CW Hunk Showdown For ’50 Shades’

No '50 Shades' for Emma?
The star debunks a big rumor going around today.
It’s a steamy CW showdown over which heartthrob will land the lead role in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Both Ian Somerhalder and Stephen Amell have coyly admitted to being in talks for the role of the sexually-domineering Christian Grey.

On Thursday, the 31-year-old Arrow star admitted to fans on his Facebook that he’s “had a meeting” with Fifty Shades execs. “I get questions about Christian Grey all the time,” Amell said.

“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.

Who would make for the perfect cast in your opinion? Sound off below.
