Nina Dobrev: Ian Somerhalder Would Be 'Great' In 'Fifty Shades' Movie

Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev '50 Shades Of Grey'

Nina supports Ian’s desire to play Christian Grey, but says she’d never star alongside him. Find out why!

Allow me to take a minute to applaud Nina Dobrev. While every young actor and their mother seems to be clamoring for a role in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, Nina isn’t so quick to imagine herself in Anastasia Steele’s shoes. “I don’t know if that’s a good idea,” Nina recently told MTV News when asked if she’d want to play the Anastasia to Ian Somerhalder‘s Christian. (Ian hasn’t been cast, but is very interested.) “I think it’s best for any of the actors on The Vampire Diaries to kind of do their own things … and create new characters.

“As much as you try when you shoot a movie, if it’s two of the same people … [the fans will] see me as Elena and they’ll see him as Damon if we do a film together,” she said. “I think it would be better [if] either he should get it or I should get it.”

That said, Elena does recognize — as all people rightfully should — that Ian would make the perfect Christian.

“I know that apparently he’s really great for the role, so I hope that he gets it,” she added.

Watch Nina’s interview below, then vote: Should Ian play Christian Grey?

Ian is Christian Grey I’ve read the books and he will do the character justice. I hope they get him to play Christian and mila Kunis or Lucy Hale would be great as Ana Steele. Just please, no Rpatz or kstew!!! Ugh! That will definitely ruin the movie!!

Nina right..she’s not capable to role as Anastasia. Especially her skin..too dark, erotic and she has no messy hair. But Ian Somerhalder has everything to play as Christian Grey.

Hello

I think both, Ian and Nina should be in 50 shades of grey [Together]… because it will make people excited and wanting to watch 50 shades of grey, with the new vampire couple….

…. but please vote for Ian Somerhalder to be Christian Grey in the Movie. I just really love it when couples are doing a new Movie together, because it makes them more famous and they start sharing fans, but it is and will be seriously awesome to have a couple do another Movie with each other, especially straight after doing a Movie together!!!

Of all people, I think that Ian should be Christian Grey… he will apparently make the Movie more attractive and interesting, because he himself is hot, sexy and cute… and you would not need a cupid to make you fall in love with him, because he has his style and charm that attracts every girl to him… and when ever he is with a girl, I just love the way he flirts with people… Like what he did to me in a red carpet for the teen choice awards… and I just love him soooooooooooo badly!!
