Every where that i have looked up information on this and read the reviews 9 out of 10 HATE the people chosen and I for one STRONGLY agree. The books were amazing and have set such an expectation and visual in our minds. This is the reason i hate when movies are made from books because the people chosen- ESPECIALLY for Christian and Ana- are so unbelievably disappointing that it really makes me angry. I really can not fathom how or why these people would EVER be picked for these roles. If everyone that read the books doesnt like these people then how could the writter of the books???? I get that maybe you dont want 'known' people to play the roles, but for the sake of all the fans, i think there needs to be an exception. The two actors that everyone seems to want really arent THAT known or famous. The characters need to have a presence, especially Christian, from just a glance and these people do absolutely NOTHING. Christian is supposed to make women blush and wet merely by standing there and Ana is supposed to be beautiful. Sorry but neither of these actors come even close. They look like ordinary people you would see at a store and pass by like they dont exist. Apart of me would love to see the relationship put into life... But from the cast of these roles I really would rather not have it all ruined in my mind. So utterly disappointed already and its not even made. I dont understand it.... Long, deep sigh Brian15397521 26 weeks I think most of the characters fit except for Mia, Ana, and Jason Vivigunz 26 weeks I honestly think all the actors are wrong!!! They do not fit any image I had in my mind while reading these books... They are all older. I really think they should let us pick or have a poll on who should play what part because honestly this movie is not looking any bit interesting to me at all..... 15396305 26 weeks Toby Stephens was the perfect choice for Christian Grey, copper hair with the mind plus body the role needs. DeAnna3431470 26 weeks Christian Grey should be played by Matt Bomer! This guy is not the hunk for this picture! Earline15275337 31 weeks You picked the wrong person to play Ana. Dakota looks too old to play a 22 year old. She's not the picture you get in your head when you read how she should look. You need someone really young looking and really "pretty". Not sure yet on Jamie Dornan. The guy who plays Christian needs to be a drop dead hunk. Not sure Jamie fills that spot. BillieDawnHerrera 31 weeks Candice Accola should play Kate. Holland Roden should play Mia. Luke Grimes should play Ethan. Kellen Lutz should play Elliott. Other than that I think Jamie D. and Dakota J. should be good as Christian and Anastasia. Peg-E15248379 32 weeks HOLLYWOOD SUCKS! The characters are all wrong! Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson aren't even attractive enough to play these roles. Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel were much better characters! Did anyone doing the movie read the book? I won't spend my money on this movie!! Jinky15239049 32 weeks Oh No!! I really like Matt Bomer to play the role, he is best suit as christian Grey as i pictured it out. To the makers of this movie please don't make us disappoint.. I really looking forward to the movie and i expect Matt Bomer. Thank u. I am your fan reader in the phils.. :-) Kathy15231280 32 weeks I would like to know where they found Mia from. She was not who I pictured as his little sister. I think the other ones will be okay but Matt Bomer might have played a good christain though. But I can see Jamie Dornan as him too. So thanks for the visual. Shewll 33 weeks This is all wrong. Especially Elliot and Bob. KristaHedrick 33 weeks What in the world, are they thinking with the casting of Bob? I pictured a much older man this guy looks like he could be Anna's brother! And Mia!!!!!! So not what I pictured her looking like !!! Ahhhoney 36 weeks I wanted Alexis Bledel and Matt Bomer to play the leads and was horrified when they cast the people they did. Now that I've watched some interviews with Dakota Johnson and seen the on set pics I feel she personifies Anastasia. She has this sexy awkward way of speaking that makes one think of Anastasia, the longer you see her the cuter she gets. From what I've seen of Dornan I feel like he would be the perfect Christian if only he was more passionate and intense, don't get me wrong I'm starting to love him as grey. I'm really rooting for this movie since I loved the books so much. Barb15152965 36 weeks I know everyone has their ideas of who should be the leads in Shades of Grey but give these guys a chance. They might prove to surprise you. Is that not what happened with the lead stars of "Twilight'? Did you know Kristin Stewart and Robert Patterson before that movie? Bernadette15122181 38 weeks I was so excited when I heard they were making a Fifty Shades Of Grey movie!! I think every woman had a picture of the exact Christian in their head but sadly the people chosen have diminished the excitement and seems to have created an ordinary cast, Enthusiasm Diminished!!! Bernadette15122181 38 weeks Cheryl14763055 38 weeks Teresa15120542, I respectfully disagree with Cam Gigandet as Christian. He was great in Twilight and all, but I don't really think he fits the part of Christian. Teresa15120542 38 weeks You totally have the wrong guy to play the part of Christian Grey - there is only one actor who should be playing that part and his name is Cam Gigandet (probably spelled last name wrong) but you should recast and definitely use Cam!!! Anita15113297 38 weeks I think that obviously whoever chose Christian Grey's cast was not a woman!!! We all know we were expecting a sexy bomb to fill our minds like Matt Bommer...very dissapointing... The-Real-Eric-Jonrosh 38 weeks How could I be both shocked, appalled and aroused all at the same time? By following the coverage of "50 Shades of Grey: The Motion Picture," that's how! Every twist plays out like a scene in "The Spoils of Babylon," a story every bit as spellbinding as "50 Shades." At first, I was delighted to hear the prodigious young Charlie Hunnam was involved. He was a wonder in "Pacific Rim" which I saw in midst of an ongoing 12-year scotch bender. But I hear the coward has dropped out! Shame on you, Charlie! I shall never forgive you. The role of Christian Grey was a guaranteed Oscar, Emmy and maybe even a Heisman. But having seen Jamie Dornan's sensuous perfume commercial, or maybe it was an Arby's commercial, I believe he can deliver Grey's dull-eyed millionaire-saving-the-world-from-hunger sensibilities with great enthusiasm. And now furthermore I hear the release has been postponed until February. THIS IS CRIMINAL! But at least we starving masses can content ourselves with "The Spoils of Babylon" set to air on IFC January 9th at 10/9c. It shall have to be a powerful antidote, because my glutes burn for "50 Shades of Grey." September15078305 39 weeks People keep saying what happened to Ian Somerhalder, Matt Bomer or Alexis Bledel. None of these people were ever cast, the only person who was supposed to be in the movie and now isn't is Charlie Hunnam, and that was his choice. All of these other actors were just celebs that people wanted to be cast but there was never any confirmation of these people. Plus, E.L. James made it very clear that she wanted unknown actors to fill the roles, not these widely famous people. CJ50grey 39 weeks What the heck happened to Matt Bomer & Alexis Bledel as Christian & Anastasia? They were PERFECT as the charactors portrayed in the books. No offence to Dakota or Jamie but they both lack the chemistry and essence of Christian & Anastaia. I wouldn't even bother to see the movie with them as the charactors. Bomer has the looks and dangerous senuality to turn your head without speaking a word and Bledel has the quiet strength that leaves you wondering what she's thinking again, without saying a word. The movie would go straight to a blockbuster with these two playing the parts rather than just another chick flick with Dakota & Jamie. To coin an email subject line from Christian and Anastasia.....CAREFUL. You are about to miss the mark with your casting choice folks! Megan15032709 40 weeks Ian Somerhalder would have been the best choice to play Christian Grey! ! 100% I think they also need someone a little more innocent looking for Ana Steele. The cast as it is just doesn't do it for me. I'm disappointed Aquarius14650473 42 weeks Chris is okay as Christian gray. but I wish Ian somerhalder was the sexy good looking Christian gray !. iam soooooo disappointed that Ian s. didn't get the chance to play this hot role as Christian gray !. Victoria14977236 42 weeks How about Chris Hemsworth for lead in Fifty shades of Grey? He looks the role. Cheryl14763055 43 weeks WTH is this on IMDB about Wellington Barrientos being rumored as cast for the part of Christian Grey??????? If this is who they choose for the part then it will ruin the movie!!!!!! Don't get me wrong, he is nice looking, but he is not what is portrayed in the book for Christian Grey. I really think that Joseph Morgan would make an excellent Christian Grey. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2322441/?ref_=nv_sr_2 Right now I am of the opinion that if they are going in this direction I would rather have had Charlie Hunnan. Nancy14962846 43 weeks STEPHEN ARNELL (the Arrow) would make a SUPER Christian Grey....Let's get a campaign gong for him to replace Charlie Hunnam (although I'm sad he dropped out...) but Mr. Arnell is very HOT as well! Chris14956701 44 weeks Fassbender and Mara are my choices that was who I envisioned while listening to all 3 books. Fantastic listening. bethboo2010 44 weeks noooo, he cant be christian grey, christian grey is young, not old looking like he is, Ian Somerhalder should be him and as for Ana, she should be played by Alexis Bledel. they're not going to do well if they cast people like them Jacob14954483 44 weeks No no no no no. Matt Bomber or Chris Pine would be the best Christian Greys. They both have the best looks and especially Chris Pine with his eyes could great. BridgetteFigginsAnderson 44 weeks I believe Steve Burton would make an awesome Christian Grey. He already as that sexy stare and dark side. Linda14919918 46 weeks Charlie I think will do a wonderful job as grey.....hes got the looks no.1 and he plays both sides of the coin as jax.as I read the book I visualized him in that part(a dirty mind is a terrible thing to waste)...and I think hes PERFECT !...GOOD LUCK CHARLIE ! LOOKING FORWARD TO THE MOVIES NOW ! Elaine14913606 47 weeks Don't like the choice for Christian Grey, hes not good looking and his eyes are set too close together, if the film is not out till Summer 2014 there is still time to swap him with a hot Bod, as for Anastasia, shes fine MELISSAMORRIS49196 47 weeks i don't like who you have choosen for the lead roles in the movie. Very dissapointing Janaya14895099 48 weeks I'm disappointed I like Charlie in sons but he seemed to have a hard time being romantic then hmm and as for the girl I know she's young but looks like she is her late twenties early thirties ! And with all that face on !! The book character reminds me of a young very natural looking girl blah I might watch in hopes they'll prove me wrong but nowhere near what I had imagined I wonder what the author thinks Iesha14882451 48 weeks I disagree with the pick for Christain Grey. Charlie Hunnam will fit well for the brother Elliot but not as Christian. I think Chris Pine would make a very nice Christian Grey. Dakota Johnson with brown hair is a very good pick. She suits the part. I really hope they recast his part and don't settle. It will be a complete disaster Cheryl14763055 48 weeks @Aaron14864662, I have never understood why one has to be such a jerk. You call us "losers" for having an opinion and tell us to get outside more, but yet, you are online reading the comments. Hmmmm........it would appear that maybe you need to get outside more yourself. Kiesha14878055 49 weeks for me, he is not perfect for the role of christian grey, he is not so f***ing hot. for anastasia steel i'm okay for dakota johnson, she's pretty and sexy.. ahman 49 weeks So sad. Just based on descriptions in the book, the chosen don't fit the bill. Not saying they aren't great actors but the book goes out of it's way to describe the two in detail and they disappoint in that department. I was excited to see these characters brought to life on the big screen so I could say, "okay, I get it. That's what she/he was talking about". I mean, if I was a sketch artist and was asked to sketch Christian and Ana using the details in the book, Charlie and Dakota would not be the outcome. Just sayin. Alyssa14867145 49 weeks I think Charlie Hunnam is perfect for this role, and for all of the people who are freaking because of his hair color.. The author clearly described him with Copper Hair... not dark brown.. copper meaning a dark blondish red... and just because not everyone may find in attractive doesnt mean there arent a whole lot of people who do. Give them a chance, they were obviously cast in the roles for a reason. Taz69 49 weeks Btw Charlie Hunman is hot no one would kick him out of bed xx Taz69 49 weeks Has anyone maybe thought... It's a sexually explicit book...maybe these actors were the only two who consented to complete nudity and sexual acts on screen?!? I mean most Hollywood actors have body doubles or things they won't do!! I want to see Charlie and Dakota in 50 shades because they are unknown they have been pigeon holed yet. All the other choices for the lead roles were random... As it is a book everyone's interpretation of E.L James characters will be different ( not everyone's dream Christian grey is matt boomer, mine is Chris hemsworth)!!!! X Aaron14864662 49 weeks Oh quit worrying about hair color, it doesn't matter you colorists! Aaron14864662 49 weeks Oh quit worrying about hair color, it doesn't matter you colorists! Dawn14864920 49 weeks First of all I love Charlie Hunnam, although not who I pictured for this role, I can't wait to see what he can do. As someone said earlier that the character Chrisitian had dark brown hair you are confused he had a copper tone hair! Every person that has read these books has their own view and everyone is different so the argument will go on and on of who should play these characters. They were picked for a reason! Alice14860837 49 weeks Ok so Charlie Hunnam may not be that bad as Christian. He can play bad a$$ sexy like no tomorrow. There is always clippers for the hair, Ok on that not her I have no idea Dena14860401 49 weeks nope, I am so mad, he doesn't even look like a christian grey, christian is supposed to be a smoldering sexy man who takes your breathe away and he just isnt doing it. I'm sorry, this is ridiculous. I don't even know if i want to see the movie anymore. jeansc1110 49 weeks When I was reading these books I had picture in my head of what they would look like and I will tell u its not these two. Tami14858085 49 weeks maybe..............and that is just a SLIGHT..........MAYBE............you will not lose all your readers/possible viewers if you give us and insight as to what these "characters" will look like in the movie..........ie:::: buffer, hair color changes, contacts.........etc??? Monique14855990 49 weeks emilia clarke or alexis bledel should play anastasia...not dakota.. Monique14855990 49 weeks Total cast failure.... Monique14855990 49 weeks omg...im so dissapointed in the casting..Christian Grey should be either Colin Egglesfield..Ian Somerhalder..or Matt Bomer..atleast one of them not Charlie Hunnam ..so not a look for a christian grey charater..defeats the whole purpose of C.G charater..im okay with Dakota but they could of gone with Alexis Bledel..uhg..can they just re-cast...and i thought E.L james was going to choose her charaters..she knows more than anybody to play those characters...what happen to her intake!!!hoping for a change... Naeema1982 49 weeks I cannot believe that these two have the roles of Christian Grey and Ana! Especially Dakota Johnson is a bad choice! #blegh #hatingthis #movieisalreadyruined Jackie14854892 49 weeks Soooo not a good picture of Charlie/Jax,ppl look his pictures up on another website especially when his hair is cut and he would be a good choice for the movie he just doesnt have the dark hair you guys are looking for CoMMember13629820541652 49 weeks You will all be pleasantly surprised! Just watch some Son's of Anarchy. Charlie Hunnam is perfect for the part! ;) Chelsie14850866 50 weeks Ok this out right insane. this guy does not meet any requirements as christian grey he is to old and not in the least bit hot what so ever. christian grey is suppose to have dark brown hair and really fit. How could you do this to millions of fans that read this book and were all looking forward to a movie thats suppose to be as close to the book as possible and meet these requirements, but no you had to ruin the movie period and is going to disappoint more and more fans. i for one dont think i could watch the movie if it comes out because its is a disappointment for the the character christian grey who deserves a better actor as well as a better face and bed. come one no one wants to see a guy do a woman that invovles alot of kinky stuff. change the character before its to late where it could result in a poor selling rate. Teresa14850744 50 weeks No offence Charlie but he is not Christian Grey! This guy they hired is CREEPY looking.....eww,try again ok? Patty14850530 50 weeks Loved the Books, do not like the choices for the movie. I thought E.L. James said on her website that she would not make this into a movie if the characters were not exactly like the books described. We all have Christian Grey in our heads & this guy who ever he is , is not him!!! Dakota as Anatasia Steele, so not either! Too bad, wrong choices make for a poor cast! Patty Tommy14849765 50 weeks Looks like a casting for a low-budget B-movie. I'm keeping the fantasy of the books. Soooo much better !!! Silvia14848849 50 weeks Noooo...bad choice...Are u crazy? That guy cannot be Christian...I'm sorry for him...but so it is...IAN SOMERHALDER should be Christian...absolutely :) I don't think that I'll go to see the movie...it's all wrong ...really :) Paula14846371 50 weeks These are definitely not my idea of Christian and Anastasia. Christian should be tall with dark hair and much better groomed than this guy. Dakota might be OK as Anna. The producers should have asked for reader input before casting Christian. I am disappointed! The movie just won't hae the same intensity as the book. Too bad; I was really looking forward to seeing Christian on the big screen. Laters, Baby. MysticalRosePetals 50 weeks Ok I haven't read the book nor do I know who these actors are but they look like they're the worst choices. Ever. Dee14846106 50 weeks Oh and Alexis Bledel would have been the PERFECT innocent.... Dee14846106 50 weeks Matt Bomer... Yes Sir!!! This guy???? WTF????? Aquarius14650473 50 weeks your right !!. jintus 14845206 Ian somerhalder is the best choice !. he will always be the cool, sexy, hot Christian gray !. iam soon going to buy from the bookyou.com my own 50 shades of gray. you can make your own character as Christian gray and make yourself the star !!. Jintuš14845206 50 weeks Oh my god ! So many good looking actors, they choose THIS ?? I am so dissapointed ! My Christian Grey will always be Ian Somerhalder. This is just wrong. Maybe I don´t even want to see it. jeanettepk 50 weeks This is so not right. WTF are you thinking???? Matt Bomer is the PERFECT Christian Grey, not this creepy guy. This is as wrong as anything can be. Please reconcider this bad choice, and make all of us 50 shades fans haappy! Aminah14844850 50 weeks I don't understand how E L James allowed for these two to be selected for Cristian and Anastasia, they are totally wrong...i wote Matt Bomer or Ian Somelharder as Cristian Gray and Emilia Clark for Anastasia Steel... I hope that this casting doesn't ruin the movie because they both don't look anything like book characters... keeping my fingers crossed people!!!!!!!!!!!!! Diana14844773 50 weeks This guy is absolutly not sexy. It would have been better if theyhat take Matt Bomer ore Chris Pine or anyone else. CJS2805 50 weeks The two that are currently selected to play Christian and Ana is totally wrong. Especially he one to play Christian. My suggestions: Matt Bomer for Christian, Lucy Hale for Ana, Elizabeth Berkley for Elena, Scarlett Byrne for Leila, Katie Findlay for Mia, Ali Larter for Kate, Hayden Christensen for Ethan, Alex Pettyfer for Elliot. Monica14844132 50 weeks HE'S SO NOT CHRISTAIN GREY. LOOK AT THOSE EYEBROWS IN THE BOOK CHRISTAIN KNEW HOW TO USE A RAZOR LOL AND MOST GIRLS ARE ATTRACTED TO GUYS TALLER THEN THEM SELVES. HES TO SHORT. SHE'S OKAY JUST NOT THE ANNA I IMAGINE. I AGREE WITH EVERYONE ELSE ALEXIS BLODEL IS PERECT- Awolfe74 50 weeks OMG not a good choice on either of these two! This is not the image of totally gorgeous, powerful, dominant and mysterious Christian Grey! Sorry, but she doesn't come close to being the embodiment of Anastasia Steel either, should have cast Blake Lively. Bad casting!!! Totally wouldn't be interested in going to see them ruin these wonderfully written books :( BOOOO Aquarius14650473 50 weeks the best thing iam going to do soon is buy thebookbyyou.com you can name your own character to be Christian gray in 50 shades of gray. but I will never see the movie because my favorite actor is not Christian gray !!. Sherri14843642 50 weeks I am very disappointed in these two cast as christian and Anna. James Scott is the only person who could play Christian Grey. somebody please reconsider or this movie is over before its filmed, Loved the books but I won't go see the movie. Kathy14843410 50 weeks I am beyond disappointed with these choices. It's almost as though theses people didn't read their own books! I wouldn't even pay the $10 to watch them in the theatre. Christian Grey is supposed to be devastatingly handsome...I don't think most women will even find him mildly attractive. After such a long wait....I am completely let down. SO WRONG! Aquarius14650473 50 weeks iam sooooo disappointed in the 50 shades of gray choice !!. iam for sure not seeing the movie or buying the book !!. the choice for being Christian gray and Anna were sooooo stupid and dumb !!. this movie will never succeed !!!. Tanya14842297 50 weeks Will still go see it but am VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE CASTING CHOICES. CandiCe-Ericka14841527 50 weeks I think... Matt Bomer as Christian Grey, Emilia Clarke as Ana Steele, Amber Heard as Kate Kavanaugh, Alex Pettyfer as Elliot Grey, David Franco as Ethan Kavanaugh, Lacey Chabert as Mia Grey (a little bit), and Catherine Zeta-Jones as Mrs. Robinson ;) Αγγελίνα14840928 50 weeks In MY opinion..: Cristian Grey...hmm tuff one... i think Robert Pattinson or Ian Somerhalder would be great cause they have the look and the darkness in their eyes. Matt Bomer is also handsome enough to play Cristian but the darkness is missing and that's the main thing of the character. As Ana Steele Emilia Clarke is EXACTLY how I imagine Anastasia, she's perfect. Young, beautiful and innocent. For Mrs. Robinson- Charlize Theron. She's Elena. She's perfect. I think Nina Dobrev fits the role of Mia Grey. Sweet, young, pretty. Ray I think could be played by Liam Neeson. Leila should definately be played by Leighton Mester. Kate maybe Blake Lively. 22, blonde, green eyes, gorgeous. This is MY opinion! :) Brittany14835048 50 weeks i own the 50 shades of grey books and i think that matt bomer should be christian and alexis bledel should be ana they have awsome chemistry together and they fit the roles perfectly LisaLosa 50 weeks MAX IRONS - I see only him in this role! Camille14833566 50 weeks I've read the book fifty shades of grey. Matt Bomer fits the role of Christian Grey and Alexis Bledel as Anastasia Steel. They look awesome and have the chemistry together. Rachel14824209 51 weeks Alexis Bledel for Anastasia! & Matt Bomer for Christian Grey!!!!! kkparker 51 weeks I'm sorry they need to get Ian Somerhalder for the role of Christian Grey. I know and have read far too many women who have him in their heads when they picture Christian Grey to put anyone different in that role. As for females I know she hasn't broken into acting yet or that I know of tried to but my choice would be Miranda Kerr and this would be a good role for her. jeannineee12 51 weeks JAMES SCOTT! HE IS CHRISTIAN GREY! i swear if he is not casted i probably wont watch the movie because it will ruin the perfect image. go look him up and watch him act in days of our lives...he was MADE FOR THIS ROLE http://www.salemgazette.com/castbios/james_scott.html kms54 51 weeks I think hands down Jason Thompson, Dr. Patrick Drake on General Hospital, should play Christian Grey. As for the female role I thought she was brunet and all his employees were blonde?. I can't check this fact out because my books are all out on loan. Gena14794415 51 weeks Loved the series and glad someone will make the movie - I like Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence for the main characters - they have amazing chemistry together and he has that edge of authority and sexiness -both are fabulous actors - Sharon Stone would be great for the older woman part for sure - of course Robin Thicke for his good looks and sexiness but can he even act? doubt it - Liz14793045 51 weeks Ana = Emmy Rossum (those that watch Shameless KNOW she can pull off the acting AND the nudity that this movie should require), new fave for Chrisitian is Joseph Morgan (and I have to admit that I didn't even think of him until I saw him on this list!) and Michelle Pfeiffer OR Sharon Stone for Elena... Judith14792770 51 weeks Ian and Selena Gomez sistertiiye 51 weeks Ian has always been my first choice, but HOLY CHRISTIAN GREY, BATMAN... Chris Hemsworth is SMOKING HOTTT, and would also look great with Ginnifer Goodwin. sistertiiye 51 weeks Everyone, please Google images of Ginnifer Goodwin. She IS Ana!!! She is perfect for every change in look and style that Ana goes through in the books. And I don't think it would matter who was selected for the role of Christian (Ian or Matt Bomer, please), they would look great together. Raven14792279 51 weeks When I see all of the casting rumors, I automatically say no those are the wrong people to try and cast. For Ana, I see Lucy Hale. She's has this innocent quality to her look. For Christian, I see Ian Somerhalder. For Ms. Robinson I see, Cathrine Zeta Jones or Gwyneth Paltrow. That is all lol CoMMember13628248658074 51 weeks When I read the book, Matt Bomer is who I see for Christian. He is Christian Grey. If he doesn't get the part, I hope it goes to Ian Somerhalder. Casting this movie wrong will kill it's chances at the box office. I hope she really listens to her fans. Ian, Matt and Henry Cavill are the top choices. For Ana, I like Katie Cassidy, but I also like Ashley Greene, and some of the other choices on this site. Maddie1952 51 weeks I have seen many of the movie teasers. Matt Bomer and Alexis Sledel are perfect for the main characters. Their chemistry fit the parts. She's got that innocence about her and he's just so darn HOT. Who cares if he's gay. How many other men who play hot roles are gay? Read the book he's attracted to brunettes, not blondes. GennaStafford 51 weeks Juliana Hough I bet could do a Great Job as Ana ..Mrs. Robinson would have to be a older woman.. perhaps maybe even say Michelle Pfeiffer? Maybe Gwenthyn Paltrow.. she could pull that off too.. GennaStafford 51 weeks I think Robin Thicke could do Christian...OH MY WORD yes.. dallasre 51 weeks Matt Bomer IS Christian Grey! He just oozes it! The whole package. It is already in him. Janice14791392 51 weeks After reading all 3 books I can see Christian Bale as Christian. He has to be someone in his mid thirties, dark, mysterious. As for Ana, sh is described as a young, college graduate, short blond hair. I'm thinking maybe someone like Emma Watson or Dakota Fanning, Juliana Hough might not be bad but please don't pick any of the vampires from twilight. Ugh, we have already overindulged on them. JulieWilliamsSteigerwalt 51 weeks If they cast the shinny whinny vampire I will cry...... Kim14791315 51 weeks Robin Thicke would be the perfect Christian Grey. He's relatively new to the acting scene. He has the look and feel of Christian Grey...completely. Hot, sexy,dark, and charismatic. Now there's a box office draw! If casting does consider him, they are missing the boat big time. The other actors that are being considered are too "little boyish". They need a lady's man as well as a man's man to fill this role and to appeal to the masses. Robin Thicke is Christian Grey! Amie14791306 51 weeks Paul Walker would be the BEST Christian Grey!! and Anne Hathaway as Anna. Tammy3515837 52 weeks I can't believe some of the could be Christian and Ana's... Really??? LMAO... I picture Christian a lot like Robert Pattinson but I know a lot of people don't want him as Christian. Ellen Barkin is totally Mrs. Robinson... Julianne Hough could be Kate... And my top 3 for Ana.. Emma Stone, Emma Roberts, and Ashley Greene. Christian I am having a hard time with. I forget the guys name I saw before that fit him... This has to be hard for the casting team because everyone has a different Christian and Ana... I think they need to stick to the books descriptions.. Miška14782917 1 year I vote for Matt Bomer as Christian Grey and Alexis Bledel as Anna. Holledoll 1 year I was going for Devin Paisley or Matt Bomer to play Christian Grey, that is until I found out both are gay. Usually I wouldn't care at all but in this case and for this movie I think it ruins the fantasy of the roll. I'd rather have either of them though, much more so than any of the Twilight actors. Still, while anyone being gay usually wouldn't concern me, in the Christian Gray role I think to keep the fantasy alive, the actor needs to be straight. Holledoll 1 year I was going for Devin Paisley or Matt Bomer to play Christian Grey. islandkel78 1 year I think Henry Cavill should play Christian Grey and if Charlotte Sullivan dyed her hair back to her natural dark color she would be perfect as Anastasia Steel. Put anyone from twilight in any role on this movie is a huge buzz kill. Having a-list celebrities as the main characters just ruins the whole movie!!! Ana747 1 year Con't:....... Then again we have already seen Mr. Ian Somerhalder in a darker role sometimes it just better to bring a fresher face to this dark character CHIRISTAIN GREY. Matt boomer doesn't have that touch hard edgy look, maybe to pretty, SO MY VOTE ALSO GOES to Henry Cavill as Christian Grey he is beautiful with that manly hard edge look really would like to see him in this role, as for Ana possibly Isabel Lucas or Emilia Clarke, why these two, because that biting of the lip has to be really sexy....and just maybe these girls can pull it off. Mrs. Robinson…and the role goes to….Michelle Pfeiffer hands down. Ana747 1 year Don't know who could play Ana and be believable….maybe a new comer will have to pick up that tab, as for playing the dark enigmatic, mesmerizing, complex Christian Grey I AGREE with most a toss up between Matt Boomer and Ian Somerhalder., for Matt Boomer we have yet to see of his full potential. I guess…. I could say the same about Ian Somehalder, but the different is Ian Somerhalder outstanding performances on the Vampire Diaries( Watch the series before you disagree) as the character Damon Salvatore,” okay he's playing a vampire and their suppose to be dark , but how Ian somerhalder portray this character confirms it all. He can bring the dark character Christian grey to life on the big screen and be unbelievably believable. thesweetgeek 1 year I like all of your guys ideas for Christian; and I agree that Alexis Bledel would make an excellent Anastasia. However, I think Michael Fassbender would make a good Christian. He has that possessive appearance which is something Christian Grey is. Then again this is my opinion, but that's how I see Christian Grey. Amanda14766225 1 year Matt Bomer for Christian if we cant have Ian. :(. I just dont know about ana. I like Alexis Bledel. Joli-Ann14765518 1 year I believe Alex Pettyfer fits the standards of physique beauty of Christian Grey because of his serious and mysterious aura. For Anastasia Steele it would be best if kirsten stewart or amanda seyfried ^^ unizacepla 1 year Dwayne Johnson as Taylor..... mmm :))) Samantha14759675 1 year sorry possibly* Samantha14759675 1 year I can't poddibly think of any one man who could possibly be christain grey he just sounds too amazingly sexy for any human being alive to be. I still would love to see who they pick but i dont tjhink it could actually live up to the standards in the books of the image we already have christain grey. Audri-Anne14759603 1 year What about Robin Thicke? He's got the looks and charisma. Just a thought... Brooke14759461 1 year I think Matt Bomer would be great or even Alex Pettyfer would be a good choice for christian. Also i think Jessica stroup and Jenna Kendrick would be a good Anastatia. Jo-Cook14756250 1 year Somerhalder** Jo-Cook14756250 1 year Ian Somerhauler and Kristen Stewart Hands Down as Christian and Anasitasia. They both have that look that will truly convey to any audience Judi14754524 1 year The PERFECT actor, the ONLY actor who I should play Christian is TAYLOR KINNEY from Chicago Fire. He has the face, the body, the attitude, the elegance, and the vulnerability - he IS Christian. I read all 3 books and cannot even imagine anyone else in that role. Renee3465872 1 year Actress:Jane Levy (Suburgatory) would be the PERFECT Anatasia Steele. rockstar0596 1 year I think Anna Kendrick would play an amazing Anastasia Steele, and though I think ian somerhalder would play a fantastic Christian... It's looking like that's not going to happen. I think Henry cavill is too old and looks too old for the part since Christian is fairly young. I think Angelina Jolie would play an awesome Elena (mrs. Robinson) euh9 1 year I think that the most ideal combination is Henry Cavill for Christian Grey of course and Emilia Clarke for Anastasia Steele since they match perfectly with the book descriptions !!!! amandatonar 1 year Another man who isn't on this list and would be great for the role is Scott Elrod. Ashley2854209 1 year emma stone and ian somerholder...but i heard he was out of the running. emma is like, perfect. arg. ive been waiting a year now to find out whos who!!! itd be funny to see hugh laurie play annas boss. Ciela14744959 1 year OMG I totally agree with Redlayce. Christian should be played by MATT BOMMER He is the sexiest man on earth hahaha besides he fits amazingly with Christian Grey and Ana by Ana Kendrik or Victoria Justice and of course Blake Lively as Kate. I don´t like at all Alexis Bledel as Ana she just do not fit for the role. Anyway, that´s my opinion ;) Kimlee56 1 year Kimlee56. I think Robin Thicke should be considered to play the part of Christian Grey. He has the total package. Rugged, sexy look. Plus he can move. Aquarius14650473 1 year I think the best 1 # man to play the role of Christian gray is Ian somerhalder. the one to play as Anastasia is Alexis bledel. Redlayce 1 year Christian Grey = Matt Bomer, Anastasia = Anna Kendrick, Leila= Jessica Stroup, Kate Kavanagh = Blake Lively, Mia = Alexis Dziena I think Alexis Bledel is a good enough actress for other parts but I think this one would best fit somone else. ESPECIALLY Anna Kendrick, she makes any part have a good-girl yet sexy appeal. I feel like Alexis Bledel is too young looking. It'd make me SEVERELY uncomfortable to see her in a this type of S&M role. Cocahina 1 year I'd also add Lauren Graham for the part of Christian's adoptive mother and, if Alexis Bledel were to be cast as Ana, there should be good on-screen chemistry between the two, much like there is in the books. I think she would be a good match with Colin Firth or George Clooney. Cocahina 1 year I think, with the Fifty Shades trilogy being originally conceived as Twilight fanfic, it's imperative to move away from the actors who played main characters in the saga. Therefore, I would count Pattinson and Stewart out. My top picks would be Ian Somerhalder and Alexis Bledel to play Christian and Ana, respectively. Short of that, I think Henry Cavill and Ashley Greene (although Alice is a main character in the twilight books, Ashley Greene's character is not as front-and-center in the movies) would fill the roles successfully as well. I also see Paul Walker and Lucy Hale as potentially good fits. As for Kate, I could see (as a previous poster mentioned) someone like Mila Kunis taking on that role. While Mila's looks could qualify her to play Ana, I'm not sure she'd be believable in the sweet, girl-next-door role. As for Kate, however, I think a tall, voluptuous blonde would better fit the bill; someone to contrast the young, naive, dark-haired Ana. Kate seemed to fit the "traditional" idea of beauty in the books; "beauty" defined as what has been fashionable for the past half-century: tall, thin, leggy, busty, blonde-haired, and blue-eyed. With that in mind, I think actresses such as Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Isabel Lucas, and Julianne Hough would fit better as "Kate" than "Ana." That said, however, I believe Ashley Greene could take on either role. Her dark tresses and girl-next-door demeanor could make her a great Ana, while blond hair and the right wardrobe could easily launch her into "Kate's" role. I would also add Maggie Grace as a potential "Kate." Thinking of Mila Kunis as a cast member, however, I believe she could play Christian's younger sister - Mia - without a hitch; though, there are other actresses I would consider for the role as well, if I were the person making those decisions. Alexis Dziena proved in "Fool's Gold" that she's extremely capable of playing the young, rich girl role. Other choices for me would include: Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, Scarlett Johansson, Anna Kendrick, Amanda Seyfried, Elle Fanning, Hayden Panettiere, Phoebe Tonkin, Vanessa Hudgens, Victoria Justice, Vanessa Marano, Lucy Hale, and Maggie Grace. As far as Elena (whether her character is really introduced in the first movie or just talked about), I love Michelle Pfeiffer as a choice for that role. Ellen Barkin also seems to have the right look. My personal favorite choice (not on the list) is Amy Yasbeck. I think she could easily pull off an intelligent business owner who is able to rub elbows with the socialites while still portraying the acid in her veins necessary for her to play the bitch when required. Marcia Cross is another believable actress for this role, as are Meg Ryan, Rosanna Arquette, and Jennifer Jason Leigh. In my mind, Christian's adoptive father could be played by Colin Firth, George Clooney, Pierce Brosnan, Jeff Bridges, Dennis Quaid, or Tim Robbins. His adoptive mother: Christie Brinkley, Eileen Davidson, Donna Dixon, Sharon Stone, Nia Peeples, Kathy Ireland, Marg Helgenberger, Joan Severance, Tracey E. Bregman, Julianne Moore, Amy Yasbeck, Catherine Mary Stewart, or Heather Locklear. Personally, I would like to see a pairing of either George Clooney with Catherine Mary Stewart or Colin Firth with Christie Brinkley or Heather Locklear. Just my two cents...Although, with the length of the post, maybe it's more like 50 cents. ;) rncstaton 1 year I know everyone is wanting to cast their favorites for the characters, but while reading the books, I am realizing that that is not possible if this movie is going to be a huge success. When casting all I can think about is the characters that I thought I wanted to play the parts, but am realizing as I start thinking of characteristics and personalities that are pros and cons of each character.......I urge everyone to try to think beyond just the looks. Think about the inflection on voice, eyes, body style, etc...... 1278368 1 year I love Kristen Stewart, but not this character! Robert Paterson would be a terrible choice either. DannielleDahl 1 year Has anyone thought about Gabriel Macht for Christian, the only thing that needs changing is the eye color and that's easily achieved. engmajrev 1 year 50 Shades of Grey is a horrible book and this is why http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlyVLLq4G4U Moneybags505 1 year Perfect cast right here: Matt bomber as Christian, Alexis bledel as Ana, Paul walker as Elliot, and Blake lively as Kate!! glendayakel 1 year whatever you do MIla or Kristin can not be ana they will DESTROY the BOOKS!!!! and the ACTOR HAS TO BE AN AMERICAN MALE, I think one of the characters from Supernatural would be great are they American? lol But I do like Alexis Bledel as Ana GG25 1 year I think Ryan Reynalds would be good Christian and Mila or even Alexis Bledel would both be a great Ana. lab316 1 year I think Channing Tatum and Jessica Stroup would make great Christian and Ana!

YUUUUKKKKK! TangieWhigham 1 year I think Christian Greay should be played by none other than Bradley Cooper. All while I was reading the book he was only one I was picturing. erika089 1 year i think they need to be new. maybe not totally unknown but someone who doenst have that huge movie they are known for yet. and DEFINATELY not Robert Pattinson or Kristen Stewart, they have twilight (and i like twilight), but this needs to be different/new. dont just throw anybody into these roles, everyone is going to be looking to these movies. i am actually quite excited about them, just hope they pick the right actors. Emma14648755 1 year It has to be TYLER HOECHLIN playing christian he's simply amazing and for anastasia it would have to be ALEXIS BLEDEL CountryGirl29 1 year To play Christian...My 1st pick would have been Casper Van Dien but Mr Grey is only 27 so....MY 1st pick for Christian Grey is.....DREW FULLER, he is drop dead gorgeous & OMG those eyes! Matt Bomer is my 2nd pick & my 3rd Chris Hemsworth. To play Anastasia....My 1st pick would be Anna Kendrick. My second pick would be Emma Watson & my 3rd pick would be Alexis Bledel. To play Kate....maybe Mila Kunis. DoctorCrime 1 year The "real" side of Shades of Grey can be found in the book, "Killers, 'Cuffs & Kisses" on Amazon books. Be careful .. it IS a tad edgy ! MAMAMA9999 1 year I'd like to see Ryan Gosling/Nina, Ian/Reese witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe/Ema Watson. Yeah,terribly bad choice for too young too old for a couple and seem not matched,but if possible. And sorry its kind of devil for their real, but if if possible... Like kristen, but when get older I look forward to her sexy,yeah! ruteferreira 1 year Matt Bomer as Christian and Alexis Bledel as Anastasia, I think they are perfect but it's just my opinion jennamac 1 year HENRY CAVILL!! HENRY CAVILL!! And I think Nina Dobrev would make an awesome Ana. The whole time I was reading the book was picturing those two lol expert 1 year Love to see Alexandra Daddario with Van Sant. smurfette13 1 year Tom Welling and Emmy Rossum would also make a good pair! smurfette13 1 year Matt Bomer, alongside Emmy Rossum (from Day After Tomorrow and Beautiful Creatures) would be a great fit for Anastasia. I haven't really seen Emmy's name thrown out there, but I though that I would just put it out there, as I see her as a young beautiful and amazingly talented actress who is definitely underrated. Jayeno 1 year Matt Boomer he has the perfect eyes and height; can definitely see him smoldering towards an Anastasia who should be played by Emma Stone. Witch Mrs. Robinson aka Elena should be played by Susan Sarandon. Dying the hair won't be a problem, or a wig.....but that it the cast kiddies. Chase Crawford is an infant and not the most beautiful anything in any country. Although Michelle Pfeiffer might do well as Mrs. R. I would have to see the audition tapes to tell. JMO folks. JMO. don't freak. Sabrina14549847 1 year chase crawford should be christain grey Sabrina14549847 1 year Anastasia steele should be played by Alyson michalka Jaeneenchung 1 year Christian : Chase Crawford *** Ana: Elizabeth Olsen *** Elena: Diane Lane*** Kate2934514 1 year David Giuntoli (from Grimm TV Show) has potential as Christian.

Katie14313598 1 year I definitely agree with tc1021 if you haven't watched an episode of white collar, do now Matt Bomer is the best choice there is he is an amazing actor. Ashlee Greene would make a great Ana as she played the role of Alice in twilight really well tc1021 1 year Definitely Matt Bomer by a long shot. If you've never seen an episode of White Collar, then watch one and it'll convince you he would make suchhh a great Christian. Alexis Bledel would be perfect if it didn't seem like she has zero desire to be in it--there, totally vote for Lucy Hale. She's got great chemistry with older guys in Pretty Little Liars and does a great good girl but really a bad girl thing in her role. 101Cutegirl 1 year I'm with this 209% out of 100% that's how much I want this to happen!!! P.S. please no Alexis Blendel :) 101Cutegirl 1 year I think Allison Williams should be Ana. I think Alexander Skarsgard should be Christian!!!! LenaHarpByrd 1 year I vote for Matt Bomer as Christian and Ashley Greene as Ana!!!!!!!!

Noraky24 1 year When I read the books of fifty shades I saw Ryan Goslin as Christian Gray he would be oh so good in that movie and Michelle Trachtenberg woul be a perfect Ana llo5674 1 year Matt Bomer has "general good looks"???? You guys need to get your eyes checked. He is stunning!! naye1 1 year For me Ryan Gosling is Christian Grey & Alexis Bledel is Anastasia Steele!! This will be the movie of the year deidrabarnes 1 year The very first time I read the Fifty Shades books Alexander Skarsgard I the one that I could see playing Christian caroline25 1 year Matt Bomer as Christian and Lily Collins as Ana. huntressinred 1 year I would love to see Holliday Grainger as Ana (even though she's older than Ana is supposed to be). I would go for the extreme risk to put new face to Hollywood but that's just my "fantasy wish" so I would say Jakub Gierzal to play Christian (even though he is younger than Christian Grey) gosh I'm weird..lol ashi1 1 year When reading the books this is the cast list I see: Matt Boomer OR Jonathan Groff-Christian Jennifer Lawrence-Ana Robert Pattinson-Dr Flynn Charlise Theron-Mrs Robinson Pierce Brosnan-Carrick Annalynne McCord-Kate Kellan Lutz-Elliot Taylor Lautner-Jose Though looking at the suggestions above Emma Stone or Jessica Stroup could make good Ana's. I don't care that both guys I cast as Christian are gay. Does it really matter? NO. Matt Boomer, 2 words WHITE COLLAR or even MAGIC MIKE. And if some crazy person does write a musical for it, both can sing and dance. plumeria360 1 year I think Aaron Tveit would be a great Christian Grey, not sure yet on who I'd want to play Anastasia. Lilames1 1 year It's simple... Matt Bomer as Christian Grey and Alexis Bledel as Ana Steele! jayme5978 1 year Alexander Skarsgård christian , lucy hale as ana and reese w. as mrs robinson tland73 1 year I could really see Josh Duhamel as Christian, Ashley Greene as Ana, Michelle Pfeiffer as Mrs. Robinson & Evan Rachel Wood as Kate!!!! ohiosunshine 1 year Theo James, of the new Golden Boy series, would be my choice for Christian....not sure yet who I would pick for the role of Anastasia..... Herbster 1 year These guys could be in the village people Boomer6175 1 year Henry Cavill - Is Hot. Great Choice Astrid8086320 1 year Henry Cavill. Point he is Christian Grey! cgantenbein99 1 year Has anyone looked at Wes Brown?? He's so hot!!! Not attached to any Tv or movie role yet. He is on the new show Deception but winces its a new series I don't think he has been typed cast. He has the chiseled face like Ian but is still in his 20's. He should be considered for the role as Christian. Kayla8085303 1 year Honestly I think Matthew Bomer is perfect for the role of Christian Grey. He has the entire package: the hair, the eyes, everything. And I really think Alexis Bledel would do an amazing job playing Anastasia. These two people are just who I picture when reading their descriptions in the book. Boomer6175 1 year I agree. Singer oh land would be a great choice for Ana. Also, Nikki Reed would be good also. We also have Kate, I think Kate Hudson would be a good choice for this. I also agree on Henry Cavill as Christian but I still prefer Antonio Cupo for Christian. All the below are beautiful people. Maybe Michelle Pfeiffer, Meg Ryan, Nicole Kidman or Charlize Theron as Mrs Robinson Cutegurl1 1 year Singer oh land could be Ana she cute unworldly inacinte and could definetly play 22 21. By the way she 26. On the pictures if u search her she has blond hair but its naturally brown so she could dye it back. I think Alexander skarsgard could play Christian he could definitely coy at 1 second sexy at the next and have a bad temper in a snap!!! I'm with this 100% ;) Maggiehart80 1 year Henry Cavill has to play Christian. He ticks all the boxes! Emilia Clarke or Felicity Jones as Ana. They have more than just the right look. Mrs. Robinson is supposed to be in her late 30s/early 40s...It's in the book, guys! Some of those ladies are too old. Charlize Theron would be perfect. Kate2934514 1 year As much as I like Matt Bomer, after several year he is too tied to his TV series. The only TV lead I could see would be Stephen Amell. Kate2934514 1 year Antonio Cupo for Christian, I would enjoy that. Jennifer Love Hewitt is WAY too old for Ana. Boomer6175 1 year Antonio Cupo as Christian Grey (so hot) Jennifer Love Hewitt as Ana Micheal Pfeiffer as Mrs Robinson Kate Hudson for Kate Boomer6175 1 year Antonio Cupo as Christian Grey.... Violetz777 1 year Lily Collins as Ana, & Ian Somerhalder as Christian Suzanne7489614 1 year Sorry i meant bomer. Ian cannot be cg! He will always be the face of vampire diaries, just like every guy from the gossip girl series and every actor room twilight. So it has to be an actor who is great and well known but not specifically known for a certain role. Same with the girl.... Lucey hale would be terrible as ana..hough may even be a good choice. I think Micheal Pfeiffer would make a good Mrs Robinson....she's older but sexy and she can play a really good b****...just saying Suzanne7489614 1 year Emma stone as ana and Chris Hemsworth or Matt Bommer PinkyB 1 year Ian = Christian is great,but Channing Tatum= Christian MIND BLOWING ... asn11 1 year picture of "ana" and "christian" http://fiftyshadesofgrey.wikia.com/wiki/File:Ana_and_christian_2.jpg asn11 1 year @Cutie pie24 look up rachel hurd-wood. i think she's the perfect ana Cutie-pie24 1 year Or drew fuller to be cristian harsha21 1 year Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel are the best for the role of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Even though he's a gay. He still suits for the role. =) clairbrodie 1 year No. She does not need to portray her fan fiction self. Cutie-pie353 1 year OMG we definitely NEED Amanda Seyfried and Garret Hedlund together!!!!! I'm with this 55% only because we also really need Alexander Skarsgard to be Christian!! Like he already has a sex dongon on true blood so he has some practice with being rough and nasty in private places but I'm just saying those are the three who you really really REALLY NEED to think about just sayin Kate2934514 1 year Scratch that. Was looking at someone else. No height problem with Theo James. Kate2934514 1 year Consider Theo James for Christian....although there is still the "too short" issue here. mariaqueiroz 1 year NO FUCKING WAY! We need Ian for Cristian and Jennifer Lawrence for Anastasia! TRUST ME, it would be epic asn11 1 year all you readers and writers should google drew fuller! PaulineR 1 year Samuel Witwer would be great as CG. JJ411 1 year Ian Somerhalder remains the only Christian Grey I can envision. None of the other actors mentioned for the role come close to all that Ian embodies as Mr. Grey. He has the stunning, unique beauty that is so Mr. Grey, right down to that signature smirk and burning gaze with his incredible eyes. And he's a wonderful actor capable of bringing out so many different sides of a character. Badpphoebe13 1 year Ana maybe Sarah Wayne Callies Badpphoebe13 1 year Christian- Ian somerhalder maybe went worth miller and ana should be Carey Mulligan. Firework666 1 year Ian Somerhalder should play Christian, Lucy Hale should play Ana, Kate Cattrel should play Mrs. Robinson, Blake Lively should play Katherine Kavanagh, And Chris Hemsworth or Kellan Luts as Elliot voteisland 1 year I would go with Matt Bomer or Ryan Reynolds for Christian and Emma Watson or Alexis Bledel for Anastasia...check out tons of other juicy fifty shades of grey polls http://www.voteisland.com/featured.html ...can't wait for the movie to come out some day :-) Heather3725962 1 year Matt Bomer & Alexis Bledel !!!!!! ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!! 100% Nikikirk 1 year Definalty wentworth miller for Christian grey all the way!!! Polish-princess 1 year most difficult would be who should play Christian...remember he is described as stunningly beautiful...not many in his age to choose from...Channing is homely and rather beefy, Ryan Reynolds has the hangdog face...while Ryan Gosling isn't quite a beauty he might be a possibility...think Crazy, Stupid Love without the stupid. I also think Hayden Christensen is pretty enough to play him. Ana is easy...Zooey Deschenel or Katy Perry...they look exactly like Ana is described. Most of the above mentioned are either too old or too sophisticated...don't forget she is 21 and very unsophisticated and unworldly. Tillymea 1 year I can´t imagen eny other to play Christian and Ana then to be Matt Bomer & Alexis Bledel !!!!!! Second choice Colin Egglesfield Second choice Lily Collins Notting can beat the books....love FSOG mitzysmiles 1 year I think ANA needs to be a complete unknown and CHRISTIAN should be someone like Christian Bale. Having a famous ANA would ruin it. An unknown like Henrietta Meire - she's awesome actress I've seen on stage a lot and in indie movies - I've seen her naive and cute and sultry and sexy. Dotty3712282 1 year Emma Watson yeah defo Dotty3712282 1 year Ian Somerhalder hmm mmm :) Ana Steel, very difficult/ haddadmarie 1 year Hi I forget to say that Rob Lowe would have been the perfect candidate if he was younger but anyways he has the same style as Ian Somerhalder, Mat Bomer, Henry Cavill, Chris Pine, and James Marsden so I really hope one of them will take the role!! And either Emma Stone or Zooey Deschanel as Ana!! haddadmarie 1 year Hi, I think Matt Bomer, Ian Somerhalder, and Chris Pine are perfect for the role and anyways they have the same style of face. Highlights can be added on Matt's or Ian's hair that's no problem. As for Ana, Emma Stone is perfeeeect for it coz she has this innocent, childish naive look with her blue eyes and complexion more than any of the actresses show in this article. And GUYS u forgot about ZOOEY DESCHANEL!!! she's also amazing for the role!!! I think it's only these two girls and please please don't choose Kristen Stewart and so nooooot Alexander Skarsgard!! Thank u! jlkelly 1 year Alexander Skaarsgard for sure. He can play coy one minute and burst out in anger the next. His manner of speaking is very firm and direct without being loud. His light hair could easily tint copper. Michelle Pfeiffer for Elena. There are too many possibilities to choose from for Ana. tesora79 1 year JUSTIN HARTLEY is CHRISTIAN!! He looks exactly like Christian-the golden god, so handsome girls blush, sex on a stick, arrogant, controlling, demanding. And the acting chops to play the drama of the role, Christian's personal anguish and pain, his broken side. This photo shoot of his is quintessential Christian rawrr..just google- 'justin hartley after dark' and click on the first official link to see the pics..and there is Christian! Tuaca80 1 year Alexis Bledel for Anna hands down..... You can't get more innocent than that!!!! I haven't found a Christian Grey yet..... I think he needs to be someone new that no one has an opinions about and beyond drop dead gorgeous!!!!! aniwa 1 year Selma Blair is a great possibility for Ana, so i think. Long hair , very young make up and boom we've got a sexy innocent submissive for christian to play with. rolanda38 1 year I really had a visual on who i thought would be the best christian grey and that was jason statham just the strong willed and ladies man , as for anna i would say katie holmes has the more innocent look .. asn11 1 year WES BENTLEY = CHRISTIAN GRAY!!! keiko878 1 year How bout..Mr Noah Bean from for Christian Grey role? chefchic 1 year I would like to see Justin Hartley and Felicity Jones as Christian and Ana. Shellbeth 1 year I think Ian Somerhalder has the look, but does he have the depth to be believable?Colin Egglesfield would be an edgier choice and would be an awesome Christian. Also Worth taking a look at is David Guintoli from Grimm. Forget about Ryan Gosling!!! He does not have the look or charisma of how the character is written, he is also too old. Ashley Greene and Emma Stone would be my first choices for Anastasia. Others to consider are: Lucy Hale, Jessica Stroup, Bella Heathcote and Julianne Hough. I think the choices for Mrs. Robinson have to be younger than Michelle Phiefer and Sharon Stone, early 50's or late 40's. Whoever is chosen, I hope they will make the character their own. ReapersGurl 1 year Ian Somerhalder shoud be Christian Grey, and Emma Watson should be Ana tl47 1 year I think Simon Baker from The Mentalist would be perfect for Christian Gray (surprised he wasn't mentioned) & Anne Hathaway for Anastaia (she wasn't mentioned either?). Either Angelina Jolie or Ellen Barkin for Mrs. Robinson megspangs 1 year Ryan Gosling would fit the perfect roll for Christian Grey. I'm rooting for him to get the role. Butterfly22 1 year Christian bale and rachael mcadams. The both suit perfectly for the role!!! MrsCraig12 1 year i believe that the cast should go as follows.. Ana- Ashley Greene Christian- Matt Bomer Kate- Julianne Hough Grace- Michelle Pfieffer Elliot- Robert Pattinson Mia- Michelle Trachtenberg Mrs. Robinson- Diane Lane and Mr. Grey- Henry Cavill. I just think that a book as powerful as Fifty Shades of Grey should be made in to a movie with young and old actor/actresses. the new and the old faces. nightNday 1 year DEFINITELY IAN SOMERHALDER FOR CHRISTIAN GREY AND ASHLEY GREENE FOR ANASTASIA!!! THEY ARE BOTH EXTREMELY GOOD LOOKING AND EXOTIC WHICH IS HOW THE CHARACTERS ARE DESCRIBED IN THE BOOK. KIM CATTRALL PERFECT FOR MRS ROBINSON. llsm 1 year how bout Henry Cavill and Kristin Kreuk???? brat682 1 year I think for Christian Grey, Ian Somerhalder would be great. As for Ana, Ashley Greene. Just my two cents, I think the two of them together would be really sexy. <3 kaylaiscoollikethat 1 year Christian- Alex Pettyfer. OR Ryan Gosling. OR Channing Tatum. Ana- Ashley Greene. TREY4860 1 year Ryan Gosling or Bradley Cooper for Christian. Christian must be a beautiful, hot, sexxy man. We all know Ryan and Bradley are beautiful sexxy men, so either would be perfect for the role. rlmabs2009 1 year I would love to see matt bomber play christain grey in fact he fits christain to a t everything about him matt is whom I pictured while reading the books well at least he's my version of christain and always will b he's the perfect canidate to me he fits the troubled and rich character he looks damn good n his suits and his sexy smile he's just so damned beautiful he s perfect for the roll I couldn't imagine anybody else but matt and as for anastasia steele as I read the books I pictured alex bledwell she's also a perfect canidate pale skin big blue eyes a brunette and she could play the part so well I believe as one who thinks y christain would choose her when he could hav anyone like she doesn't believe she's beautiful but she's a bright young women alex would b more than perfect as ana I can see matt bomber and alex bledwell as christain and ana they are the very perfect canidates I do hope they choose them ecspecially matt bomber Kate2934514 1 year I think I'd prefer Paul Wesley to Ian S. who I don't like at all. Only problem is I have yet to see Wesley smile---rather important in the course of Christian's transformation over time. rodi1987 1 year I think Paul Wesley of vampire Diaries should play Christian. He's hot. Annie2955146 1 year I would like to see James Scott as Christian. He plays Ej Dimera on Days of Our Lives. When he becomes hot and demanding he reminds me of Christian. I believe he would make a great Christian. If people would take a look at some of his heated moments with Sami Brady on youtube you would see what I do, that he is Christian! Be vocal if you agree. tite-helen 1 year Leighton Meester should play Anastasia! Fernandofernandez 1 year I think Ryan Gosling would be fine 4 Christian. I thin Alexis Bledel's name shouldn't even be mentioned (she can't portray Ana). I think the perfect actress for that role would be Leighton Meester. She is a very versatile actress, that has a lot of potentiall to be a worldwide superstar. Kimberley3608554 1 year I think Felicity Jones should be Ana, and Chris Hemsworth as Christian. And Shannon Tweed as Mrs. Robinson! Tabetha3606955 1 year I think Ryan Gosling and Lucy Hale would be perfect! julesrules1958 1 year Ian Somerhalder for Christian Grey gotstyles 1 year Christian Grey --> Justin Timberlake Anastasia Steele --> Leighton Meester aloeffler 1 year I think Lucy Hale would be best for the role! Ashley Greene, or Nina Dobrev would also be great!!!! Ker3594186 1 year I would love to see Ian Somerhalder as Christian and Emmy Rossum as Anastasia!!! whitemagnolia 1 year Ian Somerhalder and Emilia Clarke are the BEST choice whitemagnolia 1 year Ian Somerhalder for Christian and Emilia Clarke for Anastasia otherwise i won 't watch the movie!!!!! arum777 1 year I would definitely voted for Chace Crawford as Christian, he is the right person for Christian. He had a right age, face, hair, body and smile. Please google and find his naughty, calm and sexy pictures. You will see the real Christian Grey. In the other hand, I would voted for Alexis Bledel as Anastasia, Amanda Seyfried as Mia, Blake Lively as Kate, Ryan Reynolds as Elliot, Kelly Preston as Mrs. Robinson and Channing Tatum as Jose. Kate2934514 1 year I have been watching Vampire Diaries this season trying to envision Ian S. as Christian and I'm sorry, but there is nothing about him that says "Christian" to me. Better to get someone less attached to a singular role like Damon. Meili3587528 1 year Ian Somerhalder as Christian Grey and Lucy Hale as Ana Steele!!!!! Kate2934514 1 year Has anyone else experienced a change on this site? I'm not getting comments anymore and I used to get at least 4 a day. Kika84 1 year Anna Kendrick would be a great Ana. Not because of the name but that she is beautiful but innocent. She looks straight out of college and actually looks like she went to college...... tngreen11 1 year that guy in the picture looks way to old. I could see Chace Crawford or Matt Bomer as Christian. And for Ana, I would say Alexis Bledel! (she looks the perfect age and would be perfect). I could also see Ashley Greene or Shailene Woodley would be good too. Young, smart, and innocent looking. I love Mila but she has that "Im really experienced with men" look. Maybe even anna kendrick... As for Mrs. Robinson. Id say Julia Roberts or Michelle Pfeiffer! I hope they do make a movie. The story of these books were amazing. LovelyLadii 1 year I definitely think Felicity Jones for the role as Ana Steele. For sure Wentworth Miller,Matt Homer, or CHANNING TATUM as Grey. They are all hot, and have blue eyes perfect for the role as Christian Grey. Polish-princess 1 year I can picture Hayden Christensen and Zooey Deschanel/or Katy Perry as Christian and Ana. Zooey and Katy look exactly like Ana is described in the book. Christian needs to be a pretty boy and Hayden is beautiful.. Channing Tatum is not pretty enough...he and Ryan Reynolds both have that hang dog face look. cmiller3735 1 year so fifty shades of grey is my all time favorite book and I couldn't it down. But to see any of the twlight people as christian grey is just wrong and kristen stewart couldn't barely act in any of them. I think christian grey would be a great fit for Matt Bomer. Mrs. Robinson should be played by Kim Cattrall Katherine Kavanaugh should be played by Kaya Scodelario For Anastasia Steele it should be Lucy Hale- fresh face and can be seductive from her voice just seems like a great combo because she is young arivelix123 1 year Chace Crawford!!!!!!! is perfect the perfect age, look and height. The other guys are perfect for Elliot who is 7 years older. Remember Christian is 27 years old, not in his 30's.The book says he looks young. alisonamy 1 year Come on ladies Nicholas Cage should play Christan Grey he'd be perfect..... Sharon3564242 1 year Patrick J. Adams who plays Mike Ross in Suits, would be awesome as Christian Grey. marceyj22 1 year I think that its a tie between Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood Eric Northman) hmmm or The Greek God hmself Ryan Gosling. yummy guys. As for Ana I think Ashley Greene. Ms Robertson should be Kristtin Bauer ( True Blood PamDe Beaufort) Brandy3554912 1 year CHANNING TATUM!! for Mr. Gray soooo Sexy I so can see him doing this... Ana Hathaway as Ana,,,,,,Laura Prepon as Kate,,,,,,,,,,selena gomez as Mia,,,,,,,Keegan Allen as Elliot,,,,,,,,,,Angelina Jolie as the lila,,,,,,,Kim Kardashian as Mrs Robinson,,,,,, amysue00098 1 year i believe that if a well know star was to play any of these role that all i would do is compare them to thier other movie roles. i think that unknown actors should be cast. either way i can not wait to see the movie Daisies4me 1 year Why has Christian Bale not been mentioned to play Christian Grey? He's got that perfect look; strong masculine traits, gorgeous, & wears a suit in such a sexy way! Sharon Stone is the perfect Mrs. Robinson. Ana...I'm not sure yet. Linda2961500 1 year Matt Bomer, first choice, Stephen Amell, second choice. ksuratt 1 year I feel like Adrian Grenier from Entourage would be awesome...soooo sexy, and those eyes!!! Yum!! JoycelinL 1 year Alison brie as Ana and Drew van Acker as Christian would be prefect! MariaLuz1980 1 year I think Channig Tatum would be the perfect Christian and Milla Kunis as Ana and Emma Watson as her roommate....I cant wait!!! Kate2934514 1 year I could definitely see Cam Gigandet as Christian. MYOPINION31 1 year I could totally see Cam Gigandet in the RED ROOM OF PAIN or in the SHOWER What Ev! szofi 1 year I think Ryan Gosling would be the perfect Christian Grey. He is handsome and mysterious like Christian. He is a very versatile actor, he can play any roles. Kristen Stewarts mien is the most correspondig for the role of Ana, but I think she is a talentless actress. Maybe Emile Clarke would be the best choice, because she seems simple and innocent like Ana. There isn't in this list the real Mrs. Robinson. I imagine so, that she looks like Charlie Theron!!. She is beutiful and I can belive from her that she is a dominant type. noelene 1 year Totally out of left field BUT Ricky Martin is definitely Christian - I know he's gay but hey he's gorgeous. Look at his latest video, he's fabulous. Come on girls you have to agree, the others are all wishy washy and Christian is mmm definitely not that. Still thinking about the Ana character Jessica3540602 1 year i was thinking of Christian Bale as Christian Grey?? He seems to have the Mr. Grey look. TKKING01 1 year Of the actors you have listed, I would have to go with Chris Hemsworth and Shilene Woodley. In my head I see Taylor Kinney and Jennifer Lawernce. Michelle Pfeifer or Kim Cattrall. I see a lot of Ryan Gosslings. He would be way down on my list. I was also suprised that Channing Tatum wasn't on the list. Slapres 1 year You all keep tossing up actors that are much older than Christian Grey, so I am going to add one more that I haven't seen mentioned, Christian Bale and while he to is too old, he still is my vision. Between name, description and continual references to my " Dark Knight", he is my idea of Christian Grey. Linda2961500 1 year @stepashka Mila Kunis could not blush if her life depended on it... has no one paid attention to the descriptions?? Linda2961500 1 year @Charles3534162 Yes, let's hope the casting director has enough sense NOT to cast Ryan Gosling because he is not even close to handsome, let alone drop dead gorgeous. As for Bethany Joy Lenz, what is it about "BLUE EYES" that people do not understand?? I believe there are enough blue-eyed actresses out there who could pull off this role quite easily, why pick a brown-eyed one and then have her wear contacts to change her eye color?? Charles3534162 1 year @Katiebee77 You're right! What do you think about Dakota Fanning though? I thought Haley from "One Tree Hill" would be great when she had lighter hair. I think someone who isn't as well known should be cast as Ana because it would help the submissive role. If Christian is dominating, then he must be a more experienced actor. Ryan Gosling showed us that he was in control on "All Good Things" and "Drive" (glorious soundtrack btw) and not to be messed with or he will crush your face! LOL but seriously...I would like to see both women audition for the role. If she is overly submissive or awkward in the worst ways, it would ruin the book; movies have a way of doing that today. Then again Dakota Fanning is well known. I just checked and Haley was producer for the Notebook Musical! Never knew that...okay nvm Dakota Fanning it is! Charles3534162 1 year Ryan Gosling would be perfect because of "All Good Things" so I am glad there is a casting director with some sense... even though the origins of this basis for this book began as an amalgamation of other ideas it sounds like it became its own. I digress. I think Bethany Joy Lenz, Haley from "One Tree Hill" would be the perfect Ana. stepashka 1 year Ryan Gosling and Mila Kunis would be my pick jessilita 1 year Check out this video for Matt Bomer as CG from GOLDFOR10.com : http://youtu.be/jrzz42MoAEQ Love the music: dirty dirty rich rich dirty dirty beautiful !!! I think he's really hot. ctgwickedgames 1 year I am still all for Alexander Skarsgard for my Christian I don't care what others might say, to me he handsome, graceful, and a body to die for. He could be my Dom anytime I hope that they make himt Christain I don't see anyone else doing the role justice just Alex, No one else has the right look or fits the part better then he does. I don't care that he is in his 30's most of the ones poeple are surggesting are in there 30's -40's also. I would love for him to be Christain and only him.I only want him. Paula3527158 1 year Ryan Gosling for Christian Grey, Emilia Clarke for Ana and Diane Lane for Elena :D Deborah2712154 1 year Although I can understand why people suggest an unknown actor should play Christian so that the audience won't associate him with a previous role, there is a problem with that. The actor needs to have proven acting skills. It would be a huge risk to cast an unknown actor. I think it would be better to have somebody who isnt a really big star like Ryan Gosling (too famous), isn't TOO UGLY (Skarsgard - please no) but does have some acting credentials and popularity. Suggestion: Ian Somerhalder. Alternative suggestion: little known British actor Emun Elliot. I can even understand why people are suggesting Kristen Stewart for Ana - ahe really has the right kind of look - but NO BABY NO!!!! Her sullen and one dimensional acting would be the death of the film and I for one would not go to see it. ctgwickedgames 1 year @Tricia3506193 That is your a opinion, we all have different types. Adele3526352 1 year I think some of the people that have been suggested shouldn't be in the running at all!!!! I think someone totally new should be brought in and not someone that we see all the time! Like Ryan Gosling, you associate him with 'The Notebook', Ian Somerhalder 'The Vampire Diaries' etc. Someone different would be nice for a change.......I'm thinking Jamie Dornan! He is beautiful, got the looks and the body. ctgwickedgames 1 year @Linda2961500 @ctgwickedgames @Kate2934514 Well I work with my husband, I do everything with him. He dosen'tt of his site. So you can see why I dream and fantasize about Alexander, and why I said what I said. I have Alexander picture on my phone as the screen saver for the last few years, I have his picture as the screen saver on my nook, I have it as the screen saver that changes with all differnet pictures of Alexander on my work and personal computer. So after 28 years I'm sure he knows, I like Alexander. Plus I think it should be aloud in any marriage that you can sleep with one actor, if you could. Alex of course would be mine.Plus most of the time when I write on here like now he is in the chair next to me.So I will keep writing and dreaming of my perfect man Alexander Skarsgard. love50shades 1 year First choice is Matt Bomer, he would be a natural except for the dark hair, but don't change that, it's part of what makes him, well, him. He has the look, attitude and presence to pull off all of Christian's 50 Shades of ******-**! A far second choice would be Ian Somerhalder, and I think Felicity Jones would be a great Ana. Ana is a virgin after all, not to many of those women could pull that look off... Jennifer3524137 1 year I really think Ryan Gosling would make an amazing Christian Grey jessilita 1 year I love Matt Bomer for Christian. Check out this youtube clip: http://youtu.be/jrzz42MoAEQ I imagined him while reading the books. Tricia3506193 1 year Channing Tatum... have you girls seen him. HELLO! Plus he was a stripper and could do the part. Tricia3506193 1 year @ctgwickedgames that guy is ugly! Suzie3135774 1 year @Linda2961500 hahahahahaha.........TRUE!!! Jennifer3522988 1 year waaaittt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ian somerhalder!!!!!freaking perfect!!!! omg :):) Jennifer3522988 1 year @Katiebee77 omg!! i agree when i picture ana thats pretty much how i pictured her lol at first i was thinking emma watson but screw that lol i like her better. Jennifer3522988 1 year hmmmm either chris hemsworth or ed westwisck should play christian grey...ed westick, in his role on gossip girl is already dominating and harsh. hes edgy and extremely sexy. he seems to have the mind set when it comes to business and sex as that of christian. i'm voting for ed westwick most deff. i would be dissapointed if he didn't although when i saw chris hemsworth he looks like what i imagined christian to look. but when i first started reading i couldnt help but imagine kim kardashians baby daddy playing the role of christian simply because of his structure and the dominance he radiates. but for the innocent ana? i think emma watson is a perfect candidate...for now. i have my doubts..is she able? or is she innocent enough? ctgwickedgames 1 year @JJ411 @Sheila3516294 I don't think so I think he is F**king hot.He could pull off this part with no problem. Have you seen pictures of him. he has many looks That why he is so perfect for Christain. Jennifer3522974 1 year Anna Kendrick would make an awesome Annastasia Steele. JJ411 1 year @ctgwickedgames @Sheila3516294 Alexander looks even older than his age. He looks like a man in his 40's. He is too old looking for CG. And his look is too harsh. He looks more like a Jack Hyde to me. Doreen3518392 1 year @ctgwickedgames What are you, his agent? Unless you are into men, how can you possibly pick out a perfect "Christian Grey"? Doreen3518392 1 year @ctgwickedgames @Kate2934514 What are you, his agent? Unless you are into men, how can you possibly pick out a perfect "Christian Grey"? ctgwickedgames 1 year @Kate2934514 I would leave my husband for Alexander, even for just one night ctgwickedgames 1 year @Kate2934514 Yes we different taste if we didn't life would be boring. I am one of those who would sell there souls for Alexander to be Christian. ctgwickedgames 1 year @Sheila3516294 He can still pull of the part. He is very sexy handsome, graceful, has the body , the long fingers, he is tall. He will do the role justice. Ian is good looking, but to short and has to dark of hair . ( I do like him) But he just not right for Christain. ANd as of the age. Some talk about Matt Bommer who is 35 so 36 does not matter. I think the role age needs to up a little anyway. We will see who they pick in casting. Suzie3135774 1 year @Kate2934514 LoL.......sooo true!! Suzie3135774 1 year So I just wanted to put this on here.....My fiance read a little blip from 50 shades of grey and he's heard me talk about. The ONE guy that popped into his head was Matt Bomer....LOL I was like who?? Looked up his picture and was like DAMN you are soooo right on....LoL ;) Sheila3516294 1 year @Kate2934514 I agree 100 percent -do not find him the least bit attractive!! Who is your Christian Grey? Suzie3135774 1 year @Dennis2994854 LoL....is he from days of our lives like Alison Sweeney?? She would do Mrs. Robinson very well!! He could play CG!! :) as long as he doesn't have an accent, if i'm thinking of the same guy from Days of our lives...LoL Katiebee77 1 year I just set down and got to thinking. What if Mackenzie Rosman from 7th Heaven was Anastasia Steele? She is all grown up and a good age for the part, she looks the part. Click the link below to see what I am talking about. She is definately snappy enough of an actress. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0743092/ Sheila3516294 1 year @ctgwickedgames Just can't see it. He is too old at 36 years. Ian Somerhalder is the only Christian-drop dead gorgeous! Kate2934514 1 year Isn't it amazing how different women can look at the same man and have TOTALLY different reactions to him? For instance, I realize that many of the folks here find Alexander Skarsgard to be sexy and beautiful while I find him to be unattractive. Guess this is part of the way we are made in order to continue the species. ctgwickedgames 1 year @Dennis2994854 Alexander Skarsgard can pull it off, he has everything need for this part, He already has had a red room of pain. He is a great actor with lots of range, He is so very sexy, has a great body. He has the look. Everything that is needed. Plus don't forget he does sex scenes alot, don't mind being naked. He wants the role, I hope he gets it. ctgwickedgames 1 year @Sheila3516294 Alexander is drop dead gorgeous to me and alot of other ladies. He plays n Trueblood, Battleship, saw dogs. Look at the pictures on line, I got some off of Alexander Skarsgard as Christian Grey. He fills the role very nicely. The only one I see. As for Ian is good looking but to short, and not right , Matt is not good enough looking at all, Plus for me I could not get trun on from a sex scene with him in it because he is gay. ( This has nothing to do with him as a person or an actor, and nothing against gay people, I have many freind that are gay) but I can not get trun on by that. We will all see who they pick when they do casting. Plus some of us older women want them to go a little older. ctgwickedgames 1 year @Sheila3516294 Alexa drop dead gorgeous to me and alot of other ladies. He plays n Trueblood, Battleship, saw dogs.

I have never seen him on TV-maybe I need to but the only actors thus far I can see playing Christian is Ian Somerhalder or maybe Matt Bomer. Doreen3518392 1 year I'd like to see Gabriel Macht play Christian. I have read all the books and I kept picturing Gabriel as Christian and Ashley Greene as Ana. I like Alexander Skarsgard, but I would have a hard time seeing him as anything but a vampire after all those years on True Blood! Gabriel just has that "look" about him that women are attracted to. He exudes sex and he doesn't even have to open his mouth, but when he does, it's all good! He takes my breath away! Doreen3518392 1 year I'd like to see Gabriel Macht play Christian.

Gabriel just that that "look" about him that women are attracted to. He exudes sex and he doesn't even have to open his mouth, but when he does, it's all good! He takes my breath away! ctgwickedgames 1 year Alexander Skarsgard is the perfect man, the only perfect hristaion Grey. Still after reading the books 12 times now, I sti only picture him. And when you see the pictures that they are putting up of him, he justeams look at me I'm Christain Grey. They just need to hand the role right over to him. He has all that is needed for Christain. He has the eyes, the looks, the body, the sex. he love to be naked andlikes doing sx scenes. they just need him no one else Mustafa3517505 1 year MATTHEW BOMER AND ALEXIS BLEDEL!!!! FlightlessBird516 1 year Of course they need to have the same level of chemistry as Rob and Kristen - It IS Rob and Kristen. Even Kristen said she could only read a few pages cause it was freaking her out. Yeah I would be pretty freaked out if I read a fictional character with all my mannerisms and matchs my my physical description on top of it. It's just so maddening to hear all this kstew hate yet love Ana - how is that possible? Right it's a lot like being racist. FlightlessBird516 1 year @Jennifer3516836 Thats so funny since Ana IS Krisen Stewart. The character and the relationship between her and fifty is modeled after a mixture of Bella and Kristen and her on screen off screen relationship with Edward/Robert - When Kristen Stewart was asked if she read the book she said "I tried, I had to stop after a couple pages because it freaked me out." Meaning she felt like she was reading about herself. Go ahead an re read some of it and just picture Kristen and Rob and you will not be able to deny it. Clumsy, average brunette, always biting her bottom lip, stubborn when it comes to her safety - I truly wish this would all just blow up and go away - none of it is original and if this being published and sent to Hollywood isn't violating copywrite laws then why bother having any? FlightlessBird516 1 year @Linda2961500 @Esvee Jane3513010 An who read/watched Twilight are capable of forming an opinion. All Fifty Shades is, all human Edward and Bella merged with the real life counter parts with LOTS of 2nd hand embarassing sex/porn descriptions with the original intenion being to satisfy the huge adult (mommy audience or 25+) fanbase of Twilight's sexual tension that built up for 3 books only o be left with a fade to black honeymoon. There is a reason Twilight Fanfiction is the elitest of fanfiction - the fans are passionate, loyal, and there is no YA rating keeping things family friendly. EL James was not the first twilight fanfic author to write Edward and Bella as humans (this is the case for 90% of the stories) She was not the first to make Edward older (Stephanie Meyers did, being he was 105) or CEO and she wasn't the first to have a BDSM Edward - the most popular fanfics had CEO rich older Edward who Bella worked for, or Edward the Dom with Bella the virgin sub, and the more smut the story had the more reviews. You could even tell if a chapter had NO sex it got less reviews then the chapter before that had sex. So EL James took pieces /themes from the popular fics, made sure there was LOTS of sex, then focused on the "I'm no good for you, you stay away from me" and "Your moods are kinda giving me whiplash"(IE 50 shades of grey - she never knows what shade he is...) that Stephanie Meyer created. She didn't even bother to change the fact that they were in Washington State, that "Christian" had copper hair that "ana" bite her bottom lip ALL the time and was clumsy and average. She is an oppurtunist who I don't believe came up with anything original enough to warrant millions of dollars or all this attention. But I guess sex sells and it's ok to like Twilight if it were less family friendly. Sam3517004 1 year I vote Chad Michael Murray and Ashley Greene. Yep this is how it should be!!!!! Jennifer3516836 1 year Alexander Skarsgard Should play Christian. I Vote for him HANDS DOWN.. Or shall i say? all over.. yummy!

Trang3513842 1 year How can anyone forget about Jensen ackles form supernatural. He would be the perfect Christian grey with his hot, mysterious look. sangogo 1 year Ryan Gosling is perfect for the role of Christian Grey in my opinion. He's got the seductive look to him. Ronda3489504 1 year @Linda2961500 E.L. James. Ronda3489504 1 year I'm still going with Alex Pettyfer for Christian.Ladies please google Alex,he's the right age beautiful eyes,right build,hair and,he is able to give a very strong look,great chin too.And he's british.Possibly Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss) for Ana.She's beautiful and young and strong like Ana. Ronda3489504 1 year @Deborah2712154 Deborah, agree except Ian S.What abut Alex Pettyfer and Jennifer Lawrence? Esvee-Jane3513010 1 year Emma Watson? uhmmm... i doubt that. she's really pretty. i think she's perfect, but not for Ana's role. I think she's way to beautiful to be teamed up to any guys in the movie. I see her as, "Dakota fanning" She's better off alone than to be in a love-team. Esvee-Jane3513010 1 year haven't read this book yet but I would. But base on the story and their characteristics... They really need a love team that has great chemistry. I agree that Rob and Kristen has it. but I'm not sure if they're appropriate for the role. As love team and sweethearts, YES! As far as i observe, Robert Pattinson is a really great actor. Watched all his films and all his "leading ladies" are perfect match for him. Even in "Little Ashes" I have no idea why I felt so touched with their "man-man" relationship. Deborah2712154 1 year I think Ashley Greene looks too old and sophisticated to play Ana. It needs somebody very young and innocent looking for this part. Ana is supposed to be a virgin! Not had a proper boyfriend! Can't do her hair, no dress sense! I think Emma Watson (minus the OTT make-up she sometimes wears - who does that to her?). Or else a total unknown. Ironically Chase Crawford looks too young and unworldly to play Christian. That needs somebody who looks older than Ana and has experienced a lot in their life....... Cue IAN SOMERHALDER!! The man is perfect for this part. I did have misgivings about his stature / petite frame but no longer. Currently on our screens as Damon, he definatley has the depth to play this complex character. Ashley3511449 1 year I think Dez Duron from The Voice would be a perfect christian! \ quest2 1 year ok been on utube... ian somerhalder and alexis bledel -- they won me over. quest2 1 year Chase would be great for christian but I think Ashley Greene -not sure the character is suppose to be 21? right?

Tricia3506193 1 year Don't pick ugly old people... really pick someone handsome and a women beautiful in her own way if you choose people that can't fit the part you will destroy the book for everyone. Please... I( love the books but some of these people really?? Matt Bomer and Ryan Gosling??? WTF are you guys picking her has to be gorgeous and make you fall to your knees not look at there face and turn your head. Kevin3501331 1 year the first person that came to mind for Christian Grey to me was also Chace Crawford carolyn77 1 year Come on people, there's no doubt, I'ts Chace Crawford and Ashley Greene all the way. Ashley is naturally a shoulder length delicate brunette - we can't have cookie cutter here or barbie, we have to have a beautiful in her own way. Doesn't have to be plain, look at her pictures and you can see how even without make-up she fits the bill. Chace, look at him in "What to Expect when you're Expecting" he does the sexy, reachable guy there and when you see his pictures from his other roles - he does the glowering, stern businessman with style...he's tall enough and What to Expect showed me he had the acting chops...Above all, whomever they cast have to have the chemistry to make it real, or it fails. That is everything, the sense of love and connection. Nagy-Jakus3375781 1 year @Renee3465872 @Kevin3501331 Finllay I met with you, who think the same!!! I started to hate this "gay men sayin"!!! It is just a role, and Matt is a beautiful man!!! I'm really sad, that women lost this wonderful man -but boys win him- I think he is as good actor, who can play, he wants ANA!!!! In White Collar also there was kissing scene, and I could believe! I can accept, if he won't be CTG, in the movie, but can't accept to close him out because of his sexuality!!!!

Michelle3500687 1 year I think that Alexander Skarsgard would make a great Christian. His part playing Eric in TruBlood has made him perfect for this part. Pamela3500609 1 year I think that ryan goslings, sex appeal and the fact that he is soooo wide in his acting range, he would make a good match for the part BUT Alexander Skarsgard OH Cristian Grey if only you were Alexander Skarsgard. Just look up some True Blood videos where he is interactive with Sookie, he is smoldering, and mysterious, as I read the book, I heard his voice the whole time, I imagines him, plus he is clean cut just like CG, and i think he just dreamy and perfect.

He's more of a mysterious and bad ass type, so no for him. :] I think Nina Dobrev fits the character of Ana Steele since she's clearly a brunette and she has that innocence roaming around her whole personality. And her eyes are expressive. One more thing, Jessie Pavelka is number one on my list in portraying Mr. Grey. I just knew about him now and one look, he got me captivated with those piercing eyes. Search his pictures guys you might vote for him too once you people get a look at him. Just sayin'. Haha. :) JMHO4 1 year @Renee3465872 I would be totally disappointed and actually NOT see the movie if they cast a gay man to play CG.

He is a big loss for women! I don't care that he is gay, it is just a role, and as CTG is an imagined character! I don't think that the actor will have sex with real passion, etc, I think this role choosin is getting neurotic! My favorite is Matt or Ryan, and I hate the idea if Ian will win the role, but I'll accept it, and I'll watch it, cause it is a great and exciting story, and a picture will remain in my mind also after the movie!

No to Robert. lol Kirsten3492497 1 year F to the NO to Robert P. and Kristen S. I would NOT watch the movie if they were in it Ann3492337 1 year From a marketing/money making stand point: It would be most profitable to have RPatz and KStew play these roles, you not only profit from he 50 shades fans but you can market to the millions of Twilight fans as well. As much as some believe that they shouldnt play in this, they are more than capable and these roles were based on their Twilight characters so who better to play them. They will never please everyone cause not 1 person is everyones Ideal dream man/ or women. Again, go where the money is! Dayna3491952 1 year i vote Ian somerhalder, dark eyes, wow of a bod Dayna3491952 1 year i went through the list twice, and cant see any of these people in the movie, ana, has to be young, and christian has to be gorgeous. and dark hair, hazel eyes Dayna3491952 1 year yea, dont think ryan is good, since christian grey has dark hair Dayna3491952 1 year i cannot see any of these women being good for the part of ana steele, or any of the men for Christian Grey, except maybe Ryan Gosling Michelle3175491 1 year Someone suggested RPat for CG.

Sungkwang3490979 1 year what about Amanda ?! http://youtu.be/_FZrBWYSTAU Maria3490774 1 year Okay comming from a young woman's perspective... I think the role should be given to Ian from the vampire diaries. There is no doubt in my mind that movie would sell out. However, the choices for the women aren't very good. I think the casting director should hire a young fresh faced actress that no one really knows about. A young lady who has that girl next door look. Putting any of these other young ladies in the film I think would ruin it because of previous roles they have played. I like the idea of Ryan Gossling as well, but to me he will always be the Notebook gentleman. Kate2934514 1 year @Linda3489655 I hope Kellan Lutz is being considered. He's aging very well. Linda3489655 1 year I like Kellan Lutz, Emmitt from Twilight. He has the most amazing smile ever!! He would be PERFECT!!!

Kate2934514 1 year Rick Malambri would make a good Christian.

Makes me forget whatever I was thinking or doing every time I look at him. Bella Heathcote is the image of Anastasia - her eyes and skin. Kim Catrall would be perfect as Elena. Lucy Hale as Mia. Ian Somerhalder as Elliot. Elizabeth Olsen as Kate. Garrett Hedlund as Ethan JJ411 1 year @Kelsie3472502 @Kate2934514 @Urška3117604 That's true. People who haven't seen him as Damon or have only watched an episode or two don't get the full picture that Ian already plays a lot of aspects that are similar to Christian. He's amazing at transitioning from dark to completely vunerable. Ian's work before Vampire Diaries shows his range as well. And the fact that he's done completely nude intense sex scenes in a pervious HBO series shows how comfortable he is in his own skin. He's an incredible romantic lead. Kelsie3472502 1 year @Kate2934514 @Urška3117604 But Damon is pretty much Christian Grey.....only Christian is a bit more intense. Which makes Ian perfect for the part. I mean look at his eyes and the smirk....ugh can't stress this enough Kelsie3472502 1 year Ian Somerhalder!!!! He has to play Christian Grey!! No one else would be perfect for the part. He is hot, sexy, and dark all in one. People dont understand how amazing he would be as Ana's 50 Shades.....Hands down...he is Christian Grey. Racheal3471126 1 year So I think that maybe Channing Tatum would be a perfect Christian Grey if he would be willing to do a movie like this. He is absolutely gorgeous and has an amazing body. Although I have looked at some of these other actors and they are not to bad looking either. One major thing is they need to speak good English without a major accent. And I would say ABSOLUTELY NO to Robert Pattinson I'm sorry he just doesn't do it for me never thought he was really that great looking. jo68 1 year GABRIEL GARKO IS CHRISTIAN jo68 1 year gabriel garko , mila kunis, charlize theron samanthajames 1 year Robert Pattinson will be perfect for Christian Grey, but if not why not ADAM LEVINE? I've read the trilogy and trust me, it touches my heart and it makes me wish I'd find someone like Christian Grey, and I know it's impossible like I feel myself tearing apart when all I can do is Imagine. Well this proves that EL James is a really great writer and if she writes other novels, I'd rush to the bookstore and buy it. :') samanthajames 1 year Robert Pattinson will be perfect <3 Lori3468146 1 year Please just start by casting Ian Somerhalder, then audition whomever you like for Ana's part until you find someone who has great chemistry with him and can act and take it from there! julesrules1958 1 year @Chanel3458077 God yes, the eyes. He has the best eyes in the world. julesrules1958 1 year @JJ411 @Kate2934514 @Urška3117604 I agree. If Ian gets the role he will SO become Christian that you will forget he id Damon on V.D. JJ411 1 year @Kate2934514 @Urška3117604 A lot of Fifty Shades fans had never even seen Ian until after they read the books. I'm one of them. I just started watching Vampire Diaries. Many thought of him as Christian before we ever saw him on Vampire Diaries. If he should get the role, once he's on that screen doing his thing, I very much doubt people are going to be thinking about him inTVD. He's the type of actor that totally becomes the character he's playing. This Stephen Amell is in no way shape or form CG beautiful to me. Kate2934514 1 year @Michelle3173100 I could see him (Liam Mcintyre) as Christian, but he's not one of my top three. I noticed there were several pictures of Stephen Amell in the "Images of Liam McIntyre." Michelle3173100 1 year Ok,ladies, I have a new suggestion for you;Liam Mcintyre, he plays Sparticus in the HBO series, I have seen him in that and he would be very good as Christian Grey. Tall,piercing eyes,and doesn't mind getting naked or rough. He is also very fit w/o being overly muscular. Chanel3458077 1 year Another reason Ian would be perfect look at his eyes just Google Ian somerhalder eyes. Chanel3458077 1 year @Pau3460024 Chase Crawford is beautiful but I don't think he looks old enough to me he looks like 23 which is basically Anastasia age. That is the only reason I wouldn't say him. Lia3460499 1 year @Linda2961500 I totally agree with you. She would be perfection. Renee3465872 1 year 1st choice: Matt Bomer and Amanda Seyfried, Mrs. Robinson(Ellen Barkin) 2nd choice: Matt Bomer and Emily Browning, Mrs. Robinson (Kim Cattrall) Kate2934514 1 year @Urška3117604 Believe me, we do not ALL agree about Ian S. I for one am SO hoping it is not him. He's way too connected to his Vampire Diaries character. There are a probably a half dozen actors I would rather see, beginning with Stephen Amell. I'd even prefer the too short Matt Bomer to Ian. Urška3117604 1 year Since we all agree on Ian for Christian someone should inform the producers and directors of the movie about that don't u think so? :) Vicki3464735 1 year Although Ian Somerhalder has the look and the skill for this role i do think Matt Bomer is absolute perfection for Christian Grey. I love Alexis Bledel for the role of Ana due to her innocent, girl next door appearance and style of acting or Jess Stroup mainly for her looks more so then her acting. I actually think that Julienne Hough would be good as Ana if she were to die her hair because in Rock of Ages she played an innocent and naive character that was eventually turned into the not so innocent. Also Bella Heathcote's performance in Dark Shadows was good and think she could play Ana or Elizabeth Olsen, possibly Felicity Jones. Kim Katrall is Mrs. Robinson in my mind already, this role has her written all over it. Mickey3464718 1 year Chris Pine and Anne Hathaway The names even fit. JJ411 1 year @julesrules1958 My thoughts exactly. I actually hope the budget is so that they don't hire huge mega stars. I think that would ruin it. Someone who's known but not the mainstream usual suspect for film would be the perfect way to go for Christian (Ian). And maybe a known actress for Mrs. Robinson as well... Mandi3464306 1 year @Lia3460499 I could live with that as long as Ian plays Christian!!! LOL julesrules1958 1 year @Linda2961500 @jo68 Sadly, you are right about the accent. Lia3460499 1 year @Mandi3464306 You're so right about Mrs. Robinson and Ian! But I see more Emilia Clarke for Ana and Ashley Greene for Kate! That would be awesome ^^ I think Felicity Jones would be good as Leila :D Mandi3464306 1 year MOST DEFINITELY IAN SOMERHALDER as Christian!!! The only one that could even hold a candle for 2nd pick is Chris Hemsworth. I'm really thinking if given a chance to finally take the lead, Ashley Greene would ROCK as Ana. The only other person that really fits the bill is Felicity Jones. And I have to add, Sharon Stone would make an excellent Mrs. Robinson! Kim-An-Bruce3463747 1 year CG - Chris Hemsworth ( Thor) A unknown for Ana julesrules1958 1 year Remember everyone, this film is going to have a budget. I read so many names being thrown around including mega stars like George Clooney. They will most likely have the money to hire a well known (but non mega star) for the role of CTG and one of the other roles. The rest of the cast will be made up of very talented but little known actors. julesrules1958 1 year @Sylvia Siu Wai3449471 So be it. He has been added to "the list". julesrules1958 1 year @JJ411 @bluemoon770 @Kate2934514 I agree. That could be a very good idea. A fresh face for Ana. Just as in the books everyone knows who Christian is, Ana is an "unknown" in the business world. She only becomes known because of her entanglement with CTG. julesrules1958 1 year @Linda2961500 @jo68 Yes, the accent thing has me concerned as well. Though look what they did with Hugh Laurie, Andrew Lincoln and Simon Baker. All have british accents and all speak perfect midwestern english. julesrules1958 1 year @Eusevia84 In a way, I agree with you. On the other hand is Universal going to pin its hopes on an unproven actor? Think about it, they have a run-a-way hit trilogy of books and high expectations from the public, are they REALLY going to take a chance on someone with very little acting experience or exposure? I think it will NOT be an "A" list actor like Ryan Gosling but someone known to the public albeit not as well know. JMHO, time will tell. Eusevia84 1 year I truly believe that the person who plays Christian Grey has to be an unknown. Someone who doesn't have any roles under his belt. Christian's character is portrayed as mysterious and seductive and an unknown would only add to that. With that being said if someone that is semi known would be considered, I think that Jessie Pavelka would be a wonderful candidate. rosalita715 1 year Matt Bomer is EXACTLY what I imagine Christian Grey looks like...perfect choice! julesrules1958 1 year @jo68 I just googled him and he is certainly eye candy. A bit old at 38 but he looks young enough to pull it off. jo68 1 year the wonderful italian actor gabriel garko is perfect for christian grey role!!!!! julesrules1958 1 year @JJ411 @Alina3443888 I so agree with you. I have said from the start that Ian is my #1 choice. He just has "the look" of Christian. I love his eyes and he has the dark intensity that is needed for the part. JJ411 1 year @Alina3443888 I would cringe if anyone but Ian played CG. ;) His smoldering distinct eyes and sexy, sly smirk are CG. Wonderful actor who can change emotions on a dime. Perfect for playing mercurial Christian...who is at times sly and cold. Pau3460024 1 year Leighton Meester! Fretzen-Dawn3461625 1 year Matt Lanter would be PERFECT for the role as Christian Grey! Alina3443888 1 year Lol. We are all so funny. We're all reading the books and we each, or groups of us, perceive CG and AS as someone different to portray them. We all have our own picture in mind of who's perfect and we keep disagreeing with eachother, and who knows if the powers at be are even looking at this site for ideas. They may even have the actors chosen already. It's so funny how much time we spend giving our opinion. I must get at least 15 emails/day with new posts about this. This book series is certainly a buzz!!! ... And I would cringe if Ian Somerhalder plays CG. He is eerie and sly and cold. lol, there I go again :))) so funny. ffigueroa687 1 year i think Christian Grey should be played by THE one and only IAN SOMMERHALDER and Anatasia Steel should be played by Ashley Greene...Awsome power couple.. julesrules1958 1 year @Gianna3456100 I agree that Ian would be perfect as CTG. I want Emilia Clark as Ana. Matt being gay doesn't help his cause though it is not a deal-breaker. They would have to put him (as well as any other candidates for the role of CTG) though a rigorous screeen test to see if he can convey the passion of Christian. If he at all "flinches" while kissing "Ana" he should not be cast. julesrules1958 1 year @AnnaMosity That would be a good combo though Ashley Green is not my #1 choice for Ana. julesrules1958 1 year @vi00letta Sorry, just not seeing that. julesrules1958 1 year @Chanel3458077 Ian is indeed perfect for the role. julesrules1958 1 year @Mary Megan3459865 I have always said he would make a great CTG. Watch him in the movie WAKE. It was filmed a few years ago before he reached his "peak" as the smoldering guy he is now. It shows several facets of Christian. He dances to Lone Star Fool, flashes his killer smile, gets angry and also has two great sex scenes. Ian can SO pull this role off. julesrules1958 1 year @AnnaMosity Not handsome at all. At least not in my middle aged eyes. JMHO julesrules1958 1 year @Lia3460499 YES. Someone like minded at last! Lia3460499 1 year Christian= Ian Somerhalder Anastasia= Emilia Clarke would be perfection. AnnaMosity 1 year Jensen Ackles? maybe Pau3460024 1 year it's just that,,, he doesnt have grey eyes... Pau3460024 1 year i am considering Chase Crawford... look ! he is also nice,,, good looking guy. i think would also qualify for the role! watcha think? Pau3460024 1 year however , i still liking Emilia Clarke and Alexis Bledel for Anastasia Steele.. i think either of them can do the role of Ana. Pau3460024 1 year i would like to comment... i will choose Leighton Meester for the role of Anastasia Steele.. Leighton is obviously prefect for the role.. innocent, not skinny looking, fine skin and i think can do nude.. for Christian Grey, it's either Ian Somerholder or Alexander Skarsgard. they are Damn Hottie. and perfectly fit to the role given! Deborah2712154 1 year I have been watching Ian Somerhalder recently as the latest Vampire Diaries season has just started here. I still think he would make a good Christian Grey, although I do think he comes accross as quite small, even - dare I say - petite, on screen. He would definately have to bulk up, as well as being given a shortish cast of people to act with him in the film! I'm sure that could be easily done though, and in all other respects I think he would be believable as Christian. Still liking Emma Watson for Ana. And finally.......I don't think there will ever be a Bared to You film, at least I hope not! I have just read the second one, Reflected in You. It is a total rip-off of Fifty Shades but with a horrible, unlikeable female lead. Next we will be having films of all crap like 30 days of Genevieve, 90 shades of lilac and whatever all the other rip-offs are called! Mary-Megan3459865 1 year @ashleybfield IAN..

Many of these actresses are too beautiful in my opinion Kate2934514 1 year @bluemoon770 EVERYONE, including Christian, is always telling Anastatia how pretty/beautiful she is right from the beginning. She just doesn't believe it. And it's a natural kind of beauty--not all made up. bluemoon770 1 year Colin Egglesfield and Bella Heathcote would be nice. Just not anyone from Twilight and such.. Also, Ana should not be too pretty. Looking forward for this movie and hoping it wont be a total cliche Kate2934514 1 year @Sylvia Siu Wai3449471 Stephen Amell is at the top of my list. Ian S. definitely is NOT although I think he'd be a good Gideon Cross. CHRISSYP1 1 year I agree with a lot of these comments. Stephen Amell is great and he would fit as Christian way better than most these dark haired men plus ooooweee his he hot!!! That body and smile is amazing Other than Him Chris Hemsworth is the only other man that I think fits the description. I also thought Lilly Collins at first too but now I think she would fit better as MIa. She looks very, very young. I agree ALexis B is very pretty and I know it doesnt say Ana is CURVY but when Christian is talking about her body and her breasts and ass how great it is, that means you have to have one Alexis is so thin she doesnt have either. It should be Stephen or Chris to play Christian thats for sure they are exactly how he is described. How about Harrison Ford for Carrick? Maybe he is too old but it could work He is very distinguished looking My first choice for Mrs R is still MIchelle Pfeiffer or Charlize Theron. Sylvia-Siu-Wai3449471 1 year Oh and can someone also please put Stephen Amell from Arrows up there on the list too. He is PERFECT for Christian grey, he has the looks, body and a dark side. Sylvia-Siu-Wai3449471 1 year I definitely vote for Ryan Gosling, he totally has that edge. I think Chris Hemsworth is a great choice too. But please not Emma stone, she's in everything...she is too over exposed already and not right, a little too plain and old. Ashley green doesnt have that innocence.... Sorry.. Sylvia-Siu-Wai3449471 1 year I definitely see LIly Collins as Anastasia. She just needs to do abit more eyebrow waxing. she's young, innocent, nerdy and beautiful... Tamara3449349 1 year How about Taylor Kitsch as Gideon Cross and Emily Browning as his Eva? Kelsey3449031 1 year Listen as Anastasia either Jessica stroup or Ashley Greene and for Christian , Ryan Gosling or Chris Hemsworth . Christian is always no matter what flawless even being " fifty shades of fucked up " and those two men could play that pat extremely well . And as for the ladies it no doubt that Jessica has the dark hair , blue eyes and the body while Ashley is beautiful all around and has the body and the " perfect breasts " . @E_L_James julesrules1958 1 year @CHRISSYP1 I agree. If they do not cast Ian as Christian and if they make a Barred to You movie Ian will be a great Gideon Cross. ocmara24 1 year @CHRISSYP1 You stated that: "Like I've said Alexis B is way to skinny and mousy to play Ana she needs to put on a few pounds to look good first." Ana is not described at a curvy girl Jennifer Lawrence. As mentioned in the book, Ana describes herself as being a "pale, brown-haired" woman with big blue eyes "too big for her face". She is shown to be rather insecure about being slim, pale, and scruffy. She is also described as being petite and slender. Regardless of that, Alexis Bledel is not way to skinny. Here she is at a Nylon Magazine event: http://www.justjared.com/photo-gallery/2722785/alexis-bledel-lucy-hale-nylon-tv-issue-launch-party-20/ She has the perfect look, her eyes, her skin tone, her ability to play innocence and awkwardness, while still coming across sexy and beautiful. She is Ana Steele. ctgwickedgames 1 year @Sheri3441662 Jonathan would be good for Flynn ctgwickedgames 1 year @Alicia3447436 Thank you, Now if only casting will agree. ctgwickedgames 1 year @Alicia3447436 Ye I agree he is the only one for thepictured him the first thing when they started talking about Christain After 10 times I still do.

CHRISSYP1 1 year Ian would be great as Gideon Cross CHRISSYP1 1 year Ok I havent commented in a while but come on its the same thing over and over except Aaron Jeffrey is a new comment but he is 42 Doesnt fit the part. Matt Bomer gay or not is soooo NOT gorgeous ick. But thats my opinion. Stephen Amell, now he is yummy! The only movies I've seen that has Alexander S in was Battleship and didnt think he fit the description at all. LIke I've said Alexis B is way to skinny and mousy to play Ana she needs to put on a few pounds to look good first. If you could put her face on a body like Jennifer Lawrence it would fit the part better. She has to be able to loose a significant amount of weight to be noticeable and have breasts and butt. All 3 Alexis does not have. Mary3447661 1 year AARON JEFFERY should be the first choice to play Grey ... swoon Alicia3447436 1 year @ctgwickedgames I totally agree with you! Alicia3447436 1 year At first I was thinking of Ian for Christian, but reading the book (I've just started it) I've realized that the one and only choice is Alexander Skarsgard, it fits the role much better. ctgwickedgames 1 year I only have one man in mind for Christian and that is Alexander Skarsgard. The best and only Choice. Alexander is tall, graceful, handsome sey, has a body that you an do laundry off of. he desn't mind being naked,he doesn't min sex scene. He is just perfect for all Fifty Shade. He also knows about the Red room of pain already. Plus he wants the part. sethannah 1 year REALLY have to check out Rachel Hendrix from "October Baby" for the role of Ana.

Angel3445033 1 year I think Ian S. should play Christan Grey. He has that breath taking look. He can play anger really well as well as being really sweet!! I love watching Vampire Diaries and everytime I watch the show and I see him portray his character I really feel he can pull off Christan Grey!! As for Ana, I believe the best choice for her will be Alexis B. She is very innocent. I am not to sure as to Alexis playing the sexual part of Ana but in all honesty, every roll she has played, has been an innocent one. Let her break out of her shell. Let us see how Alexis can do in a completely different roll. Her or Emma W. Alina3443888 1 year Christian Grey is a hard ass covering up an innocent scared little boy persona his look is best depicted as rough facial lines yet soft and kind eyes. The actors cannot be mainstream as this love and quality in both Grey and Ana have not been in the movies for a long time if ever. The quality in both actors would do the story/relationship justice if they didn't remind us of that bad movie they did last year. A fresh face, a fresh attitude, a new realm of relationship in the world. Of all the photos of the top 50 men Matt Bomer is the best match. Of all the 'unofficial' videos on YouTube, Matt came across as Christian best. He's not too clean cut, he can convince me that he's a big shot hiding so much anguish and need to love himself and be loved. And who cares if Matt is gay, he is a delicious man and damn gorgeous one too!!! In fact wasn't kinky sex invented by gay men. If anyone can pull off Christian Grey, it's Matt Bomer. Ian S. is too sly looking. He can play a bad guy. Christian is NOT that! As for Ana, please no Scarlet Johansson or Nina Dobrev or Mila Kunis or Emma Watson or Lucy Hale. Alexis Bledel perhaps, and even she has become too well known. Yes she does appear to have great chemistry with Matt, at least from what's been created in the 'unofficial' trailer. Aline3443748 1 year Henry Cavill will be the perfect Mr. Grey! *.* Liezel3443196 1 year I GO FOR JARED SMITH. HE IS THE PERFECT MR. GREY!!! AND KIM CATRALL AS MRS. ROBINSON....WHAT A COMBINATION.

She'd be great. Emily Browning & Ian Somerhalder!!! Shelly3435660 1 year @Ashley3431720 I love Damon Salvatore too Ashley :) and he wouldn't be him without the acting of Ian Somerhalder. He will make the puuuurrrrrrrfect Christian Grey! Shelly3435660 1 year @JJ411 @Ashley3431720 I agree Ian should play CTG. I think that Emmy Rossum could play Anastasia. If you watch Phantom of The Opera you'll understand. She just has that innocent look about her. And Ian has the perfect looks, eyes and acting for Christian. He is sooo domineering Shelly3435660 1 year I agree with you Naomi3431180. Ian Somerhalder is Christian Grey fro head to toe ;p Shelly3435660 1 year I Wanna See Ian Somerhalder as Christian Grey! He's got the looks, the eyes and his mood can change at the drop of a hat (As Seen In The Vampire Diaries) Just like Christian's! The actress for Ana has to be determined later on. She's gotta endure a lot in the movie (Red Room of Pain) I just hope to see Ian as the oh so alluring Mr. Christian Grey hehe Danielle3435143 1 year Matthew Bomer for Christian!! I don't think that they should even offer Robert Pattison or Kristen Stewart for the roles...they just finished makin 6 (includes both parts of the Twi-Saga) movies...they shouldn't be callin them! I hope not anyways.. Avron3427427 1 year @flowerpower3 yes for matt bomer!!! Avron3427427 1 year @Bekah3430973 the african american you are referring to is Claude Bastille, he's Christian's trainer. please read again the book. in book 1 or the bonus materials: Meet Fifty Shades (book 3). Sarah3427692 1 year @Bekah3430973 The African American you are talking about is a person who knocked on the door of Christians office because he works for him or with him. The black guy is Christian Greys employee he plays golf with. Duuuh! Eyes wide opened while you read ;) That's the key. Nagy-Jakus3375781 1 year @ocmara24 yes, she is!!!! She seems so innocent!!!

JJ411 1 year @Ashley3431720 I just want Ian as Christian. If that happens, the right Ana will fall into place, I believe. Ian will have amazing chemistry with any actress who plays opposite him. But yes, he and Emilla would be great together. Ashley3431720 1 year if you watch game of throws then you would know how amazing of an emilia clarke is, she changes throught the season and you dont even relize it till it hapens she is small and sweet and also powerful, her and ian would be amazing. i also like emma stone shes brave and cute at the same time Kate2934514 1 year @DeAnna3431470 Who is Matthew Bower. I can't find anything about him. Ashley3431720 1 year ian somerhalder should definatly be it! he has the acting skill to be christion and he has a dark misterious aura. alex is dark too but hes 40ish. just look up vampire diaries and watch an episode and you can see how good he is, he will nail it! Christine3431630 1 year my picks are Lily Collins and Chris Evans DeAnna3431470 1 year Excuse me, Matthew Bomer and Jessica. Misspelled his last name, sorry... DeAnna3431470 1 year Matthew Bower and Jessica Stroup Leisa3419195 1 year Noami, I only meant this for the other lady. Sorry. Leisa3419195 1 year @Naomi3431180 @Bekah3430973 Come on girls. Please read the paragraph carefully. Perhaps Mr. Grey insists on all of his employees being blonde. I'm wondering idly If that's legal, when the office door opens and a tall, elegantly dressed African American man with short dreds exits. I have definitely worn the wrong clothes. He turns and says through the door, "Golf this week, Grey?" If you continue to read you know that Grey is at his desk inside and the other gentleman is leaving. Sorry to be so picky, but they are describing another man visiting Grey. Kate2934514 1 year @Naomi3431180 @Bekah3430973 No, the black man was in Christian's office and walked out before Ana entered the office (p. 7) THEN, refer to page 514 in the 2nd book--among the people at Christian's birthday party "There's Mac from the boat, a tall, handsome African American--I remember seeing him in Christian's office the first time I met Christian." (Ana is speaking) !!!!! Naomi3431180 1 year @Bekah3430973 "He’s tall, dressed in a fine gray suit, white shirt, and black tie with unruly dark copper colored hair and intense, bright gray eyes that regard me shrewdly" this is describing Christian... Leisa3419195 1 year @Bekah3430973 well I don't think you read the page 7 correctly. " a tall, elegantly dressed, attractive African American man with short dreads exits". He states to Grey in the book " golf this week Grey". Don't mean to rain on your parade, but you are incorrect in your facts. Bekah3430973 1 year non of these guys will work for Christian because they are WHITE! you all need to reread the book on pg 7 in the first book it say when she walks into his office he was a tall AFRICAN AMERICAN and all these guys is not black. now i could see tyler perry, or Shemar Moore, or Nelsan Ellis play Christian grey Bekah3430973 1 year non of these guys will work for Christian because they are WHITE! you all need to reread the book on pg 7 in the first book it say when she walks into his office he was a tall AFRICAN AMERICAN and all these guys is not black. now i could see tyler perry, or Shemar Moore, or Nelsan Ellis flowerpower3 1 year IAN SOMERHALDER or MATT BOMER are CTG !!!!

Kristen shows no emotion ever and I refuse to have them ruin this great movie with their stupid selves. Ana is a brunette so why in the hell are you trying to find blondes to be Ana??

Ian is good at pulling off DARK. He is my #1 choice. titen 1 year colin egglesfield and michelle trachtenberg Slapres 1 year I know he's older at this point, but I see a young Christian Bale. Maybe it's the name, or the dark knight references. Alana3428273 1 year IAN SOMERHALDER!

Yes to both Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel!! :D Sarah3427692 1 year Mister Henry Cavill is more than a Christian Grey himself! He is the guy I see when I read 50 shades. Suzie3135774 1 year @Avron3427427 also wondering who they'll part as Mrs. Robinson....lol Michelle Pfeiffer would probably be a good choice!! Suzie3135774 1 year @Avron3427427 kate.....ppl say blake lively!?!? maybe if she can be pushy and dominant---->maybe Emma Stone could play her but she'd have to go blonde!! Mia....hmmm--->Aly Michalka, Dianna Agron, Kellan lutz could do ethan or elliot......Jose.....jesse metcalfe!! :) Avron3427427 1 year @Suzie3135774 i just hope they will be chosen for the lead roles. how about kate, mia, ethan, elliot and jose?

LoL Avron3427427 1 year Suzie3135774 i watched it. yes, she can be anastasia. they will make a good pair. Suzie3135774 1 year @Avron3427427 I like Alexis Bledel.......if you go to youtube and look up fan-made trailers of her and matt bomer...........Such A GOOD PAIR!!! Alexis3358168 1 year Alexander Skarsgard is Christian Grey he's mystery, intensity, and, of course, his sexiness. Kristina3427510 1 year I really think Alex Pettyfer from "Magic Mike" "the Kid" would be excellent as Christian Grey. And I think Lily Collins would be great for Ana Steele. :) Avron3427427 1 year @Suzie3135774 i hope he'll be chosen..anyway, i don't know about anastasia but i'm thinking of maybe emma watson, what do u think? Suzie3135774 1 year @Avron3427427 me too!! Avron3427427 1 year I think of Matt Bomer as Christian Grey while reading 50 shades trilogy. CHRISSYP1 1 year I always look up all these men and I still no matter what keep coming back to my first two picks, Chris Hemsworth and Stephen Amell. They both have the look of Christian pretty much the exact way he is described closer than anyone else. Suzie3135774 1 year @Shannon3427001 he has no hair...lol Shannon3427001 1 year totally think Wentworth Miller would be perfect for him. He is sexy, and his eyes are to die for. He could set you on fire with his eyes. emmagosling 1 year @Linda2961500 ...they make them look younger with stylists- like the 25 year olds who play teenagers in some movies/shows. He at least would have the maturity to play Christian. Just sayin' ...but i know what u mean - age should be in late 20's if they can find the right person Candice3425563 1 year i would have to say Julian McMahon, who previously played Christian Troy in Niptuck. I only picture him when i read 50 Shades. He played the sexy, wealthy Christian in Niptuck and he is gorgeous! http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0573037/ JJ411 1 year @julesrules1958 @Annette3416414 Any variation of the word perfect in describing Ian is perfectly ok. ;) Luanne3424677 1 year Ana's 50 Shades is Bradley Cooper... Kate2934514 1 year I had to chuckle. I found myself on a Yahoo page for the upcoming final Twilight movie and there were pictures of the stars. And there was Robert Pattinson sporting blondish/copperish hair and not looking at all like he usually does in photos. Also there was no "Images for robert pattinson" on the first google page. He wouldn't be trying to make himself a better candidate for Christian now, would he? LOL julesrules1958 1 year @Nina3399987 Yes, I thought the same thing too. It HAS to be Ian. julesrules1958 1 year @JJ411 @Annette3416414 I thought Ian was perfect BEFORE I read your post and now I think he is perfecter (if that is even a word). julesrules1958 1 year @Katie3300786 Not as CTG. Sorry, just not seeing it at all. julesrules1958 1 year @Linda2961500 @Georgia3419536 Only in movies, book and TV. But you already knew that, I'd wager. julesrules1958 1 year @Ashley3420471 I agree about Hayden as Ana but I am not loving Tom as CTG. JMHO julesrules1958 1 year @Kate2934514 Stephen is a very good choice indeed. I disagree about Ian only being seen as a badass vampire. I think he would be great as CTG and is MY #1 choice but after seeing Arrow Stephen is now in my top 3. julesrules1958 1 year @emmagosling Greg Vaughan is a good choice, though not my first one. Nina3399987 1 year @Katie3300786 He looks good but i dont think he is a christian grey AT ALL.sorry emmagosling 1 year otherwise my vote is for Greg Vaughan or Chris Evans...but others i can see in the movie are...Emily Browning as Anastasia Steele, Evan Rachel Wood as Kate, Dennis Quaid as Mr Grey, Julianna Moore as Mrs Grey, Mia Wasikowska as Mia Grey, Steven Strait as Jose, Asley Greene as Leila, and James Marsden as Elliot : ) ....just my opionion! emmagosling 1 year What about Ryan McPartlin (Devon or 'Captain Awesome' from Chuck)? Great looking and i'd love to see him in a serious role - i think he could pull it off! Kate2934514 1 year I know this is definitely a minority opinion on this board, at least recently, but I just don't like Ian S. for Christian. I even watched a couple of episodes of his show to see more of him. My first choice is Stephen Amell. He's believable as a young tycoon, he has a commanding presence and can shift from intense Master of His Universe to the playful and megawatt smiles. I see Ian and I see badass vampire. Ashley3420471 1 year I think Ana should be played by Hayden Panettiere beacuse she gives off that innocent look and Christain Grey should be played by Tom Welling he looks amazing and has the mysterious look and Kate should be played by Emma stone she gives off that in your face type of look I think Brad Pitt and Carmen Diaz would make a really good Mr and Mrs grey. Chad Micheal Murray would make a good Elliot and vanessa hudgens as mia JJ411 1 year @Annette3416414 I can't either. I've considered others and no one comes close to bringing all to the role that Ian could. He's a wonderful actor. And NO ONE has the Christian smirk and eyes like Ian does, it's amazing that Ian has all the distinct characteristics. He's even driven an Audi for years. He's passionate about green energy and philanthropy, has his own foundation with ISF. And owns businesses as Christian does. It's kind of mind blowing all the similarities. He's it! julesrules1958 1 year @Annette3416414 Either can I. He is simply the best choice. julesrules1958 1 year @Georgia3419536 I totally agree. He is so good at being the bad boy. julesrules1958 1 year @Anne Jenny3419616 Only Ian. He is the total package. julesrules1958 1 year @ashleybfield Ian, yes. ashleybfield 1 year Either IAN SOMERHALDER or JOE MANGANIELLO!! Anne-Jenny3419616 1 year IAN SOMERHALDER should be the Christian Grey!.. only him.. OK! <3 Ian.. :) Georgia3419536 1 year Ian Somerhalder would be an awesome Christian Grey, he's got the look really, plus he's also a sadistic vampire so he can definitely play the part of a tormented human Kate2934514 1 year @Mariah3419035 Garrett Hedlund is an interesting choice. He doesn't look like a lot of the other would-be Christians. I think that the way his looks will change between the pictures on the internet and the filming of the movie (plus makeup) will make him a decent Christian--different look, but good. Katie3300786 1 year @Yvonne3409385 i totally agree Katie3300786 1 year @Yvonne3409385 most deff Katie3300786 1 year i think Channing Tatum would make a great christian grey, hes yummy lol Leisa3419195 1 year Chris Hemsworth is definitely the one to play this part. I am on the second book and I can't put it down. Mariah3419035 1 year i NEED to suggest another actor for this role. GARRETT HEDLUND, please. http://www.last.fm/music/Garrett+Hedlund/+images/57025807 Suzie3135774 1 year @Linda2961500 Stepehen could pull i off too! :) Annette3416414 1 year Only Ian Somerhalder will do for Christian Grey!!! I cant see anyone better for the role!!! Gitte3416349 1 year Alexander Skarsgard is the best fit for Christian and Alexis Bledel for Ana, for sure.. They would be a perfect match Diane3414605 1 year @Kate2934514 @Linda2961500 @Seth3412742 I have never laughed so hard at that comment, obviously you have never read good books. I have a higher vocabulary than most people my age. I assure you, I wouldn't even touch those pieces of fire-starter with a twenty foot pole. sroopan 1 year This is why Chris Evans should be Christian Grey. http://youtu.be/7K2GAoBTuc4 Kate2934514 1 year @Linda2961500 @Seth3412742 That's funny, Linda. When I read Seth's post that's just what I thought--envy, envy, envy. (I doubt he was able to read the books since he obviously has such a limited vocabulary.) julesrules1958 1 year @Ellechloe08 Ian Somdrhalder for Christian Grey for sure. Seth3412742 1 year Are they seriously turning this piece of shit into a movie? We don't need GOOD actors getting shitty roles in shitty as fuck books about nothing but some stupid ass girl fucking a "perfect" boy :I It's fucking Twilight all over again DX When will they stop doing shit like this!? Ellechloe08 1 year Either Matt Bomer or Ian Somerhalder for Christian Grey, Alexis Bledel for Ana, Kim Cattral for Mrs.Robinson, julesrules1958 1 year @August3404957 Ian Somerhalder for Christian Grey. Not sure I like him paired with Nina due to the Vampire Diaries. sroopan 1 year Chris Evans in "Not Another Teen Movie" proves he pulls off the dark-haired look very nicely. He's got the acting chops, the body, the eyes, the hair, the Christian Grey demeanor. He's the whole package. sroopan 1 year CHRIS EVANS. it's a done deal. it must be him. Yvonne3409385 1 year I think the perfect person for Mrs. Robinson would be Nicole Kidman! She is the appropriate age, beautiful, and has that sweet composition but vicious suits her well. Christian Grey is nearly impossible to put a face to. But whom ever it is should be strong in character and yet a little awkward, not to mention absolutely breath taking. As for Ana I think I would have to go with Shailene Woodley. She is sweet and beautiful and has her innocence to match. Ashley Greene I think would be a wonderful Kate. She just screams beautiful and self confidence! SURFINGGAL 1 year Hello How about Hawaii Five O's Alex O'Loughlin IS IT! He is PERFECT FOR AS CHRISTIAN! Geez I'm excited thinking about it. AlexisStone887 1 year I still think that Alexander Skarsgard is best for Christian. He has that mean look and he isn't afraid of being naked infront of the camera. He can also be nice and sweet and just like Christian Grey, it's gonna be a shocker when he is sweet. He fits the bipolar type. He also looks hot in a suit. CHRISSYP1 1 year Ive been saying Chris Hemsworth from the start! He is everything that is describes Christian in every way. His smile, his body lauguage, his unbelieveable presence, his dominant persona... all of it! Christian is tall and beautiful, very fit and strong. Chris is who I picture every time I read these books. He does NOT have dark hair like a lot of these men that are being chosen. BUT.... like I said the other day I think he is going to be too busy with other movies to do it thats why my new #1 choice is Stephen Amell omg I watched his show again this week he is very yummy. But nobody compares to Chris H!! NOt even his brother who is a hottie too. Te3406877 1 year CHRIS HEMSWORTH! Te3406877 1 year OMG!!!! CHRIS HEMSWORTH! DO I NEED TO SPELL IT OUT! HE IS PERFECTTTTTTTT FOR THISSSS OMGG HE IS GORG! Tasha3406861 1 year Chris Hemsworth is the perfect Christian Grey hey has the look and the appeal. However Channing Tatum would be perfect too only if his wife played Ana though. ctgwickedgames 1 year I only have one man in mind for Christian and that is Alexander Skarsgard. The best and only Choice. Jen3391264 1 year I say Ian Soomerhlder forChrstian most deffinately.Would LOVE Anne Hatheway as ANA!!!!! CHRISSYP1 1 year ooo maybe Matt Dillon for Jack he plays a good asshole CHRISSYP1 1 year Linda, do you know where we can find that video of Stephen Amell, just on youtube?? He is now my #1 choice for Christian and Chris Hemsworth a very close 2nd and thats just because I think he is too busy for the role and Stephen has a better chance at getting cast. Ian is my 3rd choice, Alex Pettyfer for Ethan I think and Paul Walker for Elliot maybe. Lilly Collins for Mia, and Mila Kunis for Leila. That new actress that in Fun Size Victoria Justice may make a good Ana. Blake lively for Kate I guess would work. Michelle Pfeiffer for Mrs R and Diane Lane for Grace. Jason Statham for Taylor for sure! Jack is a hard one he has to be cute but not too good looking. Nikki3390661 1 year My choice is of course the gorgeous Ian Somerhaulder HMMMMM!!!!!! Kerri3388236 1 year I withdraw that last comment. Chris Hemsworth is my choice!!! Kerri3388236 1 year Armie Hammer...mabye?? Janelluuhh 1 year I like Matt Bomer as Christian Grey but he's a gay. So, i'll go with Ian. Ian as CG :)) JJ411 1 year @pdaniels78 @Linda2961500 Ian is 5' 10'', that is not short. A couple of inches under 6' is no big deal. So nitpicky. They make actors look taller onscreen all the time if need be .And he's quite buff not thin. Have you seen him lately? Any actor can workout to achieve extra muscle if that's the most important aspect of a character... But not any actor has those distinct eyes or the Christian smirk that he has natuarlly and just the overall aura of the character that he projects. Maranda3385009 1 year James Scott from Days of Our Lives is who I pictured as Christian Grey. He is tall, built, and handsome. And he is a good actor. pdaniels78 1 year @CHRISSYP1 CHRISSYP1, you are dead on. All I saw when watching Arrow the other night, was damn he is one FINE Christian Grey. His current role obviously prepares him for the TROUBLED side of CG. His character can play many different emotions with a flip of the switch. PERFECT CG. pdaniels78 1 year @CHRISSYP1 Same here. Matt may look the part, but it wouldn't work. pdaniels78 1 year @Linda2961500 I agree about him being too short. Christian needs to be at least 6' tall with a really good build. Christian was very active in the book. He can't look like a thin rock star. Kate2934514 1 year "Kelly Marcel was hired just last week, and given that she's already proven her "passionate commitment to emotion, humor and depth of character" as producer Michael De Luca put it..." Tracy3372811 1 year JENSEN ACKLES as Christian Grey HELL YEA ummm Lucy Hale or Ashley Greene as Ana. AND FOR SURE KIM CATTRALL as Mrs. Robinson!!!!! kimrod 1 year Diplo, he is a DJ who should be the CG. I think he has the looks and the body. mary72smith 1 year I think Kevin Zegers should be a top contender for the role of Christian Grey! I mean WOW. He is more beautiful to look at than most of the choices already named. He is the right age and has plenty of acting/film experience to take on the role. I can't believe no one has ever thought of him yet. I personally would pay an obscene amount of money to see him play Christian Grey. mudderof3 1 year @JJ411 @Linda2961500 I do think it was neat that he got involved and was willing to do that with his fans. Your always going to have fans on both sides of the political fence so I think instead of him leaning towards one if he would have said, it's so important to research what these candidates are saying and make sure you vote, he would have kept me in his camp. Not saying I will boycott the movie if he's cast, cuz we both know that nobody's doing that! lol On the subject of Chace Crawford, everyone is entitled to their opinion. Have you seen some of the suggestions here? No one stays in the age that CG actually was, people pic actors in their 40's and 50's!! Atleast Chace is the age and description. You should watch "What to Expect When Your Expecting", he was adorable. mudderof3 1 year @Linda2961500 @JJ411 @Michelle3175491 I follow him on twitter. He's seems like a sweet guy but then again he's an actor. lol CHRISSYP1 1 year I dont think he should even be a close contender. I agree with Michelle and think he is dorky looking. One thing Ive learned for sure is how different opinions are on sexy or attractive or hotness. I ( me personally) could never watch the movie if Matt was cast as Christian.ick ick! LOL I dont think he is in the catagory of " great actors" thats for sure. I dont think Im the only one who thinks that either. When he stars in a multi million dollar movie then i think he can be described as great. Paula3090142 1 year Matt Bomer is the only real candidate for CG. He's drop dead gorgeous, has style and perfect CEO material. A great actor he commands attention in any role he plays. He has the perfect persona for the CG role . I also like Henry C. Think he could pull it off also but stand 100% for Matt as leading roll. Fingers Xxxx CHRISSYP1 1 year I watched Arrow the other night boy oh boy Stephen Amell is hot so hot!! He definitely has the look body, eyes, smile all of it. He is yummy JJ411 1 year @mudderof3 @Linda2961500 @Michelle3175491 Oh, well. I enjoyed the livestream he did. It was nice watching with him in his living room. A little hard to concentrate on the debate though... lol julesrules1958 1 year Ian Somerhalder is the perfect Christian Grey. He just has "the look". Those smoldering eyes make me melt. mudderof3 1 year @JJ411 @Linda2961500 @Michelle3175491 Oh BTW I'd feel the same if he was RA RA Romney! lol mudderof3 1 year @JJ411 @Linda2961500 @Michelle3175491 He does the normal activist stuff on a regular basis which has never bothered me but last night his little twitter fingers were on fire during the debate. It's not a surprise to me he's an Obama supporter but he was a little snarky towards Romney. I personally don't want to hear the opinions of any actor, musician or athletle, stick to what your paid to do. There are too many people who will not look into the facts and will vote based on their favorite celeb. On Amell, I haven't seen too much of him but I like what I see! :) Kate2934514 1 year @Linda2961500 @mudderof3 YES, YES, YES. S. Amell is IT for me! JJ411 1 year @mudderof3 @Linda2961500 I don't think Ian has gotten all political. He's just doing what most who have a public voice are right now. Using it to encourage particularly young people how important it is to watch debates, vote and play a part in how the world is shaped. I find him to be a breath of fresh air for not being afraid to use his voice and state what he's passionate about. I understand it may not be everyones' cup of tea though Cheryle3379323 1 year Jessie Pavelka a new should play Christian no type casting JJ411 1 year @Linda2961500 @mudderof3 I have to agree. He looks like a boy not a man. Not an ounce of sensuality. Michelle3175491 1 year @Tanya3378476 um.....NO!!!!! Michelle3175491 1 year @mudderof3 @Linda2961500 what's Ian saying on twitter? Michelle3175491 1 year @AliasLoLeeTa I personally hate the idea of Bomer as Christian as I have stated many times on here. He looks like a serious dork on YouTube trailers. I'd go with scarsgard or Cavill or hemsworth before I'd envision him as Christian. No thank you!!! mudderof3 1 year @Linda2961500 We all have our preferences. I personally think everyone is picking guys way too old. And ever since Ian starting getting all political on twitter he's really turned me off but that's just me. (just wish they'd keep their opinions to themselves) Henry Cavill is another high on my list. Tanya3378476 1 year or paul walker or vin diesel Tanya3378476 1 year i would love to see channing tatum be christian grey, and katie holmes for ana AliasLoLeeTa 1 year Matt Bomer IS Christian Grey, hands down, end of story, thank you very much. Ian Somerhalder is too skeezy and elfin-looking. For Ana -- a relatively unknown actress here in the states: Kaya Scodelario! You're welcome, Fifty Shades casting agents. mudderof3 1 year I have a new favorite for CG.

Nagy-Jakus3375781 1 year And Alexis Bledel is a perfect Ana, and Kim Catrall is a perfect Mrs Robinson Nagy-Jakus3375781 1 year Matt Bomer perfect for Christian, or Ryan Gosling!!!! JJ411 1 year @Boctavia Sandra could play Carla, Ana's mom. julesrules1958 1 year @MissusKawasaki I love Christian Bale and he was great in American Psycho. They would have to make CTG older as C.B can not pass for 27/28. JMHO. I personally want an Somerhalder for the lead role of Christian. He just has the best "bedroom eyes" of any actor I know of. julesrules1958 1 year @Boctavia Seriously? Ana is 21 y/o. Sandra (fantastic actress that she is) is far too old to play Ana. Kate2934514 1 year OK. Here is yet another prospect for Christian---Jay Ryan, the star of the new series Beauty and the Beast on the CW on Thursday nights. Episodes can be watched online at http://www.cwtv.com/shows/beauty-and-the-beast/ Tracy3372811 1 year Oh And DEF Kim Cattrall would make the best Mrs. Robinson!!!! Tracy3372811 1 year PLEASE CONSIDER JENSEN ACKLES!!!!! He is OMG Hot!!!! He'd be a GREAT Mr. Grey AlexisStone887 1 year I really think Alexander Skarsgard should be Christian Grey. He totally fits the control-freak that Christian is. I would love it if Alexander would be Christian!!!! Boctavia 1 year Sandra Bullock for Anastasia Steele Boctavia 1 year @Ashley3358332 James Scott is a better choice for the part of Christian Grey!!! Boctavia 1 year @Janet3346753 James Scott that's all I'm saying!!!!! Boctavia 1 year I vote for James Scott, he would make the perfect Christian Grey and that accent, OMG!!!!!! Please James Scott!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MissusKawasaki 1 year But please, no annoying Twillight actors!!!!!....that would absolutely ruin the movie completely! MissusKawasaki 1 year Oh My (F) God....I just heard a rumour that they also have Christian Bale in mind for the role of Christian Grey (despite his age) if that is true, that would be awesome..... he can be sexy & arrogant at the same time!! (American Psycho) I would go over and over and over again to the cinema.....Jummie! :-P But Ian Somerhalder would be great as well! What do you think.....?? XX Shelby3363884 1 year Thank you Kate 2934514 for clearing that up for me. I'm so glad that it was just a bad rumor. Shelby3363884 1 year Ian Somerhalder all the way.

He is so dom. julesrules1958 1 year @Michelle3175491 @alexsgirl YES, Ian all the way. My #1 choice for Christian. Kate2934514 1 year "During a recent interview on Ryan Seacrest’s radio program, Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L.

(Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti producing). She also said (on the Katie Couric show): "I have three people who could play Christian and I think four who could play Ana, and I'm not going to tell you any of them." Samantha3368018 1 year Matt Bomer for Christian Grey! He has the perfect look. As for Ana, I think that they should go with an unknown actress. It would bring something different to the screen, much like this story! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELa8BnuQ5r0 Michelle3175491 1 year @alexsgirl I quite disagree. I don't see him as Christian at all. And definitely not Ryan Gossling...please... that is old news (someone else mentioned him as Christian). It's Ian S all the way for me!!!! He is the only that fits the profile in the books except he is not over 6ft tall as alot of people have commented. So what! he has everything else the books describe especially the eyes. alexsgirl 1 year Ashley Greene would also be an amazing Ana, and definitely Michelle Pfeiffer for Mrs. Robinson alexsgirl 1 year there is only one choice for Christian Grey.... Alexander Skarsgard!! Anyone whose seen him and read the books should know that. He's got the perfect look the perfect demeanor. He has the domineering in control attitude. Mmmmmm..... yummy! I heard someone mention Lucy Hale for Anastasia and once I heard that I think she would fit. She's beautiful and still innocent looking. Angelique3365696 1 year Pleeeeeeeaaaaaaase cast Ian Somerhalder for the part of Christian Grey. He is THE person for the role. JJ411 1 year @Shelby3363884 It's not true. If you follow the producers and E L James on Twitter, they are constantly saying they are no where near casting yet. They just hired the screenwriter, so the script has to be written then they have to get a director before they will cast. That being said, I think they already have their shortlist lined up... Alexis3358168 1 year Alexander skarsgard Is Christian Grey Shelby3363884 1 year OK i just read on a different site that they already picked the star for the part and it's Ryan Gosling? If that is true, What are you thinking? He just doesn't have the sex appeal that is meant for the part of Christian Grey. He's more likely to be a candidate for the part of his brother. Susan3363799 1 year ...and I wanna play Anastasia Susan3363799 1 year Hands down...or pants down... ryan gossling.

Those who seem to claim that he isn't a good actor are usually those who are fans of other actors they are campaigning for CG... Check out some clips on YouTube of his body of work. He's great on VD. Some don't seem to grasp that he's playing an irreverant vampire on that show and not a human. He has a lot of depth and range and can say more with just his eyes than some actors can say with a whole page of dialogue. julesrules1958 1 year @CHRISSYP1 I think he can pull it off. It is more of the persona of Christian that is important. He has the BEST eyes and he has a Dom personality. julesrules1958 1 year @Jenny3362238 YES, Ian is the epitome of Christian. I hope they pick him. He is who I pictured while I was reading the books. julesrules1958 1 year @Suzie3135774 That is SOOOOOOO Christian Grey. He is sexy, hot and dripping with sex. Go Ian. Jenny3362238 1 year PLEASE PLEASE pick Ian Somerholder as Fifty he is who I envision when I read the book. If anyone has ever watched vampire diaries he is a great actor, and so "DOM" and very very very SEXY! He would, I'm sure of it, WHIP AND TIE all women into this movie, guaranteed!!!!!!!! :) Kate2934514 1 year @CHRISSYP1 The more I look at other actors for the role of Christian the less I like Ian S.--especially after I watched him in Vampire Diaries. Sorry guys. Kate2934514 1 year @HLT0116 Thad Luckinbill is nice. Add him to the "possible" list. Kate2934514 1 year @Janet3346753 I'd put Stephen A. first and Cam G. second. On some site about what exercise/diet routine some actors did to get ready for roles Cam G. was described as "Chiseled, lean, and muscular but without bulk." Definitely Christian Grey material! CHRISSYP1 1 year Ian is hot too those eyes are fantastic I just keep hearing he isnt that great of an actor but IDK I havent ever seen him in anything CHRISSYP1 1 year Great list Janet!!! Love them all Cam was in Burlesque as well I remember him in that one and the Roomate yummy! Seen Snow White and the Huntsman this weekend Chris was great ooo the way he was all teary and distress and distraugt nice Would be able to pull of a great Christian. Charlize was great too I think she would make a good Mrs R other than MIchelle Pfeiffer. Angela3362197 1 year MOST DEFINITELY IAN SOMERHOLDER for Christian Grey! Take a look at those piercing sexy eyes, and as we already know he has the "DOM" attitude down already! Not to mention his killer bod! :) please please let him be cast! Janet3346753 1 year And seriously does anyone really want to see any of the Twilight stars nude? I agree, no Twilight stars. So sick of all of them. I don't even think any of them are that great of actors nor that good looking. ;)@Izaya3356201 Janet3346753 1 year NO TWILIGHT STARS Please....aren't we all sick of them by now (the main 3). After reading everyone's comments about Stephen Amell (by the way he was also in the HBO series Hung, Season 3, where he plays a male prostitute), I have put him on my list as well. This is my order for Christian Grey: 1. Cam Gigandet (The Roomate, Easy A, hot vampire in Twilight) 2. Chris Hemsworth (Thor, Avengers, Snow White and the Huntsman) 3. Stephen Amell (Arrow, Hung Season 3) All three have exactly what it takes! If you haven't seen them act, rent some of their movies and you'll see why. Nobody seems to know Cam Gigandet but he really is perfect for this role! JJ411 1 year @Michelle3175491 Ian's eyes are Christian's eyes. He has the most incredibly seductive, distinct eyes. None of the other actors mentioned have the look that Ian does. Some of the other actors are good looking to various degrees but their look is generic, like men you could just see out anywhere not CG material. Ian looks as if Mr. Grey came to life. It was never more apparent than when Katie Couric showed all the actors side by side when she announced on her show that Ian had won the poll as to who fans want to play Christian the day E L James was on her show. The others paled in comparison. I have been convinced since after I read the books many months go that Ian is the one to do complete justice to this role. And I love the interest he's expressed in it from early on. That's the kind of actor I'd like to see for this role, someone who has shown passion for it from the very beginning. Unlike others who seem to turn their nose up at the mention of the role or others who are just now saying they might be interested due to all the hype. julesrules1958 1 year @Ashley3358332 Yes to Ian. julesrules1958 1 year @HLT0116 They were both on Young and Restless. Very good together. HLT0116 1 year Look up Thad luckinbill for Christian and lyndsy fonseca. These two have acted together before and their on set chemistry is spectacular. Ashley3358332 1 year I have to say for Christian Grey, Ian Somerholder he just has that mysterious look to him and plus he is gorgeous! and I love him in the vampire diaries as well. I think either Natalie Portman or Anne Hathaway as Ana, because both are completely fine with being naughty and kinky and being nude! As for Kate, I definitely see Blake Lively as a good Kate. Alexis3358168 1 year I think Alexander Skarsgård would be a Perfect Christian Grey He's Tall, Mysterious & sexy Leanne3358029 1 year Hell No......Don't put Kristen Stewart in, she would ruin the whole movie.....and I would use Alex Pettyfer. Heather3357866 1 year @pdaniels78 Yuck. :( Ian Somerholder...he is gorgeous! Heather3357866 1 year Please please please do NOT cast Kristin Stewart for Ana! Ana is an innocent and Kristin Stewart just looks skanky and used up. Plus, she had her day in the sun... I think Emma Watson would rock the part of Ana! Heather3357866 1 year @Michelle3175491 You nailed it! He has my vote!!! Heather3357866 1 year I think that Ian Somerhalder would be a fantastic Christian and Emma Watson would make a great Ana; although she may be a bit young for this role.... Antoinette2820255 1 year the guy from Arrow would be really good for Christian Grey :D i could so picture him Izaya3356201 1 year Hmm~ i'm really thinking i would love to See Matt Bomer as Christian. With the brief description that the novel gives, I think he's the one that is really up to par with it. As of the Role of Ana, i think Emma Roberts would do a very nice job in it. She Fits well. though her eyes aren't exactly blue. (that's what contacts are for :D?) Also, Emma Stone would do a good job as well. Her role in one of her recent films (easy A) She shows a lot of good potential to be a fitting Character As Ana Steel. As for the twilight cast... well i'm not so sure about them. In own personal oppinion, i think they're too over used. And to me... they just don't fit the parts very well (even though it is a twilight-based- fanfic) I just can see those two /again/ playing the main role of some steamy lovers or S&M for that matter... Sticks and stones can break your bone and chains and whips should not be held by a sparkling hand... too no xD in-put please :> Kate2934514 1 year Michael Fassbender fans may enjoy a trailer from his movie SHAME: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYL11WhiC9Q&feature=related Personally, I think he looks too old for the Christian role. And something he has in common with Alexander Skarsgard--and this is purely my own aesthetics here--they both seem to have heads that are too big, too much forehead, mouth too big, face too long. OK, I'm picky this way. Sorry. julesrules1958 1 year @Michelle3175491 I agree. Ian has THE best eyes. So dreamy and sexy. I agree with the running his hands through his hair. I can SO see Ian doing that. Karen3355432 1 year All you have to do is look at Michael Fassbender's spread in the June 2012 issue of GQ to see why he should play that part. The man is pure sex. And let's not forget his amazing performance in "Shame" as well. Michelle3175491 1 year I only have one guy that remotely comes close to Christian grey as i perceived his description over and over in the books and that is Ian solmhalder. His eyes say it all for me which Ana mentions about a thousand times. Yeah his body and the sex but the EYES are what reach into her soul the most and what she speaks of most Out of all the actors mentioned he is the only one with REAL TRUE smoldering grey eyes. He also has the perfect hair to constantly run his hands thru as it flops down on his forehead which is also mentioned constantly in books trambow 1 year @Michelle3175491 didnt realize that thanks for the update Michelle3175491 1 year @trambow Fifty Shades probably should have went to HBO but that's out of the question now because Universal bought the rights, they will be writing a script soon and are planning a full blown Rated-R movie. Hollywood is pretty creative sometimes, I am sure they will find a way to make it work trambow 1 year @Suzie3135774 @Michelle3173100cavill is hot but can we imagine any of these guys whipping flogging and and slapping....;0/ trambow 1 year @Michelle3175491 @Michelle3173100 @trambow yeah but if he is up for the role and looks young for his age and still hot hot who cares.... how can anyone know his true age and how can anyone care as they r watching the movie....we're not talking a grey haired guy with wrinkles here.... julesrules1958 1 year @Kate2934514 I DVR'd it and have it saved to enjoy over and over. (until the next episode) julesrules1958 1 year @Linda2961500 Sounds like he's gay, huh? Another Matt Bomer situation? Either way I love the new show. Chiquita3352381 1 year Chris Hemsworth and Rachel Mcadams are my #1s Kate2934514 1 year @julesrules1958 You can catch the ARROW pilot for free at http://www.cwtv.com/cw-video/arrow/pilot/?play=757c9164-3c62-45b3-8c11-acb9659271a9 STEPHEN AMELL is #1 on my list! julesrules1958 1 year Did anyone see the pilot of ARROW? Stephen Amell is a very good candidate for Christian. I was very impressed with this guy. Ian Somerhalder is STILL my #1 choice but this new guy is now on my top 5 list. Michelle3175491 1 year @Michelle3173100 @trambow how can they do that if Ana is just out of college. It would be ridiculous to make Christian that much older. Keep going away from the ideals of the books and might as well call the movie something else Suzie3135774 1 year @trambow @Michelle3173100 this true...............Don't get me wrong I LOVE Joseph fiennes.........but we don't want christian to look 42 when he's 29.......Henry Cavill is actually 29 and starting to grow on me as possibly playing Christian! ;) Suzie3135774 1 year @trambow @Tracy3118164 yea I wasn't sure how that whole thing worked.........b/c I mean technically they could have turned it into a series and kept to the books....unlike true blood! trambow 1 year @Michelle3173100 yeah, they also mentioned that Christian was a lot more mature for his age in the book for everything he has gone through..... think older is good too because older is more mature and more comfortable with their body and sexuality usually.... they have more experience in acting... and I am biased to Joseph Fiennes because he has acted in several roles pertaining to hard core sex.... he was just in a movie a couple of years back as a divorced dad admitting to his transexual side .... this was just a couple of years ago at 39 and he is still hot hot.....it might be best to meet in the middle to go with a better and more mature actor to tolerate the role but not be the hottest 25 year old on the planet either... its all about the acting and the message not just the looks... trambow 1 year @Suzie3135774 yeah Henry cavill looks nice.... trambow 1 year @Tracy3118164 @Suzie3135774 hmmm I am not sure how the financial aspect of movie rights work... 5 million doesnt sound like a lot for HBO... arent they multi billion.... they havent signed on 5 million for movie rights ever before? and would it be 5 million? I will have to educate myself... look this stuff up Michelle3173100 1 year @trambow I totally agree with the age thing. yes, in the book Christian was late 20's,but, in real life and in the movies I think that an "older"actor should play the part. 42 is not old and I think that Joseph is really hot and probably up to the role. There are other actors also that are good actors who could do justice to this role and the ones I am thinking of are all mid 30's -mid 40's. The majority of women reading this series is 30's and up. I work in a book store, where I sell these books everyday. I see who is buying them and hear them say who they want and they agree with the "older"actor bit. ocmara24 1 year @Michelle3175491 @Linda2961500 Actually, there is no difference if a gay actor plays a straight role, or if a straight actor plays a gay role. They are both gender bending roles, it is called acting. It is your own opinion, but the facts are facts. I don't think Chris Hemsworth is Christian Grey, not one bit, but there are many out there that do believe he is perfect, I don't. Those are opinions, but the definition of acting is a fact. As long as someone is able to portray a role, they should be the one playing that part. If someone can bring the character to life why not give them a chance, I feel that he can be Christian, just like I think other actors similar to his look could also be Christian Grey. Kate2934514 1 year @Suzie3135774 Alexis B. is just too skinny. Suzie3135774 1 year @Tracy3118164 probably not but as for the content of the books that's where we'd be able to see the book come to life in film........the movie with universal is going to be a cookie-cutter and changed. SAD! ;( Tracy3118164 1 year @Suzie3135774 HBO would never have paid the five million for the movie rights.... CHRISSYP1 1 year I agree with wishing HBO would have picked this up, they would have gotten away with alot more of the sexual content and more story line as well. Suzie3135774 1 year oh also...........NOOOOOO TWILIGHT OR HUNGER GAME STARS..........THEY HAVE THEIR OWN FRANCHISE AND THIS MOVIE NEEDS TO PUT NEW FACES IN THE LIGHT!! :) Except MAYBE......HUGE MAYBE Ashley Greene!! ;) Suzie3135774 1 year this blog has soo many great opinions.............I enjoy reading everyones! :) I do agree that HBO should have picked it up b/c the movie even R-rated I doubt will be able to keep true to the book. It might keep true to the actual story b/w christian and ana but the sex scenes and intensity are what make the story whole. I could see them doing some scenes and not really focus on the nudity so much but focus on the acts that are being carried out. As for actors........I feel Ian S. or Matt B. maybe Hnery Cavill--->he's starting to grow on me and he's actually 29....LOL someone with that look dark hair blue-grey eyes. Cooper color can always be added! ;) For ana I still think Alexis B. would work wonders as Ana.........I'm hearing Mila K.....she could pull it off she had to do some freaky sh** in Black swan. In the end the author and the movie crew will decided!! I think one the cast these two characters the rest will fall into place. Hope y'all enjoy your weekend! :) trambow 1 year @CHRISSYP1 yeah you are right should would be a great leila. CHRISSYP1 1 year Mila cant play Kate???? Kate is a tall blond even if she isnt tall she is very blond. She would actually be a good Leila trambow 1 year @hkimmmmm I agree, twilight didnt make millions for its acting and quite frankly I dont think robert patterson is all the great looking... horrible actor I might add.... he is kind wierd looking and over rated...... it made millions for the story line and the romance and passion... trambow 1 year Ok lets get realistic...!!! this isnt a clean romance we are talking about here like Dear John, Notebook, or no strings attached, which any of these young actors you are all lusting over will do fine with (clean romance)... but if we really want the film to follow the book to the T.... ie... romance coupled with kinky F****kery.....none of these young lads could probably tolerate the role or I think are cut out for it.... if we want to settle for a PG-13 rated movie and be happy with that ....fine... but if we want it just like the book it will have to goto HBO or something similiar.... and I think it should be an actor/actress that didnt quite make it to the red carpet.... good hot actors.. the ones that are willing to do what it takes to make it to the top....lets all be surprised and not disappointed. like look at Game of thrones HBO series I might add.... definitely more than rated R..... an excellent well written series.. actors great! dont see alot of them on the red carpet.... and there is, excuse my french whipping, slapping, sucking, sexing, as dirty as it gets etc.. through out the entire series.... not all books are meant to goto the cinemas or TV..... maybe this isnt one of them... It could ruin it for us.... I am quite frankly happy with just the book... and by the way 42 isnt old... lots of actors still look mighty hot at 42.... still thibnk my joseph fiennes puts all these above average looking young lads to shame....ha! Michelle3173100 1 year @hkimmmmm NONONO to Ryan Gosling and I do like Joseph Gordan Levitt as an actor just not for this. It has to be someone who is drop dead gorgeous and neither one of them are. Also someone who could pull off the brooding and dominant Christian. Michelle3173100 1 year @Kate2934514 ok, tried that link and wouldn't go to it. it was on the fifty shades of grey trilogy fan page. that link is 50shadesofgreytrilogyfanpage.wordpress.com Michelle3173100 1 year @Kate2934514 at www.examiner.com/article/mila-kunis-negotiations-for-fifty-shades-of-grey-role-anastasia-steele. alrokicka 1 year @Michelle3173100 I have to say she is one of my favorite actresses and I never even thought of her for the position but I'd have to agree thinking she would be great! They would have to play down her looks for a little in the beginning and she would have to do some major acting to play the nieve role but I think she would be great as Ana. Kate2934514 1 year @Michelle3173100 Where did you read this (about Mila Kunis)? hkimmmmm 1 year PLEASE PLEASE do not use any of the Twilight or Hunger Games cast... This will be a MAJOR disappointment. I also think Charlize Theron should be Mrs.Robinson. and throw Chris Hemsworth in there too he's a hotty right next to Ryan G and Joseph G-L hkimmmmm 1 year Ryan Gosling or Joseph Gordon-Levitt HAS to be Christian Grey and Emma Watson as Anastasia. Mila Kunis is more exotic looking and won't look the part for Ana and plus she can play Kate if she wants and DEFINITELY NOT Robert P as Christian. He is forever in my mind as the vampire that shimmers in the sunlight and Kristen Stewart shouldn't even be a part of this conversation. [not sure if she was or not just feared she might be considered] CHRISSYP1 1 year I have to say Im a bit surprised to be honest. Maybe they are going with some one a bit older because of the sexual content or maybe she is one of the only ones comfortable with her body enough to show it??? Ya think??? The only thing is she doesnt have any breasts even she makes fun of how flat chested she is. I think she can definitley pull it off though. She is becoming a good actress! Michelle3173100 1 year Just read that Mila Kunis is in negotiations for role of Ana. At first I thought NO! After looking at some pics of her she does have the big eyes,full lips,and innocent look and she also has a body and is petite at 5'4. Any thoughts? Autumn3350646 1 year I will be so unhappy unless Mr. Christian Grey is Stephan Amell for Arrow, he would be my fantasy Mr. Grey!! CHRISSYP1 1 year no way Robert or Kristen,She is terrible! I havent seen Camilla Belle since 10,000 BC does she still look young enough to play a 21 yr old? Alexis B is too skinny Ana needs to have a body ... Alexis looks like she starving and needs to eat a meal once in a while. Still love Chris H too and always will but Stephen Amell could be Christian for sure. CHRISSYP1 1 year I agree with Stephen Amell!!!! I am now rooting for him all the way come on ladies google him and look at his images ooooooweee he is one hot hunk! He has pics on there with light hair, dark hair, facial hair and shaved clean and he is hot hot hot in all of them with beautiful eyes and a great body. Eonline was talking about what a good actor he was too.. Let get him some votes here. Take a look girls. pdaniels78 1 year I think Camilla Belle (Thanks to pphil123) and Stephen Amell. Those two would be hot!!!! Look at Imbd.com and look at her picture #10 from 10,000 B.C. with blue eyes. Deborah2712154 1 year Robert Pattinson / Kristen Stewart in Fifty Shades?? NONONONONONONONONONONONONONO Andrea2990468 1 year Check out Rob's new photoshoot: http://www.robstendreams.com/2012/10/new-rob-photoshoot.html#more NO ONE ELSE CAN BE CHRISTIAN GREY. PLEASE, OH PRETTY PLEASE, ROB! SAY YOU WILL PLAY THIS ROLE!!! (and get Kristen to play Annastasia. :D) Deborah2712154 1 year Ian Somerhalder for Christian and Emma Watson for Ana. My no 2 choices are Henry Cavill and Alexis Bledel. Joseph Fiennnes would have been good 10 years ago but let's face it, these people are supposed to be YOUNG!! And I have to agree with Michelle that Matt Bomer is not the right actor to play Christian. Yes OK it is acting but the fact that he is gay would definately detract from the enjoyment of the film for me. In most roles it wouldn't matter but in Fifty Shades the sexual chemistry between the characters is central to the entire story, and has to be believable. But chill though, its only entertainment. pphil123 1 year Camilla Belle anyone??? Kate2934514 1 year Check out JAY RYAN from the new series Beauty and the Beast also. The CW sure seems into handsome, torchered men. Devone3346336 1 year STEPHAN AMELL # 2 CHOICE Michelle3175491 1 year @Linda2961500 well you went into overdrive explaining your opinion. It's touchy area for me. I am addicted to these books and it took a long time to for me even put a face to Christian. It just wasn't Bomer especially since I found out he's homosexual. So many women don't seem to have problem with iit. Guess I don't get it and probably never will I would just rather see Ian or someone similar play him And your comparison about Cynthia Nixon and Neil p Harris. Um...they r not sex gods. They r secondary actors no really cares or thinks about. Christian Greys role is way out of their league. Picking the right man to play him is a much bigger deal. And just to clarify a straight actor playing a homosexual is way different than a homosexual actor playing a straight BDSM irrisistable pretty boy playboy turned hearts and flowers lover Kate2934514 1 year Check out STEPHEN AMELL in the CW's "Arrow" that premiered yesterday 10/10. He's more than ready to be Christian. Michelle3175491 1 year @Janet3346753 @ocmara24 Too pretty boy is exactly how Christian is described. Ian would be perfect Michelle3175491 1 year I could care less. A gay guy shouldn't be playing Christian!!!!! Kate2934514 1 year @Janet3346753 OOO...like that Cam Gigandet. Great coloring for a copper haired Christian. Right age, right height. Love the picture on IMDb! ocmara24 1 year I meant to spell Christian Grey, not Christina Grey, Lol! ocmara24 1 year (Merriam-Webster's Dictionary) "The art or practice of representing a character on a stage or before cameras... the art or profession of performing the role of a character in a play, movie, etc." Christina Grey is a fictional character, therefore anyone who can obviously pull off the role would be entitled to play him. For example, Matt Bomer is an incredibly attractive man with an intense look. He is a great actor, beautiful, and a male. Straight Actors playing gay roles: Sean Penn in "Milk" Heath Ledger "Brokeback Mountain" Jake Gyllenhaal "Brokeback Mountain" Tom Hanks "Philadelphia" Charlize Theron "Monster" (also a physical transformation) Gay actors playing straight roles: Cynthia Nixon "Sex in the City" Neil Patrick Harris "Harold and Kumar" and "How I Met Your Mother" (Madamenoire.com)"Of course there’s no cookie cutter profile of a hetero or homosexual, so celebs are often cast into a role regardless of their real-life orientation. After all, it is called acting." Janet3346753 1 year @LaVonna3346622 Yeah Sorry I have to disagree on this one. Reading the books I could not picture him as Christian. The right guy has to have the right mystery about him, this guy is just a bit blank. Janet3346753 1 year @Erica3341239 While I think he fits the look and I love him as an actor, I think the fact that's he's gay might have a hard time convincing a lot of people in this type of role. This is very intimate role between a man and a woman and I personally couldn't see him playing Christian convincingly. Janet3346753 1 year The only 2 options I see that would fit perfectly are CHRIS HEMSWORTH or CAM GIGANDET. They both fit the profile perfectly, look great in a suit and without a shirt, have that clean cut yet bad boy look, and have the sexy stare that's required by Christian Grey. None of the others compare, most are just to "nice" looking. Love all the other characters listed above but don't think they fit the role AT ALL. trambow 1 year @LaVonna3346622 maybe if he grew out his hair and died it copper.. then I am not sure he would look very good in copper... trambow 1 year yeah about joseph being 42... but its amazing what they can do with the camera... and he is a young 42.. maybe they can work with that....but yeah there are a lot of options... still he is my sexiest favorite.. trambow 1 year Devone like you said dont think the movie could touch the book..... usually any book is always better than the movie anyway.... but my thought is it shouldnt be a movie in the theatres because they probably wont be showing the flogging, the silver balls, and all the other toys being used on Ana in film... they probably wont even come close to showing all their sexual encounters... rated R or not... and then we will be disappointed,,, even though the story line offers more than just the sex.... I think it should be an HBO movie ..... they are more apt to air things like that or an HBO series... has there been talk of that? Kate2934514 1 year What we will NOT be seeing in the movie: http://www.adultdvdempire.com/trailers/rental/1620752/this-isnt-fifty-shades-of-grey-porn-movies.html --Trailer for Fifty Shades Of Grey: A XXX Adaptation Kate2934514 1 year @trambow Note: as much as I like Joseph Fiennes, he is 42 now. Shakespeare in Love was made in 1998 when Fiennes was 14-15 years younger and yeah, back then he would have been, IMO, a strong contender. Michelle3175491 1 year @LaVonna3346622 NO WAY!!! LaVonna3346622 1 year I STRONGLY THINK CHANNING TATUM SHOULD PLAY CHRISTIAN IN THIS MOVIE HE FITS THE PART EXACTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Devone3346336 1 year In the pictures above he is the last one at the bottom all the way to the right Devone3346336 1 year It has to be the guy from TROY he is built , sexy and not someone we see everyday . Not to count he has that very sexy look like he has a very big secret . As far as Ana IDK yet still taking that all in .. But there is no way the movie can touch the book dont ya think@@2 Michelle3175491 1 year Joseph Fiennes is a good looking guy, no doubt, but not drop dead gorgeous as Christian is described. He looks like he could be mercurial though. trambow 1 year @CHRISSYP1 yeah he was great in the movie shakes spear in love.... check that one out too... trambow 1 year ok you might be convinced that joseph fienes should be christian if you watch this utube video if you google : joseph fienes utube Insatiable..... wow he even grabs her chin like in the book.... trambow 1 year watch this and you might agree that joseph fienes should be christian www.utube.com/watch?v=yK8lZV3wfVl what are your thoughts? CHRISSYP1 1 year OOOO Just googled it and it was hot!!!!!!!!!! I never even heard of that movie I'll have to look it up trambow 1 year google joseph fienes killing me softly.... the movie itself was somewhat similar to parts of 50 shades..... he was shady and had lots of baggage as his role in the film.... he was very protective, exotic, and jealous in the film... he would play the role perfectly..... he is also a romantic if you watch the shakespear in love movie, I am convinced he should be the one.... and he is an experienced actor not someone fairly new in the field... trambow 1 year @Sandra3039197 @Melissa3340215 think Michelle T is the best idea yet for Ana...visually she seems to fit ana perfectly... trambow 1 year @Michelle3344998 great ideas! although diane lane seems to sweet for Mrs. R... not sure if she could pull that role off..... still like my joseph fienes idea as christian... he was in shakespear in love... great movie! and how about adam rodriiguez or mario lopez for jose....and I dont know about Ana,,, it will have to be an actress with a free spirit and adventurous and comfortable with her body to accomodate that role.. this might be hard to find... trambow 1 year I think the perfect actor for the 50 shades would be Joseph Fiens, Ralph Fienes brother..... Joseph has acted in kinky sexual movies before and did a great job it .... he is straight forward like Christian in the book, and he is hot hot..... I elect him.. perfect! and the rumor of chris Brown going as christian? What are they crazy? He isnt even fully caucasion..( not to sound racist) but he doesnt have gray eyes, and he has tatoos all over his body... how are they going to pull that one off in the movie..... bad idea.... check out Joseph Fienes in the movie Killing me softly....that should give you an idea, although not the greatest of his movies, it is very sexual... CHRISSYP1 1 year yes so did I until I was yelled at for having an opinion and stating well thats your opinion of course it is nobody said otherwise. Erica3341239 1 year @Michelle3344998 Melissa McCarthy is what i ment to say Erica3341239 1 year @Michelle3344998 i know who would be good at Ms Jones.. Melissa McCarthl. yes i think she would be good.chrissy p1 has some good ideas too. lol i wish we three could make that cast. it would be one good movie. :) Erica3341239 1 year @Michelle3344998 i agree with most of your selections. the only ones i dont see are my jones and grace. i see ms jones as someone thicker as she is a cook . and michelle pfeiffer. idk i just done see her in that role. other than that i think you made great selections. as my ana though i do see Alexis Bledel. i didnt think so at first but seeing her in all the trailors made me change my mind she is very innocent looking but cleans up nicely . anyhoo thats my opinions. im so glad you posted this it makes the movie clearer in my head. (visuals) :) CHRISSYP1 1 year Michelle, I really like all these actors you chose but not sure if they fit the parts Like Mrs R has to be blond, Lane isnt. I dont think Paul should be Taylor, I picture him as Elliot more and the only one I can picture as Taylor is Jason Statham. I think Alex Pettefer ( cant remember the spelling) would be good as Ethan. Maybe switch Diane Lane to Grace and Michelle Pfeiffer to Mrs R that would fit better I think. CHRISSYP1 1 year Yes I mentioned Stephen Amell last week I seen him in some commercials and looked him up He is seriously hot! They were gushing about him on some talk show about how good of an actor he was too. I have yet to see him in anything but when I googled him he did have some movies he was in. pdaniels78 1 year I think Alexis Bledel would be perfect for Ana. Michelle3344998 1 year I have read the entire series FOUR times. Think I am addicted. My choices would be: Christian: Ian Somerhalder Ana: Ashely Green Mrs. R: Diane Lane Elliott: Matt Bomer Kate: Blake Lively Grace: Michelle Pfeiffer Carrick: Richard Gere Mia: Ashley Benson Ethan: Chase Crawford Jack Hyde: Josh Duhamel Elizabeth: Emma Stone Taylor: Paul Walker Mrs. Jones: Kyra Sedgwick Jose: Jesse Metcalfe Can you imagine an all star cast??? pdaniels78 1 year Take a look at Stephen Amell from the new CW show, 'Arrow'. He has the intensity, the looks, age, his hair, eyes, ooh lala. He would be perfect. Check him out! CHRISSYP1 1 year Yes It is my opinion Linda and you have YOUR OPINION. I love how some of these comments being made are as if they are FACT lets face it every single thing said here is opinion and not one is more factual or important than the other I get it you love Matt ( like many others do) I dont think he can act and I have a right to say any darn thing I want its that simple. If he gets this role ok but its still my opinion and yours just like all these other women rooting for their favorite actors. SO lets get off our high horses and play nice, have an adult discussion and everything said is all opinion. There are many opinions out there on who can act who is good looking or not. I cant believe that everyone thinks the same people are attractive thats why the old saying goes in the eye of the beholder. I personally dont think he's that attractive either. I do watch White Collar but only once in a while and never thought he was all that. Ive never seen Ian act but think he has beautiful eyes and his interview with Seacrest was great! I think Paul Walker is a pretty good actor so far I think he has more skill we havent seen as do some of these other men mentioned. Chris H I think is hot beautiful body and he actually has done many other things than Thor, he has had other rolls and even in that he has had emotions that are believable when he cries or laughs its great to see. Lia-Bens 1 year My vote is for Matt. He has the perfect body to pull off Mr. Grey. http://fiftyshadesofgreyfanclub.com/ Michelle3173100 1 year @Linda2961500 @CHRISSYP1 Thank you for correcting the spelling of his name...was driving me crazy. You are right about the parts in Magic Mike also, he was just as memorable as the other supporting actors. Everyone has their opinion on who they want and the truth is that it will be quite the wait to find out anything about the roles being cast since I saw they just hired a person to write the screenplay. That has to be done 1st and then a director picked and then cast. babiescuties 1 year there are two Mexican actors that would make Ana and Cristian come to life... when they work together its like magic no lie!!! Please look them up and let me know what you think... There names are Silvia Navarro and Cristian De La Fuente... They would be PERFECT for the movie... I know its a long shot but it would be new and fresh ppl new faces... Please please look them up and watch there videos on youtube they are perfect!!! Thanks... kiwikiki 1 year I think these actors would make the movie come to life; Julianne Hough- Katherine, Josh Duhamel- Elliot, Armie Hammer - Jose', Bella Heathcote- Mia, Alex Pettyfer- Ethan, Ashley Greene- Ana, Chris Hemsworth- Christian, Ian Somerhalder- Jack. Sharleena3341950 1 year Blake Shelton Should so be christian grey!!!! Kate2934514 1 year For a look at some interesting British actors see http://www.imdb.com/list/KJWRJPwQ740/. So many Brits have acquired American accents, perhaps Christian in among them. disyri 1 year No Question..........Henry Cavill IS Christian Grey! http://www.themoviefiftyshadesofgrey.com/henry-cavill-moves-up-the-ranking/ Suleman3341463 1 year James Franco, Colin Firth will be good too, Benedict Cumberbatch if you want to add elite class touch Suleman3341463 1 year James Franco, Colin Firth will be good too Kate2934514 1 year @Sandra3039197 @Sharonda3339476 I disagree about Paul Walker. I can see him managing Christian's darker moments. One advantage he has is that his coloring would allow for Christian's coppery hair. So many of the contenders have very dark hair and coloring. xiloscente 1 year Adam Levine! He is gorgeous :) tall enough, little chest hair, sculpted muscles... gorgeous! Renee3341249 1 year Alex O'Loughlin definately for Christian i have been watching him and he would be perfect. hot body muscular ohhhhh my he exactly who i pictured as i read fifty shades Erica3341239 1 year Mat Boomer. I have to agree with some comments I seen earlier. I have never even heard of him till I researched this movie. I saw a video trailor on youtube (fanmade) with him and the girl from gilmore girls and couldnt believe how they made my imagination come to screen . They should deff be cast the parts. Mat Boomer is Christian . He is exactly what i seen in my mind. Sandra3039197 1 year @Krystal3336828 Michelle Trachtenberg check her out, OMG! she's perfect.

You have to look up Michelle Trachtenberg and let me know what you think of her as Ana. She played in the t.v show Mercy and her roll in that was the perfect Ana personality. Sandra3039197 1 year OMG! OMG! "MUST SEE" """"" LOOK UP PICTURES OF""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""" """""""""""" MICHELLE TRACHTENBERG """"""""""""""""""""" THEN WATCH THE 1ST EPISODE OF THE T.V SHOW " MERCY " IT'S NOT ON THE AIR BUT YOU CAN VIEW IT ONLINE....... SHE IS THE PERFECT ANA I KID YOU NOT. JUST HER PICTURES ALONE MAKE HER ANA BUT HER ACTING SHE'S THE ONE. REALLY CHECK IT OUT AND SEE IF YOU AGREE Nicole3340297 1 year i think lucy hale and ian somerhalder should play christian and ana in fifty shades of grey cause he has de looks and personality and a very good actor and she can a play ana cause just her look alone embodies de role. sweet and naive. Melissa3340215 1 year Okay so I so see Ryan Gosling as Christian Grey. I don't care if he doesn't have the dark hair or grey eyes, he can change those. I think he would play CG to perfection. I think he could pull off the intensity that CG gives off, plus he has the smoldering look down.....mmmmm. Not to mention he has the perfect body, in my opinion. As for Ana, I would have to go with Lily Collins. She has that wide eyed, innocent look that fits Ana to a tee. Mrs. Robinson would have to be Michelle Pfeiffer. Kate2934514 1 year @Michelle3173100 @Linda2961500 @Michelle3175491 Re: Alex O'loughlin. I used to enjoy him in Moonlight TV series. He broods well. But I think he's a bit old for Christian. Michelle3175491 1 year @Sharonda3339476Um.....he can't act! Not enough to pull off mercurial christian Grey. Sharonda3339476 1 year Paul walker and Emmy Rossum CHRISSYP1 1 year Ok lets not even try and compare Heath Ledgers acting to Matt Boomers gay or not Matt Boomer is not a good actor, not really anyhow. He can play a tv role ok but not a dramatic MOVIE roll. I dont even remember him standing out in Magic Mike and with all those hot men in that movie if he was a good actor he would have been memorable. I like his show its ok but he CANNOT pull off such and important leading actor roll like this! This has to potential to be a huge money maker and they arent going to chance it to a so so actor that may or may not be able to pull it off. They will do so much research and testing for this role it will probably not go to anyone we are even aware of. The only one thats even said anything about being a potential candidate is Ian and thats from his mouth not movie makers mouths. Lets be honest here you have great actors who can play any roll and you believe it and then just ok supporting actors that could easily be replaced and alot of these men mentioned are just the ok type. Looks or not the acting is the important part, there are alot of hot guys out there but can they act umm no. They got their job just by looking good. Its like saying Jennifer Aniston can act lol. Boomer is not the man for the part. Michelle3175491 1 year Everyone is entitled to their opinion. But to me Bomer is NOT christian and never in a million years would I have picked a gay actor to play him. It's not just that he is gay....I also don't think he looks like how Christian is described. And I'd rather a guy play him that actually has smoldering gray eyes not BIG blue eyes like Ana's with a pair of contacts. And yes his real life homosexuality bothers me for him to play Christian. GROSS!!! On so many levels. These men were thrown into the mix by the media to wrile us all up and I will be as shocked as Christian was when Ana told him she was a virgin......and pregnant if Bomer is picked. Spank-me 1 year @Linda2961500 Just because some of us do not want to see Bomer in THIS particular role because he is gay does not in any way make us/myself a homophobe nor narrow minded. I think that is a very presumptuous opinion on your part. I truly believe a straight man is the way to go for this particular film. In Brokeback Mountain Ledgers role was a man in a heterosexual marriage struggling with homosexual wants. Ledger really struggled playing the latter. In fact, most say he was never the same after that role. Need I say more. Michelle3175491 has every right to post her opinion as every one of us does, without being bullied as you have a habit of doing and I mean that as no disrespect to you either. I generally like what you have to bring to the forum. Michelle3173100 1 year @Linda2961500 @Michelle3175491 that is true. i don't care about him being gay, if he can play the part so be it. he is nice to look at and i have imagination so won't be thinking about him being gay. that being said i also saw a new guy mentioned and thought i would throw his name out there,,,alex o'loughlin Kate2934514 1 year @Linda2961500 @Michelle3175491 EXACTLY right, Linda2961500! Krystal3336828 1 year I think Henry Cavill and Felicity Jones should be Christian and Ana. Krystal3336828 1 year @Taylor3309328 - I agree with Henry Cavill!! He's so hot. But I disagree with Kristen Stewart being Anastasia. I think an unknown actress who's around the same age as her in the books should play her. Erica-Marie3336446 1 year Ashley Greene & Ian Somerhalder PLEASE :) :) Anne3336399 1 year Ashley Greene & Ian Somerhalder PLEASE :) :) Michelle3175491 1 year I know everyone is so gaga about Bomer. I don't care how tall or good looking he is the man is gayer than gay. He tongues and kisses and screws another MAN. No way in a million years could Hollywood pick him as lead roll to play hot sexy straight Christian grey. Can u honestly see him on red carpet arm in arm everywhere with his man in the limelight. This movie will be huge. What other huge movie did u ever see where a gay guy played this big of a lead role. I don't see it happening or at least hope it doesn't happen!!!!! Suzie3135774 1 year @Emily3334114 that's exactly what I thought!!! Emily3334114 1 year ALEXIS BLEDEL for ana! Emily3334114 1 year ELLEN BARKEN FOR MISSES ROBINSON DEFINATLEY!! maybe with slightly longer hair though, but the face suits. Emily3334114 1 year as much as i love Kaya Scolderado i think bella needs to have more red hair, i dunno just picture anna with fair skin and light red hair Emily3334114 1 year they need to cast people who arnt already HUGE stars, no chace crawford, no kirsten stewart, no robert pattinson, no ryan gosling, no emma stone and many more who are already in a load of films it needs to be a film full of fresh faces and in its own rights. Kate2934514 1 year @carolyn77 Chace Crawford has an interesting look--definite potential. He's young and I imagine he'll just improve with age which is good since it'll probably be a couple of years before they start shooting the movie. carolyn77 1 year Also, if you look at pictures of Ashley with long hair, you can see her pulling off the awkward, shy self deprecating Ana, while seeing what Christian sees in her (she has to be a person with many beautiful features but not typical, not full of herself and let's face it, Christian can have who he wants, Anyone he wants...she has to stand out to him in some way and Ashley has the eyes and the skin and delicate size. carolyn77 1 year Chris for Elliott, absolutely!!!! Never thought about that! OK, Chace Crawford for CHristian, Ashley Greene for Anastasia and Chris H for Elliott....It can't be any of these 35 year old actors they're tossing around...so many of them don't have the perfect looks and hard/edge combination - so many have a crooked feature or large nose or something that while it does not deter from their looks or charisma, is NOT Christian Grey. Pick wisely people! Emily3334114 1 year @CHRISSYP1 completely disagree, i have never heard of Matt Bommer before looking up this movie and as soon as i saw him i was like OMG THAT'S HOW I IMAGINED CHRISTIAN TO BE!!! he has it all, looks, sexy eyes, looks powerful, has amazing presence, he is in no way forgettable he is dreamy and would definatlly command the audience and more importantly me!! carolyn77 1 year Chace Crawford is Christin Grey - i love all the choices and they're very good actors, but Chace has that extremely perfect beauty and edgy masculinity we're looking for. Ryan Gosling may be a bit old and while extremely handsome and charismatic, not perfect enough for this part. I'm a Pattinson fan and yet I don't think Christian Grey is Rob - many are too old or not perfect enough...Matt Bomer maybe. Chace could be perfect with the right director. Christian is so crucial, as well as ana....I see only one Anastasia Ashley Greene, she is a star waiting for her day...she has the classic, delicate non-typical beauty of Anastasia, again perfect features, flawless skin and could carry off the "nearly no make-up" without being diminished. I disagree that Chace is Ethan, I think all should be good looking and striking but none as perfect or edgy as Christian. The director and dialogue are going to be crucial here, that director has to be totally sympatico with Christian/Chace and demand the heck out of him...I am not familiar with his work until what to expect when you're expecting, but I saw him and I knew he is just unknown enough to carry it off and just has that essence that is Christian (and the acting chops). He wears a suit like nobody's business but has the sweet loveable side we're looking for too... If they don't look at him and get pressured into a big name, they'll not do justice to what E.L. James has created. Spank-me 1 year I wish everyone would get on with the Matt Bomer and Skarsgard thing. Bomer is NOT every girls dream. And Skarsgard REALY he might have a nice body but the looks NOOOO. He's got beady little eyes like rats and his teeth, that's not a smile I would want to look at. I say him in a movie the other night , don't remember which one it was that forgettable. It was a fairly new one. The man can't act. Maybe he's a good vampire and that's we're he needs to stay. Pickygirl I agree with all you had to say except with Bomer. I am still holding to what I have said before,that fairly unknowns should play the CG and Anna roles, that way there is no preconceived notions. It has been pretty entertaining looking up some of these hot young things. Michelle3175491 1 year @Linda2961500According to Katie Couric, Ian S. won alot of the poles already pickygirl 1 year Lets get real ladies, The Christian Grey part is someone who can pull off every aspect of the character. NO Ryan Gosling, ugh, No vampire actors, Christian Bale, your kidding right? All everyone will be thinking of how he played" batman", plus hes just not HOT enough. Think not with your favorites, but who has the all of it. CG actor just by being, must be able to turn a lot of womans dream/fantasy. I keep going back to Matt Bomer. I could care less hes gay, but that plays in his favor. He could get so hot with the scenes. He has the total look. Again, remember, its not liking its the fit the part. I also believe that British Actor who played in the tudors is a contender. Its all in the package. I just hope that they select somewho could melt you with a look. I do know this: I won't see the movie if they put either Ryan Gosling or Christian Bale as CG. Pickygirl. CHRISSYP1 1 year lol your a little late to the party hun the Alexander discussion has been going on just as much and as long as the Matt B discussion He is too old dddonna 1 year Alexander Skarsgard... That's his name He has the blonde adonis look, and his pants hang just right off his hips.YUM dddonna 1 year Eric the vampire is the only person I can imagine fitting the " fifty Shades" bill. he is Christian Grey. Sorry, but I don't even know his real name... He's just the only face I can put with the character, he'd be perfect! PERFECT! CHRISSYP1 1 year Matt Boomer is leading the polls? I guess the Polls arent whats important its what the producers and writers want thats important EL is very involved in the making of this movie she isnt going to let it be too far off from the book I dont think. Antonio3314169 1 year @PamperedSweetie emmy is good fo the role of leyla Antonio3314169 1 year gabriel garko all the life beauty-moves-me 1 year @Tisha3330028 I totally agree! If you want to see Matt Bomer and Emma Stone as the main characters then check out my post on 50 Shades of Grey - you'll love it! http://beautymovesme.com/2012/06/23/fifty-shades-of-grey-character-fascination/ Michelle3175491 1 year @klank4818My vote of course is for Ian S. The pic above doesn't really do him justice. He has a ton of videos and pics online...he could so fit the role. Michelle3175491 1 year @CHRISSYP1I totally agree...No!!!! to Matt Bomer klank4818 1 year @Michelle3175491 I've actually never seen Channing Tatum in anything - or most of the other actors on this list for that matter. I was going for looks - strong good looks, full lips. Taylor Kitsch is actually my first pick - got the right look and is a great actor (see him in Friday Night Lights - the show - don't just on the terrible movies he's been in - the man can act). Just read something about them already choosing Henry Cavill. Has anyone heard if this is true? Have never seen him in anything but he could work based on looks (although pic in this article does not do him justice). Of course he'd have to get rid of the British accent. Looking at a lot of these photos and thinking most wouldn't work for me (i.e. Joseph Morgan - not attractive, Ian Somerhadler - too wimpy, Armie Hammer - too pretty, Ryan Gosling - too popular). Not the best line up. CHRISSYP1 1 year NO way Matt Boomer he is too old and used up, stressed looking. He is a forgetable actor and can not command an audience Emily3334114 1 year MATT BOMMER without a doubt, hes the only one that can pull off the CEO look in the suit, and hes so hot and has the stiff "fucked up" look. Michelle3175491 1 year @klank4818Kate Hudson is too old to play a 22 year old. Channing Tatum...really??? He can't act! How do you see him as Christian? I just don't see that at all. klank4818 1 year Good Lord! If they cast Kristen Stewart that would be the BIGGEST mistake. If they're going to cast a vampire they should consider Ashley Greene. But my first pick is Minka Kelly. She's a great actress and can do the innocent bit well. I also vote for either Taylor Kitsch or Channing Tatum for Christian. Kate Hudson or Blake Lively for Kate. Robin Wright or Julianne Moore for Mrs. Robinson. Does anybody out there know who they're considering? Tori3331087 1 year are you ppl kidding me?!? I absolutly see Henry Cavill as christian...the dominering face...n those eyes, he'd be PERFECT Suzie3135774 1 year @Tisha3330028 TOTALLY!! WOULD LOVE FOR THE 2 OF THEM TO PLAY ANA AND CHRISTIAN! ;) Michelle3175491 1 year @Suzie3135774 @DarsinwvI agree. Chris H. would be good for Elliot maybe but not Christian. I am all for Ian to play Christian and I hope he gets the role!!!! Tisha3330028 1 year would love to see matt boomer as christian and Emma Stone as ana i so love these books and can't wait to see who will play all the roles so excited Suzie3135774 1 year Love.....LOVE Ian's eyes.....the dark hair with light eyes!! very sexy and intense! ;) Suzie3135774 1 year @Darsinwv This is true about Ian......But Chris is tied with Thor and Advengers and is bulky. I've seen him in pics where he's leaner.........I feel that when picking Christian it's mostly about his EYES!! Chris has pretty blue eyes but I dunno if they scream DOM, control freak, intensity...ya know!?!? Not knockin him down at all he's handsome in all the right ways, just dunno if he's christian! :) Darsinwv 1 year Sorry, but Ian is tied to the Vampire Diaries and he is to old and to short. Christian is tall and lean. Tall means several inches above 6'0". My favorite for the roll would be Chris Hemsworth. I have no doubt that he could handle all aspects of Christian's personality. Michelle3175491 1 year @Suzie3135774My point exactly. Christian isn't a jock built like a footall player, but rather more lean and ripped, defined with slender physique. He is supposed to look more like a model. Kate2934514 1 year @Alicia3326372 Too old, too short. Kate2934514 1 year @Suzie3135774 You're right. Too beefy just wouldn't be the sleek Christian of the book--or of many of our fantasies of him. Suzie3135774 1 year I have a question.......some ppl are recommending so-to-speak "beefy" guys.....in the book he's not described as beefy but tall, lean, fit right?? Or am I wrong?? I know that in the book he's always gazing down at ana and she comments on how is abs, shoulders, and back are chiseled. Just wondering! :) Suzie3135774 1 year @Kate2934514 THAT'S a good list! lol the top two are my picks! ;) Antonio3314169 1 year @Linda2961500 @Michelle3173100 recently he have maked a conference to Rome and he told that maybe will have the role of Christian Grey....fantastic! http://www.gossipetv.com/50-sfumature-di-grigio-gabriel-garko-confessa-di-essere-vicino-alla-parte-commento-al-libro-47418 use google translator Alicia3326372 1 year Am I the only one to think Ryan Phillippe would be great? I don't even care for him all that much, but I just couldn't help but see his face when I read the book. Mbroussard76 1 year I'd like to see Micheal C. Hall as Christian !!!!!!! The hair he has as dexter and his jawline is perfect!!!!!! Farrah-Belle3325997 1 year @ivyashley i guess channing is too muscular.. Farrah-Belle3325997 1 year Darius Campbell is so hoot! though he's a singer, but his looks would perfectly match the Christian Grey! Michelle3175491 1 year @Carmela3323860 my vote is for Ian most definitely. But how can u compare him with Justin timber lake? Carmela3323860 1 year Matt Bomer, Ian Somerhalder or Justin Timberlake! I would pick one of them! As for Ana any young thin female actress can play an annoying Ana! Kate2934514 1 year @jenh82 Of those 5 I'd go with Kellan Lutz. jenh82 1 year Chris Hemsworth, Kellan Lutz, Chris Pine or Channing Tatum! I would pick one of them. Or Paul Walker, he might be a little bit older than Christian Grey but he's still beautiful!! :) jenh82 1 year @NICKY2012 I agree!! Chris Hemsworth is beautiful and exactly who I picture as Christian..I think Kellan Lutz would be a good fit too. Michelle3175491 1 year @Taylor3309328 you don't have much vision apparently TeamRobertTurkey 1 year MUST BE "ROBERT PATTINSON" ♥ ivyashley 1 year I imagined Tatum Channing though... ivyashley 1 year Eric off of trublood too would be VERY nice, that's a crap picture but, hes nice. ivyashley 1 year PLEASE put Ryan Gosling, he would make the perfect arrogant sexy Christian!!! Spank-me 1 year @Linda2961500 @Michelle3173100 @Antonio3314169 YES to Antonio. I agree with everything you said Linda. Not only can he tie me up too he CAN most certainly spank me till I'm silly.
