Robert Pattinson, Ian Somerhalder & More: Who Should Be Christian Grey?
If the filmmakers of Fifty Shades want to make the fans happy, then casting R-Patz, Ian, or Matt appears to be the most sensible choice. Those three have definitely been the favorites on Twitter:
Now that Charlie Hunnam is out of FSOG, its time for Rob to be Christian Grey. And Kristen should replace the other actress too. :’)

Henry Cavill should replace Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey. He’d make for a drop dead sexy sadist. *insert evil grin here*

But let’s not even talk about this:
I don’t know why we’re discussing it. Danny DeVito is the obvious choice to replace Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey.
