Fifty Shades of Grey Movie: Who Should Play Christian and Anastasia?

by at . Comments

Amid word that E.L. James' best-selling novel Fifty Shades of Grey is being developed into a movie, speculation has already arisen as to who should play the leads.

The NSFW book's protagonist, Anastasia Steele, and her troubled, controlling man, 27-year-old millionaire Christian Grey, will surely be sought-after roles.

Which actor would best embody the young, attractive, tall, finely dressed character with "unruly dark-copper-colored hair and intense, bright gray eyes"?

Or the smoking hot seductress - she of the "vulnerable qualities" but "mahogany hair," "big blue eyes" and "flawless" skin - that he can't get enough of?

Who should play Anastasia?


I think Stephen Amell would be a perfect Christian Gray, the lead on the new show Arrow


Matt Bomer is born to be the perfect Christian Grey!He has got all the fifty shades of Mr Grey in his acting skill,in his divine beauty,in his look.


I would love to do a write in... Tom Hardy!!! He would make a sexy Christian Grey. Warrior(:


eric lively, the actor in pink's 'please don't leave me' video. i came across him today and he is the epitome of christian grey.

Has anyone not watched Hell on Wheels? Go to Anson Mount's webpage and look at the pictures of hi "cleaned up" OMG He can look evail and cruel, but when he smiles it is so hot. Let's add him to the mix!!!!!

@ Sue Peterson

I agree hes so hot, cleaned up or not. And his voice is perfect.

@ julie

I agree he's gorgeous, however he is over 40 and Christian is only 27


SIMON BAKER from The Mentalist!! Can't get any sexier. Justin Beiber, are you kidding? What in the h... does he know about sexy and he sure as heck couldn't perform ANY of those sex scenes.This movie calls for a REAL MAN, not a kid. Hell, he shouldn't even be allowed to see the movie!


I think that Alex O'Loughlin(from the back plan) should play Christian or anyone is good as long it's NOT Justin Bieber.


I reckon if Christian Bale was abit younger he'd be perfect fo the role.


Timothy Olyphant is the perfect Christian Grey. I have pictured him in the role ever since I began reading the first book.


Everyone is TOTALLY missing the point. NONE of the actors mentioned can carry a candle to prowess of Bradley Cooper. He would be FANTASTIC at the part! I only wish I had a way to push him into him into lobbying for the part! His was the ONLY face I imagined when reading the book. He does a fantastic job of conveying anguish and sophistication. Christian Grey IS Bradley Cooper!
