Move over, Ryan Gosling! The sexy British actor, 23, filmed a test scene for the film adaptation of E.L. James’ erotic novel! Do YOU think he should play the lead male character?

Alex Pettyfer may land the coveted role of Christian Grey in the screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey! We’re sure many of Hollywood’s leading men are totally jealous right now.

Alex Pettyfer: Will He Play Christian Grey?

Director Gus Van Sant, who is best known for films like Good Will Hunting, and Milk, is did a test scene for the movie. Gus picked the 23-year-old actor to play Christian Grey in the test film. He reportedly filmed an erotic sex scene!

The best-selling book, written by E.L. James, has been the topic of conversation since it first came out in 2011. What makes Alex so hot? He recently starred in Magic Mike, alongside Matthew Mcconaughey, and played a male stripper!

But, just because Gus used Alex in the test film, it doesn’t mean he is a lock for the role. The book has sold more than 70 million copies, which means it’s bound to top at the box office. Whoever they pick better be the right choice to play Christian.

Who Will Play Anastasia Steele?

We keep saying that we hope Kristen Stewart will play Anastasia Stelle but there are other names floating around. Perhaps Emma Watson, famous for her role in Harry Potter, will play the part. They reportedly want a beautiful yet innocent girl to play Anastasia. Lily Collins, is also reportedly in the running.

We are SO excited for this film and we can’t wait until it’s fully cast!
