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!”
