Christian Bale has the right amount of charm and power to play the controlling, sex-obsessed role of Christian Grey.
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!!!
The perfect Christian Grey is Eduardo Verastequi
Eduardo Verastequi for Christian Grey
Yuk…. he doesn’t look 27…. nor is he good looking…..
Christain Bale would be perfect….
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.
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 :)
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.
agree…Christian Bale definitely fits the role, he has the dominating look, and so damn sexy and mysterious!!
I hope this is a joke
Agreed 100% that he should play Grey.
EWWWW!!!!! He is NOT even remotely attractive. Sorry, but that is such a turn off. I wouldn’t even watch the movie if he was casted. HECK NO!!!
OK.. who the heck is writing this stuff? Please remember,
Christian is a YOUNG multimillionaire in his late 20’s!!
I think if Mr Bale plays Mr Grey i will hear “the batman” everytime he speaks…….how irritating! I think they need to give someone a little younger a shot at it. sorry girls.
Sorry, I agree him…10 years ago. I think he’s a cutie, but he’s no Grey. Sticking to my guns with Matt Bomer…talk about bedroom eyes!!!
He is my pick, I think he would be perfect for this role!!!
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.
Im sorry but Bale is no Christian Grey, Ian Somerhalder is the perfect man to play Christian Grey. He has the smouldering eyes and mysterious look, plus a mighty fine body to throw into the equation
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!!
What about James Franco?
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!
Noooo, please please can we have actor James Franco as Grey xx
Want actor James Franco as Christian x PERFECT
I think Ryan Reynolds would play the part of Christian Grey!
Bale is sexy, but I think that he doesn’t want the role. Oliver Jackson Cohen would be a good choice. But Ian, for me, would be the worst!!!
From the very first time I read it, Christian Grey is Christian Bale. I dont know why, but he is definitely Bale!! Yes he’s supposed to be 27 in the book, but no other actor comes close.
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.
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.
He’s too old! Christian Grey is 27!
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!
Jason Lewis would be the perfect Christian!
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!
i think matt dallas is perfect to cast as christian grey
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. :)
Christian bale is so not right for the part, too old and not beautiful enough. Matt boomer or henry cavill would be perfect!!
He has such a nice smile.
I think victor Webster would be perfect!
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.
I agree 100%! But why do you say that his wife wouldn’t let him do the role? Just curious.. :)
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!
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!!!
Christian Grey = Matt Bomer
Anastasia = Leighton Meester
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!!
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.
It has to be Robert Pattinson and Kristin Steward, no one else fits the parts as well as they do.
I personally envision Arie Ludenyk from Bacherlorette as Christian… Just saying :) who knows if he can act, but I can dream!
Christian Bale would be perfect for the role, he is handsome and intense.
I like Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Alexis Bledel, Jessica Lowndes, and Lucy Hale for Ana.
For Christian Ryan Phillippe, Matt Bomer, or Colin Egglesfield.
Freddie Stroma for CG and Lucy Hale for AS
Freddie Stroma for CG anf Lucy Hale for Ana
Doesn’t do much for me
