Alex Pettyfer: Should He Play Christian Grey In 'Fifty Shades of Grey'?

50 Shades of Grey

Alex is oozing with sex appeal and we think he’d be great as the male lead in the movie adaptation of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’ Keep reading to find out if he agrees!

After channeling a stripper in Magic Mike, actor Alex Pettyfer is no stranger to taking on risque roles! Should his next one be Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey?
“I haven’t read the book,” he admitted exclusively to HollywoodLife.com. Well, Alex, we definitely think you should!

When asked if he was embarrassed during some of Magic Mike‘s more steamy scenes, he said, “Of course, you’re half, well, completely naked, so you’re always a bit inferior.”

Do YOU think Alex would make a good Christian Grey, HollywoodLifers?

I’m thinking Alex Pettyfer would be good but the whole time I was reading the book I kept picturing Hayden Christensen.

So, Im thinking Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart for Christian and Ana (the ones that did the Twilight Series) They have amazing chemistry and Miley Cyrus for Mia. Taylor Lautner as Jose. Billy Ray Cyrus as Ray. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel as Kate and Elliott. Heather Locklear as Mrs. Robinson. George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer as Carrick and Grace

Alex Pettyfer looks EXACTLY how I picture Christian, When I looked at his picture on Imdb, My first though was… omg this guy is real I thought I made him up??
Matt Bomber would also suit the role for me, he oozes sex
I had originally imagined Alexander Skarsgard for the part, His kinky sex scenes from True Blood are a lot like some of the sex scenes from the books. But I think he looks too old…

The character in the book is black not white so i do not understand why everyone is scoping or wanting to cast a white cast!

Oliver Jackson-Cohen would be great as Christian Gray. He is so gorgeous and hot. He is 26 yrs old. He is 6’3 ft tall. Good actor. I saw his pictures on Google and Facebook. I also saw his interviews on Youtube and the Yoga. :) So amazing!!!! <3

Alex Pettyfer and Ian Somerhalder are both good looking, but simply not hot enough to play Christian Grey. Christian is supposed to be so good looking that it’s almost hard to look at him. Plus, I think Christian needs to be a lesser known, American actor who’s never played a vampire on TV or in the movies. How about Eric Winter (The Ugly Truth) as Christian and Emmy Rossum as Ana?

Cillan Murphy (Inception) should be cast as Christian Grey. Cilia is from Ireland and his father’s name is Carrick.

Fifty shades of grey started off as a twilight fanfic so the author probably imagined robert pattinson as christian but im sure alex pettyfer would make a pretty good job too

Alezx would be perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He doesn’t look over his thirties, which he shouldn’t. A lot of the people are suggesting guys that look too old for the part. And Alex’s wavy hair???? omg have you IMDbed him and lookd at photo 54 out of 74? Black suit? Wavy hair???? Perfect

NO!! Ian Somerhalder. I see no one else as Christian! NO ONE!! He has the looks,the eyes. He IS the perfect good looking creepy bastard. These other people being talked about don’t look creepy…at all. Christian is gorgeous to women of all ages and races but make no mistake about it he also has the creepy/dangerous factor. I haven’t seen anyone yet but Ian who has it all.

Ew god no! He’s terrible for Christian Grey.. I think Matt Bomer is the best choice. Just take a look at White Collar.. He is definitely what i picture Christian Grey to be

I think that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes would be the perfect couple for the part, but Tom is too old. I also say that Stewart Townsend should be looked at. I think he can still play a younger role.
