Could the ladies be getting a serious treat in the next ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ film? Well, Henry Cavill is finally responding to those casting rumors that he may just star in ‘Fifty Shades Darker.’ Watch his interview here — and girls, he doesn’t say no.
Before you freak out, Henry Cavill would not be taking the place of Christian Grey, which is being portrayed by Jamie Dornan. Instead, he is rumored to be playing Jack Hyde, the boss that Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) works under at the publishing house in the sequel — who, in the book, has piercing blue eyes. So we know Henry fits that part of the description basically perfectly.
“Basically what I can say is that I can’t say anything about it now,” Henry told E! while in London promoting his new movie, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. So, that’s not a denial right? Well, his costar Armie Hammer sat next to him and he seemed more than eager for his costar to join the franchise.
“This is the first I’ve heard about it, literally,” he told the reporter. “Please tell me you’re doing Fifty Shades of Grey.” Well, you’re not the only one, Armie! Basically the world has been hoping that Super Man could make the transformation, but we have to say — he is a little busy. Currently promoting the Guy Ritchie film, and then he’ll be on to the Batman Vs. Superman press. But let’s just say now, we’re more than okay with Henry taking on the role (or any role) in Fifty Shades of Grey. Let me just run tot he book to see if Jack ever gets shirtless and if not, if there’s a way we can make that happen.
Do you think Henry would make a good Jack, HollywoodLifers? Watch the interview below, then let us know.
