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!

So cause his Gay he shouldn’t get a role that’s his perfect for ?
This is like saying noo, she’s lesbian, she can’t play a married women to a handsome guy..
His sexuality should have nothing to do with the fact that he can act and that’s it..
Yes his gay buut his also a great choice for the movie..
Would they be so ignorant now to make their fans upset by picking someone they don’t like ?
#MattBomerForChristianGrey was trending today on twitter. WORLDWIDE !!!!
Everyone knows that Ian and Matt are the peoples choice and I would kill to see one of them take the place

@Director. Have you read the books or are you just going on what you heard?
If you haven’t read the books , maybe you shouldn’t comment on this story until you do.
And you know porno stars can’t act, they just have sex!, no acting involved.

If I read the reports correctly, Gus Van Sant, is the one angling for 50 Shades of Grey, by filming one of the sex scenes from the book to show his “vision” of how the movie should go, in the hopes of been hired as the director. Alex was either hired or just filmed the scene as a favor to Gus. Frankly I love Alex Pettyfer, but I feel he’s just too young to play Christian Grey,who though only a few years older, is written as an old soul in a young man’s body. I think Alex is a young soul in a young man’s body. He does have the good looks, though.

PLS DOOO SCARLETT JOHANSSON, i love her and she is my #1 fan…like if they do not do her i would be soo sad to see depressing Kristen Stwarts face, like i am sick of seeing her face, and i think Scarlett would do great in movies like that becuz she can be very humble and laid back looking and this would not be her first time in brown hair…she’s perfect..and she has the experience..

I think Alex would do a good job at the role. Personally Colin O Donoghue would be the Ideal christian grey. If Kristen Stewart were Anastasia, the movie would already suck big time because the bitch can’t act. Emelia Clarke for Anastasia. All the Way look them up and you’ll see what I mean.

Nice choice – he’s hot – can do the bad guy thing and has not been overly typecast in his roles.

I like him but he’s not old enough to play the part.
Christian is like 26 or 27 years old.
