During an interview with MTV, Gomez, 19, spilled the beans on taking on the role of Anastasia Steele -- a college student who gets involved in an S&M relationship with millionaire Christian Grey -- in E.L. James' upcoming erotica adaptation.
What does SelGo think about the part?
"I know I'm taking risks but I don't think I could do that," she said of the racy role. "That would be a little too much for me."
"When they told me about the skit, I didn't know what [the book] was about, so I started to read it and was like, oh, this is spicy, I thought it was good, it was intriguing," she added. "The skit was really funny."
Since she's out of the running, who does Selena think should star in the movie instead?
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.
NOOOO HE NEEDS DARK, COMPLICATED EYES. NO BLUE EYES
I Want Matt Bomer
I like Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Alexis Bledel, Jessica Lowndes, and Lucy Hale for Ana.
For Christian Ryan Phillippe, Matt Bomer, or Colin Egglesfield.
ian is perfectly fit for christian grey role!!!!!!!!those gray, tantalizing eyes. . . . very seductive and controlling...(n_n)
Christian Bale would be perfect for the role, he is handsome and intense.
I think paul walker would be PERFECT but nobody has mentioned him yet!
stephen amell or ian somerhalder!!! need someone young enough, with that gaze, and who can play vulnerable!!
yes david is a little too old. I was thinking Zac Efron.
HE IS DEFINITELY CHRISTIAN
If they put her in this role, I will literally stop watching movies. If anyone thinks she's a good actress, they really don't get what acting is....!!!
Only IAN SOMERHALDER for Christian Grey and for Anastasia:
Not cute enough!
She is too old. Ana is 21-22.
This man would also be wonderful in the role.
This one is okay.
Would not waste my money or my time with this one. Not even close. Simply put, too short.
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.
Sad for you, no taste :(
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.
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 personally envision Arie Ludenyk from Bacherlorette as Christian... Just saying :) who knows if he can act, but I can dream!
No Way!! he is Just awful. Matt Bomer any day.
Not Feeling it!
HHHHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLL NNNNNNNOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! She's the worst actress. It WONT WORK!!!!!!
It has to be Robert Pattinson and Kristin Steward, no one else fits the parts as well as they do.
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.
OH YES PLEASE!! Henry would be perfect from his body to his hair!!!
I think his look is perfect but he doesn't have the body
Henry Cavill would be perfect for Christian Grey!!!
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!!
yes we need to say more=please put the shirt back...
Christian Grey = Matt Bomer
Anastasia = Leighton Meester
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!!!
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!
him!!!!!!!!!! i always picture him when im reading <3
I agree 100%! But why do you say that his wife wouldn't let him do the role? Just curious.. :)
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.
Please, God, no. Ana is supposed to be ATTRACTIVE!
I pictured her as Ana too! And, this is weird because of the whole first-name thing, but Christian Bale as Grey. Perfection.
Just saw kristen stewart as someone to play anastasia! haha! Go figure! Hell no to both of them! If I had to choose it would be Ian Somerhalder and Emmy Rossum from this list. Ian especially!!!!!!
Ewww No!!! next they'll tell me kristen stewart as anastasia! hell no! gross!
YES!!!!!!!!! HE WOULD BE COMPLETELY PERFECT FOR THE ROLE!!!! HE LOOKS UNBELIEVABLY PERFECT!!! I bet they wont..... they never cast anyone as perfect as it should be!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! HORRIBLE ACTRESS!!!!!!!!!! I CANNNOT STAND HER TONE OF VOICE EITHER! SHE HAS A DEEPER VOICE THAN EDWARD!!!!!! I AM TIRED OF HER!!! NO! I WONT WATCH IT!
NO. Keep her in Twilight please.
NO. He doesn't fit any of the author's description on Christian Grey. I believe Ian Somerhalder is THE ONE!
JEEZ. He's too effin' old for the role! =_______=
Christian bale is so not right for the part, too old and not beautiful enough. Matt boomer or henry cavill would be perfect!!
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. :)
i think matt dallas is perfect to cast as christian grey
To Angelica...and he's supposed to look like a girl WHY?
He looks like Adam Lambert's only SLIGHTLY straighter brother.
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!
Perfect for the Part!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A big N-O. Who did this stupid list?
He is exactly what the book described on. Grey eyes with sex hair. Looks like young enough to be 27 to 28 years old and perfect for the height. And He is Fucking HOT.
I think yes or Tom wellings
Mr Grey would be very pleased!
Not even close
Too much of a masculine jaw
Sry, just doesn't do it for me
Over used with twilight, sry
Do not think of Christian when looking at this guy
Ryan Gosling - perfect.
I can see him as Christian. Just a hair color change. When Robert Redford was young he would have been perfect, perfect!!
Jason Lewis would be the perfect Christian!
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.
no on Shailene............
has to be Jenson Ackles for Christian, Nina Dobrev for Anna, Jennifer Love Hewiit for Leila, Mischa Barton for Kate, Joshua Jackson fro Elliot an Kim Catrall for Elana!
Oooooh yeah! The gray pants would look fine hanging from those hips...That way.
yuck not sexy enough
hell yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaah :D :D :D
She could probably pull it off, she looks innocent enough and I'm sure she can get a little nasty : )
Yes, agree with everyone else, she would be perfect as Kate!
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 :-(
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.
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.
No, nope, not, don't, won't.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hell to the no, baby.
Bitch, please, he shouldn't even be on this list.
I'm just going to laugh at this one.
I love Leo, but this is just absurd.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Please, whoever did this list is either dumb or didn't read the book at all! Fassbender could work for Taylor, but never Christian!
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.
Yes yes yes pls!!! She can do it her sex scenes in Shamless are already hot she can do it with anyone!! :)
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.
Yes Emmy Rossum!!!! She was GREAT on shameless!
opinion on who should play Christian Grey is... Chace Crawford! :)
I feel as though Leo has more than the acting capability for the role and anybody who doesn't think he is smoldering is an idiot....... No wait I mean total ass!
I think Ryan Reynolds would play the part of Christian Grey!
too bad this isnt a very good pic of him.... and its funny cause i pictured him while reading, he just has to darken his hair, he just fits perfectly, smooth but firm when he talks, ANYONE remember when he had that girl in the swing in true blood?? hes OMG perfect!
you are exactly right!!!!!!!!!!! for some reason after getting the feel of the character I kept picturing him as christian...all he needs is to darken his hair... raawaaarrrrwwww LOL
Noooo, please please can we have actor James Franco as Grey xx
William Levy will be a great Christian. Did you see him on DWTS? He the sex appeal to be a great Christian. Tall dark and handsome an d great swx appeal.
am i misunderstood or is christian grey supposed to be the most beautiful black man we have ever layed our eyes upon
yes this is my christian...soooo fucken hot...
He is not Christian Grey!!!! It would be awful! Im not even sure I want to see this movie, I dont want it to ruin the books for me... Kinda like my own images. I loved the books, the way the characters were, I hope the movie doesnt screw up!
He is so who I have visualizing through all of the books! He is dark, mysterious, witty, fun, protective, sexy.....and those eyes..............I think alongside Alexis Bledel you couldn't go wrong!!!! The movie would be perfect!! ;-)
Leo would be perfect in this role!! but there is no way he would consider it. its such a shame because no one could do a better job
I say Gerard Butler. Yes he's a little older than Christian but lets face it, he's a good actor and all sorts of stuff can be done by make up and film production teams now!
Handsome, tall, has the hair, stubble and the class as well as looking hot in casual clothes!!
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.
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.
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.
Matt Bomer all the way
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 LOVE IAN. BUT HE'S NO CHRISTIAN GREY. i AGREE WITH EMILY. ALEX S.
HELL NO!!! NOT EVEN CLOSE
no he's not sexy enough
No ryan gosling. he's too...i dont know. not right for the part. i think that christian can pull it off. if he can play sexy ass patrick bateman, he can play even sexier christian grey.
I also think robert pattinson can play as CH. he looks emotionally damaged and he's sexy as hell.
Yeah he has the looks but is he good enough of an actor to pull off fifty...? I picture him more as Elliot.
Miss Steele, was a virgin....in the begining of the book....Rihanna, would be far too at home in the play room......there is no way she could be Anna....
Christain Bale would be perfect....
btw- why is everyone posting about some of the choices as, "2 old" um, movies are to be LIKE to the book... they are NEVER an exact replica of the book. ??????
please NO! I really want to see the movie, I won't if Rob is lead! who is this guy anyway? ... Leo D, is PERFECT!!!
Yuk.... he doesn't look 27.... nor is he good looking.....
How about someone good looking.... none of these are? Christian is suppose to be the hottest man alive that women everywhere stare at him.... all of these are horrible choices.
Chris Hemsworth would be the perfect Christian Grey!!!
You forgot Matt Bomer or Henry Cavill as Christian Grey
YES EMMY WOULD BE PERFECT!!!
Is this a joke?
Worst choice!! Puhlease! He's already edward! Come on ppl!
Ryan gosling dammit! He's a really talented actor, good looking, sexy... And he fits the part... He has played a lot of those dark characters type and to play a sexy dom is nothing to him!!! Ryan all the way!!!
Thought Christian was suppose to have blonde/dirty blonde hair? Not what I pictured but better than Robert
Nooooo!! Need a new face!!
NOOOOOO! Need a new refreshed face!!
Yesss! Dirty blonde with a rough edge business look!
YES!! Christian Bale is definately the best choice. He may be older then the other actors being looked at but he does not look his age! Hes sexy, fierce, and could definately pull of being a dom. LOVE IT!!
The closest ones to the way the author makes you imagine Christian to be are definitely David Beckham and Ian. The others don't come close...also maybe Channing Tatum, :-D
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
I confess to being one of these girls....I also see your point of view-but having seen how intense a character he plays in vd he is literally perfect(in my opinion) to be casted!!!!
This man is perfection.....PLEASE ASSIGN HIM TO PLAY CHRISTIAN!!!!
I doubt that you've seen vampire diaries if you think he looks 'weak'?!?! I advise u see him as 'damon' first.....!
Ian is definitely the PERFECT one to play Christian Grey! He is SEXY! :)
For Bale to go from playing the ultimate billionaire playboy with a hidden side (Bruce Wayne) to playing a pussy like Christian Grey would be a tremendous step backward.
He ok for the role, maybe
"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!
Nope! ...almost comical
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!!!!
No way! Anyone see American Psycho!!! I'd be waiting for him to pull out the chainsaw, hanger, & ice pick!
He's not good looking enough to make you blush just by talking to him...
Ian. Hands down. DO NOT QUESTION ME!
Defo Ian!! he is perfect!! i know he has copper hair in book but i did have him in my head as i was reading it!!he could have got darker as he got older!? defo him! wish i was anastasia!!! :)
A good option, but he's very charismatic... not exactly a Christian forte.....
YES. He s perfect. Beautiful. Super mysterious. Rigid but warm when he wants to be.. YES!
Yes he does have that mysterious thing going on..but he's tooooooooo Scrawny! Christian is manly, a bit rigid, dominate and tall, definitely not Robs strengths...
The essence she brings to the screen is perfect.. but she doesn't have those "BIG BLUE EYES"
contacts would just make her look really lame...
Ha.. I accidentally doubled on my description of Ana.lol
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?
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.
what about Gabriel Macht believe that's his name. He plays Harvey on SUITS., or Peter Porte recently on Y and R he has that intrigue and cunning vibe and good looks.
How's about James Scott - actor that is playing role of EJ DiMera in Days of Our Lives? A fine looking man :)
OLIVER JACKSON-COHEN as CHRISTIAN GREY!! Try to search him on FACEBOOK, GOOGLE and YOUTUBE. He is so gorgeous, hot, handsome, tall man. He is a great actor.
Lol no please. I won't bother watching. She should stick to "singing" or whatever the hell she does
He seems too weak. Plus no just no
He has already done Shame of which he was a sex addict so he fits perfectly well. But I guess he's a bit old for the role of Christian Grey
OH YES! He is Mr. Grey in my mind. His hair is too dark for what I pictured but everything else about him is perfect. Especially his intense eyes.
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!
You know I have always imagined Grey as Bale.... this would be like a dream come true!! I would prefer that Grey's character be played by a slighly more mature man, like Bale. We've already seen his domineering, sweet ass in the recent bat man films, I would not complain to see more of him in a film like this. Pllleeeaassee!!!
I can't see anyone else playing him apart from alex... eric is christian just a vampire version!! Offfffffffffft yes!
Could have used a better picture of him....
yh the whole list of ppl is completely wrong.. but adding Rihanna? really? gosh more like Emilia Clarke or Felicity Jones?
This is an awful picture of him, watch one episode of true blood and you'll be sold.
I also would like to suggest Matthew Mcconaughey for the role, I think he would be a perfect fit. thoughts?
Jason Lewis (from brothers and sisters) fits the description of Christian Grey better than anyone on the planet. He is perfect for the role. Opinions?
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 :)
Its about a doormat who does whatever the Billionaire wants her to do , and she starts a relationship because he is really hot, hot and rich, no other characteristics except he wants some BDSM while she is a virgin and while no other guy ever put an Eye on her, the really hot and rich man introduces her to his lifestyle. She doesn't really like it but doesn't run after he shows her a contract , because he is hot( Oh, did I say that already) and he falls in love because she bites her lip real hard. Her goal is to change him because he is rich and good looking...you find the word fack about a 10000000 times on one page and if you need to learn a new position there you go , just make sure your guy takes some lessons and lots of Oysters before . hahahahaha
Nooooo! Dont do it :( Christian Bale is no Christian Grey :( :( I would personally like to see either Ian Somerhalder or Robert Buckley sluuuup! yes please
Oliver Jackson-Cohen would be also great as Christian Grey. He is so gorgeous. :)
Christian Grey=Matt Bomer!!!!!
This book is WAY overhyped. It's so sad how we grasp so strongly onto the mediocre any more
CHRISTIAN BALE WOULD BE PERFECT!!!!! HE IS SMOLDERING AND DOMINATE AND ALSO CAN PULL OFF EMOTIONAL AND NEEDY. HE AND EMMY ROSSUM WOULD BE MY DREAM FOR THESE TWO INCREDIBLY EROTIC ROLES. BOTH VERY POWERFUL PERSONALITIES.
Oliver Jackson-Cohen would be great for Christian Grey. I saw his pictures on Facebook and Google. He is so hot and gorgeous. He is 26 yrs. old. He is 6'3 ft. tall. He is physically fit. He is perfect for Christian. :)
considering its just published twilight fanfiction...
It is said Miley Cyrus to take that part!! :)
can someone be a doll and just sort of summarise what the book is about? i have some idea about it, like it's about strippers or something?
please help me out :D much thanks!! xxx
can someone basically summarise what the book is about? i know a little bit about it, but not much.
Everyone wants a big name for Christian Grey (Bale, Downey Jr, Fassbender, etc) but wouldnt it be better if someone that portrayed Christian Grey became a big name because of it. When I read the book as a male I thought of Scott Speedman from Underworld and The Vow to play the role of a manipulative billionaire. He has the looks he can definately act the part and I think this would mutually jetset his career and the character of Christian Grey for the trilogies. Speedman also hasnt share the limelight as his competitors for the role but I feel he is the perfect fit.
As far as Anastasia Steele, I think it be best if someone in the proper age group played the role, however a big name would in the age group might not be mature enough to captivate audiences. For my top two choices the performer that would best represent the role would be Dianna Agron from FOXs Glee. Having played a teen who has overcome teen pregnancy and even a tragic car crash she has the tenacity and beauty to live up to the role.
She has the sex appeal of the Hindenburg disaster and the facial range of a coma patient. If they want to make another set of twilight movies, they will cast her. If they want to separate themselves from twilight, they will choose absolutely NO ONE from the cast of twilight.
The entire time reading the trilogy I could only picture christian bale!! That was before all the movie hype! You all that don't think so need to watch American Pshyco between that character and batman OMG! Christian bale all the way!!!!!!
