, and Ana Steele has to be an innocent character who is at the same time playful towards Christian Grey. Does Kirsten Stewart fit those qualities? Ask yourselves.

  • Team Ian!

    lol there was no chemistry in Twilight. Neither Robert Pattinson nor Kristen Stewart can act.

    Yes! The notebook scene where he takes off her stockings is what I thought of when I read the "sock removing part" in the book. I don't think he will do the movie though :-(

  • Elle
    Elle

    For me, at least, I think it would look good, Kaya Scodelario as Ana, Holland Roden as Kate, Leighton Meester as Mia, Daniel Sharman as Elliot, and either Matt Bomer, Ian Somerhalder, Henry Cavill or Jamie Dornan as Christian, although I read the book and pictured Jamie Dornan as Christian.

  • Elle
    Elle

    No. Ana is suppose to be in her early 20, but she looks like she's 16 or something. It would look and feel wrong.

  • Elle
    Elle

    No. No, nope, not, don't, won't.

  • Elle
    Elle

    She couldn't pull it off. It's just not the kind of role she would fit in. She's a great actress, that's no doubt, but this kind of movie and this kind of role is not for her.

  • Elle
    Elle

    Nope. I don't think anyone even thought about Kaya Scodelario. She could make a great Ana, she's a great actress and she has the physical attributes described on the book, the hair, the skin, the eyes. She could play innocent and kinky at the same time, and she would look great with either Ian Somerhalder, Henry Cavill or Matt Bomer.

  • Elle
    Elle

    Meh! She's not quite what I imagined, but I could see her... no, I couldn't, though she's the best name of this list so far.

  • Elle
    Elle

    Okay now I know for sure whoever did this stupid list didn't read the book at all. Rihanna, please, that's just beyond stupid.

  • Elle
    Elle

    She can't even make two different facial expresions, how the hell do you want her to play a girl who gets fucked in every hole avaliable in a movie? That requires some serious facial expresions, besides, she's so dull.

  • Elle
    Elle

    I could see her as Kate, although I'd pictured Holland Roden, but if I'm not mistaken, Ana should look young, innocent and sweet... and well... Blake doesn't look like any of those things. Who the hell did this list anyway? Whoever you are, you're must not have read the book, or you're just stupid.

  • Elle
    Elle

    Hell to the no, baby.

  • Elle
    Elle

    Bitch, please, he shouldn't even be on this list.

  • Elle
    Elle

    I'm just going to laugh at this one.

  • Elle
    Elle

    I love Leo, but this is just absurd.

  • Elle
    Elle

    Please, God no! And I doubt that after Twilight, Robert will want to play anything remotely related to it. I doubt he would take the part anyway, and if he did I would just not watch the movie at all.

  • Elle
    Elle

    Sorry but no. He could never pass for 27, and besides, he might be hot but he's not that handsome, not enough to be 50 anyway.

  • Elle
    Elle

    Now, that's more like it. Somerhalder could totally play it out. He has the right amount of charm, his face is something so exotic and unique, and he sure can be sexy and mysterious. That's a better choice.

  • Elle
    Elle

    Ryan is hot as hell and a great actor, but he doesn't have the refined yet mesmerizing beauty Christian does. He would not be fit.

  • Elle
    Elle

    Please, whoever did this list is either dumb or didn't read the book at all! Fassbender could work for Taylor, but never Christian!

  • Elle
    Elle

    Whoever made this list seems to forget that Christian is 27 years old. Patrick Dempsey, Christian Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio, David Beckham, Micheal Fassbender and Alexander Skarsgard could never pass for 27 years old. They're all too old. Robert Pattinson is just unfit, and besides, I've had enough of him. Now, Ian Somerhalder, Matt Bomer, Jamie Dornan or Henry Cavill... those are the actors who seem more fit to play the part.

  • Xiomara
    Xiomara

    Yes yes yes pls!!! She can do it her sex scenes in Shamless are already hot she can do it with anyone!! :)

  • Chris
    Chris

    I agree wholeheartedly, he was also the first person I thought of. He's already proven his ability to play a character like Grey, so other than age (and there is something called "movie magic" - he's still youthful looking enough that I believe he can look like he's in his late 20s), I don't know why people don't think he's a good choice? And besides, he looks damn fine in a suit.

    Please refer to his GQ cover, not only his eyes are grey on that, he is wearing a gray tie and his hair is bronze and disheveled . That picture is what came to mind when I started to read the book. He is 6'1" and young enough to play a 27 yrd old. He has this cynical smirk that is sooo Grey.He can say so much by saying nothing at all . Ryan can totally portrait dark, watch Drive! When most women fell for him on the Notebook, I fell for him on Drive.

    From the very first time I read it, Christian Grey is Christian Bale. I dont know why, but he is definitely Bale!! Yes he's supposed to be 27 in the book, but no other actor comes close.

    Im sorry but Bale is no Christian Grey, Ian Somerhalder is the perfect man to play Christian Grey. He has the smouldering eyes and mysterious look, plus a mighty fine body to throw into the equation

  • Daniela Lopez

    YES YES YES IAN SOMERHALDER IS PERFECT FOR THE ROLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 NO OTHER!

    The problem with Christian Bale, other than being too old is that Christian Grey is a ilkeable and Bale has played so many mean spirited bad guys that I just can't get my head around him as Christian Grey. I don't like Bale at all for the role, the actor has to be likable to be believable even if he is dominant.

    Not for Grey. He'd be a good actor for Taylor.

  • Jessica Dennis

    HELL no

  • Jessica Dennis
    Jessica Dennis

    You would know yhst Ian is perfect for this if you are a vampire diaries fan. His acting has the potential for what he can give 50 fans on screen. He is naturally beautiful and has the attitude to fit the role. Definetly a wise choice if they were to cast him as Christian. As far as Anna goes I would love to see Nina D (his real life girlfriend and main girl on vampire diaries) but she is right to say she didn't think it was a good idea and that everyone would be reminded of Damon and Elena on VD. So my vote would be for Lucy Hale as Anna. Her performance on pretty little liars seems that she could pull this off. She can play innocent but she can play naughty too. They are both stunning people.

  • MC

    It should definitely be Christian Bale. All the other "younger" actors are just too "baby faced". Bale has the mature, sexy, mysterious, captivating and dominating look.

  • Sophie

  • Tammy

    Alex Pettyfer is my 1st pick! (see him on Magic Mike)...I think he can pull it off! Although Christian Bale did a great job playing an American Pyscho....I agree, I think he's too old for the part. sorry C.Bale ;( My 2cents :)

    I couldn't picture anyone else but him playing Christian Grey. While reading the book I kept thinking to myself "Man! He reminds me of Edward in Twilight!" & now I find out that the author E.L.

    If Christian was inspired by Robert Pattinson . . . who else would be more of a fit. Robert and Kristen have worked very hard for almost 5 years to build these characters, how can anyone expect someone else to compete with their knowledge of the characters. There is no one else that could explode the passion that Rob and Kris would bring to the screen. Millions of fans have waited so long to see this happen. They have not waited to see Ian or any of the other beautiful guys . . . just Rob and Kris

    I agree not the best pic of him, he was 100% my mr. Grey! And if you watch him as Eric, firstly he's damn hot, and secondly he has the height and frame I would expect, commands the screen and has the air of danger that Mr Grey needs

    "if they pick someone too good looking"?????? Um the character is Suppose to be ssoooo good looking that women, almost ALL women btw, blush & are rendered speechless around him. (that has to be pretty damn hot, & then some! B/c it'll take more than just good looks for that!). As for Rob, I love twilight & all... But he doesnt have the body for the role!

  • SJ

    Nope! ...almost comical

  • SJ

    Pretty eyes, but I think all these ladies are obviously Vampire Diary girls. Something's missing, maybe it's that he reminds me of a cross between Rob Lowe & Zac Efron. Neither of which are a Christian Grey!!!!

  • Zambra

    I dont think so. Kristen Stewart is NOT a good candidate for this. Ana has poise, she's intelligent, witty. Kristen kind of just does the same thing, role all the time. Shrugs, runs her hand through her hair, say "uhhh" a lot. BORING. Ana has class, poise, intelligence. She is witty and quick with words...Maybe as Leila?

  • Leyla

    Um... YES! Although Matt Bomer could do well for the role, too. I also like either Lyndsy Fonseca or Lucy Hale for the role of Ana. They both have those big blue eyes and that innocence that's in Ana.

    Um, definitely!!! In fact while reading the book I imagined him to look exactly like him. He's described like him, and although he might be older, he gives off the right vibe for the character. The other actors listed are too cute for this role, Bale would be perfect!

    Hell Yes, Christian Bale is Christian Grey. No, he is not too old. These younger guys are lame in the acting department. He has the looks and he the acting ability to provide depth to this character. He doesn't like romantic roles, so he probably won't consider it, but I wish he would :)

    Whether you guys like it or not, E L James, the author of this wonderful trilogy, has said that EDWARD AND BELLA were her main inspirations for Christian and Ana... So, in reality, I think the producers will look to the Twilight cast before anyone else... Besides, he would do the part like no one else could. The word is, if they pick someone too good-looking then it won't be right.. I want ROB PATTINSON to play Christian Grey. He looks the part, he has done graphic sex scenes already, he (as proved in Twilight) can be intense, he can cry and be emotional, or closed off, and he can be scary and livid as well - plus, HE'S EDWARD CULLEN, AKA, E L JAMES' INSPIRATION FOR THE CHARACTER OF CHRISTIAN. He is MADE for this part. I VOTE PATTINSON!

    Absolutly!! The book was based on the Edward and Bella and their chemistry would just burn the theater screen, hot hot hot..I don't think they would consider it and if they did I think they would only do it together. When you read the book, there are so many implications that this is Edward and Bella. They would so tear up the screen with wild, wantom sex.

    Personally, ya I see him as "Edward" but damn could you imagine the chemistry they had between them in Twilight, It'd be fifty millions time better here. He's a very sultry man, think him and Kstew would be a sexy combo and c'mon who ever read this book is sexy :)

  • Celia Bingham
    Celia Bingham

    Perfection. Look at those grey eyes. The author had to have been looking at a picture of him while writing.

  • Celia Bingham

    Although gorgeous, too old and not at all description.

    Too old.

    She's a different type, not an Ana. Emma Watson on the other hand has grown up to be quite the lady. I think she would make a great Ana.

  • Celia Bingham
    Celia Bingham

    Absolutely not. Anna is innocent...she is clearly not. And are we forgetting she's not pale?

    Ian Somerhalder and Emma Watson. Boom!

  • Constance Stepney-Totten

    NO!!!!!! i would only be able to see him as Edward if he plays the role of Christian i don't think he would be able to separate the two...

    OMG!!! Yes ! He is perfect:) The whole time I read the book I had him in mind!!! He is so mysterious and dark and super sexy!! He is Christian Grey!

  • Lo

    I think Alexander Skarsgard would be perfect... plus, I've seen him wearing "grey slacks that hang from his hips" perfectly!!!

  • jenn

    Hayden Christensen would be perfect!!

  • debi

    no way ! Garrett Hedlund

  • Cacey
    Cacey

    Anna Kendrick will be perfect as Anastasia Steele. I think she is the total physical embodiment of this character, so much so, that I kept picturing her in my head as I read it. No other actress on this list can pull off the breadth of this story and Anastasia's witty banter the way that Anna Kendrick will. I really hope that she'll be considered. She would NAIL this role!

  • nonna

    She would do best as Leila, not Ana.

    not just heck no, but HELL no!!!!

  • Danika Reilly
    Danika Reilly

    I see her and Alexander Skarsgard, think of it both are great actors that we've seen be hard and soft and both have proven from the MA shows that they star on that they can handle the scenes from the book and be uninhibited

  • Kay
    Kay

    Alex Pettyfer is a baby! He is like 22. No way looks old or sophisticated enough to play Christian!

  • Katy Fletcher
    Katy Fletcher

    He is too old but she does describe him with copper hair, tall and lean. And as an actor I think he would do a great job as Christian grey. He's the actor I would love to have spank me!

  • Michelle Allen

    Omg please no!!!

    Omg NO!!!!!!!!!

    Eww no and once again he is WAY too old!!!

    I know the character is 27, but he would have made a perfect Mr. Grey!

  • yep

    yep he's our man, when I was readind the book I saw Ian Somerhalder as Grey he would be perfect, sexy georgeous his eyes, his jaw, smile, he is Grey !!!

  • Heidi G
    Heidi G

    These guys are too OLD! Ryan Gosling is too 'been there done that'. How many movies do we need to see him in? Remember....Christian is beyond gorgeous, and he is young....my suggestion is ALEX PETTYFER! He is gorgeous, has blondish copper messy hair and a sexy brooding look which also seems deeply troubled. He looks fab in and out of clothes. My instincts are that he would be quite steamy in the sack too!

  • anon
    anon

    omg. how amazing would it be if ian was christian and emily didonato was ana. i know shes only a model but shes perfect. blue eyes dark hair. super pretty. amazing couple.

  • Laura

  • Flava

    How about Chris Hemsworth? Tall, has Fifty's build, VERY good looking and young. He's who i pictured when reading it.

  • MandyP
    MandyP

    No way! She is too "sexy" to be Anastasia. THis role needs to be someone who is naive and simple, not someone who looks like they are high all the time!

    Seen way too much of him.... there are other actors other then Kristen Stuart and Rob Pattinson!!!!

  • 50shadesfan

    Michael Fassbender fits the Christian Grey character perfectly - aint no doubt!!

  • Nono
    Nono

    Another joke!

  • Nono
    Nono

    Has the right look, but she does not look sensual for the part.

  • Nono
    Nono

    Not at all the right fit

  • Nono
    Nono

    Sorry Ana, no way

  • Nono
    Nono

    Not right either

  • Nono
    Nono

    this is a joke

  • Nono
    Nono

    She has the right look, but again too much twilight exposure, so not a good fit for her. I love Kristen nonetheless. They need to look for someone with her coloring and beauty to play the party

  • Nono
    Nono

    got to be kidding!

  • Nono
    Nono

    hell no

  • Nono
    Nono

    tooo old

    too old

  • Nono

    Too old.

  • Nono

    Love you Rob. But too much exposure in Twilight films, which I loved the chemistry between you and Kristen. Nothing can compare to that chemistry. Rob move on to bigger things

  • Nono
    Nono

    Nope, I would not watch this move if it was Alexander. Sorry Alex, love you anyway

  • Nono
    Nono

    I love Ian, but he is still not the right Christian.

  • Nono
    Nono

    I would have to see him with dark to consider. But no...I always think of him in the Notebook

  • Nono
    Nono

    Too old

  • Nono
    Nono

    I would have definitly said Christian Bale, had he been younger. He would have been the perfect Christian.

  • susan
    susan

    He is the best pick of those listed, not too old, he is in great shape for the "hip" scenes, the eyes and jaw. But I think "Justin Hartley should be the role. He is new and not yet seen in a type (vampire). I do love Ian and all others fail next to him, but for this role Justin is the way to go. Copper hair and all!

  • natalie
    natalie

    NO WAY. Christian Bale is fugly with a capital F. Besides, he's way too old, Christian Grey is supposed to be 27!!

  • Sam
    Sam

    Emmy Rossum & Matt Bomer would be perfect!!

  • Betsy Charles
    Betsy Charles

    how about bradley cooper instead????

  • Pamela Paras
    Pamela Paras

    NO. Absolutely not. He'll always be Cedric Diggory to me... and I soooo do not think of Mr. Hufflepuff as king of BDSM. Besides, I am so sick of hearing about Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stuart that I could puke. Let's leave them in Forks. and get a seasoned sex pot to portray Christian Grey

  • Pamela Paras
    Pamela Paras

    Yes. He's my second choice to portay FIFTY on the big screen.

  • Pamela Paras
    Pamela Paras

    Oh my gosh! I've loved Michael Fassbender since he played Azazeal in the British show "HEX." He would make a freaking awesome Christian Grey. As a matter of fact, he was the FIRST person of whom I thought when reading the books.

  • Krista
    Krista

    Sam Worthington would be a good contender

  • Krista
    Krista

    How about Sam Worthington?

  • Vanessa
    Vanessa

    He totally would nail this role!!

  • Christina
    Christina

    While I love both Ian and Alex, I'm all for Matt Bomer or Henry Cavill to play the role of Christian. They're both gorgeous and charismatic...and sexy...that doesn't hurt, either!

  • PB
    PB

    A younger Rob Lowe would be perfect! My vote goes to Ian S.

  • Jenny P.
    Jenny P.

    Oh, Mila Kunis would be a great Ana, even though she is older than the character - she is gorgeous and there is a certain softness about her.

  • Angel-Ramona Reynolds-Hatfield
    Angel-Ramona Reynolds-Hatfield

    I'd take either of them! However, if Ian fits the description of the character better, then it should be him.

  • just me
    just me

    i made my own list of actors for the part of Christian:): 1. Robert Pattinson 2. John Hamm 3. Matt Bomer 4. Ian Somerhalder now let's see. Robert is the natural choice, especially after playing Eric Packer there is no doubt he will pull it off. but i am sure if you ask him, he will run away as fast as he can:D. now John would do great Chr., too bad he is much older than Chr. Matt..*sigh*.. is also good, the problem is that if i see him in the movie i will be disturbed by the thought that he is kind of unavailable, if you know what i mean ... that leaves me with Ian. he is sexy, handsome and a good actor. that's just it's hard for me to picture vulnerable Damon getting hurt by Elena and others all time.. wait! maybe this is what Fifty needs? okay, guess i just found the right guy, Ian Somerhalder ! as for Ana, i don't really care, @Veronica's choice seems good enough.

  • just me
    just me

    sorry, but Alexander has nothing to do with Christian. somehow i can imagine everyone in the list but not him, not even going to see it if he gets the role. not that anyone cares;) but there has to be at least formal resemblance.

  • just me
    just me

    this is my "list" of actors for the part of Christian: 1. Robert Pattinson 2. John Hamm 3. Matt Bomer 4. Ian Somerhalder now let's see. Robert is the natural choice but i am sure he will run away the moment you ask him if he is interested in the role:) John would do great Chr. but is, sorry, too old for playing 28-years old. Matt..*sigh*.. is hot but casting him seems wrong coz' if i see him in the movie i would be disturbed by the thought that he is kind of unavailable, if you know what i mean. that leaves me with Ian:) don't get me wrong, he is handsome, sexy and is a good actor. i just don't picture him as a tough "master of his own universe" what Christian is. i used to see "vulnerable" gorgeous Damon getting hurt by Elena and others all time... wait..maybe this is exactly what happens to Christian? okay, guess i found him, Ian Somerhalder for the role of Christian Grey!:) as for Ana, i don't really care, @Veronica's choice seems good enough.

    Ian as Christian yes :) I think Crystal Reed (the girl from Teen Wolf) would be lovely for the part of Ana. Her look is soft and naturally pretty, doesn't need all that makeup.

  • ernie
    ernie

    I believe Robert Pattinson is the very fist choice for this. He would be the dumbest person in Hollywood not to fight for the part that was written with him in mind, not only of the author, but of all the original readers of the fanfic. It would cement his box office status, which is very questionable beyond Twilight. Besides, didn't he recently say that there are no characters being written with him in mind? Well, here's his chance.

    If they want raise this movie above high school fanfiction, they will get Alexander to play the role. He's actually got the acting chops, the looks and the presence to pull it off.

  • Jasmine

    No!!!! Ian absolutely is the one. Love who the others ARE but they are no Christian Grey

  • chelsear

    I agree with you. After it came out last week that Ian was interested in the role, I couldn't look at him the same on Vampire Diaries :)

  • openyoureyesppl

    No question about it..Ian Somerhalder. Has anyone even read the books?? Dark hair ..light eyes..and a mysterious look. Alexander Skarsgard is not that attractive and definitely not as mysterious as Mr. Somerhalder.

    Ian Somerhalder for sure!!!!!

    Alexander Skarsgard all the way! :)

    Absolutely Ian that is not even a question that should be asked I can see Christian being played by him a handsome, tall, dark hair guy.

  • chelsear
    chelsear

    Alexander is hot, but he looks too old to play Christian. Ian is a perfect pick. I could also see Matt Bomer or Henry Cavill in the role of Christan. I also love Anna Kendrick for Anastasia. She is a great actress!

  • Nazaneen Afifa

    Is this even a question? IAN FTW.

  • smusic

    Ian is too short--the character is physically imposing as well as handsome--unless you get a really short actress Alexander would fit the bill indeed.

  • mel
    mel

    Neither one should get the role. I read the original from Icy and don't think either one fits. They may have good looks, but I don't think they can pull off the attitude of Christian.

  • Heather
    Heather

    Seriously? So unfair. Both of them would be great in the film.

  • shelley

    I have said from day one, that if Robert didn't take the roll, Ian is the only one who could do the roll and own it.

  • Joanna

    meaning he should get the part!

    Alexander Skarsgard is way hotter than Ian!!!
