yes, please — he would be perfect –the character requires someone who can seem both damaged and very sexual –Ian was the person I pictured when I read the books — but never dreamed he might be chosen as Mr. Grey. On the female side — how do you cast such a silly girl — that seems impossible.

No, no, no! To both Ian Somerhalder and Emma Stone. Such a small vision.

The perfect Christian Grey is Henry Cavill.

The only Anastasia Steele is Ashley Greene.

Loved Somerhalder in “Lost” and “Vampire..” But that’s small screen. And Emma Stone is so juvenile, not the beautiful young adventerous woman represented through Anastasis. If you are going to do this movie, at least do it right. Don’t turn it into “Harry Potter Likes to be Spanked”.

Ashley Greene might be the perfect female lead — she could bring more life to the role and match Ian well on-screen — great idea!!!

I think he should play Jack Hyde or something like that..
Not Christian Grey..
I remember reading the entire book and the person that came to mind was Matt Bomer..
He will make the perfect CG..
Hate the fact that just because his Gay, people think he shouldn’t get the role..
His perfect, looks like a friggen goddess..
His so damn hot its not even funny..

Ian is the only actor I want to see play Christian Grey. Everyone I know that has read the trilogy agrees he is the best actor to portray Christian on film. No one else will do. He is just so perfect for this role in so many ways. And I love that he knows the story, has read the books and really gets it. Ian or bust!

@Patty Mccormick. E.L. James doesn’t want Rob for the CTG part. That’s why I think he should at least play Jack Hyde and Kristen should play the ex-sub stalker chick.
I loved the story since I found it on Fanfiction, It was called master of the universe back then with the Twilight characters. I loved the story back the, and it was only half finished before it was taken down. I sent a message to the author and found out she had it published through the writers coffee shop, but it cost 20 bucks for a paper copy and there are 3 books. I asked for a nook tablet for Christmas and got each book for 8 dollars each.
I can’t wait for the movies though, I just hope whoever plays CTG will do a good job.

Agreed, actually. I can absolutely see Ian as Hyde (despite Hyde having been described with a ponytail) but I can’t see him as Christian at all.

I don’t mind him being CG if they don’t want Rob for the part.I think he would do well in the part
I still think Rob and Kristen should be in it though.
Kristen should be the ex-sub stalker chick and Rob should play Jack Hyde, the bad guy boss of Ana. I think those 2 would be great for those parts.
Can you imagine Rob Putting Kristen in a submisive position, stripping her naked and giving her a bath!. If you haven’t read these books ,do it now!

Ian Somerhalder would be perfect as Christian Grey. Love that he said he was not single, especially since everyone knows Ian and Nina have been a solid couple for three years.

direi che matt bomer è l unico christian grey e questo continuo ostentare di ian è patetico……perlomeno gli altri attori sono più riservati giustamente anche perchè nessuno è stato ancora scelto.

To be fair…Ian has played a bi-sexual character in Rules of Attraction and even kissed James Vanderbeek on screen – whom he said tasted like a “warm heineken” in this interview. So I think that sexual preferences aside, a truly talented actor can embody any role.

(stepping off high horse lol)
That being said, Ian is the perfect choice for CTG because he can switch emotions very easily (he does so on his show every week) so pulling off Christian’s mercurial mood swings would be a breeze for him. Also, he has the unruly hair, the strong jaw, the happy trail, the brooding intense eyes, and that drop dead gorgeous smile that Ana talks about in the books. This is the easiest and most obvious casting choice the filmakers can make. imo
(end of my rant)
