totally desagree! i see alex as ‘Elliot’ maybe, but defenitely NOT as ‘Cristhian’, i think he looks too young for the role… i dont know, dont feel the ‘Cristian Power’ in there.. :/

bad choice, it does not have the profile of Grey. Unfortunately the film has lost many viewers with this choice.

OH PLEASE NO. I enjoy watching Alex Pettyfer in movies but come on! Fifty Shades of Grey? How about no thank you. Christian is supposed to be 27. Alex is not fit to play him. I think a majority of people can agree. I would MUCH prefer someone such as Matt Bomer or even Ian Somerhalder as would everyone else. Matt Bomer would be absolute perfection for this role and I’m just saying if they really chose Alex Pettyfer for the role, then they are making a horrible mistake. They will/already have upset pretty much everyone who has read the books and envisioned a sexy, older mid to late-twenties, smoldering man with dark hair and beautiful blue eyes. Just putting my two cents out there.

This is a story about a younger girl and an older man. Well, 6 years older, but still significant. It’s not about a man younger than a girl, or the same age as. Yes he’d be acting but still we all know he’s 23! He has a horrible rep in hollywood too. He’s a douchey kid! There’s no way he’s been cast..

PROTESTO!! el no me hace sentir nada en relación al libro (espero sea general) simplemente no es para el papel, puede ser ethan kavanagh, pero el papel para ese hombre perfecto llamado Christian Grey es otro hombre perfecto MATT BOMER, dense una vueltita a las paginas de la web y vean y ya no busquen mas.

@protoalessandro Alessandro Proto…. he is real, not an actor, he is young, handsome, rich, powerful, reserved, sullen, mysterious, but above all…..

Don’t believe anything Hollywood Life says, they’re a tabloid. The people involved in the film will tell us when they have chosen a director, which has not happened yet because the script is still being worked on. They can’t cast actors without a script/director.

@hudz – How is someone’s opinion “invalid”? It’s their opinion. I’m guessing you aren’t even old enough (18+) to be reading these books, and if you are, that’s really sad.

@hudz fifty shades was a twilight fanfic before it was a book so your Robert and Kristen opinion is even more invalid and acting only goes so far let’s not kid ourselves

Hollywood Life is not a source for legitimate information! Team Fifty will tell us when they have news like this. Alex has certainly not been cast, and Jennifer Lawrence will not be either. It would be stupid to believe anything that does not come straight from the producers, EL James or Universal. They have to have a finished script before they can even hire a director, then comes the cast. Clearly they’re not to that point yet, or else they would’ve told us. Can we move on from this now?

This isn’t true no one has been chosen check imdb just the producers and writers that’s it as for the whole christian grey debate Ian has a pretty face but his acting is not that great Alexander is old Matt is gay nothing against gay people but I don’t wanna watch a guy pretend to be straight for three movies rob and Kristen would make better sense Kristen is 23 rob is almost 27 the source material is based off of Edward and Bella they are actually a couple and Bella/Kristen/Ana are very simalar Kristen is clumsy just like Ana and bella she’s the same age as Ana and she’s got brown hair and green eyes rob is hot is use to dealing with playing the perfect man and can actually act remember me,bel ami all great movies

MATT BOMER FTW. Just shut up your opinion about him being gay is invalid. Pretend to be straight? It’s call ACTING FOR A REASON. And no, not another rob and kristen. NOT ANOTHER TWILIGHT.

This is all BS guys! He is NOT confirmed as CG and it makes me sick this site would say so seeing as NO director has been chosen! Alex does not have any CG traits… not saying he is not a good looking guy! Just is not CG material!

I do agree with you. They have Ian Somerhalder, Matt , Stephen Amell. Either one of those three could be perfect CG. What are this people thinkking. Do they want to throw the move to the sharks before it even starats?

Dana Brunetti, one of the producers, said on Twitter the other day in response to someone that the script is (still) being written. That means no director has been chosen at this time, which means that no one has been cast! You have to have a finished script, then a director, then the actors. That’s how it works in Hollywood and that’s what Team Fifty has been telling us all this time. This has to just be a rumor fed off the news that Gus Van Sant submitted an audition tape for him to be chosen as the director, and Van Sant choosing to use Alex in that scene for his “audition”.

Why the hell would they film in London, and none of this was sourced? Anyone could say “a close source to — said this” and suddenly it’s credible? Come on, this is ridiculous. Alex is too young to play Christian, Jennifer Lawrence is the complete opposite of Ana & filming in London rather than US? None of it even makes sense!!!! I’d be questioning the minds & talents of Team Fifty if there is any truth to this at all, but I won’t believe anything until they say it themselves. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone strung all this together to create a widespread rumor.

I’m 100% done with this movie and all of this if this is true. Alex is so young, it doesn’t make sense, he’s practically Ana’s age. This whole thing is just going down the drain for me and I was so excited for what this movie could bring. What a complete and utter let down.

@JJ
Then you must seriously have a sucky imagination..
Alex doesn’t ooz sexy, he doesn’t and Matt and Ian do.
If I had to see Alex walk in a coffee shop I wouldn’t stop to stare cause his just not that sexy, he doesn’t have the Grey factor..
Bomer and Ian on the other had are a whole different story, and read the book please, Christian is 27 in the book, not 25.
Where does it say that ?
And why would Ana say his old if his only 4 years older than her ? Use ur brain please .

Hs the worst choice ever..
#MattBomerForChristainGrey was even trending today on twitter WORLDWIDE.
