Alexander Skarsgard Wants To Play Christian Grey In 'Fifty Shades'

Tue, May 1, 2012 1:34pm EDT by 79 Comments

The ‘True Blood’ star thinks he’s the perfect guy to play the highly coveted role of the gorgeous billionaire who falls in love with the innocent virgin Anastasia Steele — do you think he’s should play Christian?

Alexander Skarsgard has his eyes on the prize! The actor says E.L. James‘ leading man Christian Grey was someone he was meant to play. You’ll never believe why!

“He’s got a sex chamber? My character has that on True Blood,” he tells Access Hollywood. “He’s got his little dungeon.”

But Alexander isn’t the only celeb who wants to play Christian, Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder is reportedly up for the part. Plus, we told you that Kristen Stewart said that Robert Pattinson was reading the book!

Alexander Skarsgard would make the BEST Christian Grey, hands down! He’s got that sleek, dark, mysterious, debonair, not to mention sexy persona that makes for a PERFECT character fit! I will be thoroughly disappointed if he doesn’t make the cut!

Alexander Skarsgard – Christian,
Allison Williams – Ana
Joe Manganiello – Elliot Grey
Channing Tatum- Taylor
NO KSTEW or RPATZ for god’s sake. That girl cannot act.. Being who you are in real life is not acting. And from the books i really didnt think Ana was constipated all the time so KStew wont work for the role :)

I dont egt why people seem to think Kristen Stewart should play the part of Ana, ok she played bella swan, but i dont think she is made ofr the role of Ana, there are far better females out there to play the part. Plus Stewart acts like shes in the theatre rather than in a movie, if you watch her, gestures etc, She just wouldnt be right. Either of those males suggested would fit perfectly for the part. I also like Gale Harold, he would make a good Christian Grey to, he should not be over looked.

No! This man does not have the empowering, shattering face of Christian Gray!
I have no idea on who would, I haven’t thought much about it, but the face of Alexander us not mesmerising or mysterious.
I am nOt even sure a film could go ahead, surely it would have to be x rated.
I think thisis one of those books that is best to be left a book. Leaving some originality and imagination. I think a movie could ruin the fifty shades trilogy.
Christian Gray could have the face of anybody. Its your world to play with, a movie would take that away.

He is a very good actor… but if you think he is old maybe Alex Pettyfer would be more to your liking?

Alexander Skarsgard is the guy I was invisioning as I was reading the 3 books. But if he doesn’t get the role, it should go to Henry Cavill or Colin Egglesfield!!!

As already pointed there was no mention of a receding hairline in the books sorry alex good as a vamp not so much as christian he’s suposed to be 27!! I honestly think i would throw up a bit in my mouth if he was teamed with some of the young actresses that have been suggested for the role.
In my mind christian grey is alex pettyfer or gaspard ulliel, especially in the bleu de chanel ad, check it out.

No no no! Sorry Alexander, but I think many women will be dispppointed if you played Christian Grey. I envision Christian to be so good looking, you’d have to peel my eyes away from him. You don’t do that for me. I’ll look right past you.

I agree!!! Skarsgard is NOT Christian!! it has to totally be an unknown actor and this casting must be perfect or it will ruin the whole movie!!
