Christian Bale has the right amount of charm and power to play the controlling, sex-obsessed role of Christian Grey.
Seriously? How did he make the list? He’s no Mr Grey!!!
I really like him for gray. I think he can pull of the intensity that many of these cutie boys don’t have. We are talking about a Dom here not a boy band member.
Christin Bale is perfect…uh…10 YEARS AGO!!! He’s way too old for the part! Sorry good choice but wrong decade
The problem is that if he plays Christian he’s going to come off as the creepy older guy who really likes virginal co-eds. This BOTHERS me.
Ian is a 33 year old dating a 23 year old… Just saying… (Love him, but if the shoe fits…)
With Bale’s good looking and charisma, it doesn’t look creepy LOL
Did you not see him in American Psycho? Beyond creepy!
yes yes yes….I mean yes for the role…great choice
oh yes, I knew i knew that face that was being described in the book and it is Christian Bale, watch him in Batman the dark knight, watch the way he walks, he talks to Rebecca, he is Christian Grey.
Oh yes, I agree wholeheartedly!
I agree, Bruce Wayne has got so many similarities to Christain Grey. Bale would be almost perfect if it wasn’t for his age… It’s a shame though…
I agree. Christian Bale is the only one can play this role perfectly. He is so genuine, smart, intense, dark, complex and sexy. I couldn’t think of anyone else for Grey.
Christian Bale would be perfect for grey. I can’t imagine meaty actor or just pretty face playing Christian Grey. Bale is a perfect candidate for the model look and as a dominating figure with twisted past. He was the white and dark knight I pictured while I was reading the book.
I agree 100% BUT.. sadly, he’s too old now…10 years ago. YES Absolutely…Christian Grey needs to be manly and tall; a meaty actor like you said. Henry Cavill would be a good choice… or Mat Bomer…
YES HENRY CAVILL WOULD BE PERFECT!!!!!!
Absolutely Christian Bale to play Christian Grey. As someone else said previously, he has all the right characteristics and physical style right down to his “just F***ed” hair. I think after watching the Batman movies he most certainly has everything that has been so well described in the books, eerie actually. Regarding his actual age, i thought he was much younger, so i think he could definitely pull off that role. Vote one for Christian Bale.
No Way!! Ian Somerhalder…YES!!
ABSOLUTELY YES! Ian all the way!
OH HELL YEAH!!!
I dont think so at all
no way! … where is Matthew Bromer on this list? need to keep with the 35 and under men!
Garrett Hedlund as Christian Grey
Hedlund would definitely qualify!
Johnathon Rhyes Meyers should play Christian Grey.
How about Sam Worthington?
Sam Worthington would be a good contender
NO WAY. Christian Bale is fugly with a capital F. Besides, he’s way too old, Christian Grey is supposed to be 27!!
I would have definitly said Christian Bale, had he been younger. He would have been the perfect Christian.
NO!! All I can picture is American Psycho
How about Chris Hemsworth? Tall, has Fifty’s build, VERY good looking and young. He’s who i pictured when reading it.
Absolutely YES!!!!!! Exactly what I was thinking.
Hemsworth is also a great contender! Age, looks, and he would seem like a fresh face as I’ve never seen him as the main character in a romance!
Now that is someone to mouth water over. Not Christian Bale. EWWW!!!
He is such an arrogant, unattractive a**. Jus sayin!!!
I know the character is 27, but he would have made a perfect Mr. Grey!
Omg NO!! Not only is he ugly but he is WAY too old!!
Ugly? Really? I beg to differ.
no way ! Garrett Hedlund
Matt Bomer !!!
OMG!!! Yes ! He is perfect:) The whole time I read the book I had him in mind!!! He is so mysterious and dark and super sexy!! He is Christian Grey!
Oooohh my God, me too!! ^0^
HENRY CAVILL…. PEOPLE!!
no!!! henry cavill is a better fir for elliot
I totally agree with you. He has the CHARM, CHARISMA, SEXINESS, and just overall RAW SEX APPEAL. HENRY CAVILL is perfect for Christian Grey. Please refer to his DUNHILL commercial with the chopper. Hello CHARLIE TANGO!
I totally Agree with beachluver3. Christian Bale is who I pictured as Grey when I was reading the book, and can’t imagine anyone else playing this role. He is perfect, if not slightly a little bit old but oh well… He is such a talented actor and he’s HOT. Hope he gets the role!
The best part about Christian Bale is that he doesn’t look his age! I absolutely agree that Christian Bale should be Mr. Grey!
I’ll kill the casting crew if they make him Christian Grey!!
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!!!!!!
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. :)
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.
Christian Grey=Matt Bomer!!!!!
Oliver Jackson-Cohen would be also great as Christian Grey. He is so gorgeous. :)
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
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 :)
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?
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!!!
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!
Henry Cavill is perfect for the part. did anyone see his Dunhill commercial. it’s in youtube check it out.
Charlie Hunnam. He is PERFECT for CG.
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.
How’s about James Scott – actor that is playing role of EJ DiMera in Days of Our Lives? A fine looking man :)
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.
needs to be a mini series on HBO!!!
No way! Anyone see American Psycho!!! I’d be waiting for him to pull out the chainsaw, hanger, & ice pick!
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.
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!!
OLIVER JACKSON-COHEN for Christian!
Babes. The only man for the part is Jessie Pavelka
if not henry cavill. jonathan rhys myers,peter porte,what about jeff branson (ronan) on y and r. then there is warren kole of “common law” just some thoughts..
Ryan Phillippe!!! Think back to Cruel Intentions people! He’s got that dark, smoldering, sexy look!!!! The perfect Christian Grey!
Matt Bomer is the perfect Christian!!!
No way o Christian bale or creepy Ian!
He was my first pick.
