I would like to see Rob play Christian Grey, he can sing he can play the piano, he has the right coloured hair, he is the correct height, he is good looking. But he would have to wear grey contacts and he would have to really work out to get the body of Christian Grey. He would have to do kick boxing, running and a lot of other exercises like Christian Grey does in the books. I haven’t seen pictures of him lately working out with his personal trainer, has he given up training. Also I read that Kristen told Rob not to do it when the suggestion was first made that Christian Grey was going to be played by Rob, because it would ruin his career. I don’t understand the books are not porn. Dakota is all wrong for the role of Ana. She is not petite, she really isn’t that beautiful like the book describes Ana. She would have to dye her hair to brown, and wear really blue contact lenses to match Ana’s eyes. The books were written on Edward and Bella so why not use Rob and Kristen, after all they did play Edward and Bella.

Shed also have to shrink abut 5inches We dont know what Kristen said to Rob or even if hed want it? Dont forget its a Triology there again he may decide itd be good after his 5 failed films
IT is different not Romantic TWI filmsthink hes finding it hard to find roles that FIT him so why not?
Could they afford him though $12 million he charges! Though he didnt get that in MTTS or Rover
He may do as Kristen did from NEW MOON she took a cut of % worked for smaller pay?
After wearing contacts hed be used to it, ANNA has to be recast no way can DJ play it
Knowone wanted them but studio etc said it was chemistry. Now Charlies not in it ? NO chemistry?

We can only hope. As much as l may dislike some of Rob’s actions, the chemistry between Kristen & Rob is undeniable. Very real and deep,and true.
Either they are REALLY great actors, or their chemistry is very real.
And great chemistry like that cannot be easily faked. Not for that long, anyway.

I agree with you, something is up, and something is going to happen, Stay Well Friend. (If Robert AND Kristen don’t take 50 Shades, I would love to see Matt Bomer in the role, just look at his facial features and the color of his eyes, it is blue with a hint of violet, crazy beautiful)

HWL not fair

Posted at 7:11 PM on October 14, 2013  

HWL SUCKS!!!! So HWL is deleting comments again. Makes you hate to come to the sight if they will not even allow your comment to be posted. My original comment was not offensive nor bad they just didn’t like it that I do not agree with Rob having the part so they deleted my comment. I have also noted that they deleted some of the other comments that were against him having the part. HWL why don’t you just say Bonnie Fuller’s head is up Rob’s @zz and anything against him she will not allow to be posted. She must be getting a lot of money to be this bias on any story. How PATHETIC HWL is to not allow everyone to give their opinion. We alrealdy know HWL loves Robert Pattinson and hates Kristen Stewart. HWL SUCKS!!!

For those who think pattinson has the acting skills to pull this off, you haven’t read the books. As a deadbeat vampire he wasn’t bad – not really good compared to who’s out there- but not bad. Cosmopolis was a stupid movie so he did alright. I think a relatively unknown to the movies like Scott Eastwood would be awesome. He’s drop dead gorgeous. He carries himself so well. If you haven’t checked him out go look. He would be perfect.

Although the part was written with Rob in mind, I don’t think he would want the part. I think they are going to have to find an unknows or someone who is not doing very well right now. Rob could ace the part for he is that good an actor, but that is why Charlie dropped out, he was afraid it would jeopardize him as an actor. It is going to be very interesting to see who they finally get for the role.

Why would he have to act? he just plays himself. I mean it was written for him right? Personally, I think the part is a career killer. Its soft porn and will find it hard to maintain a NC17. Since Rpatz career is already on the down slide, this part could give it a faster push downward. I hope he gets the part. lol

@@Janna.. Sorry you are a Rob hater for he has never done anything to you for you to be that way. Hell, he doesn’t know you exist or any of us for that matter but the subject at hand;.he has already turned down the part fyi. His career is hot and getting hotter. With the Rover coming out, MTTS and MB, QOTD which two already made and confirmation on the other two, he is going to be a Hollywood giant. He is one hot commodity. Rob, we got your back because your ex sure didn’t.

So true. How pitiful is someone’s life that they wish bad things for someone they don’t know. You have to feel sorry for them and pray for them to lose the hate. It will eat you up. On the other hand, Rob is a wonderful man that got hooked up with someone who didn’t deserve him. Wishing success and happiness for both.

No one will live up to Christian Grey. The top actors all have something wrong. Ian is too short. Matt is gay. Rob can not act. I still think they should go with an unknown actor. Give someone else a break. If the movie flops, which it will, no harm no foul. Being NC17 will keep alot of people from seeing the movie. The should just call it a porno and be done with it. The movie will make more on DVD. Just think of the kind of people who will be at the movie. Yuk. They will have to clean the seats.

What does Kristen have to do with Rpatz being a putz? he did that all by himself. Hollywood giant??? really? Well then the other actors aught to just give up cause there won’t be any good parts for them. MTTS is a very small role and it will not make him the king of hollywood. You need to quit sucking on the helium and come back to earth.

True, Rob talked like he never read twilight, he complained up
Edward always opening the car door for Bella, as if Edward were
not a very fast vamp. Edward, name comes from, Jane Eyre, Jane Austin,
and etc. .
Christen Grey is not a rake, he has strange sex choices, infact
Anna is his first real girl friend. So Christen was based on Edward not
Rob.
If it were based on Rob real life, Christen would be a rake.

I know alot of people want Matt Bower to play it. Even though he is very handsome, I just don’t feel like he could pull off the intensity of this role. It is a tough role to cast properly. He has to have controlled intensity and a sex appeal that would turn all the ladies heads. Just like the book says. Other wise they will never be the “Christian Grey”.
