While we’re heartbroken that Charlie Hunnam has officially dropped out of 50 Shades of Grey, we know that there are quite a few contenders who we’d love to see as Christian Grey — and we want you to vote for your favorite choice!
Christian Grey: Who Should Take On The Roll?
On Twitter, Matt’s fans appear to be leading the race! The Suits star has always been in talks for the role — after Charlie was cast, 40,000 fans signed a petition to try and get Matt into it instead!
When Matt heard about it, he reacted saying he was so thankful for the support.
“I’m so grateful for the fans and touched,” he told ETonline. “I’m looking forward to seeing the movie with Charlie and Dakota.”
Well now that that’s not happening — so maybe he will be able to make the fans happy. But he’s not the only choice.
Robert Pattinson & Ian Somerhalder — Why Either One Would Work As Christian Grey
Twitter fans also have been raving about Ian and Rob — two famous Vampires who would be super sexy in the Red Room of Pain.
Author E.L. James, who wrote the sensational book, wanted Rob for the role — who wouldn’t?
“Talked to E.L. James at a party over the summer: her first choice for Christian was Rob Pattinson and Matt Bomer was never in the running,” Bret Easton Ellis said on Twitter in September. “E.L. James and I were at Rob Pattinson’s house when she admitted that Rob was first choice for Christian. Ian Somerhalder never in running.”
However, while Ian isn’t in the running in her eyes, that doesn’t mean he’s not a serious option, at least for the fans. He’s got the sexy grey-blue eyes, the dark hair, and a great deal of shirtless, sexy experience on-screen!
