Should Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder Star in 50 Shades of Grey?

by at . Comments

Nina Dobrev hasn't read Fifty Shades of Grey yet, but with her name floating around as a possible fit for the female lead, she might want to get on it!

"All I've heard is that it's very scandalous, to say the least," the Vampire Diaries starlet told MTV. "I haven't read it, but I'm intrigued ... who knows?"

"I mean, well, I guess we'll have to see."

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder

With co-star and real-life boyfriend Ian Somerhalder expressing interest in the role of Christian Grey, it's no surprise Dobrev has been linked to Anastasia Steele.

Working with Ian a second time isn't as appealing to Nina as you night think, though. She said if she did play Anastasia, she'd prefer another guy.

"I don't know if that's a good idea," she said of herself and Somerhalder both starring in the movie adaptation of EL James' erotic love story trilogy.

"I think it's best for any of the actors on The Vampire Diaries to kind of do their own things ... and create new characters ... if it's the same people, the fans will alway see me as Elena and they'll see him as Damon if we do a film together."

"I think it would be better [if] either he should get it or I should get it, but I know that apparently he's really great for the role, so I hope he gets it!"

Another pair of famous vampires, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, have been talked about at length as good fits, especially considering that James initially modeled the books after Edward and Bella from the Twilight saga.

I just cant stop watching vampire diaries.. and i think everyone knows why!! Ian Somerhalder is so Hot he will be perfect for Mr Grey in 50 shades of grey.. just cant wait for the movie.


i think nina dobrev and ian somerhalder would be the PERFECT! anastasia steele and christian grey hope they BOTH get it!


When i picture grey all i see is eric dane


Nina dobrev and Ian somerhalder would be perfect for this but this is what i think and it all comes down to if they want to do it i hope they :)


Don't worry guys, James doesn't want to see RP or Kristine Sewart play in 50 shades in a recent interview. She said that it would be "weird" THANK GOD! I love Ian especially the character he plays in Vampire Diaries, so I wouldn't mind seeing him play Christian but honestly the role should be given to Matt Bomer. Everyone should google this man. Look at this picture That CLEARLY IS CHRISTIAN! The hair, the eyes, how he looks in a suit. He looks mysterious! I have no idea for Ana though. I want her to look more cute and innocent than sexy. I don't think M. Fox or O. Wilde should play the part.

@ Christianna

i think that ian is the right person for this role but i dont think that it will be ok if anastasia will be playing by nina dobrev. i dont think she is suitable for that role. anna is a sweet girl who does talk to christian. nina is sexy and hot but not that kind of person who needs...

@ Christianna

yes matt bomer will do good but still think ian must get it.. anyone of those 2 will be good.


Please, Bret, whatever you do...DO NOT CAST Kristen Stewart! Definitely cast Ian though!


I vote for Mr Bean to play Christian and Snooki from jersey shore to play Anastasia


OMG Edie! you're so right. Henry Cavill is the perfect Christian Grey. And about Ana, I've thinking in Jennifer Lawrence, dunno why. But Emmy Rossum and Alexandra Daddario would be great as Ana as well.


I think Ian as Christian would be a great choice, but not Nina. I love her. I love their chemistry on "Vampire Diaries" but I think it would mess that up having them both star together in 50 Shades. I like the idea of Evan Rachel or even bring Michelle Williams back into the spotlight.


I am a huge fan of 50 shades. I refuse to see the movie if they cast Kristen Stewert. I know Im not the only 1 who will refuse to see it.
