Ian Somerhalder on Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Casting: Bring It On!

by at . Comments

Ian Somerhalder is one of several stars talked about as a potentially great fit for Christian Grey in the upcoming film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.

He's leading THG's poll on the subject (below), as a matter of fact.

Asked about it on Ryan Seacrest's radio show Monday, The Vampire Diaries heart throb admitted he's heard the speculation about his casting, and approves.

Asked if he's interested in starring in the film, Ian said: “Potentially. I absolutely would be up for that. I have the book and I just started reading it."

"That would be a pretty incredible thing, and hopefully that could pan out. Yes, beyond the shadow of a doubt I think that would be a phenomenal opportunity!”

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

What do you think? Should Ian play Christian?

Who would be the best fit among these stars?

Ian has all the looks smiles,jaw lines..he rich beautiful did I mention rich...the eyes lord the eyes! Hollywood wouldn't have to do a thing Hes is christian..if you don't think he is the perfect Christian you cant see in the eye of the author! Ian is Christian..Christian is Ian! That's it final answer!


i loooovvveee ian so of course i voted for him i vote and i will and i don`t know i can`t imagine some one else when i`m reading the book so he`s m.r grey even better i hope he gets the role !!!


Ryan Phillippe is my No. 1 pick.


Eion Bailey is still in the running for me!


GASPARD ULLIEl!!! He would make the PERFECT Christian Grey~ Hes just so sexy! His eyes are so amazing. And he was so indescribable in Hannibal


Garrett ohhh yesss. Perfect- with that deep voice, those eyes, that enigmatic smile. I can see him playing the dominant, control freak Christian, playful Christian, and the vulnerable boy underneath. It's gotta be someone that has some depth. Garrett def has what it takes to bring him to life on screen.


I think Ian Somerhalder is great but Ryan is perfect for the role. After having read all three books, Ian is no longer the correct fit. Ryan definitely!


I think that Rob Lowe is who I was imagining when I thought of Christian Grey. He is so damn sexy. Oh my...
