CW Hunk Showdown For '50 Shades'
"Arrow's" Stephen Amell and "The Vampire Diaries" star Ian Somerhalder are both up for the coveted role in "Fifty Shades of Grey."
"I know this, because I had a meeting about it. Long way off. I mean, not that long, but not that close. I wouldn't call it long, but I wouldn't call it close."
But, it looks like Amell hasn't been cast just yet.
On March 14, The Vampire Diaries stud Somerhalder kept his cards close to the vest on an appearance of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.
The 34-year-old actor refused to confirm or deny reports that he's auditioned for the role but told Bravo's Andy Cohen:
"I can't say anything other than it is a very interesting story and whoever gets that role is going to have a very fun rehearsal time."
While the lead role is still up in the air, the book's heroine Anastasia Steele is still up for grabs as well.
Harry Potter's Emma Watson sarcastically lashed out after reports alleged she was signed to play Miss Steele.
