WHICH ACTOR SHOULD PLAY CHRISTIAN GREY?


WHICH ACTOR SHOULD PLAY CHRISTIAN GREY?
A lot of you have strong opinions as to who should play Christian Grey. This poll is here for you to voice your opinions. Although none of us is casting the character, most of us have strong feelings choosing the actor who should become and be associated with Christian Grey. In any book that we love, we end up identifying with characters, and we sort of own them, and anyone who is less worthy to represent that character obviously is a deterrent for us to go and see that particular movie. So, the casting director(s) should pay attention to the public voice. 

Here are your nominees:

You can choose more than one actor if you are indecisive.
If you want to persuade, or help your peers to decide, speak out and write why you think a particular actor should be chosen. You’re the ones who will eventually go and see the movie after all, so why shouldn’t you have a voice in bringing one of the most successful books in modern history into life?

I added Scott Elrod late in the game. The images and info provided courtesy of Ile. But we can't change the voting once it has started (can't add or substract a name). However this way, you can see that there is another possible face in the game.
Now cast your vote who you wish to see as Christian. Thank you!

Ian all the way!!!!! I think Alex Pettyfer would make a good Elliot, maybe.

You forgot Alexander Skaarsgard!!

Deborah said...

Alex would be great as Ethan! I'm stuck on Ian, Matt, and Henry. Henry has the height though, and the looks, gosh I don't know! However that photo of Ian..oh my!whoa! Goodness!

Matt Bomer all the way! A talented young actor that always looks good in a suit. Handsome, devilish smile, and those eyes...magificent. Neal Caffrey is so slick he could pose as Christian Grey.

Sazzie Lou said...

it has to be ian, its how ive pictured christian since i started reading the books & his just soo sexy but if not ian then matt

Stacy said...

Of all those, I'd say Ian- but my top choice is Chris Pine! YUMMMM

linda said...

my vote goes to alexander skaarsgard lol love him as eric in true blood and think he could pull it off :) xxx loving the chapters as always emine, cant wait for the break up!!! x

Anonymous said...

Ian all the way!!! So hot!!! Forgot to submit my second pick... Colin Egglesfield!! So yummy!

SunnyDays said...

Whew! I need a fan and a glass of water - FAST! lol!!
As I read the book I totally pictured Matt Bomer the entire time (with me as Ana, natch) but after I started googling about the movie rumors, I came across Ian. I didn't even know who he was really. Now I have to say, he rose to the top right away! He's got that sexy glare and that eyebrow! I think he could play the sweet sensitive side really well and then easily shift into the dom role. I know in the book his hair is "copper colored" but I never really pictured him that way. Now Ian is totally my Christian Grey no matter what! :)

Sophie said...

OMG Henry's just so HOT & gorgeous, very delicious yet with a hint of bad boy in him!!!

TBH I'm so into Robert Pattinson that it's really hard to think of other actor to play this Christian Grey character.

Anonymous said...

Alexander Skarsgard all the way (even though he's not pictured). He is definitely who I see as Christian. However, Ian Somerhalder comes in at a VERY...EXTREMELY close 2nd.

N said...

Henry!!!! Ian is way too pretty, he doesnt have that manly rugged good looks of Christian Grey.

I've been silent for a while, but I still drop by to read every post. Love your work, thank you for taking time out of your life to satisfy our indulgences!!!

Natalee =D

Anonymous said...

I can only imagine Ian or Henry, Ian eyes are just divine., and to me he is my no 1 choice. Though I have the occasional Christian Bale image creep into my imagination when reading the book. Love the Turkish guy, HOT HOT HOT but I would think he would have an accent, and my Christian doesn't .

Ani said...

I still love Henry Cavill (29 years old) as Christian Grey. I have Matt Bomer(34 years old) a close 2nd after watching him in White Collar and his guest spot on Glee and he is in the new movie Magic Mike. My concern with Matt is his age.. even though IMO he looks much younger it may be another year at least before the movie goes into production.

Anonymous said...

hey I was thinking Alex Skarsgard would be kind of nice. he has that haunted look, the sarcasm and the sexy body. also, the books started as fan fiction for vampire stories so casting him would be a kind of nod to that.

Melissa said...

I've always loved Ian for my Christian, but i think Matt Bomer comes in a close second (for me).

Tash said...

Ian Ian Ian. All I can say. Only other substitute is Alexander starsgard ;). They are they ONLY men that can hold a candle to Christian or my beloved husband Anthony xxx Tash. Much love

Eminé Fougner @ Cowboyland said...

I think there are so many great choices for casting Christian.

Ian: I've seen him play Damon, and he can be dark, secretive, pretend he doesn't care for you but secretly in love. He's a pretty boy but he can pull it off.

Alexander Skarsgård: He can play a range of roles. He's done a great job so far as Eric in True Blood, and I've seen him in the Battleship. He was great. Generation Kill was another great series he's done. He's versatile, good looking. I think he can pull it off very easily.

Matt B.: He's very pretty, but he could never make me believe that he's been sleeping around since he was 15, and had a playroom with 15 past participants.

Henry Cavill: Good looking, can look tortured (he was great as a tortured demigod). He can do it.

Kivanc: He has all the prerequisites, and has been known for Christian like behavior. I've heard him speak English (British accent). He's skilled. He might also speak Dutch having a longtime Dutch girlfriend. I think language would be only deterrent, but the guy has many talents.

As for Ana, for the life of me, I can't find one single actress to fulfill that role. I think they should hold casting from public-not just actresses. That's a very hard role. Ashley Greene maybe. Finding the right Ana is a lot harder I think.

Laura said...

My favs are Matt Bommer and Ian Somerhalder. I would be really really happy if either one got the part.

Anonymous said...

Ian Somerhalder all the way... he is who i pictured as of half way through the first book... He can be so mean while inside loving... He is so tormented. He fits everything, not to mention hot as hell.

SOAR said...

Ian Somerhalder is the only person I can see playing Christian Grey and if not him Chris Pine will do. Has anyone thought about Kat Dennings from the show 2 broke girls as Ana? She is the only young female actress that I think who would do Anna some justice

N said...

The only actress that can pull off Ana perfectly is Alexis Bledel!! Google her, she's the exact description of Ana. Yes, she is older, but she sure does not look it. She's got my vote!!

Anonymous said...

Chris Pine is all I ever visioned as Christian Grey.

Since these are my only choices, I would be Ian but he is shorter than CTG is described.

Sandy said...

Obviously my only choice is Ian. I will have a meltdown of epic proportions if he isn't cast as Grey.

Acceptable choices for me (after I ambrought back to life if the powers-that-be are blind and choose someone else) would be Henry or Colin.

I will NOT see the movie if Alexander Scargross or Robert Pattison are cast.

I am die hard Grey fan to the point of friends blocking me from their timelines and texting me to STOP! So to not see the movie is blasphemy. But those two actor would ruin Christian for me and I would not be able to enjoy it.

Starwitch said...

Matt or Henry... Matt just does it for me though. <3

Starwitch said...

And THANK YOU for not having Robert as a choice.

Deborah said...

So I was watching some old Vampire Diaries episodes, and I now feel Ian is Chrisitian..that role was made for him! I think Taylor Kinney ( he played Mason Lockwood) should be Elliot! I think Ana should be played by Alexis bledel..I know she is like 29 but she looks like she is 21..she has that innocent look, those blue eyes, pale skin, and she is quirky, awkward, and beautiful.

Eminé Fougner @ Cowboyland said...

Ian got the role of Damon down to a tee. When I read the books, I couldn't think of anyone who could properly play that dark character, and he actually was dark, until he met his love interest Elena of course. Lo and behold, Ian perfected that role. So, I can see him doing justice to Christian. I do like Alexis Bledel especially in Gilmore girls. Yes, she'd be a good choice. But I still think that they should at least test Ashley Greene see how she does it.

Jude said...

Christian: Matt looks exactly the part. I actually pictured him (or something quite close) as I read the book. But he seems like such a nice guy in interviews and even on his show that it's hard to picture him portraying the dark side of Christian Grey. But maybe... Ian, on the other hand, could act the hell of the part. The way he's done Damon has proven that. So for me, Matt looks the part; Ian I'm confident could act it.

Ana: Either Felicity Jones (English actress) or Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls). Period. They can both be "beguilingly" sexy/beautiful yet completely innocent. And they both have experience acting the skittish nervous yet totally cute girl... and, let's face it, the pack all the physical attributes.

Anonymous said...

Alexander Skarsgard!!!...he could def pull of that sexy 'Grey' attitude.

Brandi Young said...

Alexander Skarsgard! He would be amazing as Christian. He's tall, sexy, in great shape, and could pull this role off no doubt. Ian doesnt seem 'manly' enough to be Christian. Sure he's beautiful but he's more 'teen' than 'man' in my opinion. He's short and petite, not like Grey. I watch both Vampire Diaries and True Blood and I would much rather watch Alexander as Christian. Alexander may not be as gorgeous as Ian but with how great he plays his roles, any girl will find him sexy as Christian. I mean, Robert Pattinson is not that cute at all and look at how girls were pining over him---only because he was the lead. Im sure everyone would love Alexander too :)

Anonymous said...

Ok Now I have two new suggestions... (I know there was already a vote but I wanted to throw them out there anyway)
Chris Pine
http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2798618368/nm1517976

and
Shawn Roberts
http://www.imdb.com/media/rm989433088/nm0731575

I really like Matt Bomer but I think he is too old for the part. Still hot though.

Oh, I now see someone else suggested Chris Pine, too! Ooops. Great Minds think alike ;)

Edie said...

Henry Cavill IS Christian Grey! Have you seen his Dunhill Black ads on you tube? They SCREAM Fifty! He has the looks,the body,the eyes & that boyish smile. He can be sexy & classy businessman yet you don't see off hand he is a dominant but oh can he play dominant. In Tudors he has been playful,seductive,pained,charming & can play all 50 shades of Christian easily. He also has done steamy scenes & nudity so the explicit scenes would be no problem. I love Ian on VD but his evil look already says dominant & don't see him as a classy businessman. He is also so well known for his Damon role like Rob & Kristen are for Edward & Bella. Being that Matt is gay, I just can't see him being the fantasy we women have in Christian. But he is a beautiful man. Henry looks like a greek god as described & has the resume to prove he can do it all. His Dunhill Ads alone run like a mini 50 shades movie. As for Ana I think Alexandra Daddario would be perfect. She has the long brown hair,blue eyes to big for her face,alabster skin & lips for biting. At 26 she is beautiful with out being to sexy yet can still do sexy when done up. She looks 22 yet is mature enough for the steamy scenes. They would look great together!

Steph; I've never heard of him, but he's quite good looking. Thank you for sharing!

I am really torn between Ian and Henry. Either one of these gorgeous men would suit me fine!

Anonymous said...

Cillian Murphy has been my Fifty whilst reading these books but looking at the pics of Ian, he ticks the right boxes too!

AnnKanni said...

Cillian Murphy! He's got the 50 shades down pat, and could still pull off Christian's age.

Melissa said...

I think you should add the actor Hunter Parrish from Weeds. He already was in a dom/sub scene on weeds, is the right age, has the body, face and golden copper hair with the grey eyes. Plus hes not that well known of an actor so we will catch everyone by surprise he is also a musician and can sing so can Christian...he's the perfect actor for the job!

Anonymous said...

L Said...

I think Ryan Gosling for Christain (He can command a room and give the dark emotional side)He rocks a suit. Check out some of his pics. For Anastasia Ashley Greene would be perfect, she can look beautiful plain or made up. Her dad is an ex-marine. Her lastest quote was :I'm looking for things that are going to push the boundaries." Need I say more.

Prince50 said...

Well i got to say I just gaped at the picture of IAN and his "hair" I can only say his gaze body and the look he is the one there are close seconds but he is the only one that make me just checking if i am breathing.Mummm Ana I one of those woman girl!

Prince50 said...

O and for Ana I choose a soap star!
Jacqueline MacInnes Wood.

Unknown said...

If I thought that Kivanc could do the part without a Turkish accent, then I would choose him. He is perfect. The right age, height, looks. But since that accent would get in the way, I go with Ian. He sure looks taller than he is.

Oh, and add me to those who are thankful that you did not list RPattz as a contender. Oh no. He would be awful.

Anonymous said...

I know everyone thinks the Ian would be perfect for the role because of his bad boy act in Vampire Daries, but if he got the part, that's what people would always associate it with. It's been there done that for him. You need an actor that is going to have a new perspective on the role. Matt Bomer can totally pull it off. For those of you that havent seen White Collar, the gay thing is not an issue, he can totally do the sexy straight man role. People need to think outside the box and not go for the most obvious choice, like Ian, just because he already plays a similar role.

Anonymous said...

Although I think Ian is a hansome young man, I feel however that he has no characteristics of a businessman and christian grey is! Matt Blomer has proven this in white collar and should be the true contender. Ian is also a little too feminine for my taste x sorry Ian

Tiffany said...

Matt Bomer all the way..Who gives a crap if he's Gay..That should not even be a factor with his acting chops..On "White Collar" he portrays a straight Con-Man who is a womanizer. He pulls it off so well and would be perfect for CG.. I agree, Think outside the box, and go for someone who has the looks and acting ability.. I'm so sick of people thinking he can't do it because he likes boys..WHO CARES! I don't picture him with men when I watch his show..He's amazing..He's dark, and mysterious in many ways that I KNOW he can do CG... Get over the fact he is Gay.. It's shallow and insulting.. He's so freaking hot and has my vote %100...Ian, Alex S., and Ryan Gossling? Are you kidding me? Just my opinion

Eminé Fougner @ Cowboyland said...

I'm so looking forward to the auditions to see who they will actually pick. Wouldn't it be nice if they released the audition tapes? That way the real fans could vote on it. I think that would make it very easy for people to cast their votes and help make a decision.

Anonymous said...

MATT BOMER without a shadow of a doubt! 1. his not massively known (I'm from UK and only just heard of him) can't be having a really well known actor...would overshadow the character. 2. He looks exactly how the character is described...people keep saying he needs to have massive muscles, where in the book does it say that? only says he looks like he works out. 3. HE CAN ACT! (just started watching white collar...brilliant) 4. his drop dead gorgeous...all he needs is copper highlights and his good to go. I've pictured Matt all the way through reading, he fits the bill as Christian.... wouldn't be hugely disappointed if Ian was cast....just can't see him as a billionaire businessman...his cute but doesn't have the perfect profile described in the book. Also Felicity Jones for Ana! But having said all this.....probably pick a completely unknown actor....still a girl can dream and I'm going with Matt!!!

Andrea said...

Matt Bomer all the way.....HE is Christian Grey. Pictured him through out the book and his is one very sexy man. Pls check out the FB page Campaign to get Matt Bomer cast as Christian Grey.
He could pull this role off without a doubt!!
MATT BOMER FOR CHRISTIAN GREY! (Shouty caps!)

Natalie Brown said...

I'm a big fan of Matt Bomer love White collar and loved him in Glee, throughout the entire trilogy I've pictured Matt as Christian, he has the looks, the piercing stare Christian has, the long fingers, he looks incredibly hot with or without stubble. It even hints that Christian can sing in the books and boy can Matt sing, he looks great in a suit he's the all round perfect Christian Grey PLEASE VOTE FOR MATT =)

Tiffany said...

Andrea, i'm on also a part of that FB page... Keep the votes coming for Matt Bomer!

Anonymous said...

Campaign for Matt Bomer fan! Yes it is amazing that if Matt had not come out like a majority of our actors out there, a small percentage of those concerned about the Gay word, there wouldn't be an issue. Yes please check out White Collar. The character is a definite shadow of what and who Christian Grey is. Matt is very convincing as an actor and Gay does not pop up in my feelings towards this ACTOR! Matt Bomer is Christian Grey. He was so born to be our beloved Fifty Shades of F-effed Up!

Matt Bomer is the PERFECT Christian Grey! He's the one and only CG in my eyes :)

Eminé Fougner @ Cowboyland said...

All the fans of a particular actor: Can I make a suggestion? Could you post a particular scene (from youtube or wherever you can find the video link) that could help convince the other fans as to why that actor should get the role of Christian?

I have possibly 3 actors in mind I like, and I think I'd be happy with any of the three. I know that there is LARGE number of fans who like Matt Bomer. I have to admit, I've only seen his pictures, and being someone who doesn't watch TV a lot, I haven't seen him act.

Use this as your platform to make your BEST CASE why your candidate should get the position.

Personally, I think the actors should look the part in the description of Christian. Equally as important he should possess the qualities Christian has. If someone is against Matt Bomer playing Christian because he's gay, please don't take it as prejudicial (it's be the same as if someone says a handsome black, or hispanic, or an Asian actor should not play Christian). That wouldn't fit the bill, and not because people are racist. Obviously Christian is white and very straight.

I know Matt Bomer looks hot. But convince me and rest of us that he can do what is expected of him on the screen. (I'm sure you've seen his movies/shows-give me a scene, an example). I'm open minded as a viewer and someone who will go and see the movie once it comes out. Being good looking isn't enough for the role of Christian - we all know that. If Matt (he's one of the 3 I have in mind as a candidate) can do what is expected of Christian, hey, let him do it.

Link up your clips please! Thank you!

Especially of Matt, Henry, and Ian and anyone else you have in mind :)

There are alot of beautiful actors but I think Matt bomer should be Christian Grey. His looks come the closest to the way the book describes them.He has piercing eyes, the same jawline, thick hair & straight nose. Ana describes him as beautiful & Christian Grey describes himself as having a pretty face. The most important thing is that he looks the most like a CEo.

Carla said...

MATT!!! 100%

Matt is great looking, but there is now way he could pull off the depth of this character, and his understanding of women. Maybe some of you need to read the books again.

Anonymous said...

Maybe you should watch White Collar! Matt has the looks and authority of a CEO and he plays very believable a straight womanizer with some kind of vulnerability and mystery around him.

Eminé Fougner @ Cowboyland said...

That picture of Ian (collage) actually is one of the readers here. You can submit pictures of your favorite person to be displayed here :)

The reason I have been using Kivanc's images is because, for one, he's not going to audition, but he's still within the description of him. 2. There are a lot of you who are deeply rooting for one of the actors above, and very likely one of them might get the position. I didn't want to be biased, and favor one over the other. We'll see that when the movie comes up obviously. That way you can still root for the actor of your choice but I won't be partial towards any single one of them.

Matt Bomer has striking blue eyes...Christian's one redeeming feature throughout the trilogy is his gray eyes...

Pam Kortness said...

I like all of the actors above. BUT none of them are Christian Grey to me. My pick from the start has always been ARMIE HAMMER. And here's why... Here's his stats:

Check out his pics here:
http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=armie+hammer&view=detail&id=CCDA7F2699B13420915BFBB8F4CC4AA436CCDBA9&first=1

Born: August 28, 1986- 26 years old
Birth Name: Armand Douglas Hammer "Armie"
Height: 6' 5"
American Actor
Awards: 3 wins & 5 nominations
Known for: The Lone Ranger, The Social Network, Mirror Mirror, J. Edger, Desperate Houswives, Billy: The Early Years , Flicka , Spring Breakdown , Blackout, Gossip Girl, Arrested Development.

In some shots he looks perfect to play the part as long as he does his hair the right way and tones up those abs. But the key is his voice! You have to listen to him speak! He has that perfect tone in his voice to be able to say "Hush now" & "Behave" in a way that would make anyone blush! He also has the sophistication and intensitity in his perfectly grey eyes. And of course, Im not gonna lie....I'd love to see him in those soft, worn out, playroom jeans with the top button undone ;-)

Pam, I'm so glad you put your input. This is the purpose of this chapter here; so you, the fans of FSOG can put forth their input. Sometime later in the evening, I'll insert some pictures of him. He's apparently 6'5" tall! Wow!

Ian all the way!
I was watching this video and all I could see was Christian Grey... he is so perfect for this, you know?
Check it out!

I stumbled upon this blog after searching through google on 50shades after seeing it being brought up on Instagram(some girls were discussing about it over a totally unrelated picture), twitter(re:50 shades of [insert something witty here]) and the news in general after it broke out that there's going to be a movie adaptation of it.. Curiosity got better of me so I went through wiki first, reading through spoilers and the origins for it. I can see how it's a bit twilight-esque because the female lead share the same insecurity and the male lead is totally rich,hot and fabulous but the rest of the story on an entirely different level.

Later I tried amazon because wiki did not provide me info on the second or third book and I read so many bad reviews I was convinced the author has completely took it off the track where the male lead is completely bonkers and unchangeable...oh how I was so wrong when I read your blog and I value your opinion so much that I'm wiling to give this trilogy a try despite its strong use of profanity and explicit content. I'm no stranger to the romance genre but like you, I do not appreciate bdsm and do not understand why anyone would practice it.

Reading your reviews feels like I've read the books and although I know it's not the same experience I feel like I've already know who Ana and Christian are and was so anxious to see who was casted for the movie adaptation.... Turns out no one is casted yet and at first when I scrolled through this post I agreed that Ian somehalder is a good fit (note: good,not perfect as I felt as if he was missing something) and then later on when I scrolled down till I saw Matt Bomer in a suit. Omg I thought to myself, he's the one!! I know there has been controversy surrounding his ability to act because he's gay, but if Matt can pull this off, this speaks volumes for his acting ability (cue many similar roles offered to him in the future!!!) ... Of course nothing is set in stone and I hope he auditions along with the other contenders...

Likewise, this is like how fans reacted to Rob Pat when he was casted as Edward.. Everyone could not believe it - even me... He did not look like the Edward I perceived him to be in my mind. But what got him the role was the chemistry he had with Kristen.

So guys - end of the day it's not only about the looks, it's about the chemistry he has with the female lead. (I voted for Matt though)

Cherry said...

Oh I've seen someone comment about alexander skarsgard! He's great - him as Eric Northman on true blood who is also the dark, twisted guy at the start but later gets sexually attracted to the female lead and then starts to care for her, etc.

Not sure if he wants to take on this character though(its vaguely similar and thats boring for certain actors£ but he definitely has the dominant aura about him

For me there is no one but Alexander Skarsgard. He has it all, the stature, the menace of Dom, the edge of business guy in a suit, the ice, the heat, the broken boy, long fingers, hips that pants always hang just so on, that silky voice when he says "Do you now?"... Mm. Perfection :-)

On finding Ana, the real question is, the chemistry...someone unexpected could work. I know Alexis Bledel is technically physically spot on for the role, but her acting history doesn't work for me in my mind. However, the way 'Ana' clicks with whomever is cast is really the crux of making this movie work. Casting is tricky business I think. Personally, I like to think of Mila Kunis, she has those huge eyes (granted not blue, more hazel right?), amazing mouth, small little frame...and I could imagine she would sizzle onscreen with my cast choice, Alexander Skarsgard. But even Ian, she would look good with him...but can she do innocent? I'd like to see her try.
Anyway, time will tell...

~*PaKaHaJa*~ said...

I'd have to say Alex Pettyfer or Mat B for Christian

And as for Anna I think Katharine McPhee (smash) could work. She is absolutely STUNNING!!!! Hubby hasn't even read the book and he thought of he immediately after me talking about it. :)

Matt Bomer Definitely I didn't even know who he was until someone told me about him Then as soon as I saw him I just knew he was Christian Grey to a tee

Anonymous said...

Matt Bomer all the way I hadnt even heard of him until someone pointed him out to me that they were thinking of him to play Christian Grey while I was reading #50shades Now I can't imagine anyone else playing him Matt's just Christian to a tee

Matt Bomer fits Christian's description EXACTLY - it's eerie!

Anonymous said...

I read the trilogy in 6 days.. when i read the 1st book, FSOG, i immediately imagined Matt Bomer as Christian, and I knew he was gay... He definitely has the chops to act as evidenced in his White Collar TV show, he can pull off the CEO look anytime, anywhere..Matt, i think can have the vulnerability in CG's character.. I would also like to have EMILIA CLARKE as Anastasia Steele.. if you guys haven't heard of her she is Daenarys (khaleesi) in Game of Thrones.. She fits the AS description of brunette, blues eyes too big on her face, etc..

Hello,

May I ask that Matt last name be corrected. It is BOMER, not BROMER.

Please and Thank you! Of course he is our guy! Christian Grey can easily be played by Matt Bomer.

Here is another pic to add for Matt's portfolio. http://www.facebook.com/?ref=tn_tnmn#!/photo.php?fbid=343800919042300&set=a.316349385120787.75660.314817875273938&type=1&theater

Thanks again!

This blog is so amazing and I love your style of writing Emine.

Sary from FB page Campaign to cast Matt Bomer as Christian Grey

Eminé Fougner @ Cowboyland said...

Unfortunately, I can't make any changes to the contents of the survey once the voting has started. I realized the misspeling of his last name as soon I posted; however he was the first one to get a vote, and it became impossible to make alterations to the voting. But his correct info is listed above.

Matt Bomer as Christian Grey

Blake Lively as Kate Kavanaugh

Jensen Ackles as Elliot Grey

Lucy Hale as Mia Grey

Drew Van Acker as Ethan Kavanaugh

Wilmer Valderamma as Jose Rodriguez

Genie Francis as Gayle Jones

Chris Meloni as Luke Sawyer

Katey Segal as Grace Trevelyn-Grey

Emilio Estevez as Carrick Grey

I compiled this cast list by scowling the internet trying to find in my opinion the perfect cast for the “50 Shades of Grey” movie. I know I am not in charge of the casting, but if the film production company contacted me, this is who I would pick. Let me know what you think. Thanks!!!

Christal said...

Alexander Skarsgard DEFINITELY! He has a sex dungeon in true blood for goodness sakes! Ian somerholder close 2nd

Anonymous said...

My first choice with Matt Bomer Until I watched the YouTube trailor, though the acting was good I didn't think you fit the profile due to the way you wore his hair!
I'm going with Ian for the characteristics stated in the book but Matt's acting Is divine!

Ebeth Marie said...

Matt's name is spelled wrong in the voting box.

Eminé Fougner @ Cowboyland said...

Yes I know Marie. I tried to fix it as soon as I posted it, but he got the first vote, and prevented me from changing it. Sorry :(

at first i thought ian is perfect for cg, after seeing him in VD, but when i fire up the search engine with christian grey's name, and seeing MATT BOMER, i cannot believe my own eyes he's like coming out from the pages of FSOG! i cannot picture any other guy aside from him as MY FIFTY! MATT FOR CHRISTIAN. NO ONE ELSE!! I LOVE YOU MATT BOMER!

Anonymous said...

It has to be Ian! No one else could do Christian justice. Just watch him in vampire diaries and you can see it. He has the tortured soul thing down.

Anonymous said...

Matt Bomer! When you see him you just say: This is Christian Grey!!!!!!!

Torii Borg said...

While reading all 3 books .... (4 times) even time i read about Chirstian all i see is Matt Bomer, He has the look and the body and just has all the facial features i see when i read about CG. There is also a picture of Matt Bomer in a gray suit, just like int he book and all you can see is CG.

A.Givehei said...

I Choose Ian, not just because of his great looks ... because of his perfect acting as a bad/good guy.
his best show is on The Vampire Diaries and "i" personally do not say this ... all of the vamp diaries fans say ... that he is the definition of Perfection ...

A.Givehei said...

Ian Somerhalder

as all the vampire diaries fans say: he is The Perfection of an actor!

Just, Watch 2 of first episodes of the vampire diaries season 1, you will find out ... Ian Somerhalder is THE PERFECTION !

watch the show, then u can choose matt! (hahahaha) its very ridiculus... no one can math IAN!

Anonymous said...

matt b. His eyes r gorgeous,preying,mysterious! N let's not forget his mouth n everything else! Perfect for the fit! Although if its not him ian s. They sorta look alike! ;)

Rachel Barraclough said...

What about Ryan Gosling? He's famous for starring in The Notebook. He's got that mysterious look about him. He played a character who I felt had similar characteristics to Christian in Crazy Stupid Love last year (not the womeniser bit, but the falling in love bit)

Jake said...

Here in Brazil most of the fans want Ian, and a second option would be Matt B. Ian has a bad boy look on his face, that make believe he had 15 subs before fall in love. Ian all the way!!!

Tiffany Minnie said...

Ryan Gosling! First of all, let me point out that he has better acting chops than this list. His body is a Wonderland and his hair is copper. He also looks damnable good in a suit and if you've seen movies like Drive and All Good Things, you know he can play the controlling temperamental role well. He's diverse and seasoned and I think with some gray contacts, he is the perfect Christian Grey. Yes, this list is good, but for a role like this we need someone who we know will deliver and I don't think any of these guys have. Ian is a good choice only because of the eyes and the mysterious look but other than that, he's not experienced enough to play a role that could make or break a career like this one.

Kaili said...

Ian Somerlander as CG for sure! Just watch him in vampires dairies and you'll have your answer.
Alexis Bledel as Ana---she was great as Rory Gilmore in Gilmore girls. That character was totally Ana during her college years at Harvard.

Scott Elrod is hot! But he is not CG he fits the character of Gideon Cross from Sylvia Day's : crossfire series!

Kaniemer10 said...

You forgot Ryan Gosling. Omg would he
Make the perfect Christian.

Kaniemer10 said...

Ryan Gosling was the first guy that came to my mind when I started reading the books and the description of Christian

Sheila Hall said...

My vote for Christian in the new film would be for Matt Bomer, and Alexis Bledel for the part of Ana. I just happen to like the pair of them, especially Matt. For me, Matt is my Christian, he has everything that Christian should be.
Even if he does not get the part, although I will be very disappointed, I will still go to see the film when it eventually comes out.

Backsassing said...

I am changing my vote to the Turkish guy...

Audrey said...

Like most of you... I didnt know who Matt Bomer was until i saw the you tube unofficial trailer and he just what I imagine CG would be like, its scary!, its as if the character actually exist and its not a mere fiction.

I think Alexis is good but didnt really think of her as Ana till i saw the trailer but yeah her voice and her acting ... Err i dont know much since i only watch her in GG. Though she make a perfect fit with Matt. Another actress that might do for Ana. Leighton Meester (Blair) in gossip girl. She doesnt have the blue eys but that can be easily fix with a blue contacts on. She can be sexy, innocent, has the legs and body to pull 'ana' off. Either she's ana or leila since she can look a bit like alexis.

Audrey said...

I do simcerely hope that they would pick Matt and that he also willing to go for the role. Despite the age, i think anyone younger wouldnt really able to pull off the character well. Matt would be just oerfect and the fact he is gay is quite irrelevant. Its all about his acting skills. Its not as if he 'looks' gay. None of us would think so if he's not openly admit he's gay. It shouldnt matter.

Cant wait to see who would play CG.

Matt Bomer - smoldering look, sexy, tortured, sensitive! Those eyes are so absorbing and expressive! The total package!

Don't forget Stephen Amell! He totally has the look and presence of Christian Grey! He is absolutely a fantastic fit for Christian's character!

Matt Bomer fits the profile to a T! Sexy isn't even the word, he can totally give the panties drop smile and make women drool over him in the hot shot CEO suit.
