‘Step Up Revolution’ Stars Ryan Guzman, Kathryn McCormick Talk ’50 Shades of Grey,’ Dream Dates and Big-Screen Violence (VIDEOS)
As speculation continues to swirl about casting 50 Shades of Grey, another leading man is throwing his hat in the ring. The 50 Shades casting was just one of the many hot topics covered when the sexy young stars of Summit Entertainment’s Step Up Revolution Ryan Guzman and Kathryn McCormick stopped by Celebuzz’s Hollywood studio for a chat with special guest host Jake Whetter.
“Yeah, for sure. Let’s do it,” Guzman told Celebuzz of playing Christian Grey in the big-screen adaption of the sex-and-bondage-filled blockbuster trilogy.
Would his costar McCormick hop on board as Grey’s love interest, Anastasia Steele?
“I think I would have to let him have his own journey with that,” she said.
While she may not be into a 50 Shades love story, McCormick had a dream date in mind.
“Something outside [and] something active,” she said of her perfect date. “But also relaxing. Maybe doing something active during the day, and then going for a boat ride at night and relaxing over conversation.”
As for Guzman, he’d like a chance to show off his chef skills to a lady. “I like to cook too [so] I wouldn’t mind cooking a dinner and then bring it out to some scenic area,” he explained. “We would just have a lot of fun. Even though I like shy girls, I like to bring the shyness out of them.”
And that’s not all the Step Up stars revealed about themselves. In a question-and-answer game, Celebuzz put the costars to the test to find out just how well they know each other. When it came to on-set snacks, Guzman always grabbed a Snicker’s bar, while McCormick chose health-conscious bites, like grapes and coconut water.
Tackling a more serious topic, Guzman expressed his condolences for all those affected by the Aurora, Colorado, mass shooting. “Our prayers go out to the victims,” he said. “It’s rough because we don’t know how much media plays into [events like that].”
“It’s just really saddening to see someone get so wrapped up in something that’s not reality,” McCormick chimed in.
But the stars agree their upbeat Step Up sequel was a much-needed break from silver screen violence. “It think it was something that was really necessary to happen when people were really afraid to go to the theaters,” said McCormick.
“I think our movie is pretty fun,” Guzman explains. “It’s a way to step out and have fun. It’s a fun-loving movie.”
