‘Fifty Shades’ Movie: Fans Want Ian Somerhalder & Alexis Bledel To Star

Katie Couric asked fans to vote on who should play Christian Grey and Anatasia Steele in the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ movie. Keep reading to find out E.L. James’ reaction!

Best-selling author E.L. James chatted with Katie Couric on Sept. 17 about the steamy novel — and soon to be movie — that’s sweeping the nation. Though no casting decisions have been made, E.L. revealed she has four actors in mind for the role of Christian Grey, and three actresses for the role of Anastasia Steele. We wonder if Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart made the cut!

Katie, meanwhile, conducted her own poll online so fans could chime in, and it turns out most people think Ian Somerhalder and Alexis Bledel should take on the racy roles!

When Katie revealed the poll results during her show, E.L. remained silent, but smiled. Interesting!

Do YOU think Ian and Alexis would be good casting choices?

When Katie Couric showed the pictures of all the actors from the poll side by side, Ian Somerhlader stood out hands down. He is such a beautiful man with such a distinct sexy look, those eyes of his are the eyes of Mr. Grey. None of the others come close. The others just look like everday guys, not CG material.

This Ian person is not even good looking, only Rob Pattinson should play the part. Ryan Gosling is not big enough he looks like a child.

I’m a big Ian Somerhalder fan, but I don’t see him in this role. If he gets I’m happy for him because I adore him. I just don’t think this role is made for him. I see others who fit it better. That’s hard to say because I want him to get work.

They would need to change her hair color but she would TOTALLY be right for Ana and Ian has Christian Grey written all over him.
But watch the producers will give it to Gosling and he’ll mess it up….

MB fans are up in arms because he nudged ahead a staggering 1%…. AFTER the poll results were recorded by Couric’s people. Of course his fans are choosing to ignore this detail, and instead of being gracious in defeat (and treat all this as a bit of fun) they’re ‘screaming’ at the producers, author and media that MB is the true winner. His ‘huge’ fanbase should have voted for him. They have no one to blame but themselves. The sooner MB comes out (excuse the pun) and says he’s not interested (because he’s isn’t) in the role the better the mental health of some of his fans.

The Katie show producers have set them straight though on the shows’ Twitter page. They told them, that at the time of the taping, the poll showed Ian had won. And that they’ve left the poll up just for fun so any results now are just after the fact

Some of Mat’s fans, especially on Twitter, like to complain and create a fuss. It should be fun not taken so seriously.

Agree, Matt Bomer IS SO MUCH BETTER.
Not liking Ian or A.Skarsgaard, both have the slimy annoying looks, definitely not Fifty material.
If we can’t get Rob & Kristen, I’d like to have Matt as Fifty, his eyes really are mesmerising.

I agree completely. Christian has to be a MAN who is built. Somerhalder seems kind of small and scrawny to me and he looks shifty and snarky, not sexy, kind of like a villain.
