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?
